Pokemon Go Guide: How Far You Have To Walk To Earn Candy With Every Pokemon GameGuides Mobile  Pokemon Go Guides Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go has been a phenomenon of unprecidented proportions for the mobile market and for Nintendo. The addition of a special update that will allow fans to walk around with their favorite Pokemon in toe, will only increase the intensity of the popularity surge. Our Pokemon Go guide will let you know how far you will have to walk with every Pokemon in your pokedex to earn a candy to level up your buddy.

After you have assigned a Pokemon to your character as their buddy, you will walk with them and a bar will fill up based on the distance you have walked with that specific Pokemon as your buddy. Once it fills, you will earn a candy that you will be able to put towards your stockpile to level up that Pokemon. We have broken it down by distance starting wtih 1km and going up to 3km.

    this was interesting to me, because I’ve been trying to earn extra candy to power up my snorlax. At first, it was always 1.25km but I noticed a few days ago it increased to 5km. I’m really glad I evolved into an ivysaur before this. Maybe it had to do with the halloween event or something I don’t know.
