Yes, I still play Pokemon Go and as the years have gone by, the game has only gotten better. A somewhat recent discovery for me is the fact the in-game search supports search strings. You can type in specific values into the search bar to filter Pokemon by region, whether they can be mega evolved and more specifically, their appraisal rating.
You know when you get your Pokemon appraised and you coloured bars, with 3 stars and filled bars meaning a 100% I.V rated Pokemon? Appraising one-by-one is frustrating and time-consuming, which is why I am delighted to discover that you can filter your Pokemon based on their appraisal rating.
As you can see, I only have 6 100% Pokemon.
My most recent acquisition from the Porygon Community Day is a Porygon-Z which is a 3 star 100% I.V rated Pokemon. Honestly, it was luck, but what a fantastic Pokemon and with a third added move, it’s pretty darn good in PVP as well.
By typing a value between 0 and 4 followed by an asterisk, you can see your Pokemon by their rating. Have you ever wanted to just filter your Pokemon by their lowest rating and then bulk select followed by transfer to free up space instead of going through each one and appraising?
The ratings appear to mostly equate to star ratings, with 0 being 0 stars, 1 being one star, 2 being two stars, 3 being three stars and 4 being 3 stars full Pokemon.
As I discovered, I had a lot of Pokemon (ignoring the shiny ones) that were wasting space in my Pokedex that I could remove in bulk. I was able to free up considerable amounts of space by typing 0* into the search field.
There are a lot more ways you can filter and query your Pokemon and surprisingly, a lot of Pokemon Go players don’t even know they exist. You can even combine them to query Pokemon from a specific region with a particular move and so on. You can find a better list over here on the Niantic site.
