The often confused one is confused again and would appreciate a clue.
My last remaining Johto research task is to earn a candy with my buddy. I’m stuck at my desk most of the week so switched yesterday to a buddy with a 1km candy distance. While I wasn’t sure why, the buddy-candy tracker showed me at .4 km out of .5 km this morning. I’ve drifted a few feet here and there all morning, but would probably take the rest of the day to finish that last .1 km.
Checked it a few minutes ago, and noticed it shows me at .4 km out of 1 km now. Now I’m really confused. I’m sure something in Niantic’s notices explain why the buddy distance was cut in half earlier. And also why the distance reverted to full just a few minutes ago.
Can anybody explain it to me, or point me towards the game news item that told us, please?
