Get ready to pick a favourite Pokémon as the Buddy System has started to be rolled out to Pokémon Go users.
It was revealed earlier this month that the next update for the ridiculously popular app from Niantic would see you be able to bond with a Pokémon of your choice, allowing them to follow alongside you to earn some candy as you walk with them.
You can only have one Poké-buddy at a time though and there is a limit to the amount of candy it can win each day. From the looks of early screenshots posted by a Reddituser with the update, your buddy appears on your avatar screen and always on the bottom left of the game’s screen.
However, if you choose to change your pal, which you can do at any time, any progress with that Pokémon will be erased.
