Well in BW2 we were introduced to a new system of achievements where if you completed a specific task, a guy in any Pokémon Center would award you with a medal, which worked in a similar way to trophies on the PS3 and achievements on the Xbox 360. These tasks included anything and everything from running a certain number of steps to completing the National Pokédex. Would you guys want to see this system return in these games? What other tasks would you like there to be awards for?

I really liked the whole medal system from this game, and I definitely want it to return. If I were to make one comment about it though, I would say that I would rather have medals appear in the top right hand corner of the screen rather than having to go to a Pokémon Center to get your medal. I really did like the system itself though, because I feel like it added an extra challenge to the game. ^^

What do you all think?

    I like the medal system and would like to see it make a return. Although some of them were a bit stupid, the good ones that involve some time and effort make it worth while. Plus it's awesome to be rewarded for walking. :3

I'm not that interested in seeing the feature return. I feel the majority of medals are frivolous in nature.
i can totally relate to this.

I've enjoyed the Medal System in B2/W2, and I'd be very pleased if they returned. It gives you a (small, albeit) reason to experiment, and test out things you wouldn't have tried had you played the game normally. And although I like Mr. Medal (Teddy Medal, bad pun and nickname to him for me xD), I'd like it a little more if he surprised you by showing up after a Gym. Not to sound lazy, but it's not always desirable to see him standing next to the PC. Him popping up like a rival can keep you not only surprised, but on your toes, in case the rival actually does come. xD

I'd like to also see some silly, surprise medals thrown in. It gives a small spotlight on what Gamefreak could like about the games, something that the players don't really have much of a clue about, myself included.

I have a habit of searching every trash can anyways, so I enjoyed being rewarded for that one too.

That's a great idea! I'd like to see one that's along the lines of "Have a pokemon knocked out by a magikarp" xD. That one might actually be a little difficult to achieve. Particularly if self-knockouts like self destruct didn't count
Just use a Pokemon with 1hp and hope the magikarp has flail haha.

    I like the idea of those medals. :3 I love those medals that are easy, but are just so cool. Like that trash one. :3 I dunno why, but I felt as if my life was completed after I got that medal. >:3

I never made an effort to achieve medals, I just played the game as normal and got heaps of medals anyways from that. I think it's a good feature but the achievements aren't very good. There should be better ones related to battle like 'Use Thunder on a Magikarp' etc.

I would love the for Medal System to return. Like I've said before, it gives you a reason to keep playing the game, even though some of them are like, impossible to get. But yeah I like the challenge of getting as much medals as I can. :3

I would like to see it come back! It wasn't hurting anybody and it wasn't something that you HAD to do to progress with the story or your pokedex. Completing medals was solely for personal achievement and gave no advantage one way or the other. I say keep it in there for those who love trophy hunting :3.

Jan 19, 13 at 3:38pm

    I don't mind if they bring it back. but like you said, Brady, they should put it somewhere on the screen. Maybe a small bit on the bottom, and it scrolls passed, saying the medal you got. Then you can go onto your medal box and find out. :3
