What does Pokémon Appraisal actually tell you in Pokémon Go?

The new update to Pokémon go brought Pokémon Appraisal to the game. The information it tells you I’m still trying to decipher.

For example, when I apraise my strongest Pokémon a 1500 CP Vaporeon, I get the following information:

Overall, your Rainer is a wonder! What a breathtaking Pokémon!

I see that its best attribute is its Attack.

Its stats exceed my calculations. It’s incredible.

Your Rainer is tinier than any we have on record. Astounding.

The first line seems like just filler and the last line is already denoted by the size markings on my Vaporeon. I get the general idea that it is statistically strong and it has good attack from lines 2 and 3, but does it mean that the attack IV is perfect?

How exactly do you relate the appraisal to your Pokémon’s stats?
