The buddy system is set to be added to Pokemon Go in the next update and it’s already high time for players to get ready for it.

Using the buddy system, the players will be able to select one Pokemon as their buddy at a time. Then trainers will need to travel a certain distance with their Pokemon buddies to earn candies. However, the Pokemon which is added as a buddy cannot be used in Gym battles or be traded.

If players want to use the candies received in the buddy system in the best possible way, they will have to select a better Pokemon as their buddy. The main issue here is how would the trainers figure out which Pokemon is the best buddy?

Fortunately, we have that problem covered for you, thanks to the data compiled by Pokemon Go Hub. Here’s the full chart which shows the ranking of the Pokemon for the buddy system.
