Buddy Event – Buddy Up

A New Event is coming probably with the name “Buddy Up” focusing on increasing buddy levels and getting more rewards from your buddy.

These are following event features according to the code extracted:

  • Buddy will find you Pokéballs every half hour
  • Taking longer for your buddy’s affection to run out, so it will stay on the map longer
  • Your buddy will bring you more items and more souvenirs more often
  • Easier to get your buddy excited

According to the previous data mine, the Special research had been rescheduled for Saturday, April 25th, 2020. We think the Abra Community Day will be on the same date.

According to previous data mine, It was discovered that the new Remote Raid Passes will be required to join Remote Raid Battle.

Today some new has been pushed and it suggests that the Remote Raid will be available in the bundle of 1 and 3 in the shop.

Note: This doesn’t mean that the remote raid passes will be available only through the shop. There are possibilities that we might get them by spinning Pokestops.
