Trainers,

there was another change to Wild Pokemon encounter mechanics. IV, moves and Combat Power is now random from Trainer Level 1 to Level 29.

This is an extension of the system that was set in place recently. To remind you, the following stats are now unique per player and determined for that player (and his level) on entering the encounter:

  • IV
  • Moves
  • Weight
  • Height

We reached out to a few bot/tracker owners and this is how the system is behaving so far:

  • IV/Movesets appear to be based on level (NEW)
    • 1-29 are all different per level
    • 30+ are all the same

There has been no official statement coming from Niantic, but several dozens players have reported the same observation.
