Medals are newly introduced to the games. You gain them by accomplishing various tasks throughout the game. You can get them from doing anything like catching Pokemon to doing various tasks. There's over 200 different medals in 5 different categories. Alder gives you the medal box after you defeat two trainers in his house on route 20.

Serebii has more information on their page, here!

Discuss this new feature. Are you going to complete the medal task and become the elite medalist?

So, from what I understand, this is basically the Pokémon equivalent of an Achievements system? I wonder what some of them are...

Going for all 200+ may be as daunting a task as the Living Dex challenge.

I just got the medal case, but I don't think I've gotten any yet.

I like the thought of playing for the medals but how well executed are the challenges, those who play JAP?

I'm glad ideas such as this have been inserted in the game, it adds a lot of replay value unlike Black/White, you'll definitely be spending more time in this game, not just on medals, theres so much more!

It's pretty interesting feature :D I can't say I'm hunting the medals but if I meet up with the medal guy I'm sure to talk to him to get some medals

I'd rather snag cool Pokemon like Dream World females and the Therian Forme Kamis, but collecting all these is pretty cool and something to do when you're bored, lol.

That's a whole lot of Medals.
By the way we don't get all the medals from the same guy do we?

Oh my goodness, some of these are going to be ridiculous to get. "Beat the Elite Four and Champion using only one pokémon?" And one of them just looks entertaining, "catch the graffiti on the back of a sign"? interesting.

I can't wait to see how many of these I never get, due to lack of Pokémon-playing friends IRL.

This seems like overkill to me... 200+ medals to collect (though some seem easy-"Ace Pilot:Use Fly to fly across the Unova Region")... it does seem like they want us to play the game for a long time coming. Maybe to hold us over till their next game release? Though knowing some hardcore fans will get this done in about... let's say a minimum of a month? Ugh, for me i'll try for a hundred and whatever medal i'll randomly stumble upon. Well once it gets over here in the fall(? I think.)

One Pokemon...well I guess that would be a challenge without a legendary...or a Zoroark (I used one to beat the league in BW...maybe I should try again )

Yeah, there's a selection of 4 I guess... I don't really care about TV in games so maybe it's more... but still it's more than 1.

I like the sound of this. This will will make the game longer.

Maybe this might be one of the first steps for an achievement system in Nintendo's future.

This will make an 100% run hell, but I'm looking to break the Speed Gamers' catch-em-all time (for in-game play time) first. The time to beat is 335 hours and 52 minutes, and I am up for the challenge.

Screeeeeeeeeeew that! Sounds like the sprite system in Harvest Moon DS Cute. Which is awful. Luckily, these medals aren't a requirement unlike the harvest sprites in HM. So yeah, I'm probably not gonna make an effort to get any and I won't even remember to go get them. So...lol.

What's really odd is that there's a medal for getting every other medal. Sounds like they just wanted to put one in randomly to make it a power of two minus one. Crash prevention, maybe?

That's actually a traditional award that appears in all videogames that give these kinda awards. There has always been a Trophy/Award for collecting all other Trophies/Awards.

So I'm totes gonna like, try to get almost all of them. This system is so much fun. I'm an achievement lover. Like, I try to do so in every game, but now that Pokemon has it, I'm totally stoked for this. Plus I can put them on the Trainer Card! Yay!

Yes...it seems like we'll have plenty of fun making RHs

Well in all honesty I never liked achievment systems so I don't think this will be any different (unless it's like a Force Gem kind of thing but I doubt they have the effort to add that much into BW2.
