Pokemon GO "Buddy System" Will Give You Candy for Walking Your Pokemon
Pokemon GO is still working out the kinks of its unexpectedly booming game, and now frustrated users may have a much easier way to get candy. Some eagle-eyed users on Github have noticed a new feature called the Buddy System, which will allow you to take your Pokemon on walks and receive candy in return. 

It's often difficult for Pokemon GO players to evolve their Pokemon, since the only way to get candy is finding a specific Pokemon in the wild. But now, users have noticed a "Buddy System" in the code that will allow you to receive candy while walking with a certain Pokemon. The feature will track your walking distance, and the Pokemon will give you candy every time you reach a certain distance.

There isn't too much information about the feature yet, including the amount of candy that will be awarded, or exactly how far you need to travel. But according to Otaku, you can only walk with one Pokemon at a time, and you can walk the same Pokemon multiple times in a day. but there will be a daily limit for candy received. The Pokemon will also come with different appearances, such as big vs. medium size, as well as flying next to you vs. sitting on your shoulder.
