Appraise

In the update of Pokémon Go to version 0.35.0 (Android) and 1.5.0 (iOS) the Appraise feature became available to Trainers. This implementation of Pokémon Appraisal allows Trainers to learn more about the AttackDefense and Stamina stats of their individual Pokémon.

Every Pokémon species has a set amount of Attack, Defense and Stamina. However, Individual Value  stat bonuses set Pokémon of the same species apart from one another. For example, every Gengar will have set stats of:

Attack: 204
Defense: 156
Stamina: 120

With Individual Values, a Gengar may have anywhere from 0 - 15 extra stat points for each stat for a max total of 45 extra stat points. A Gengar with perfect stats would have the following:

Attack: 219 (+15)
Defense: 171 (+15)
Stamina: 135 (+15)

Significance of Stats
Increased Attack = Pokémon will deal more Damage
Increased Defense = Pokémon will take Reduced Damage from enemy Moves
Increased Stamina = Pokémon will have More HP

How to Appraise Pokémon
The Appraise feature can be accessed by going to the Main Menu, selecting Pokémon and then selecting an individual Pokémon. Once you have selected the Pokémon, select the menu in the bottom right of your screen. You will see Favorite, Appraise and Transfer. Selecting Appraise will prompt your Team Leader to analyze your Pokémon.

Depending on the Trainer's assigned Team, the specific Team Leader will present the analysis of the specific Pokémon that was selected. Blanche (Team Mystic) or Spark (Team Instinct) or Candela (Team Valor).

How to Decode Team Leader Appraisal Analysis
Once Appraised, each Team Leader will advise how strong your Pokémon is in a relatively cryptic manner. Luckily the following information will help you to determine approximately how many bonus stats your Pokémon has based on the phrases of your Team Leader.

I lol'd.

Avi-Wan Kenobi said...

So which is more important, overall or individual?

I have some pokemon with breathtaking (mystic) as overall and then just the Seco d highest for iv.

And then second highest for overall, and highest for iv.

The yellow one isn't "Team Spark". It's "Team Instinct". Please update.

Anonymous said...

Team "Instinct"

Not Team Spark

Anonymous said...

As much as I like Spark though, please rename Team Spark to Team Instinct so it will match with the other teams.

Anonymous said...

Um, hi. You wrote Team Spark instead of Team Instinct lol

Anonymous said...

I'm not offended, but Team Spark is really Team Instinct.

Hey, do you think this feature is working well ?

I have a Flareon powered up to its max possible for my level. When I launch the appraise option I receive the phrase "Overall, your Flareon looks like it can really battle with the best of them!"

So, great! But then, at the end, I get the phrase "Its stats are really strong! Impressive."

How can that be possible ?

I also have a Jolteon (also powered to its max) that have the same thing in reverse: the overall is "your jolteon is really strong" but the stats are "the best I have ever seen".

Something is not quite right, isn't it ?

Haha sorry everyone. Team Instinct has been updated accordingly!

check for messahges when more than one of the stats are 15

Eevee anon, I think you should think again. There's nothing strange in what you described.

So, what does the size have to do with anything? If a pokemon is XS or XL the stats page tells me that by the weight or height stat without an appraisal. Does size relate to performance or other stats in any way? Why bother commenting if not? Does an XS pokemon have advantages over another... as a defender, attacker, during evolution or pouring up? Seems kinda pointless to mention it without it meaning something to the trainer. Just curious.

I also got curious about what size has to do with performance.. But I have a feeling that it might be for the speed of dodging and the some extra power on the auto attacks..

The overall analysis has a range too:
Overall, your [Pokemon Name] looks like it can really battle with the best of them! (37 - 45 Bonus Points)
Its stats are really strong! Impressive. Stat bonus of 13 - 14

So, in this case, the stat that it mentions is your highest stat and it is either 13-14. The other stats could be equal or lower (i think they tell you if it's equal).
So, for example, your Flareon could be attk = 13, def = 12, stam = 12, total 37.

Having overall stats is more important. You can have the top overall but no 15's so it will only say the 2nd phrase for individual which is perfectly fine. Obviously 3 13/14's is better than 1 15 and 2 9s

Anonymous said...

Love the game, thank you
Can we get the HP sub category linked to the HP's instead of CP.
When a programmer copied the code they forgot to change the link to HP instead of CP...common mistake.

Anonymous said...

Can you post percentages in the range of stats?! to see the IV´s people are more familiar with 0-100% pls

Anonymous said...

I have an Eevee that appraisal told me its Attack was its best , then said its Defense was as well. They were also the "best ever seen" (team instinct) so I imagine when that happens both are at 15...(as someone above mentioned whether you are told if they're equal)

Of course, this Eevee's CP is lower than other Eevee that I have...so, would I be better leveling this one's CP? Even if it's 200 CP behind a few others?

Looks like my Snorlax has some great stats. It told me it battles with the best, brought up hp, attack and defense... And said its stats were impressive. May not be perfect, but that tells me it's something better than most.

Looks to me like Puddin (that's what I call him) is a fighter. Thanks for deciphering this for me. Till now I was not sure what to make of it.

Sheri Briley said...

This going to sound bad, but, does size matter? When it comes to battles?
Also, will the stats stay the same after evolution?

Anonymous said...

Any IV rater that includes the appraise system responses to narrow in on its perfection %?
