A Level 1 Adventure Medal

Medals (Japanese: メダル Medal) are a type of achievement in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Generation V

Main article: List of Medals in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Medals are given by Mr. Medal in the Pokémon Center when talking to him after meeting their requirements, and are stored in the Medal Box. Mr. Medal will only appear when the player has unclaimed Medals they have achieved. There are 255 Medals in all, along with Hint Medals.

Generation VI

Main article: List of Medals in Pokémon X and Y
Main article: List of Medals in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

In Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire, Medals were a part of the Pokémon Global Link rather than in-game items. When the player performed a Game Sync, any achieved Medals were automatically unlocked.

Due to the closure of the Generation VI Pokémon Global Link on November 1, 2016, these Medals can no longer be earned.

In the spin-off games

Reason: Battle Legend Medal Pictures.

In Pokémon GO, there are a number of medals that the player can earn. Each potential medal can be earned at several different ranks. With the exception of medals named after regions and Unown, the medals are all named after Trainer classes. The progress a player appears as a circular progress bar relating to the level they've progressed to with the exact progress within the circle. Players that have earned a gold badge have their grand total appearing on a banner below the badge.

As a result of the Gym update in June 2016, the Ace Trainer badge has been retired from play, as the feature is no longer available.

From October 10, 2016 onward, the type-specific medals provide capture bonuses when attempting to catch Pokémon of that type. Bronze medals provide +1, Silver medals provide +2, Gold medals provide +3. If a Pokémon has two types, the bonus is the average of the medals for each of its types.

Upon the release of the Hoenn badge, the Johto badge was updated to reflect the design of the Johto Pokédex

There are also special medals, that can be obtained during real-life events.
