Hi everyone, I'm here to announce that PokéCommunity finally has a new badge system! If you've been hanging out on our Discord recently your forum PM box might just have been graced with the sudden appearance of a random pair of sunglasses. Well, this is no random erik destler-ism, but actually one of our new set of badges! Badges are handed out to members for participation in various sections and events.
But, you ask, isn't that emblems? There's a big difference - badges that you've received will appear on your posts and can be customized to fit into your flair! Badges also come in four different tiers - bronze for members who meet the requirements, silver for those who excel, gold for members who go above and beyond, and the ancient and obscure "off-colour" badges whose conditions for acquiring are shrouded in mystery.
The following is a list of badges and conditions for obtaining them. This list will be updated as more badges are created. Conditions for granting are subject to change and at the discretion of the moderators of the relevant section(s).

You can see a list of badges you've obtained in the "Badges" tab of your profile.
So, you've obtained your first badge! Now how do you display it on your posts? You can choose up to four of your badges to display on your posts - to choose your badges, visit the flair editor. You'll see an interface that looks something like this:
(Note that you will only see this menu if you have at least one badge.)
You can choose your badges there and mess around with the solid, light, and colourless options to find the one that best fits your flair style. If you don't want to display badges on your posts at all, simply deselect all of them. They'll still appear on your profile!
That's about it! Enjoy your new badges everyone~ if you have any feedback on this feature, the Developers or Admins would love to hear it! Keep an eye on this thread as we'll be updating it with new badges as we go along.
