    Are you one of those people that just aren't convinced the game is over when the credits roll? Do you partake in self-inflicted challenges? Do you do ridiculous things in-game just to see an 'Achievement Unlocked!' message pop up? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the medal rally is for you!

    This thread is to exchange information and tips on how to get these tokens, such as where certain items are and what Pokemon to use or even what buttons to mash or something. However, I know people won't want to slog through an icky gross Smogon topic on the matter and will appreciate a nice ordered tip list to browse through on their way to be a Medal Master. This is where you come in! All you need to do is grab a medal off this list and write a sentence or two on how to easily obtain it. Of course, if your description is lacking grammatically or in substance, I won't bother with it. Here's a sample of what I'm looking for:

    First Step (open)
    You get this medal after you defeat Alder's students in Floccesy Town after the Medal Master hands you the Medal Case. Can't miss this one.


    Hide tags are preferred, but I can easily enter them myself.

    Of course, you can just discuss the Medal Rally... But where's the fun in that? As always, Ctrl+F is your friend.

    When I first heard about them and unlocked a few and looked up some others, I was quite interested but after seeing all of them and some of the ridiculous or otherwise irrelevant things I'd have to do to get them, I'm going to pass on trying to get a completed or near-completed Medal Case. There should be more fun ones like the Magikarp Award and less "crappy" ones like Pass Power +, Pass Power ++, Pass Power +++, Pass Power MAX

    The crappy ones aren't as bad as I thought they'd be. I've been getting several of them without really grinding for them

    Except the C-Gear Passings and the Fun Fests involving people
    Those are a tier below crappy in every way

    I'm still probably going for a solid 200 though (which should have been the trainer star, not 250), since a lot of them like the e4 challenges sound really interesting

    Not even going to attempt getting them all. I don't have the drive or care enough to.

    Good luck to anyone else though!

    Wait one of the stars is medals? Serebii's list for trainer card is...

    Defeat the Elite Four
    Complete National Dex
    Complete all PokéStar Studio Movies
    Defeat the Champions within the Pokémon World Tournament
    Gain Entree levels of 30 for Black or White

    And bulbapedia is the only source that's contradicting this, saying Medals instead of the entree thing. If that's true then I've given up on my first perfect card, because the entree was easier than the stupid medals. Stupid c-gear passing

    The official guidebook lists what Serebii has.

    (It actually differs by saying "Make your Black Level and White Level 30 or higher.")

    Thank God, I was wondering how Heavy Traffic was even possible.

    1000 Passerbys? Seriously ._.

    No-one has posted some medals? Well I'm currently on 41 medals. Having completed my BW2 main story line. I haven't done match pre-elite4, aside from Desend the White Tree Hollow. Which I'm currently residing on Area 7. Anyway! Here's some Medals related to the Hollow, that some of you may want to hear about!


    Show Hide
    20 Victories
    A medal given to slightly strong Trainers who beat 20 Trainers in Unova's Challenge. Basically defeat in White Tree Hollow / Black Skyscraper, 20 Trainers!


    Show Hide
    50 Victories
    A medal given to modestly strong Trainers who beat 50 Trainers in Unova's Challenge. Basically defeat in White Tree Hollow / Black Skyscraper, 50 Trainers!


    Show Hide
    Quick Clear: Hard
    A medal for Trainers who cleared Area 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 within 1,000 steps in Unova's Challenge. Pretty self explainatory. Complete Area 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 in White Hollow/Black Skyscraper in 1,000 steps!

    Is it possible for someone with 2 systems and Black 2 + White 2 to complete these without another person, even if it takes a while and requires a lot of clock changing? I'm concerned about what I've heard about some of the funfest missions being too difficult alone.

    while technically it'd be possible i'm not sure how it'll work out practically

    concentrating on 2 systems at the same time isn't a joke

    Thanks, I'll have to try it when I get there. Also on the Funfest topic: The wording of the Funfest missions' medals' requirements on Serebii and Gamefaqs ("Play an Entralink Funfest Mission with XX people or more") is kind of unclear. Does that mean play in, say, 30 missions, each with another person? Because the other way around is not going to be possible in my suburb.

    I did a Tepig solo run on Black 2 and made it all the way to the League with just this baby, and even put it on YouTube (my channel in signature). I got the "Fire-Type Master" and "One and Only" Challenge medals for making it to the Hall of Fame with just Tepig.

    That's pretty cool. If you had evolved it you could have gotten the Fighting-type medal also.
