Pokémon Go Buddy: How to choose the very best

March 13, 2017
Which Pokémon is the best to choose as a buddy and walk with for extra candy? Here’s the list!

Just like Ash chose Pikachu, Pokémon Go gives you the ability to choose Buddy Pokémon to take with you on your adventures. Sadly, the Buddy Pokémon doesn’t appear on the map with you when you walk around — at least not yet! — but it does appear with you on the avatar button and on your player screen.
