Niantic has released a new trailer for the previously announced Buddy Adventure update coming to Pokemon GO.
As some of you may know, Buddy Adventure is a new feature coming to Pokemon GO that will allow players to walk with their Pokemon on the overworld, as well as play with them “in real life” using augmented reality.
Playing with Pokemon in Buddy Adventure will award “Buddy Levels” which unlock new abilities for your Buddy Pokemon:
- Good Buddy: Your buddy will join you on your map, and appear on the new Buddy Profile page.
- Great Buddy: Your buddy can also appear in Pokémon encounters and bring you items.
- Ultra Buddy: Your buddy will point out “interesting places” nearby and bring you Souvenirs – new items found on the Buddy Profile page.
- Best Buddy: Your buddy will sport a Best Buddy Ribbon and gain a CP boost in combat while still assigned as your buddy.
Although a release date for the feature has yet to be confirmed, Niantic has stated that it should launch “by 2020”.
