Niantic was confirmed that the Buddy System feature will come with the next update so it’s time to get prepared. Below we have the complete Buddy Tier list which shows which Buddies are the most efficient. First, here’s how the Buddy System works.

Users will be able to choose one Pokémon as their buddy at a time. When trainers travel a certain distance (most require 2 kilometers) with their Pokémon, they will be awarded candies. If a Pokémon is assigned as a buddy, it cannot be traded or used in gym battles.

In order to put those candies to the best use, there are certain Pokémon that are better to have as a buddy than others. Thanks to the data compiled by Pokemon Go Hub, we know that the top five buddies are Charmeleon/Charmander, Dratini/Dragonair, Omanyte, Kabuto and Grimer are amazing as Buddy Pokémon. And the second tier is Wartortle/Squirtle, Gloom, Weepinbell, Machoke and Haunter.

Below is the full chart:
