What Is Pokémon Go’s New Appraisal Feature?

Pokémon Go has a new update, which adds an interesting new Appraisal feature. At first glance, it doesn’t seem like much. When you click on Appraise your team leader will come up telling you how great your Pokémon is. Seriously Blanche chill; it’s just a Ratatta. The good people on the Internetz however have come up with a way to decipher the hidden meaning behind these ambiguous Appraisal phrases.

Pokemon Go New Update Appraisal What Does It Do

Below is a full list from Pokémon Go on Gamepress that gives ballpark ranges for the Individual Value (IV) of a Pokémon based on what is said about it. Pokémon Go players who have never gotten into competitive Pokémon training before may have zero clue as to what IVs even are. In layman’s terms, they are hidden stats that point to a Pokémon’s natural battling talent. Check out the comparison table below.
