Huge medal fan by Bummerdude Huge medal fan by Bummerdude
I've duplicated so much lineart in this strip. I feel dirty.

All things considered, introducing achievements to Pokémon made for a nice novelty in B2W2. Some are hard to get, some are completed automatically, and some leaves you questioning your past life choices. Family fun for all ages and below.

:iconarturistic: also made a strip regarding Mr Medal's existence, but other than that, this guy has gotten surprisingly little attention. Had to complete a new medal just so I could get his sprite as a drawing reference.

Medals are nice.  A little something to make you happy.  Except the Hint Medal.  Those suck.

Nice one!

I hope the Medal System is a reoccurring feature in later Pokémon games. Though Game Freak should make certain medal requirements easier. (I think the "Scored 1000" medal was made as a cruel joke on Game Freak's part.) Nonetheless, I currently have over 240 medals. :D

Including the medals was an interesting move. I never did understand the craze of receiving medals in games in general as they technically don't do anything (for the most part). It's as if the company noticed how they're not doing it so they incorporated it in the game just because. I dunno. It's nothing bad and I don't dislike it, but I'm not amazed by it either. Haha.

Enough about that though, the expressions in this are great. That last panel in particular is so wonderfully done.

Badges are the same as achievements. They do nothing, but they create the desire to collect them nonetheless as they make the gamers feel accomplished or successful. It's used often, and it works.

And thanks. C:

I just love the idea of the "Trash Master" medal.

Guess I'm not the only person who got paranoid thanks to the S.S. Anne and Old Chateau. :P

While I do like the idea of getting medals, some of them are ridiculous...I mean, looking through trash cans or seeing grafetti is just weird. I was lucky enough to get the ones for Pokerus and the shiny Pokemon though :D

Not saying the game isn't worth it. Medals are only one sidetrack, while I highly enjoyed the main events.

The medal case has a camera. Mr. Medal has been spying on everything we're doing. Using the medals as a front for his real plan, creating a reality show of a trainer on a Pokemon Journey.

Can you think of anything better? ;)

It's additional game content. You like it or you don't, but it doesn't seem to come with any staggering benefits except bragging rights.

this is why I think they should just bring back RIBBONS. they're an optional item that transcends time and you don't have a creep giving them to you. the medals are just pointless by comparison...

"I don't want achievements! Just give my my damn ribbons, bitch!" my poor Castform has gained as many ribbons as I coulg get in gens III and IV and then suddenly the concept vanished. why? THEY are real achievements.

But yeah, some medals are very tough to get. I'm currently just filling up my pokedex and trying to beat elite four with each of the types. (which is pretty easy, because Arceus can be taken along every time :D)

ah i remember feeling surprise and some embarrassment at the Trash Master medal. Wont ever say it to him but it is somewhat of a delight receiving a medal for walking across all the famous bridges. Whereas in the real existing life city that i live in I have only walk three of the what seven? ahh.
but yes pokemon. medals. more things to collect? well gotta catch em all, so it goes.
