IVs (Individual Values) are hidden numbers that determine if a Pokemon is stronger than another Pokemon of the same species. See how to check your Pokemon's IVs and how to unlock the Judge function in Pokemon Sword and Shield, the Isle of Armor, and the Crown Tundra DLCs.
In order to check your Pokemon's IVs, you need to have the Judge Function unlocked.
Go to Options by tapping X in the Joy-Con.
Go and choose the Pokemon in the menu.
Go to your Boxes by tapping R on the Joy-Con. You can also go to a Rotom terminal in any Pokemon Center to access your Boxes.
Tap the + icon on the Joy-Con to view the stats of your Pokemon. Ratings which represent your Pokemon's IVs will be displayed at the right side of the screen.
|Decent||1 - 10|
|Pretty Good||11 - 20|
|Very Good||21 - 29|
|Unlocking the Judge Function|
You can unlock the Battle Tower by finishing the main story of Pokemon Sword and Shield and going to the Battle Tower in Wyndon.
You need to win 6 times in either Single or Double battles in the Battle Tower to get the Judge Function, as a reward for unlocking the Poke Ball Tier.
After winning 6 battles, you will be rewarded with the Judge Function and will be able to use it at any time.
