Pokemon Go Buddy System Update!

Thought news for Pokemon Go was over? Nope, not yet.

News revealed last week that a new update called the Pokemon Go buddy system was in the creations, which actually landed on iOS & Android this weekend. The update included the much anticipated Buddy System, intended to get trainers to gather candy for their Pokemon without going through the redundant process of recapturing duplicate Pokemon. You gather this candy simply by walking, while the Pokemon Go app is open.

Niantic also gave further information about how the Pokemon Go Buddy System works. Common and mid-grade Pokemon will take 1KM-2KM of walking distance before getting candy, and the rare Pokemon are 3KM of walking distance. Data mining actually states that legendary creatures such as Mew, Mewtwo, Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos will all be assigned a 3 KM of walking distance.

Who will be your first Buddy?
