Medals ... did we really need an achievement system for this series?

Does it matter that much? There isn't some bald muscular black guy whipping you as you play, all like "GET THE ACHIEVEMENTS! GET THE ACHIEVEMENTS YOU MAGGOT!"


Not yet. But you and I both know that there will be elitists on this board who will use them just like they're used in any, and more accurately, every, other game with online interaction, as a means to spout just how much better they are than others. I mean, look at the competitive community here and tell me that another means to stroke their egos (because, let's face it, they've already stroked something else) is going to be a good thing.

Its good, a little checklist for stuff to do wont hurt.


Considering what I know about the Pokemon series and from what I've seen of the screenshots of it, it's probably going to outright stop gameplay for upwards of 30 seconds, play a jingle, just to tell me I got a medal.

That would annoy the bloody hell out of me.

And having looked at the list of them ... there had better be a god damned way to turn that off.

How do you respond to somebody who clearly has no concept of reading comprehension?

In that case, you don't have to worry about it. The medals/achievement doesn't just "pop" when you get it. You have to go to the medal guy and talk to him to get your medals.

So after you get the medal case and you really don't care to see what achievements you've "earned", then don't go to the medal dude.

That's a relief.

Is getting the case mandatory, or can I skip that as well?

By patting them on the back and saying..

"kid...it's okay, you'll get them someday, but at least you're not whining like CryingStar"

Simply put, you don't. They couldn't understand you if you did.
