Search strings for perfect Pokemon

See app

Backstory

A special event happens once a month where one pokemon will appear in abundance for 3 hrs. When you have enough candy, you can evolve it to a more powerful form which comes with an exclusive move.

Goal

Towards the end of the event (last 20 minutes), players will search for high IV pokemon (individual stats for battle) to evolve and get the exclusive move.

Problem

After catching 250 Pokemon, to find the best ones, you have to appraise them, one at a time. This method wastes a lot of time, since you have to swipe to each one.

Solution

Lets find and copy the search strings on github kindly provided by another player. Create a text replacement on the iPhone, paste the string in the phrase. But this is a lot of steps and complicated for some users.

Lets create a code strings copy paste app.

Features

Users were requesting other features that relate to finding perfect pokemon. I decided to go with a tabbed interface as this was consistent with the game ui and players were familiar with this.

iOS users who want to check IVs quickly should take a look at this video. The website I used to copy the string is http://hundoiv.com so you should check it out! Feel free to share! Note: Always appraise as CP can be the same for different levels. #PokemonGO
