Moments ago it was revealed by Lucky Crit, another amazing video “NEW POKÉMON GO UPDATE Buddy System Finally added! How the buddy system works!”.
As informed in the youtube page by Lucky Crit: “In today’s Pokémon GO Episode we’re talking about the latest (.37 & 1.7 IOS) update to Pokémon GO and the changes it brings to the game!
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.37.0 for Android and 1.7.0 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
► Implemented Buddy Pokémon: Trainers will now be able to choose one of their Pokémon to be their buddy. A Trainer can earn Candy for their Buddy Pokémon by walking a certain distance.
► Made it easier to select smaller Pokémon on the screen.
► Fixed an issue where Eggs would sometimes hatch without displaying the animation.
► Improved performance reliability when a device switches networks to no longer cause the application to hang or stop updating.
►Pokémon GO Plus support
► Minor text fixes.
We continue to focus on eliminating bots and scrapers from Pokémon GO. Rooted or jailbroken devices are not supported by Pokémon GO. Remember to download Pokémon GO from the official Google Play Store or iTunes App Store only.

If you nickname your Buddy, that’s what shows up. EG: DalbyFM & Stupid Fish for me and my Karp. Mon shows up as an icon next to your player icon in corner, but isn’t visually running around the map with you. On the Buddy screen, you get a progress bar to your next candy, plus an overall counter for distance. If you walk a bit then switch Buddies, progress is lost. So round out that candy before changing on a whim. *Double tapping Buddy name from player screen goes to Buddy screen. Double tapping Mon from there goes to the Mon’s evolve/power up page
