The coding that hints at the prospect of Niantic soon introducing buddy Pokémon that follow your avatar around, was first noticed in a github depository, which uploaded all of Pokémon GO's data from newest update.



The coding shows off three different possibilities for how 'buddy Pokémon' will appear on-screen:

-Perched on player's shoulder
-Flying next to player
-Walking behind player (could be tied in to the height/weight measurements previously discovered in Pokémon GO data mine

Would be pretty cool to see Niantic implement a feature that's available in other Pokémon games (Pokémon Yellow, HeartGold/SoulSilver). Can you imagine walking round town with a Zapdos as your 'buddy Pokémon' though?...



So much yes.

PewDiePie's been trying to build that hype for his new game over the last few weeks especially, with these bizarre screenshots.

Just this morning Pokémon Go Hub went ahead and published a Pokémon Go spawn rate chart, which uses over 100 million data points from Poké Radar’s “prediction algorithm dataset.” In English, this sh*t is highly accurate.

Some interesting things to note:

Pidgey is more common than Rattata...

Dragonite is the 'least common' after the (non-existent) Legendary Pokémon.


After that, the least common Pokémon are:


Gyarados (how'd they spell it wrong in that table though...) has the same spawn rate as Kabutops.

Male Nidorans are more common than female Nidorans.

You'll encounter 21 Pikachus for every 10,000 Pokémon you encounter...
