Lead Pokemon Walks With You
The follow feature has finally made its return to Pokemon! On the The Isle Of Armor the Pokemon at the head of your party will follow behind you when you're out in the overworld. Each Pokemon seems to have a different walking speed as well!
Some Pokemon Follow You Over Water
Some Pokemon will also be able to follow you while you traverse over bodies of water! Ones who aren't capable of floating/flying will temporarily disappear while you're riding your water bike.
