Niantic Labs has just confirmed that the "Buddy" system is the latest feature being added to Pokemon Go. This update will allow players to select their favorite Pokemon as a buddy, and it will then walk alongside them at all times. We don't know all the details yet, but players will be getting candy for walking with their buddy, similar to the way hatching eggs works. There could potentially be some other rewards as well. Niantic has put out a few images on its website showing what the buddy system will look like in action. Here's what you have to look forward to. (Niantic)
