That's because the appraisal is about their hidden stats, not their Combat power. If you trained that Meowth to the maximum level, it will supposedly out perform others of the same level. No two Pokemon are alike, even when you catch the exact same Pokemon over and over because they have a bunch of hidden stats that differentiate them, just like in the main games.
And CP is a metric of the hidden stats, which a 10CP pokemon isnt high in. The appraisal system is broken. It told me, my 50 CP Magikarp was as good as my 652 CP Magmar. I forgot what she said but it was favorable towards both. I dont see how the hidden stats could even place Magikarp at the same level as that Pokemon

It's not that you have to hold a gym for over 21 hours, it's that you can only redeem Pokecoins every 21 hours. Oftentimes I'll get a pokemon in a gym and just redeem immediately since I know they won't be able to hang out in there for long, and I have no intention of taking over any other gyms that day.
My highest number was 7 and I lucked out on getting that bc I was out at 5:30AM before most people got up
