New Pokémon Go Update Adds Appraisal System

by Daniel Tack on Aug 22, 2016 at 03:45 PM

Pokémon Go is being updated to version 0.35.0 on Android and 1.5.0 on iOS devices.

One of the major changes implemented in this update is the addition of the Pokémon appraisal system.

Players can actually call upon their leaders (Candela Valor, Blanche Mystic, and Spark Instinct) to give them pointers about the attack and defense capabilities of their Pokémon, making it easier to find the strongest ones for battle.

To read the full rundown on what Niantic has supplied in the form of patch notes, head to the official announcement.

Our Take
While I'd obviously love to see things like trading, raids, battling, UI improvements, more
Pokémon, more robust gym mechanics, and faction interactions, any update is a good update for Pokémon Go. Let's hope we see a lot more in the future. Check out my assessment of Pokémon Go here.
