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

Pokémon Picross

Main article: Pokémon Picross → Medals

Medals in Pokémon Picross are rewards for completing specific requirements in-game.

Pokémon GO

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.

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.

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