"Pokémon Go" just recently confirmed its buddy system. Not only will the new system be the next best thing for the game, but it will also don some patch notes that can be utterly effective in the existing version.

As some may know, the latest "Pokémon Go" patch looks to welcome the supposed feature of the game wherein fans can stand alongside one of their favored Pokémon while walking. Apparently, the walking part is only the beginning for the said update that is set to arrive in a few days.

According to I Digital Times, the "Pokémon Go" buddy system gives a Trainer the privilege of earning Candy for the buddy Pokémon as they walk an allocated distance. As some may know, candies are essential for a creature's evolution.

The said feat also comes with some fixes as aforementioned, such as making the selection of smaller Pokémon in "Pokémon Go" much more accessible. Eggs that hatch without the corresponding animation being shown was also fixed.

As per Game Rant, the switching of networks that became an issue in the past is also to be addressed. "Pokémon Go" is said to be more efficient now in terms of performance compared to the previous wherein the application stops updating or hanging in between the said network change.

A few text fixes were also said to be included in the update for "Pokémon Go," as well as the "Pokémon Go Plus" support. Those who are also worried about the bots from the game can rest assured that Niantic is taking action.

"Pokémon Go" users are also recommended to download the app only from Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store, as the game does not support jail-broken or even rooted hardware. Keep posted for more gaming news and updates here at GamenGuide.
