Pokemon can walk only a certain distance before it gets excited. There are four distances in total:

  • 1km – Common Pokemon (Pikachu, Fletchling, Sewaddle, and others). 
  • 3km – Most Pokemon (Ponyta, Machop, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Medicham, and others)
  • 5km – Rare Pokemon (Larvitar, Dratini, Eevee, Noibat, Goomy, and others)
  • 20km – Mythical and Legendary Pokemon (Xerneas, Giratina, Dialga, Kyogre, and others).

Activities with your Pokemon will only increase your Buddy Level with it. There are four levels that it can earn:

  1. Good Buddy
  2. Great Buddy
  3. Ultra Buddy
  4. Best Buddy

Make sure to interact with your Buddy Pokemon every day and you will eventually reach the Best Buddy level. Aw!
