Medals are achievements you earn when you accomplish a milestone in the game. Each medal corresponds to a certain achievement you’ve accomplished, like reaching a certain amount of distance you’ve walked, number of eggs you’ve hatched, number of Pokémon you’ve caught, and many others.

You can see your medals when you select your Trainer in the lower left of the screen. Medals have three tiers:

  • Bronze,
  • Silver, and
  • Gold.

Some medals unlock Avatar items.
