The Pokemon Go buddy update has arrived!


Trainers assemble!

If you’ve put that Pokemon Go app down because it had all got a little bit samey then you’re going to want to dive right back in and check out Niantic’s latest update!

The ‘buddy’ update is here! It lets trainers pick a fave Pokemon who will follow you around the map as you’re out walking and catching Pokemon and hatching eggs.

Not only do you get a cute Pokemon pal keeping you company on your travels but that Pokemon will also find candy based on how far you walk!

So if Pikachu is wandering around with you, they’ll get an extra candy for every kilometre walked.

This is SUPER handy if you rarely spot certain types as you’ll be able to evolve and upgrade them!

Now fingers crossed they sort that tracking system out next…
