Pokémon Go Medals

Sometimes referred to as Pokémon Go Badges, are medals be completing various tasks and you earn bonus rewards by collecting them. Becoming stronger with every medal you have earned.

Medals have three tiers, Bronze, Silver and Gold, increasing the bonus rewards at each tier. For example, to earn the Schoolkid Medal, you must capture 10 normal Pokémon to get your Bronze Schoolkid Badge. Rewarding you +1 to your Catch Bonus. Having a Silver Schoolkid Medal, you are rewarded with +2 and so on. Keep in mind, this will only apply to Normal-type Pokémon.

Not all Medals will reward you with increased bonus stats. Earning the Kanto badge, for instance, will unlock specific clothing to customise your character.

Pokemon Go Catch Bonus

Before we get onto the list of Pokémon Go Medals/Pokémon Go Badges, we will explain more on the Catch Bonus. Earning Medals that offer Catch Bonuses just like the Schoolkid Medal mentioned above, you will notice the bonus rewards are + 1 for Bronze, +2 for Silver and +3 for Gold Medals.

Those numbers represent how much has been added to your catch multiplier. Bronze medals are + 1 which is equivalent to 1.1x bonus. In simple terms, your catch bonus is increased by 10%. Silver Medals are + 2, that applies 1.2 to Catch Bonus which is 20% extra. Gold medals +3 giving you a 1.3x to your Catch multiplier that is 30% more successful at catching Pokémon.

Catch Bonus for Pokémon that have two types

Some Pokémon supports dual types like Fire-type/Flying-type and therefore the Catch Bonus rewards are slightly altered. For Pokémon with two types, you will be rewarded of the average of both Medal bonuses. See table below of the different combinations of multipliers.

Type 1 MedalType 2 MedalCatch Bonus Multiplier
NoneNone1x
NoneBronze1.05x
NoneSilver1.1x
NoneGold1.15x
Bronze
Bronze1.1x
BronzeSilver1.15x
BronzeGold1.2x
SilverSilver1.2x
SilverGold1.25x
GoldGold1.3x

This is worked out by adding both Medal bonuses and then dividing by 2. Bronze Medal gives a + 1 and Silver Medal + 2 totally at 3, divide that by two giving you 1.5. You will need to divide by 10 to convert it into the multiplier percent ratio giving you 0.15. Add that to your base which is 1 you will end up with 1.15.
