Pokemon is now using the Buddy System*. I can’t help but think of the movie Heavyweights whenever I hear that phrase. Let’s share our buddies!

Mine is my recently caught Dragonair. Isn’t she the cutest? And also way bigger than I thought?

*How to get a Buddy Pokemon:

  1. Update Pokemon Go (I updated mine today and it started with the Buddy thing, thus my excitement and this post).
  2. Tap on your Profile picture
  3. Tap the icon in the lower right hand corner.
  4. Select “BUDDY”
  5. Pick your buddy!

If you walk a certain number of kilometers with your buddy in tow you get one of your buddy’s candies so if you’re trying to evolve or level up one of your rarer Pokemon, make them your buddy!
