since this is a Pokémon forum, I think badges fit the setting of PokéCommunity Forums rather than emblems. in Pokémon, you collect badges both in the game and Anime. so I think emblems should be renamed to 'badges' to fit the Pokémon atmosphere...

Thanks for the suggestion. 8) It's a good idea and you're right, it would make more sense.
Back when we launched the emblems on PC we talked a while about what we wanted to call them, and "badges" was one of the options. We decided against it because we felt that the size of the images and their complex nature wasn't accurately conveyed by that name, and we decided to go with emblems instead. I'm pretty sure we're all happy with that decision. But thanks a lot for your thought. :]
