New Pokemon GO Update Makes The Grind A Bit Easier

Niantic has announced that a upcoming update for Pokemon GO will make leveling up your favorite Pokemon less of a grind. The update will allow players to choose a Pokemon they want to level and allow that Pokemon to gain candy and level up as the player walks.

In a recent blog post, Niantic discusses the details of the new update, saying, “unique in-game rewards and experiences. Buddy Pokémon will appear alongside your Trainer avatar on your profile screen, adding helpful bonuses such as awarding Candy for walking together. You’ll also have the ability to change your Buddy Pokémon at any time.” Niantic has mentioned that fans should be able to enjoy the new update sometime this fall but no exact date was given.

This new feature is a great idea as it will help fans level up their favorite Pokemon in a much more natural way. The game already encourages players to do plenty of walking to catch rare Pokemon and get the necessary supplies to catch those Pokemon so allowing players to level up their favorite Pokemon by doing something they are going to do anyway is a great idea that works perfectly with the flow of the game.

Pokemon GO is out now as a free download for Android and iOS.
