    Default The Medal System

    Discuss medals here! How many do you have, and which is your favourite? What do you think of the system? Is Mr Medal weird? And so forth.

    Info on the system: http://www.serebii.net/black2white2/medals.shtml

    I'm a bit short of 50 myself (only got 5 badges and too busy atm to play much). Haven't looked much into trying to get more yet but will probably do so once I have beaten the game.

    (Also Mr Medal is possibly related to Scott imo.)

    Some of the medals seem rediculous to get, such as getting 30 people in one Funfest mission or getting 1000 points in one (I guess you would probably get those two at the same time...)

    yeah, there are a couple like that. Some of the medals just seem impossible to get.

    Black 2 I have a little over 50, I'm not trying to really get any though since White 2 is my main copy and I plan to restart Black 2...eventually(Probably in a year since there's a bit of stuff I need to get out of Black 2, mainly Join Avenue since I have my EV shops in there).

    White 2, I'm close to 50, I'm not really trying to get any of them as of now though, for me, Achievements I do after I finished most of the game.

    I like the addition, of course I probably will never get them all, I never can, and this time it's because I lack Wi-Fi which is needed for a few different Medals. Oh well, I'll be getting as many as I can.

    That's basically the point. These are basically Achievements like in other games, and like other games you have those that are very hard to get for one reason or another. It's all doable in the end, some are just very time consuming or require a need of people.

    Agreed. I cannot get 30 people in one Funfest mission, let alone 10, because I don't have many people that I know that play Pokemon. There are even some medals that I found were almost impossible to get in my game due to the way that I actually play it. For example, there's almost no way that I'm going to get the Born to Battle medal if I don't try now as fewer people play the Gen V games, because they're all playing X/Y. Hidden Grotto Adept was a bit of a nuisance as well because it seems that I've waltzed into all of the grottoes but I haven't even got the medal, even when going in twice. Guides on the net aren't really helping either and seem to be a bit ambiguous as to the steps you need to do. (most of them say "Find all the Hidden Grottoes" but what does it even mean? Does it mean just physically entering them or initiating the battles with the Pokemon inside?) Other ones that I couldn't even get at the rate I play the games are Exp. Millionaire and Capturing Spree. How on earth am I going to get those medals?

    To get the hidden grotto medal you have to enter all of them. There's one on Route 3 that can be a bugger if you don't know it's there; you have to surf to find it. Catching Spree was one I got from transferring pokemon from Diamond to Black 2. Transfer enough pokemon and the medal will pop; if not just go to Route 22 or somewhere along there and catch everything that pops out. You can release them all later.

    Exp. Millionaire... That one was a pain. I got it by spending a day audino-grinding outside the Dragonspiral Tower, evolving and leveling up pokemon for my pokedex. I took a lvl 1 bagon all the way to salamence, and a few others from lvl 1 up to fully evolved, and eventually the medal guy appeared. Took me a while, though.

    I feel your pain on the funfest missions one. Where I'm at there is NOBODY I know at all who even plays pokemon. So I'm also SOL when it comes to the 30 people in one mission, and probably the friend codes ones, too.

    As long as you know how many Hidden Grottoes you wentered, the Hidden Grotto one is easy to get.

    Exp. Millionare is pure evil. I almost did it, but the moment it passed midnight, I was about 12 Audino away from getting enough Exp. Rawr.

    Me too, and what's worse is that if I want to go to some place where people actually have it, I'd have to wait a month for my request to leave to process.


    I keep forgetting about the Royal Unova, so I still don't have that thing.

    Now at about 140.

    Really need to step up the Dream World if I want to make it.

    It just so hurts me that I actually DID try to go for the Exp. Millionaire medal. Like Cyberra did, I used a Bagon that had just hatched. Then I really started to level-grind it. I put a Lucky Egg on it and then battled all the Trainers in Big Stadium and Small Court and after that I had gotten a Shelgon at Lv. 45. I hadn't even got the medal after that, so realising that I could fight N again, I hotfooted it to N's Castle, saved just before approaching N, and used a Pass Power (Exp. Point Power +1). Fought N - Shelgon had only gotten as far as Lv. 49. It was just 100 Exp. away from evolving into Salamence. Unfortunately, when I was leaving N's Castle, the Pass Power wore off, and I couldn't use an Escape Rope because I was still in the castle. I was going to fight some Audino on Route 1 but the level gap had narrowed to just 10 levels so I wouldn't get much Exp., not even enough for a level-up. Instead, I went to Driftveil and used the Pass Power again before fighting my rival. My Shelgon evolved but had only gotten another 4 levels despite the Pass Power, which wore off shortly afterwards, before I could even kill an Audino.

