The latest "Pokemon Go" update which is to allegedly contain the Buddy System has finally been confirmed. However, there are limited conditions as to how far the said buddy can be beneficial.

As some may know, "Pokemon Go" will soon bring forth the update with patch notes that joins the Buddy System, which up to this day has not arrived. Delays may be natural, though the update was promised last Saturday.

According to Forbes, the overdue "Pokemon Go" update has been cordially awaited on but to no avail. Despite such conditions, fans of the augmented reality title are still holding on to what could be next best thing which is the Buddy System, but not all for the said feat is advantageous to the user.

As per I Tech Post, once a player chooses a certain Pokemon for the "Pokemon Go" Buddy System, the assigned creature cannot be used to defend a gym. The designated Pokemon, however, can be used for fighting against a rival gym respectively.

One explanation for this feature in "Pokemon Go" is that the Pokemon is to stay alongside the Trainer throughout the whole game. If the said Pokemon is to be permitted to defend, the creature might detach from the owner.

Some of the latest attributes confirmed for the "Pokemon Go" Buddy System include the candy acquisition after a certain distance that assists in the evolution process. Having an assigned Pokemon to trek all throughout the duration is reportedly what makes the Buddy System vital, especially if the player is to use a different Pokemon to defend a gym.

Is the particular idea for "Pokemon Go" considerably wise? Stay locked for more gaming news here at Gamenguide.
