Buddies in Pokemon GO are mostly a way to get candies for extremely rare or legendary mons. However, the upgrade to the buddy mechanic has given your closest Poke-partner more useful features. Here’s everything you need to know about buddy souvenirs in Pokemon GO.
Buddy Souvenirs in Pokemon GO
First, lets lay down the basics of how your buddy Pokemon can find souvenirs. To unlock the souvenir finding ability you need to reach the Ultra Buddy level with one of your mons. This is done by getting earning 150 hearts with a single creature.
How to Get Souvenirs
This will take a while, but you can get seven hearts easily as long as you walk enough, feed it until it’s full three times and pet it once a day. Once it reaches the Ultra Buddy level, then you’ll just need to keep it on the map with you by feeding it and the Pokemon will occasionally find souvenirs.
As long as your Ultra Buddy level mon is on the map in Pokemon GO, then it will be able to grab some souvenirs and bring them back to you. Here’s a full list of all 15 items your buddy can collect:
- Flower Fruits
- Tropical Shell
- Tropical Flower
- Skipping Stone
- Lone Earring
- Cactus Fruit
- Torn Ticket
- Small Bouquet
- Snowy Pinecone
- Beach Glass
- Chalky Stone
- Pretty Leaf
- Stretchy Spring
What They Do
Now it’s time to learn what all this hard work goes towards. These souvenirs, according to Niantic, are essentially just reminders of your adventures with your buddy. That’s it. You can view them from the buddy page, but they don’t do anything but sit there.
It’s essentially just a marker of how long the Pokemon has been set as your buddy. Fortunately, the souvenirs are confined to the buddy screen so they won’t take up any space in your inventory.
That’s all there is to know about buddy souvenirs in Pokemon GO. If you want to learn just about anything else when it comes to the game, then just check out our Pokemon GO Guide Wiki.
