Pokémon GO update adds Pokémon Appraisal, no more need for calculators

Rather than strip the game of important functions, the latest Pokémon GO update actually added a major function to the overall experience.

Niantic has made sure that you no longer need to log into any third party calculators to judge Pokémon’s potential. The new “Pokémon Appraisal” function will lay out the specifics of each monster you catch, allowing hardcore and professional players to select only the best to train.

For the rest? It’s a one-way trip to Candy Land.

This was one of the main reasons players sought out third-party apps, so it’s a more than welcome addition, especially now that everyone has equal access to it. When the update launches, simply ask your team leader their thoughts on a specific monster. He or she will to judge your Pokémon’s attack, defense, chances of success in a gym battle, and overall potential.

Other updates include minor bot fixes and the base for new functions that will be added later.
