    I would like to congratulate myself and brag a little about achieving the Supreme Challenger medal! whoopwhoop!
    Has taken me a some 200hrs to do it. I have a total of 261hrs played. I can't wait to sync with DreamWorld and see my new Favourite medal.

    The hardest parts were
    - choosing pokemon with great potential moves. Like evolving to a Stoutland and using heart scales to 'relearn' Ice/thunder/fire fang
    - breeding for the right nature
    - leveling to 100
    - Leveling 2-3 pokemon to 100

    The best help was using Serebii's B/W pokedex to figure out and choose the best/strongest pokemon. I stayed away from using TMs because I like keeping them forever but I did use the Heat Scale learner a lot at the PWT.
    An event lev100 Arceus started to help out towards the end instead of leveling a 3rd pokemon to 100. I suggest having more than one fitness gym in join avenue. At lev10 you can jump a pokemons level by 10.

    It was somewhat easy. Just very time consuming. In total I leveled about 20pokemon to 100 then had about 5 between 85-99.

    Congrats on the sweet medal!! I was the same way with TMs in previous generations, but TMs are reusable this gen. They don't go away after you use them so you don't have to worry about that anymore. One of the best improvements that came with BW/BW2 in my opinion.

    You ARE keeping them forever. They're reusable just like HMs ever since B/W. That's why you can buy the TMs only once.

    To get the type based elite four medals, i've just been using as many pokemon as possible with the same dual-type. i got one and only using white kyurem, and then zapdos and thundurus got me electric and flying medals. i'm gonna use starmie and slowbro for water and psychic next. maybe the fire/fighting starters after that. Genesect/Scizor/Durant for steel and bug.

    I got more medals. I got the Magikarp Award because of my DW Wailmer. I bred 10 eggs, got a friend registered on my pal pad, caught all bug types, and visited Unity Tower getting me my Around Unova medal. Now I got 94 medals

    I like the medals system. But yeah, that pass 1000 people one is a bit over the top and I'm going to choose to it. xD Last time I checked I had 57 medals, I think.

    Quite honestly, i'm a medal addict, as you can see in my signature.
    Btw the signature isn't up to date, i just don't won't to change it before i'll get 200 medal, which should be very soon

    I always love the concept of achievement/trophies, making that concept into pokémon is the best thing that could ever append for this serie.

    Currently at 191 medal, working on E4 medals to get to 200

    Me too. I was quite disappointed with B1/W1 (well not really) when I caught all the Unova pokemon and deemed the game finished at 138hrs. I'm nearing 300hrs and I'm still planning to play at least another 300.
    I love games that almost never end.

    Most recently obtained the Dark and Dragon type master medals, as well as the One and Only medal.

    The only Pokemon that posed any problems for my level 100 Hydreigon was Iris's Haxorus, thanks to the Focus Sash it has equipped.

    I like the Medal System. I have somewhere around 70. Even though you don't get any item-related prizes, ( Which I have no problem with ) I still find it a fun addition. Plus, you get an extra challenge out of it, even though I'm certain that I will never get them all. I'm not sure, but there's probably one for completing the National Pokedex, which I've never done (Mew, Deoxys, Jirachi), though I think that I COULD end up with something in the 200s...? Plus, I know there's one for defeating the Elite Four and Champion with only one type, and I can see some types doing that that, but... I'm not good with Bug types, although I do like the Venipede line. Note: I'm not saying there aren't good, even great, bug types, I've just never taken the time to try raising them besides my Scolipede, and a Beedrill in LeafGreen. But, I'm getting off topic. Overall, I think that the Medal System is a great addition and would like to see it again.

    Yes, there is one, but you don't need to have mew, celebi, jirachi, deoxys, arceus, darkrai, shaymin, meloetta, keldeo, genesect, victini.

    One medal for each type and one for defeating the elite four with only one pokemon

    Oh. Good, because I don't have any of those but Genesect.

    I'm almost to 100 medals. I'm currently finishing my Unova dex so I should get there after that. I need to go back and get one of the medals from the first half of Black Tower I missed

    I have about 85 medals on my White 2 version. I need to transfer all my Pokes over so I can do the monotype E4 challenges and other stuff.

    I have like around 70 medals atm. Some probably take hard to get like the beat the champ only with normal type PKMN... does it mean I can Just use ONE normal type? like Meowth vs all Iris's PKMN? Or does it mean 6 normal types? nya~

    As in the ____-Type Champ medals? You can use up to six Pokemon and as long as they are all Normal-types or part Normal-types (eg Fearow) they you'll get the medal.

    So a team of Persian/Fearow/Bibarel/Girafarig/Sawsbuck/Clefairy will get you the Normal-type Champ medal.

    Using one Pokemon works, too.

    It's probably faster in the long run to win using dual type Pokemon who are capable of handling the Elite 4 on their own so you can get two type medals in one go along with the One and Only medal.

    I kind of like the medals. They're kind of like achievements & trophies in other systems. At the moment, I've got just under 100, like 97-98 or so. I'd probably have more, but there's still a lot of them hidden. I which they'd reveal them all after beating the E4.

    General question for anyone- if you fight and beat the E4 with, whatever, let's say a level 100 Volcarona and nothing else, will you get both the medals for using only fire pokemon and for using only bug pokemon?

    I got 64 medals so far. I haven't really been trying to get medals just playing the game at my own pace. I still got to beat the Elite Four for the first time in BW2.
