One of the latest features to grab the attention of the Pokemon GO community has been the buddy mechanic, which allows players to choose a companion character that can help them in a variety of ways, like finding locations or catching creatures. A buddy can help in these manners to an even higher degree if they are excited. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know to get your close companion excited covered for you!
Pokemon GO Buddy Excited
There are a variety of activities players can do to help get their companion excited and reap the benefits of doing so. Each of these activities will grant you a point towards getting your buddy excited. A total of 32 points is needed for Trainers to get their companion to this particular state. Each of the activities also has a 30-minute cooldown besides the 2km walk, so you will need to wait for at least a half-hour before you attempt to complete an activity to help get your companion excited.
Pokemon GO community member 7eveen_ put together a handy chart that details what activities players can do and how many points they will get from completing them towards reaching their companion to a high-level of excitement. You can find this chart from 7eveen_ in the image below:
The benefits of having your buddy having a lot of enthusiasm are that you will earn double hearts towards leveling up the status of your companion, and the walking distance needed to collect candy will be reduced when your companion is in this state.
