    What we know about the buddy system
    Niantic has rolled out a brand-new feature for Pokémon go, and it's actually pretty cool. You can now select one of your Pokémon as a buddy, and earn extra candies for walking with that Pokémon. Remember Pokémon yellow where Pikachu followed you around? Yeah like that. Well in theory, since the Pokémon doesn't actually follow your avatar around. It does however, attach an icon to your player icon. Pokémon find candies after traveling a distance that is half of the distance needed to hatch their egg. So for example, Pikachu hatches from a 2 km egg and thus finds a Pikachu candy every 1 km.

    Note: There are a few exceptions to this rule. Pokemon that hatch from a 5km egg find a candy every 3km not every 2.5km - they rounded it up :). The starter Pokemon... Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle, need to walk 3km to find candies.

    This update has not yet been released in all regions but never fear because it will only be a few days until it is accessible to everyone.

    Good news for Pokemon Go fans
    This is great news for the Pokémon go community. After a rocky start with various bugs, crashes, and botters... Niantic finally seems to be getting this unbelievably successful game under control. Many players have reportedly been revitalised and are picking up the game again to give this new feature a try.

    Update: There are reports that your buddy Pokemon has a chance to find multiple candies at the same time. No word yet on how often. Stay tuned.
