    The rumor mill is busy with talk of a Pokmon Buddy System coming in a near-future app update.

    In fact, if you Google the words "Pokemon Buddy System has been data mined" your first hit should land you in an article that gives plenty of details about it. I'm abstaining from posting a direct link due to unfamiliarity with the rules for posting direct links to sites outside of the Mobile Nations "network," and I already got a slap on the wrist once before (and "infraction" they called it) and I don't care for another one.

    Update: I have been asked to provide a link to the article, so here it is: http://pokemongohub.net/pokemon-budd...em-data-mined/

    Here is an excerpt from that article:

    • Pokemon Buddy System is using the same server side distance calculation as the one used for Pokemon Eggs
    • Walking your Pokemon Buddy will award you with candy. The amount of candy is yet to be determined.
    • You can walk the same Pokemon Buddy multiple times, but there is likely a daily limit for obtained candy
    • You can walk with only one Buddy Pokemon at a time
    • There are various looks of Buddy Pokemon
      • Medium size
      • Big size
      • Flying next to you
      • Rests on your shoulder

    So, are you looking forward to this Buddy System? Do you think it will be well received?

    That would be a nice addition, one that's rarely been in the cartridge games, and one that people really like.

    I don't want to sound too stupid here, but oh well!
    I do not understand what the buddy system looks like or how it will work. I am new to all Pokmon games except of course for Pokmon GO.
    Can anybody post a brief explanation? Of exactly how it will work?

    Niantic has made an announcement today about the feature, confirming that it will in fact be implemented.

    You will find screenshots of the buddy system in action at that site.

    I’m only guessing here, but I think we will see the update before the next week (seven days) are up!

    Niantic has been excellent about issuing [plenty of] updates so far.
