Medals were stupid and pointless.

It's just something fun to do. What, you thought the game was all about battling, and nothing else? No fun activities or challenges?

I hope they would keep them, I love achievements :D BUT only if they scrap the ones that require playing with friends. Makes me hate my social life lol

I liked medals, because I like achievements. As long as they're reasonable, anyway.

Basically, unskippable story-based achievements are horrible, as are "Win 1000000000000000000 battles" type achievements, especially if they're multiplayer battles only.

But the vast majority of the medals in this game I like. Such as beating the Elite 4 with a single pokemon, or finding all the hidden grottos, or looking in a trash can despite knowing nothing is in there.

Basically, if it's a challenge of some sort, has reasonable numbers, and / or is a weird quirky yet skippable achievement, I like it. The best achievements changes the way you play in order to get that achievement, or makes you explore places you wouldn't normally have explored before, and several of BW2's medals attempted to do that.
