    I have 31 medals thus far. While it's kinda annoying to do some feats, it's pretty fun, though most of the time I complete a feat without realizing it, so I find Mr. Medal pretty creepy. Heck, everyone in the Medal Office (or whatever it's called, too lazy to look up the actual name) is pretty creepy. It's as if they really rely on you collecting all the medals out there as if the world would be destroyed if you didn't. Or at least their company. It's so odd. Kinda reminds me of the creepy ubiquitous reports they have about you, even before you start your journey.

    I also have a feeling I'm never going to finish collecting all the medals since some of it deals with wireless, and I don't exactly know how to work it out, if I have wireless to begin with.

    I'm up to 195 medals, so close to 200 now. I really want to see what the new color the medal box will be. Just need to do five of the E4 challenges and I'll be there.
    I'm so excited.

    105 at the moment, not trying to get more, if it happens, that's okay. I'm busy with others in-game duties.
    My favorite one is the "Romantic Movie Star" because i loved doing the "Love and Battles" series.

    I really really like the idea of having the medals for beating the elite four with certain types. It is super fun! And a real challenge.

    Then hold yourself back and don't use Kyurem! Use the medals as inspiration to make your own challenges.

    Personally, I wonder how well I can do against the Elite 4 with a team consisting of only a Cubchoo. Then I'll get the Solo medal as well.

    I hit 201 like 4 days ago. thats all I wanted. Theres like 50 more or something. But im not gonna go for them until I finish lvling up all the main pokemon I want for X/Y.

    My Favorite is "National Catcher" now. Seeing how its my first time completing the Dex without Cheats.

    As for the "One and Only" I just used my Samurott. It was tough, almost died a couple times but I still made it. Just needed to get past Catilin

    I enjoy the Medal system, it's a good idea to add achievements to pokemon. If the bring back the medal system in X and Y, they need to add some better achievements. IMO

    My favorite that I received unintentionally was for checking trash cans. For some reason I played half the game checking every trash can without using the Dowsing Machine so I would be surprised when I actually found something.

    I thought the Medal System was very unique, and I loved collecting medals in B2/W2. I think I have just under 50, but that's because I haven't touched my file in a while (hue, that rhymed). I'm not sure which one is my favorite, so I'll just say I liked them all equally.

    I also loved the trash can medal. In about every pokemon game I would check the trash cans and come up empty. It's nice to receive a reward for digging through the trash. ��

    I enjoy the medal system very much, but I don't plan to go out of my way and collect all the medals.
    So far my favorite medal is the pokerus discoverer medal. I'm especially proud of that one, because I got it the first day I started playing my white 2 game!

    Apparently you only need to answer the questions to get the Heavy Machine Specialist (I think it's called) medal for answering the questions asked by the guy at the Icirrus City entrance to Twist Mountain. I know I got at least two wrong, and I still got the medal.

    Currently working on the type-catcher medals. I've got Poison-type Catcher, Ghost-type Catcher, Grass-type Catcher, Ice-type Catcher, Bug-type Catcher, and Steel-type Catcher. Will need Reshiram for the Dragon and Fire type catcher medals, and Thundurus for the Electric-type medal. Working on Dark-type, Normal-type, and Psychic-type right now. Will get Water-type after I revive Tirtouga in White 2 and transfer it over.

    The medal system is cool, but I think that it should at least give you some sort of benefit or item. After collecting around 100 medals, you go to have the ceremony where you think something awesome is going to happen, when in reality, it's just like, "Congratulations! Keep collecting more!"

    It's a fun addition, it just doesn't really have an application or purpose.

    True, but you could say that about a lot of things within the games. B2W2 was the first game that gave you something of use for completing the Unova and National Dex. A lot of the game is optional, and I think they want to keep that theme.

    Plus, what could they give after you got 100 or 150. If you think about what doing that would require, you would have done pretty much a lot of the games and items probably wouldn't be very useful. And outside of items, what is there that isn't purely symbolic?

    I really like the medal system and I especially like how there are a few that can't be easily obtained. It makes it feel more like an achievement when you get them. I hope they bring medals forward to X and Y.

    Neither do achievements in console games, but this doesn't mean they're not fun to collect.

    I agree there. I like the medals because some of them require real skill to get. Others, it's pure dumb luck.

    When it comes to console game achievements I get more excited than I probably should whenever I get a new one, because some of them are so bloody hard to get (I had to chase the Supreme Sacrifice and Kill Bill achievements through L4D AND L4D2) while others I still can't figure out how I got (only way I can explain the Jump Shot achievement is pure dumb luck, since my aim SUCKS). I don't get quite as excited about the medals in Black/White 2, but I still feel accomplished when I get a new one.

    I've never been one to go after achievements, but attempting to get some of the medals in White 2 was somewhat fun actually.

    Well it took forever, but I have 53 medals currently, so I got upgraded to Rookie now. It used to be fun, but it's gotten fairly annoying to collect medals now, if only because I still haven't beaten the Elite Four yet. Which I'm sure the moment I do, the medal collection will go up a little bit before slowing down due to the fact I may never do those wireless achievements or whatever.

    Only 202 more to go... or so I'll try to, anyway.

    I don't typically do any of the wireless stuff and I was able to get up to 113 medals, plus I still have the Elite Four challenges to accomplish which will net me a cool 18 I think. I don't really hunt for medals now, just let them occasionally show up like a surprise. I do want to level up to the next level though eventually before X and Y.

    At the moment, I think I've got 224 medals. Right now, I'd say my favorite medal collected is Exam Genius (complete 50 team tests). Well, I really should say 'most proud of' medal, because doing the tests were boring (yes, I know I could just run from each battle but I didn't want to do that). I even managed to get an expert rank once (6003 points), so that was cool. I'm grinding most of the rest right now- I think I'll be able to get every one eventually, except the ones for 10 and 100 funfest people and 100 and 1000 funfest points, simply because I'll never physically get near enough people for that. Kind of annoying since I particularly enjoy the funfest missions.

    In the end, my favorite medal will probably be the 1000 victories in the Tower/Treehollow or the national dex finisher

    This took a while with allot of dedication, but I finally got all the type challenge medals with my favorites based on their type. Since its ingame, only a few of them were EV trained as the rest were done by casual level grinding XD
    Here is my team of Electric,Dark,Bug,Water,Dragon,Ice,Ground,Rock,Grass,Normal,Poison,Ghost,Fire,Steel,Psychic,Flying,Fighting, and my one and only. This is currently my favorite pokemon game at this point. I actually get rewarded by winning with dream teams like these. It makes me feel accomplished :') Also, I just counted that I only need 55 more wins for medal of "1000 wins" After this medal I'll finally get the "Battle Guru" one since its my last Battle medal.

    I enjoy the Funfest too. I wish I had enough people to help me get all the medals for them though. If X/Y keeps these, I hope there is an option to play these with people online.
