Exchange Pokemon for Candy Faster
You can now select multiple critters of the same type by pressing and holding on the Pokemon you want to exchange trade for candies when you meet Professor Willow. You don’t have to scroll through long lists of duplicate Pokemon to get what you want.
Revamped Buddy Feature
The revamp improves the candy totals a Buddy Pokemon can collect. This is based on the distanced it travels with the Pokemon Go app open.
Better Accrued Candies Reporting
You will get reports on the number of candies you have accrued instantly on the Buddy information screen. The individual Budy Pokemon screen will show the total distance walked by the Buddy Pokemon hence giving you a better and easier way to track all your metrics.
