Niantic has recently released a new feature for the game, and it is called Buddy adventure. Under this new feature, the Buddy Pokemon follows the character on the overworld map. Also, now players can play with Pokemon and feed them berries.
Pokemon Go Holidays event has also started & it will stay live in the game until January 1, 2020, in your local time zone. The following Pokemon will be seen more under this event: Stantler, Cubchoo, Cryogonal, Pichu, Pikachu, Raichu, Sneasel, Delibird, Snorunt, Sandshrew (Alola), Vulpix (Alola), Snover.
Cut to now, Niantic is aware of the issue where Buddy Pokemon loses Buddy Progress ( including Buddy Level) after they are evolved. However, this only applies if the Pokemon being evolved is not your active Buddy. In the meantime, players are required to set the Pokemon they are evolving as active Buddy first. Have a look at the official statement, which confirms the same.
