Pokémon Go update Review:
Pokémon Go just updated to version 0.35.0 for Android smartphones and version 1.5.0 for iOS devices as per the post on Facebook by Niantic. The latest version of the game can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and iTunes for iOS.
The main change in the update is a review system by the team leaders. The feature is only offered to trainers who have crossed level 5. Every Pokémon has individual attacks and defense’s. The ability for attack is measured with the war power. The hit points show how much damage the Pokémon can take during a battle. Some Pokémon are oversized when it comes to weight, height, or both, and are marked with an XL tag next to these parameters. All of this affected the performance of a Pokémon in gym battles.
The update makes it simple to understand these statistics, and also helps trainers choose best Pokémon for winning the battles. For example, an attacking Pokémon may be better to take over a gym, but a defensive Pokémon with a high capacity for tanking maybe better at preventing a gym from being owned by another team. Now, when a Pokémon is selected, a third option appears in the menu. This option is called “Appraise”.
Up until now, players have relied on tools made by other Pokémon Go fans online or have used third-party apps like the recently blacklisted PokeAdvisor. Pokémon Go’s creators still have lowered on the use of such tools – at least in the form of a third-party app – and have even permanently barred players from Pokémon Go if “cheating” was detected.

Major Features in Pokémon Go update :
The Appraise option shows your team leader giving you a rundown of the fitness of a Pokémon for battle.
The leaders are Candela for Valor, Blanche for Mystic and Spark for Instinct.
The team leader speaks about the specific strengths and weaknesses of a Pokémon.
The strongest feature is noted, along with comments on the stats, If the Pokémon is big or small, that is mentioned as well.
The appraisal does not include any specific stats itself, so new trainers can get a sense of what the Pokémon can do, without having to interpret any of the numbers.
Adding an IV check feature for appraising Pokémon is definitely a smart move on the part of Niantic, if they want to keep their Pokémon Go audience engaged.
The in-game tool will allow players of all kinds to deepen their strategic planning and maximize their Pokémon team’s potential.
The patch notes promise several new and exciting features lined up for the future.
There are minor fixes that were not documented in the patch notes.
