Now there are even more potential updates. From recent reports, Pokemon GO may gain even more influence from the Pokemon series. This new addition would come from the relationship between Ash and Pikachu. That’s right, soon, we may be able to have our favorite Pokemon follow us around in the game map!
This information is thanks to coding enthusiasts elfinlazz and AeonLucid. The point of the new feature would be more than just aesthetics. When a Pokemon is following you, it gives you more candy the more you walk with it. That way, given enough time, that one Dratini you caught could eventually become a Dragonite, even if you don’t catch any others. So don’t trade away your rare Pokemon out of frustration. You’d probably regret it.
