Pokémon GO updated to 0.37, adds Buddy Pokémon and Pokémon GO Plus support


Pokemon GO has been updated to version 0.37 and with it brings support for Buddy Pokemon and more.

However, it seems that this new version of Pokemon GO detects Jailbreak and Root users and prevents the game from loading up.


  • Implemented Buddy Pokémon: Trainers will now be able to choose one of their Pokémon to be their buddy. A Trainer can earn Candy for their Buddy Pokémon by walking a certain distance.
  • Made it easier to select smaller Pokémon on the screen.
  • Fixed an issue where Eggs would sometimes hatch without displaying the animation.
  • Improved performance reliability when a device switches networks to no longer cause the application to hang or stop updating.
  • Pokémon GO Plus support
  • Minor text fixes.
Pokemon GO is coming to Android Wear

Of most importance is the new Buddy feature that allows you to choose one of your Pokemon as your buddy. Players will earn candy for your buddy Pokemon when they walk with their buddy Pokemon.

The new update also adds in support for the new Pokemon GO Plus accessory that assists players in finding Pokemon and Pokestops.
