Since the new update, one can select a buddy Pokémon. Walking a certain number of kilometers then yields one candy for that Pokémon.

It seems that the number of kilometers per candy is specific to the Pokémon. How can I know how many kilometers are required for a Pokémon?

    @Aequitas Niantec is slowly rolling it out instead of all at once to prevent server load. – Rapitor Sep 13 '16 at 13:53

    @Rapitor It seems like it's unavailable for IOS users, something to do with the app store approving updates taking a couple of days or something. – Aequitas Sep 13 '16 at 13:55
