    It's super useful. Helps determine which pokemon to evolve or power up so you're not wasting your stardust and Candy on high CP pokemon that have lousy stats.

    Its minimally useful, just to give you a general idea of what your base stats are at. The base stats dictate final stats.

    It's not useless, but it couldn've been a lot better.

    I wouldn't expect anything better. It's a direct copy of what's included in the handheld games.

    Yeah, I didn't expect anything better, but I don't agree that it's a copy from the Gameboy and DS games. In those we can view our actual stats... There doesn't seem to be any real reason to hide stats in Pokémon go.

    Yes, you can view stats, however you can't view IV's. I'm pretty sure this is the same thing. Just not as intensive.

    True enough, although I'd say the way the stats are displayed in the games makes figuring out IVs a much simpler prospect. I never bothered getting too deep with them in the games to be honest.

    I suppose they had to simplify it for general people though, I'm sure you're aware that Pokémon is a much more complex and nuanced game than most uninitiated folks seem to think

    It's useless only for those who don't understand the stats in the game.

    For those who do, it's an easy way to help choose which pokemon you should lean towards evolving/keeping.

    Can you refer us to a site that will teach us to understand the stats in the game?

    The text is useable enough, if you understand what the text is saying. You're looking for anything that says it's the best. I forget what Mystic is, I have no idea what Valor is, however Instinct says it can battle with the best of them. Then it when it lists the top stats, you're looking for HP and Defense for a defender, and HP, and Attack mostly for Offense, if Defense is there too, even better. I have a 10CP Charmander right now that has all three stats topped out. This is telling you the hidden value, the higher the better.

    No its not just you. It really isn't saying much about the pokemon and it gives us back the CP of the pokemon which we already knew.

    Not true, the final CP of a Pokémon is determined based off the hidden Individual Value points of the stats. A Pokémon with all three stats with maxed IV's will have a higher final CP than one that doesn't have maxed out IV's.

    I only use it if I have two Pokémon at the same CP and I don't know which one to evolve.

    And for ****z and giggles like above (Y)

    Pokemon GO Appraisal Chart - Pokemon GO Hub

    Basically the appraisal will:
    1. State overall worth of your pokemon (Wonder is best)
    2. State hidden stats (Exceed calculations = maxed out stat)
    3. State pokemon size

    Hidden stats that are perfect all around will show hp equal to attack equal to def, then follow up by saying it exceeds calculations. I have a snorlax and a rapidash with these stats, which means he has perfect hidden stats (all 15).

    It's actually quite useful when combined with an IV calculator. If you know for sure what the strongest stat is, it removes some of the guess work.

    Thanks for all the replies! I guess it depends on how "serious" the player is that is playing to know if it's useless or not. I just casually play(never played any Pokemon game before ) . So the Appraisal info seemed pretty vague and useless to me. Now I understand the hidden meanings a little more. Thanks.

    Check out Trainer Tips video on the Appraisal system. He explains what each "phrase" means as far as your IVs. If you are Team Valor, he noted in the description that he mis-spoke in the video for one of them.

    Eh, I'm not a huge fan of it; but it does have merit by showing stats of the specific Pokemon.

    Same here. I really don't bother with it all that much.

    Appraisal's useful in a way, gives you some general ideas about the Pokemon. Especially when it comes to Stats, which is good for gym battles, I guess.

    It's alright. It says some of my Pokemon's are decent but I do well with them at gyms so I keep using them.
