As we all know Niantic has been hard at work on making Pokémon GO better than ever, and now that the servers are stable they can start focusing on new features – Introducing Buddy Pokémon!

As revealed in a post on their official website, each trainer can pick one Pokémon to become their buddy, which gives you new in-game experiences and rewards – such as that specific ‘mons Candy. They will appear alongside you trainer in the profile screen (and technically in the overworld as well), and can be changed whenever and wherever. No official day on when this update will go live, but Niantic promises that it’ll be “just around the corner.”

So who are you going to choose as your buddy Pokémon? And what other features do you want to see in the app?
