Pokemon GO Buddy Adventure is an exciting upcoming feature for Niantic's Pokemon GO, allowing you to interact with your buddy like never before. Here's everything you need to know about Pokemon GO Buddy Adventure.

Pokemon GO Buddy Adventure

In Fall 2016, Niantic added buddies to Pokemon GO. By selecting one of your Pokemon as your buddy, you were able to earn candies as you walked in the game with your buddy at your side. There were also a few challenge quests to help encourage walking with your buddies.

The Buddy Adventure is a major expansion to this game feature, providing a wide variety of ways for you to level up and play with your buddy. While the trailer for the new game mode did not provide any specific details as to what you'll be able to do with your buddy, a player is shown feeding his buddy Squirtle berries, petting it, and battling other trainers.

Although, in a release provided by Niantic following the release of the trailer, several more details were released. Apparently, by walking with your buddy, feeding it berries, and taking photos of your buddy out in the real world, you will increase your buddy level, just like friendship level with members on your friends list.
