As with usual candy, this can be used to power up or evolve your Buddy Pokemon. Users can login to their Pokemon Go account on an Android phone equipped with the latest update and assign yourself a buddy Pokemon.
This is very interesting, and supports the "whale" theory of free-to-play mobile games. Both say it will take you into the sport, but it might be worth squarely to stock up on candy in Pokemon Go before the arrival of the second generation.
Despite the doom and gloom news of waning interest in Niantic's immensely popular augmented reality game Pokemon Go, the company is still enjoying huge profit off the game, being named the fastest mobile game to get USD$500 million in revenue.

As previously reported, gamers discovered the details about the buddy system prior to its release. For example, Pokemon that hatch from 10km eggs require 5km of buddy walking, 5km = 3km, and 2km = 1km. Practically everyone has downloaded the game to go out and hunt down their favorite Pokemon creatures in hopes to once again, catch them all. For instance, players may need to walk three kilometers to earn an Oddish Candy and five kilometers to earn an Eevee Candy.

Pokemon GO is a huge hit and while we are hearing that the game is somewhat on the decline, there is no denying the cultural impact it has had on society.
Evolving your Pokemon resets the progress. We have had data mining leaks before which predicted the arrival of many features to the game that soon proved to be true. This buddy will appear on-screen with the player's avatar, which is a cool cosmetic bonus.
As you walk around, you generate a certain amount of sweets per kilometre. A lot of the users have requested for additional features for the app to enjoy more of their gaming experience and to increase interaction with various players.
