Pokemon Go’s latest update has made it much easier to examine IVs.
Update v0.149.0 for Pokemon Go, which is currently available on Android, comes with a major change in how the game displays Individual Values (IVs) for the different Pokemon.
This appraisal system allows players to compare Pokemon and find out which of them are better/worse at different attributes. The only problem is, the verbiage used in the old system wasn’t standard or clear. This, coupled with the RNG nature of the attributes themselves, confused many players and made the process harder than it should be.
No more, however, as the new system (spotted by The Silph Road) has a much clearer layout. As you can see in the screenshot below, there’s now a clear indication when a Pokemon’s attribute is at 100%, and the attributes themselves are easy to understand.
The Silph Road also notes that you’re able to flip between the different Pokemon easily when you want to compare.
What may be the greatest QoL update in Pokemon GO history comes in v0.149.0: a majorly revamped in-game appraisal system! Each IV is now visible on 3 progress bars and the stamp turns red for 100% IVs. You can even switch between Pokemon with a single tap for quick comparisons! pic.twitter.com/hZa8VA9XBl

If the update is available on Android, this usually means it’ll soon be out on iOS across the game’s various regions.
