Pokemon GO’s Upcoming Update Will Include New Appraisal System And More

The latest Pokemon GO version update is beginning to roll out for Android and iOS, and includes a revamped Appraisal system and more.

The revamped Appraisal system brought by this update makes it much easier to check your Pokemon’s IV stats in Pokemon GO, making it more like the IV Judge from the mainline games. You can check out the details below:

  • Appraisal system works similar to the IV Judge element in Pokémon Sun & Moon
  • Your Pokémon has a bar for the Attack, Defense, and HP stat
  • The more filled these bars are, the better your Pokemon is
  • There are also buttons to the left and right to let you skip between Pokémon
  • This system also shows how large a Pokémon is and where it was caught
  • If a Pokémon has perfect IVs, it gets a red stamp

In addition to this, the update also contains several other tweaks and changes, as well as a hint that Shadow Pokemon and Team Rocket battles are coming soon:

  • This update also confirms battles with Team GO Rocket grunts
  • You will be able to capture Shadow Pokémon left behind by the Team GO Rocket grunts
  • There will be Battle Minigames using Charged Attack gameplay
  • Provides a UI change to Trainer Battles, grouping things together for each Pokémon
  • The update shows the amount of Pokémon and Shields left and the current Pokémon’s CP
  • The new attack button has been moved back down to beneath the list of Pokémon’s attacks
  • Search for male, female and genderless Pokémon in the Pokémon list
