How to Use the Pokémon Go Search Bar


1 of the best current excellent-of-life updates to Pokémon Go has been the new strings you can enter into the search bar when viewing the list of Pokémon in your bag.

It is effortless to neglect that the search bar itself did not exist when the game was initially released, but merely looking by name was just the begin.

And now, thanks to the the new appraisal method, you can search for Pokémon according to their IV rating, from * all the way up to four*, which indicates great IVs.

So here’s what you will need to kind to obtain all the things you will ever will need.

Search by IV, HP &amp CP

Pokémon have person values (IVs) for Attack, Defence and HP (Hit Points). Every worth ranges from -15, and these are then combined into an general percentage, which explains the gaps amongst the levels beneath.

Search string Outcome
* Anything with IV from -48.9% 
1* Anything with IV from 51.1-64.four%
two* Anything with IV from 66.7-80%
three* Anything with IV from 82.two-97.eight%
four* 100%
*,1*,two* Anything with IV from -80%
cp1000-1499 All Pokémon with CP amongst 1000 and 1499
cp-1500 All Pokémon with CP under 1500
hp100-200 All Pokémon with HP amongst 100 and 200

This method tends to make it extremely quickly to obtain low IV Pokémon to transfer them and absolutely free up bag space. A comma is equivalent to “or”, which indicates you can combine searches, as in the final instance.

An &amp indicates “and” which is subtly distinctive to “or” in some searches. There is also a “not” operator, so you can use !four* to obtain all Pokémon which are not 100%. 

You can combine search terms. Right here are some examples:
