Pokemon GO (Free) is in the process of being updated to version 1.5.0 for iOS and 0.35.0 for Android,and the new update comes with one big new feature, Pokemon Appraisal. According to the patchnotes, Pokemon Appraisal allows trainers to learn about a Pokemon attack and defense capabilities from their Team Leader (Candela, Blanche, or Spark) to determine which of their Pokemon have the most potential for battle. It’s good to see new features getting implemented because as popular as the game continues to be, it still doesn’t let you do that much besides hunt for Pokemon.
According to the patchnotes, the developers are still working hard on several new and exciting features. They have talked in the past about trading, and I hope that feature isn’t too far into the future because it will be another fun way for people to use Pokemon GO to socialize. The update should be hitting soon, so let me know what you think of the new feature once it’s up and running.
