    I have 126 medals, and I got the last one today, by getting 100 BPs.

    I'm training a Volcarona to get the Fire and Bug-type medal, also the One and Only medal, will I be able to accomplish that?

    It is Lv. 78 (getting it to 85 at least), with Quiver Dance, Bug Buzz, Flamethrower and Psychic. It has HP Fighting.

    I like the system, but some of the more obscure achievements like Wailord Watcher or any of the Musical Medals have flown by me due to them being absolute wastes of time in my opinion. As far as how many I have, I have about 116. The latest medal I received was "National Catcher," I believe, although I'm not quite as fond of that milestone as I am of "EXP. Millionaire," which proves my capabilities as a grind enthusiast more so than the actual ultimate accomplishment.

    Especially since this is like, what, the second time I've completed the 5th Gen Dex this year? So what if I can be a master? It was quite frankly easier this time, in my opinion. It's the speed that counts.

    Creating sentience is simple. Accepting it, however, is harder than it looks.

    212 buddies. That'll be hard to beat. Currently working on battle institute, battle subway, Anville town and Funfest medals.

    I find the the guy who gives you medals a little strange. But it's fun to recive little presents often.

    My favorite medal is Magikarp Award. I couldn't stop laughing when I received it.

    "A medal to praise the guts of Trainers who kept using Spash no matter what. "

    I have 88 medals now and I'm more focused in the PWT and Join Avenue.

    Maybe I'll try a league challenge with Monotypes.

    exactly what I did using a Gallade

    The medals are definetley a great addition to the game. They make it much longer and slightly more challenging. So far I'm up to 43 medals, once I've made a dent in the Pokemon World Tournament I'll start collecting them properly.

    The only medal that caused me trouble (so far) was the "One and Only". I eventually managed to accomplish this though with a Level 78 Lucario (it didn't have any items or wasn't altered by Natures/EVs/IVs) on my first run through i.e. Pre National Dex.
    -Aura Sphere to defeat Grimsley
    -Psychic to defeat Marshall
    -Dark Pulse to defeat Shauntal and Caitlin
    -Dragon Pulse to defeat Iris.

    I suppose it depends on whether you wish to challenge yourself or not. I tried it on Black 2 before with a Level 100 EV trained Charizard, Post National Dex and it was a little bit of a struggle. (I still managed to do it though)

    I think this would work much better as Lucario is weak to fighting and Marshal's Sawk has Sturdy and Close Combat meaning youll get wiped out pretty easy. Got the first 2 link battle medals by battling in the Tournament got about 180 medals now

    ....or you can try looking for one in the Dream World.

    Spinda is in the Rugged Mountain.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    The Rail enthusiast is a pain. I got all train descriptions except one which he never mentions at all. Even after 2 weeks of daily train talk, he still never mentions the final train I need for that dang medal.

    You can't even soft-reset new trains too

    I think the future train only appears on specific dates, because I've had every single other train appear multiple times now.

    At least it knows Superpower. And you can get BW1 exclusives on BW2, provided you get them on the demo first :p

    Serebii really needs to update this page because I (and many other people) have been able to trade with as few as 30 calls

    That's probably a better option. Lucario was the first that came to my mind and as you said it did indeed have a few problems with Sawk and Sturdy/Close Combat/Full Restore

    The Medal System is the only disappointing aspect of the first two gyms journey. It's corny, pointless, boring, and totally unneeded. Nintendo, if you're reading this, and are thinking about gen 6, cross the medal system off your list of gen 6 ideas.

    I don't understand why someone would complain about the medal system when you're not even required to use it...
