Earning a bronze medal for registering five unique Pokémon to the Pokédex

Medals are in-game achievements Trainers earn for reaching certain gameplay milestones. A Trainer’s medals are displayed on their profile page. When a Trainer earns a medal, an animated pop-up displays in the Map View, similar to the one when a Trainer levels up.

Each medal has four tiers: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. Some medals award Trainers with extra bonuses when they are earned, such as an increased chance of successfully catching certain Pokémon types or unlocking wardrobe pieces for purchase.

List of medals

A Trainer’s medals are split into two sections: general milestones and catching specific Pokémon types. Medals are first sorted in order of tier. Medals at the same tier are then usually sorted by the order in which the related mechanic was added to the game.

General medals

The first section displays medals for general tasks and milestones. These include catching Pokémon, battling in Gyms, challenging other Trainers or Team GO Rocket, and completing each regional Pokédex.

Most of these medals are initially hidden until the player begins progressing them towards the bronze tier. The following medals will always appear even if the player has made no progress on them: Jogger, Collector, Scientist, Breeder, Backpacker, Battle Girl, Ace Trainer and Best Buddy.

Name Requirement None Bronze Silver Gold Platinum
Jogger Kilometers walked 10 100 1,000 10,000
Kanto Kanto Pokédex entries registered 5 50 100 151
Collector Pokémon caught 30 500 2,000 50,000
Scientist Pokémon evolved 3 20 200
