Niantic, the developer of Pokémon Go is getting ready to release a new update for this popular game. According to reports, soon enough you will be able to choose your favorite Pokémon as a “buddy”.

After choosing a Pokémon to be your buddy, it will show up next to you in your trainer profile screen and next to your avatar icon. In addition, while you walk together with your Pokémon, it will give you rewards such as Candy and other good stuff.

Niantic claims that your buddy will provide unique in-game rewards and experiences, but it didn’t explain exactly what other benefits you will get while walking with your favorite buddy. We’re not sure yet when the update will be released, but earlier rumors were suggesting that it will come out sometime this fall.

We remind you that Pokémon Go was a real success when it was released at the beginning of July. In just two weeks after its launch, it was downloaded over 30 million times and things seemed to go in the right direction, but now, according to Bloomberg, the game is losing many gamers with each passing day. In fact, there are other games that are winning gamers because of this, such as Clash of Clans, but we will explain you more about this today in another article.

In order to lure fans back to Pokémon Go, Niantic will need to bring a major update that will make some of the players to try this game once again. If Niantic doesn’t come with a decent update, there are high chances that Pokémon Go will die sooner than expected. However, as soon as we will find more information about the upcoming Pokémon Go update, we will let you know.

What are your thoughts about the Pokémon Go game? Do you think that Niantic will release a decent update for Pokémon Go this fall?
