How do I pick a buddy in Pokemon go? I don't see the option anywhere when I select one of my favorite Pokemon.
To pick your buddy Pokémon, follow these steps:
- Tap on the photo of your trainer avatar in the lower left-hand side of the screen
- Tap on the "Menu" button
Tap on the "Buddy" option found between "Journal" and "Customize"
Tap on the Pokémon you choose as your buddy
