Pokémon Go ‘buddy system’ could let trainers bond with Pokémon

“Players might finally be able to interact with their favorite Pokémon in a future update, based on a system discovered in the game’s code. Programming enthusiasts elfinlazz and AeonLucid dug into the latest version of the mobile hit and found suggestions of a Pokémon “buddy system,” which some think could be Pokémon Go’s next new feature.

Pokémon Go Hub broke down the data into layman’s terms. The proposed buddy system appears to let players walk with a single Pokémon at a time, similar to how Pokémon eggs can be carried around for certain distances. Doing so rewards the player with a number of candies. That’s crucial for aspiring Pokémon masters who hope to evolve their rarer finds; evolution requires a set number of candies that can only be collected by catching several of the same Pokémon.

It’s possible that the buddy Pokémon would appear on-screen with the player’s avatar as well. There’s code for “medium,” “big,” “flying” and “shoulder”-bound Pokémon in AeonLucid and elfinlazz’s finding.”

Nico felt like a hundred skeletal butterflies were resurrecting in his stomach. ‘Three days? I – I suppose that would be okay.
