    Remember that it's not just us, but the people that gets passed by must also has his/her C-Gear turned on.

    But if we need to pass by 1000 different people....yeah, impossible outside Japan.
    And I think even the Japanese themselves would still have problem passing by 1000 different people. Not everyone has a Pokemon game AND turn on their C-Gear, after all.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    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 ^_^

    It doesn't have to be different people, you can pass by the same person 1000 times.

    That would be really tedious though with one person... There are 4 of us at uni who play, and I am still only at 24 passes...

    Yeah, it would take hours and hours by yourself to get it done.

    I really like the medal system, it's just like earning achievements on my Steam. My only gripe is that some of the medals require you to communicate wirelessly and I have no one to play with that way...

    You can do that 1000 passerby one easily if you have 2 DS but it's tedious. First you pass by normally. Then Save and reset. Then repeat.

    You might have to resort to finding someone at a convention or your local Pokemon club, if your city has one.
    That's what I'd do, but thankfully I have people other than me who play Pokemon (who I know).

    I have only 45 medals, but I haven't been really trying to get them since most of them are stupid. Like the pokemon musical, I can't stand the pokemon musical and the pokewood thing is also just as annoying too, since you have to do all the movies basically two times over or more if you do it wrong :/ Interesting idea, but a little poorly planned out.

    I just got my "One and Only" Medal. I used Reshiram to obtain it. He tanked the E4 w/ no problem. It is now my favorite Medal I have so far. I've been working on the mono-team E4 Medals and building those teams has been fun.

    I love the Champion Medal. It felt really good beating the Champions. Especially Red

    I'll have to agree. I have no motivation to get the musical medals. It's almost as awful as the beauty contests in R/S/E.
    If I do decide to get those medals, they will be last in line.

    I have all the musical medals besides the 10fans one. They were quite easy in the end when I got the hang of it. The time spent getting those medals was a lot less than leveling 1 pokemon to 100 (with boosted exp) to get the same-type E4 clear medal which usually takes me 2days per pokemon >.>

    Got the wailord watcher medal the other day the 2nd time I ever went in to the tunnel. I went in thinking "oh, I might just leave my ds on for a bit and hope it swims over, and as I was walking along it from the south it swam over the the middle. I just kept walking to Hamilau town and picked up the medal :P
    I am also keen to beat the elite 4 so I can start making some good mono-type teams to get those medals. Although I suppose it would only require a tram of say 3 to beat them if you had the team planned well...

    I finally got to 50 medals. I wasn't trying very hard, though. Since I joined in the Magnemite coil, I got a few because of it, including the Pokerus one

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but they don't.
    I believe the medal encourages you to trade interactively with another DS system.

    Every time I earn a medal, I expect the "Achievement Unlocked" sound from the Xbox 360 to play.

    Only those were actually fun unlike musicals! And more involved too (grow berries, get a decent moveset/strategy for it and play the turns right, as opposed to... throw clothes on and watch).

    GTS trades count for that medal at least; doesn't have to be local wifi trades.

    The Musicals being so....bland is weird because there is like a system to it
    certain props are better than others, there's a lot of timing to getting the spotlight, stealing the spotlight can extend your own and so on

    But they make it not matter. Losing a musical has no consequence other than slightly fewer fans showing up and less chance of getting a prop.
    You only have at most 2 ways to influence spotlights
    The spotlights are the only interactivity!

    At least it's mindless to just let it go through i guess

    The problem with musicals is that they don't have the universal appeal that other sidequests do. PWT, the Battle Subway, and Black Skyscraper/White Treehollow still involve battling, so most people would still want that. Pokestar Studios' theme is movies, which is something that everyone can enjoy. But musicals don't really appeal to that many people, aside from theater buffs, not many people are really into that sort of thing. But we're getting off topic.

    Anyway, anyone else think that it's kind of a waste to give you 10 medals for doing the same thing a different number of times?

    Some of those are a waste, like the Dowsing Machine Wizard. 150 items with the Dowsing Machine is a bit excessive, I think. And then a medal for nicknaming 10 pokemon, which takes no more than five minutes, and you get a medal for it? Most of the medals are great incentive to try something, like then monotype runs through the Elite 4, but some are just a waste.

    No, I'm talking about the ones that you get for doing something 10 times, then again for 20 times, then 50, etc. Why can't they just give you 1 for doing them a certain amount of times? Achievements are meant to be given out for things that are actually a challenge to do, not given out occasionally every step of the way. There's so much more potential for Medals if they reward them for more challenging accomplishments, the monotype Elite 4 medals are a great example of that.

    Oh, well in that case, the Dowsing Machine medals are still following that pattern, giving you medal at 1, 10, 50, and 150 items. The nicknaming medal only comes once, but it still seems a bit unnecessary to give a medal for that, though more worthwhile than looking in a trash can. I do understand what you're getting at. I do feel a greater sense of reward with getting medals for the pokedex completion, and Type Expert Tournaments than for saving the game 10 times, 20 times, and so on.
