A new feature of the 0.35.0 update in Pokemon Go is an appraisal system that allows the player to learn more about their Pokemon from the leaders of the teams they picked: Mystic, Valour or Instinct.
Want to know how this appraisal system works and what the comments actually do? Check it out below –
Essentially, there are certain phrases that are issues issued by the leader of your respective team that allow the player to gain more information about their Pokemon, particular the Individual Value (IV) of them. It’s a pretty interesting concept and certain comments note a certain range of IV for a specific Pokemon.
Here a few examples from each team leader – Candela, Blanche and Spark:
|I’m blown away by its stats. WOW!||Pokemon has perfect IVs in at least one base stat.|
|It’s got excellent stats! How exciting!||Pokemon has IVs of 13 or 14 in at least one base stat.|
|Its stats indicate that in battle, it’ll get the job done.||Pokemon has IVs of 8 to 12 in at least one base stat.|
|Its stats don’t point to greatness in battle.||Pokemon IVs are below 8 in every base stat.|
|Overall, your (Pokemon Name) simply amazes me. It can accomplish anything!||82.2%-100%
(37/45 – 45/45)
|Overall, your (Pokemon Name) is a strong Pokemon. You should be proud!||66.7% – 80.0%
(30/45 – 36/45)
|Overall, your (Pokemon Name) is a decent Pokemon||51.1% – 64.4%
(23/45 – 29/45)
|Overall, your (Pokemon Name) may not be great in battle, but I still like it!||0% – 48.9%
(0/45 – 22/45)
