A new patch is available for Pokémon GO that introduces Pokémon Appraisal. This patch is labelled 0.35.0 in the app and 1.5.0 on the iOS App Store.

Pokémon Appraisal allows players that are on a team to get approximate evaluations of their Pokémon's IVs, similar to the stat judge in the core series games. Pokémon Appraisal can be accessed from the menu button on the Pokémon status screen. Pokémon Appraisal is done by the player's team leader, and the specific wording of the appraisal varies between them (although the information conveyed is the same). If the Pokémon has a height or weight that differs significantly from the average, it will also be commented on during the Pokémon Appraisal.

Additionally, Pokémon that are ejected from Gyms now return fainted instead of at 1 HP. This has been applied server-side, so will occur regardless of whether or not the patch has been downloaded.


  • Implemented Pokémon Appraisal: Trainers will now be able to learn about a Pokémon’s attack and defense capabilities from their Team Leader (Candela, Blanche, or Spark) to determine which of their Pokémon have the most potential for battle.
  • Fixed a bug that kept defeated Pokémon at 1HP; these Pokémon will now return as fainted Pokémon. We’re working on rebalancing the training battle, stay tuned.
  • Minor bot fixes
