The new Buddy Pokemon update just hit yesterday! Finally I can start collecting candies for my Charmander. I’ve only been able to hatch a single Charmander since I caught one as my very first Pokemon. Now I can slowly accumulate candies to evolve him!

It’s too bad that Niantic was plagued with so many server problems at the start. If they hadn’t had that, they may have been able to roll out all the new features they wanted to add a lot earlier.

Oh well, I’m glad that the game is still seeing some love, as it’s fun to get out once or twice a week, go for a walk, and see what you can catch/hatch.

My question is: Are you still playing Pokemon Go? If so, what level are you? Which Pokemon is your buddy now? If not, what game have you moved on to?

Of course, if you don’t want to talk about about this, then feel free to talk amongst yourselves!
