Now that Pokemon Go has introduced Generation 2 Pokemon, a lot of changes are happening in the game, including changes to movesets, candy rewards, and even the distance you need to walk a Buddy Pokemon in order to get candy. Here are the changes that trainers have noticed so far related to how Buddy Pokemon work.
Trainers on Reddit’s The Silph Road community have been pooling their resources to figure out which Buddy candy distances have changed and what the distances are for Generation 2. Here are preliminary findings on the Buddy walking distance needed to get one candy for Generation 2, as compiled by Redditor johnivan-cosmo on The Silph Road. These are preliminary findings, as they come from a self-reported spreadsheet and still need to be confirmed. Do these match what you’ve seen so far?
