How to Get Best Buddy in Pokemon GO 2022

To get to the status of Best Buddy in Pokemon GO in 2022, you need to reach three hundred hearts with your Pokemon of choice. There are a number of ways to do this. First off, giving your Buddy treats can get you up to four hearts; three Berries for one heart if you’re starting from zero. Walking with your buddy can also earn up to four hearts; one for every two kilometers walked. Replacing them for another Pokemon resets progress.

Playing with your Buddy by tapping its icon in AR mode and then petting it with your finger for a few seconds can get you two hearts, and same goes for battling with them, taking a snapshot of them, and spinning a PokeStop or Gym that you’ve never visited with them before. Normally, you can earn up to ten hearts a day, but if the Buddy is in an Excited mood, you can get twice as many. Going through all of these activities should trigger the Excited mood.