    There are other hard-to-find medals, but I've already got the Lucky Color medal for a shiny Pokemon, but in Black 2, I thought I wouldn't get it, because I thought I'd run out of Poke Balls. There it was, in the Relic Passage - a shiny Drilbur. It just so happened that I had a Quick Ball left, and it was my only one, so I threw it. It caught the Pokemon and I realised afterward I'd gotten the medal. It's now evolved into an Excadrill. For White 2, that was so easy - getting shiny Dialga, Palkia and Giratina in the events were all it took to get the medal.

    Honestly, I'm too lazy to really bother intentionally getting medals, however, I've still ended up with nearly sixty.

    I think I have something like 70ish on my Black 2. I'll see how much of the Medal Rally I can do on my White 2.

    Go through the sewers. There's an alley up one of two stairwells you can find in the sewers. Beat the three trainers in the alley and you'll get the medal.

    EDIT: Oh, and it has to be summer or spring too i think.

    You need to use Surf in Castelia Sewers. Eventually, you'll find a path on the far left side of the series, and if you follow that up and right, you'll find an exit to a secluded part of Castelia City where there are three trainers. Beat all three of them, and then you'll get the Castelia Boss medal.

    I love how when you beat the trainers in the Alley in Castelia City, they say "You're really tough. You deserve a medal!". And then when you go back to the Pokemon Center, Mr. Medal gives you the Castelia Boss medal. BTW, I have 30.

    I think maybe via the Sewers in certain seasons?

    I imagine some of those missions had Japan more in mind which would be more likely to have a situation of 30+ people doing a Funfest mission at the same time.

    It would probably be possible only during official Pokémon conventions. Or if you actually live in a Pokémon community. That would be awesome.


    Anyone saying Red is a good trainer please explain to me how he can have a Jolteon get OHKO'ed by a Thunderbolt. From a Rhyhorn.

    Or fan-conventions, I suppose, if you know how to organize one (like anime or sci-fi conventions).

    I just got the medal for getting 50 medals last night. I think I'll use the Castelia Boss medal as my favorite for now.
    Oh, look! I wrote a fanfic! Weak (One-Shot. Rated G). Can Iris convince Bianca that she can't just avoid her problems?

    And another one: Mischief (One-Shot. Rated G). A little fun for October.

    I actually really like the medals system! It gives you a small sense of accomplishment when you earn one. Plus, it also gives you another set of things to collect! As if 649 pokemon weren't enough, lol.
    I think I have around 40 in White 2.

    I currently have 60-65... some achievements of which they ask are a little ridiculous and tedious, but I must complete them all for the sake of OCD.

    I feel the same thing. It's making it hard to SR for shiny Cresselia, because I'll be hit with the urge to get another medal. My most recent one was the type expert one. I'm now at 158, and I hope to at least get close to collecting all of them. There's no way I'm getting that Battle Subway one anytime soon, though...

    I have only one medal... okay technically I've got a bunch that I haven't picked up yet (over 50 I know). I've got this weird desire to not pick up any until I earnas near to all of them as I can... Though whenever I go to check on what I've earned (by saving before collecting them and then not after) it's incredibly annoying to be told each one, instead of just being told how many I earned and being given them all at once.

    Right now I'm not too far in the game, but I have 31 medals and my current favorite is the Magikarp award "To praise the guts of Trainers who kept using Splash no matter what."

    I currently have 25 Medals (something a boy in Castelia City pointed out earlier). Personally though, I find the Medals to be redundant. There's no real point to them other than them being markers of your achievements, but since you're playing the games, you should already know what you've done. Anyway, I'm not stressing out over them.
