Take your Pokemon Buddy for a walk in an future update

The buddy system in Pokémon Go recently uncovered by data miners has been confirmed by Ninatic.

A post on the official Pokémon Go blog gives some insight into the Buddy Pokémon system saying it opens up “unique in-game rewards and experiences”.

In practice players can choose one Pokémon as their buddy, who can swapped at anytime, and will be given rewards such as Candy when “walking” their buddy.

The Buddy Pokémon does not appear in the game alongside the player avatar but doe appear on the player information screen.
