Pokémon Go is a mobile game that has been released for iOS and Android at the beginning of July. In a short period of time, Pokémon Go has become one of the most played mobile games out there and the number of people who play it increases with each passing day.

Today we will talk about a new feature that this game has just received, thanks to the latest update. It seems that the team leaders have finally something to do in this game, as according to reports, they will now be able to teach players about a Pokémon’s attack and defense capabilities.



Niantic, the developer of Pokémon Go, said that the team leaders have a new ability called “Pokémon Appraisal”. However, it is good to know that you won’t need to find a gym in order to speak with your team leader.

To access this new feature, just open the Pokémon Go game on your mobile device, select the Pokémon that you want to know more about and, after that, tap on the round button that’s located in the lower right-hand of the screen in order to open the menu. Once you do this, you will see the old “trade” option that allows you to sell your Pokémon for candy, and a new option called “Appraise”. Once you tap on the “Appraise” option, the team leader, Spark, Blanche or Candela, will pop-up on the screen and will ask if you want to know more about the Pokémon you’ve selected.

After reading the text, tap on the screen again to continue the conversation and the team leader will tell you about your Pokémon’s weaknesses and strengths. This way, you will know how to react when you are fighting a Pokémon in the gym.
