    Default Medals in X and Y?

    So, who here liked the medals in B2W2? I sure did! They gave me more of a reason to accomplish a lot of things because I've always loved to collect little things and rewards like these in video games. Because of this, I'd love to see a medal box in X and Y as well!

    There should be medals for certain achievements that we didn't get in B2W2 though. Like seeing/capturing a certain number of Pokemon in the Pokedex, for example. I'm surprised we didn't get medals for that, though there are medals for catching all Pokemon of a certain type in the Unova dex. I also like the idea of medals for catching all Pokemon from a certain region. Like a medal for all Kanto Pokemon, a medal for all Johto Pokemon, etc.

    And just like each new generation adds new Pokemon, gen 6 should add more medals! There are 255 total right now, if I recall? Then adding 100-150 more at the least should do fine. ^^

    Im not crazy about the whole medals thing. It was an ok feature for people that liked to collect all the medals and made for an interesting kind of sidequest to get them all, but I dunno if they will be included in X nad Y, though it might be interesting to see what new medals they add and the criteria for getting them.

    But medals are awesome! You were rewarded like for almost every kind of thing you could do in the game, from walking a certain number of steps to beating the league with just one Pokemon! It made me feel more accomplished. x3

    Though, it'll be ages before I can attempt any of those Pokemon league medals. lol

    I didn't like the medals but I agree they should continue to be in the games. It just adds more depth to the games and adds another thing to do. Though I wish they didn't introduce the concept in the first place.

    EDIT: MY favorite Medal was the one about Magikarp Award.

    ...Huh, I really thought medals would've been popular. I mean, I've seen a lot of Pokemon players say that we need to be better rewarded for certain things, and the medals ARE rewards. And you can show off your favorite medal to other players online! I'd like to be able to show a few more than just one though. Five would be enough.

    Perhaps medals are not an interesting enough reward for some people. Atleast not for showing off.

    Personally i usually dont bother with achievements ingame unless its something like an mmo where i can get a title or something related to customization. Showy stuff lol.

    Yeah they're kinda neat, so why not. It's one of those things that if they include it then that's cool and if they don't, then it won't bother me at all really. It serves as an achievement feature and a lot of games incorporate that kind of thing and lots of people just like accomplishing stuff so yeah, why not.

    Yeah, but medals are proof that you've accomplished a lot of neat stuff! I'd certainly want to show off a reward for, say, beating the Champions Tournament in the PWT.

    At first I wasn't very keen on the idea of medals in BW2. But they quickly grew on me, and I like to collect them. They've been really fun, and they've been decent rewards for challenging accomplishments. Good for proof.

    But would I like them to return in another game? Probably not. While they were fun and interesting, I can't really see myself wanting to do it all over again, especially after how some of them were kind of tedious to earn. And besides, the medals seemed like a little element thing that probably wouldn't have much else use in another game, like how HGSS introduced following Pokemon but did not return in Gen 5.

    But Pokemon following you wasn't something you had to actually do things for to accomplish. Medals are rewards that prove you worked for something and you can collect a lot of them. The only thing walking Pokemon is good for is building friendship and that's it. Medals are accomplishments and things to show off and are meant to push you to accomplish more stuff. I find them to have a much better chance of returning any day.

    I have a feeling they will have something similar to medals again, but in a different incarnation. That's Game Freak seems to do in these games, they never do the same thing every time, though with popular things they tend to reuse them in a different way, or make something different but similar. For instance, contests became a different kind of contest, which became the pokeathelon, which became pokemon musicals.

    If the medals looked different (instead all being gold circles), like how Xbox 360 achievements each looked different, and if they'd reduce the required number for streetpass medals, then I'd really like them. Right now, though, I find them meh/okay

    Yes they were, but they were still but a little element of sorts to BW2. I don't really expect to see them return, or at least not in the same way, like how NoirGrimoir said.
