Pokemon Go update- now with a buddy system!


Pokemon Go update- now with a buddy system!

Pokemon Go is still out there, with millions of players chasing after augmented reality enabled creatures who can fighting and evolve and look really, really cute.

The game is also about to get a brand new update which actually adds some proper new features. The biggest one is the addition of Buddy Pokemon which lets you choose one of your little guys to walk alongside your trainer on screen.

This Buddy will earn their specific candy every time you walk a certain distance, which should be a good way to get closer to those evolves you've been dreaming of. A steady stream of stardust would also be welcome.

Niantic labs also made it easier to select smaller Pokemon on screen and activated support for the Pokemon Go Plus peripheral. This device will let you play certain aspects of the game without needing the phone screen to be on, which should make it more convenient and better for battery life. Not to mention a lot less dangerous when driving- not that we do that!

There are more minor changes on the official site and you should be able to get this update on Android and iOS very soon.
