Pokemon GO: How Far You Have To Walk To Earn Candy For Each Pokemon

pokemon-go-buddy-guide

With the buddy update arriving for Pokemon GO, eager walkers-turned-trainers can check out this guide to see how many kilometres they'll need to walk to get candy for each monster.

The latest update for Pokemon GO is a rather substantial one, allowing players to select one of their captured beasts to accompany them as they walk around. Doing so will award users with candy, which they can then use to power up and even evolve the Pokemon they've selected to buddy up with. However, it would seem that not all Pocket Monsters are created equal, as different beasts require different amounts of kilometres walked in order to secure those sweet, sweet (and sometimes illusive) bonbons.

At this point in the game's life, there are three tiers tied to gathering candy that each Pokemon falls into – they are 1KM, 3KM, and 5KM. This is based primarily on the egg categories that they are sorted into (although that's certainly not the case right across the board), but the rarer the creature, the more distance has to be covered by players in order to secure candies. As a result, levelling up the likes of Snorlax will take a lot longer than a Pidgey, which makes a lot of sense in the grand scheme of things.

Some keen fans may have noticed that the above list is short six Pokemon. Indeed, the monsters that have yet to formally debut in Pokemon GO (Ditto, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, and Mew) are still without any legitimate Buddy stats. There's little doubt that the beasts will find a home in one of the three known categories – provided they don't get their own Legendary-inspired class – when they do make their first official appearance, but for now gamers will have to stick to worrying about the Pokemon they can currently catch in-game.
