With the new quest system, there are several quests that ask you to gain a set amount of candy by walking your buddy. The easiest way to accomplish this is to walk a 1KM buddy Pokémon.

In the cases you want to you want to choose a 1km per candy buddy for Special Research stages 2 & 4, and you already have 400 Magikarp candies, here are your options:

1km per Candy Buddies
1km per Candy Buddies

If you still haven’t reached or your’e stuck at stage 6 of “A Mythical Discovery”, we strongly recommend walking Magikarp.

Meta relevant picks:

  • Geodude evolves into Golem, which is useful in variety of combat scenarios and a solid option for most teams.
  • Aron evolves into Aggron, who is often recommended and (unfortunately) used in Gym battles and raids
  • Magikarp evolves into Gyarados, and we all know that Waterfall Gyarados is basically a budget Kyogre, don’t we?
