Pokemon Go Buddy System

Pokemon GO system has been data mined from the latest app version. We will be taking our favorite Pokemon for a walk soon. This concept is known as Buddy Pokemon The Buddy system was first seen on AeonLucid’s PogoProtos, the biggest Github repository for analyzing Pokemon GO network traffic. The Buddy system was introduced in the codebase in 0.35.0 update.

This is a short version of what Buddy Pokemon update holds:-

  • 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

All of these changes are already seen in the base code, and by the look of it, we could be getting the Buddy system in future updates.
