Pokémon Appraisal

Pokémon appraisal allows Trainers to learn about a Pokémon's attack, defense and stamina capabilities from their Team Leader (Candela, Blanche or Spark) and determine which of their Pokémon has the most potential for battle. The overall determining factor is based on how high the IVs are for a given Pokémon.

The version 0.149 introduced a more accurate system. The exact number of each stat is displayed by the length of the bar. Trainers can also sweep left or right to check multiple Pokémon.

The original appraisal only told the Trainers certain extend of the strongest stat (only 100% IV could be exactly determined from the conversation without using a third party tools).

How to Appraise

Appraisal Ribbon

Each Pokémon has unique abilities that affect their ability to attack and defend during a battle. Trainers can look at the HP and CP of their Pokémon for basic information on its abilities. For more detailed information on a Pokémon, trainers can ask their Team Leader to appraise their stats by observing the following directions:

  • In Map View, touch the Main Menu Button Main Menu.png
  • Touch Pokémon Button Pokemon.png
  • From the list, select a Pokémon.
  • Open the Menu Button Menu.png
  • Touch Appraise


The bars on the bottom left corner display the stat of a Pokémon's Attack, Defense and HP respectively. A stamp is shown above the appraisal bars to represent the IV range of the Pokémon, similar to the original system. The IV groups can be searched by typing 0*, 1*, 2*, 3*, or 4*.
