Psyducking finally? I mean it's really troublesome to use IV calculators and if they want to discourage the use of external tools, then they need to introduce their own official software.

I wonder just how many people are naming their Pokémon inappropriate things just to hear Blanche/Spark/Candela comment on its size.
I mean, I sure didn't do that. Because of my maturity. Which I have.
My hypothetical Galar team:
Spoiler:
Rillaboom, Toxtricity, Grimmsnarl, Coalossal, Polteageist, Frosmoth

Type combos I desire:
Grass / Fire
A real Grass / Electric
A proper Grass / Rock

yes i like grass type what of it

It helps a little bit at narrowing down the stats but I will still use poke assist, it might help for the Pokemon where poke assist gives a massive range of possible IVs
There are many forces in this world.
Some are good, some are bad.
Some we can see and some we can't.
Some we know about and others we are yet to discover.
Don't let anyone tell you anything is impossible.
For there is no one in this world you can truly know for sure.

So yes, as I expected the team leaders are now also IV judges, similar to those found in the core series games.
hmmm i still wish it told us the 15 15 stats.
They do. I can only attest for Blanche since I'm on Mystic, but I'm sure they'll all have a variant of the following.

First the leader will mention the overall IV rating:

81-100%:
"Overall, your [Pokémon nickname] is a wonder! What a breathtaking Pokémon!"

65-80%:
"Overall, your [Pokémon nickname] has certainly caught my attention."

50-64%:
"Overall, your [Pokémon nickname] is above average."

0-49%:
"Overall, your [Pokémon nickname] is not likely to make much headway in battle."

The ranges I used may be off by a percent or two.

Then the leader will also call out the best stat the Pokémon has:
"I see that its best attribute is its [stat]."

If there are multiple ones, then:
"It is matched equally by its [stat2]."

Then if the IV is perfect (15), they'll say:
"Its stats exceed my expectations. It's incredible!"

If the IVs are 13-14:
"I am certainly impressed by its stats, I must say."

If the IVs are 8-12:
"Its stats are noticeably trending to the positive."

If the IVs are 0-7:
"Its stats are not out of the norm, in my estimation."

The analysis is pretty lame ... not useful at all ... it would be more useful if it listed what type the attacks are most effective against and what defense is most effective ...
Have you not played any Pokémon games before? Or are you completely in the dark about type effectiveness?

If so, then I suggest studying up:


And then bear in mind 0x effectiveness and 4x effectiveness are not applied in Pokémon GO.

IMO having an IV judge is incredibly useful as I don't have to constantly tab out just to get an idea whether or not I should invest in a particular Pokémon. Rather than hoard 20 Eevees and check each one individually, I can literally appraise as soon as I catch and transfer out if need be.

Those who have played core series Pokémon games will find these appraisals very familiar as the IV judges in cores series games use similar comments when rating individual Pokémon IVs.

Thank you, but I've played before. I was just making the comment that it would be more helpful to provide something more useful then just saying Nice Stats ...

Love this feature! Been using it in conjunction with the IV calculators to find spreads and narrow them down and found out I have a perfect IV Rapidash which the leader seemed very complementary about... It's really useful to be able to get a quick idea of how useful a Pokémon will be as soon as you catch it so that you don't have to bother holding onto it if it's bad.
