Pokémon GO Buddy System Incoming

Previously leaked and now confirmed by Niantic Labs, soon you’ll be able to take your favourite Pokémon with you as you explore your world in Pokémon GO!

You’ll be able to select a Pokémon to tag along beside you as you walk, picking up items and various Candies for you to evolve your Pokémon, as well as unique in-game rewards and experience. No other details have been said at this point, but the Buddy System should arrive with the next Pokémon GO app update.
