Pokemon X and Y Unlocks Guide – Medals, Legendaries, Items and Upgrades


Every game has its own kind of achievements, and Pokemon X and Y is no exception, with many different medals that are awarded to the player whenever he or she hits certain milestones. You can find and meet the conditions for a medal on the Global Link after doing a Game Sync.

These medals require many different feats to be obtained. Some are simple, such as the one in which you need to use the Fly ability numerous times, and other require you to participate in hundreds of battles.
