Pokemon GO: Platinum Medals and Requirements

Medals are part of the Pokemon GO progression system. They are your in-game milestones awarded for completing various tasks like catching several specific Pokemon types. A new fourth tier of medals, Platinum Medals, is now available in Pokemon GO as part of the GO Beyond update. Platinum Medals are a step up from the existing Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals, and they have the highest requirements.

During GO Beyond, the Trainer level caps increase from 40 to 50. Grinding to max level is no easy task, and players will need to complete daunting challenges and collect a ton of XP. You will need to earn some Platinum Medals as part of a few level 41 to 50 requirements in Pokemon GO. The game tracks all of your stats, which is what determines your medals. Things like hatching eggs and catching Pokemon are all tallied up and tied to your account. Reaching different milestones unlocks these medals.

How do medals work in Pokemon GO

Medals can be broken up into different categories: Catch Medals and Activity Medals. You can unlock Catch Medals by catching a set number of specific Pokemon types. To earn every Platinum Catch Medal, you’ll need to catch 2,500 of every Pokemon. Activity Medals include other tasks like hatching a certain number of eggs and winning raids.

You can view your medals inside Pokemon GO by tapping on your avatar on the screen’s bottom-left and scrolling down. There, you can see the medals broken out into two sections. The top area is for regular Medals, and the bottom is for Catch Medals. The latter provides Catch Bonuses, which increase the chances of catching that Pokemon type.

The higher the medal, the more substantial the catch bonus. Bronze Medals provide +1 Catch Bonus, Silver +2, Gold +3, and Platinum will add +4. For multi-type Pokemon, the Catch Bonus is an average of the bonuses for each type. We’re not entirely sure what the + numbers represent, but many players think it is a flat percent chance increase.
