Pokemon Go Showcases Scoring System Successfully Decoded, Shorter Pokemon Receive Lower Scores

Trainers, a group of four Pokemon Go players has successfully deciphered the scoring system for PokeStop Showcases and generously shared their findings with the community.

Bmenrigh, sellymeKong, LemmoritoSensei, and MiniBenoit have managed to decode the existing scoring system used in Pokemon Go’s PokeStop Showcases. Interestingly, the discovery suggests that shorter Pokemon tend to receive lower scores.

Their breakthrough reveals that the score calculation takes into account the Height, Weight, and IVs (Individual Values) of the Pokemon. Every individual factor undergoes scaling and is subsequently multiplied by specific score constants outlined in the gamemaster file. Here is the formula:

score = Scaled Height * 800 + Scaled Weight * 150 + Scaled IVs * 50

For a more detailed understanding, the players have shared a series of nineteen Tweets. Feel free to explore the tweets below for further information.

A Pokemon’s score is inversely proportional to its height, in other words, shorter Pokemon have lower scores.

  1. The way of the world. Short people are discounted, too, regardless of their potential contributions.

  2. We had 4 accounts catch the same Pokémon with 4 different points. Why are they different per trainer?

  3. *gasps* you mean in a showcase where it specifically states it’s a contest for heaviest and tallest pokemon, shorter ones don’t score as well??? The humanity!!!
