The developers of Pokémon Go have already teased that the revised buddy system is within reach, now there is again a mountain of clues in the last APK of Niantics pocket monster game, what you can do with your buddies in Pokémon Go in the future.

The launch of the new sidekick 2.0 in Pokémon Go seems imminent. Recently there were hints in the APK 161.1, and now, in the latest PoGo version with the APK 0.163.0, which Android users can already load, there is a whole flood of lines of code that deal with the revised buddies system , Already on December 13, 2019, the developers of Niantic announced that something could soon happen with regard to the buddy system and now it actually seems to be only a matter of time.

As the Pokémon Go Hub authors report, with the latest APK a lot of code lines for the sidekick 2.0 have already been implemented in the client. It was already rumored in advance that the buddies you use can go through different friendship and even emotional levels, and that their satisfaction can also decline if you don't care about your buddy.

You can do a lot with your buddy, besides feeding there are data strings for "Care", you can go for a walk with him, take snapshots with him, fight with him in arenas and raids, start skirmishes with him against Team Go Rocket and all kinds of other things ,
