Buddy System

The new Pokemon Go buddy system lets you select a single Pokemon to be your buddy. As your buddy, they will generate a candy for you every 1-3km depending on their species. This table shows you a number of helpful statistics about your potential buddies:

You might want to prioritise buddies that will evolve quickly to complete your collection, or you might be a battle trainer eager to get the most powerful Pokemon per kilometre walked, or you might just want your childhood favourite by your side, regardless, this information will help you make your decision.

Too see how your newly empowered buddy can be used best in battle, check out the Best Attackers and Best Defenders tools. With your favourite Pokemon by your side, check out Trainer Gear to make sure you've got all the best possible equipment to help you on your adventure.
