Pokemon Go Companion System Is Coming in Fall

Helen Keller September 08th, 2016 Pokemon Go    MmoGah News

It has been more than one month since Pokemon go was released, the game has steadily located in the mobile game industry throughout the world. Within the last month, Pokemon go was downloaded for more than 500,000,000 and the whole world was crazy about it. Even though now Pokemon go is not as hot as the beginning and some players choose other fun games, it is still the giant among the mobile games. What’s more, there is really a good news! New Companion System will be added to the game, and I guess that will get your exclusive attention again.

The official has announced on September 2:

Hi everyone,

It’s been a busy summer and, in addition to battling bots and fixing bugs, we’ve also been busy working on some new features for our Pokémon GO Trainers. As you know, we recently released the new Pokémon Appraisal feature, which helps Trainers identify which Pokémon has the most potential for battle. Today we wanted to let you know about a new feature for the game that is just around the corner.


The next addition to Pokémon GO will be Buddy Pokémon. You will be able to pick your favorite Pokémon from your collection to become your buddy, opening up unique in-game rewards and experiences. Buddy Pokémon will appear alongside your Trainer avatar on your profile screen, adding helpful bonuses such as awarding Candy for walking together. You’ll also have the ability to change your Buddy Pokémon at any time.

If you have a difficulty in choosing which pokemon you want as your buddy, don’t worry! You can change your buddy pokemon any time you like to. Which means you can train any your favorite pokemon through walking around, set a buddy pokemon and it will open up in-game rewards and experiences, such as candy to help level up that pokemon. Maybe you want some rare pokemon to be your buddy but you have not, and then you can come to Mmogah.com, we will help you capture what pokemon you like.

However, the buddy pokemon will only show in the avatar, as well as in a small bubble beside your usual avatar icon on the map. Players won’t see your buddy pokemon walking beside you on the map, what a pity! Therefore, we just hope that Niantic will earlier add that nifty cute little feature. Anyway, we will be still glad to enjoy the new buddy pokemon.


There is no timeline yet on when Niantic plans to release the new feature on pokemon go. What other new features will be added in the future. Let’s wait for them together!
