Moving on, you will have a Logbook of your own where every milestone and achievement of yours will be recorded so that you can show off to your friends.

Then there is the PokeMileage Club that allows you to buy items and play attractions in exchange of you Poke Miles. Needless to say, the items will be transferred to your game. For those whoo don’t know, Poke Miles are actually the distance covered by the player with their characters.

As you progress through the game and accomplish different feats, you will be awarded with Medals that will be displayed on your PGL account.

Moreover, the platform will provide a place for you to compare and compete in ranking against the top Trainers all over the globe. You get to check out stats to find out the most popular Pokemon; names of the trending Pokemon in the community and the Contest Spectaculars and so on.

Linking the Game to PGL
The first thing you need to do is to create a Game Sync ID.

Just hit Game Sync in PSS and wait for the game to be authenticated. After that, you will get a Game Sync ID that in turn has to be entered to your PGL account. You can do so in the Account Settings if you already own a PGL account.

Rating Battles
This is one way to stay connected with the community; the final rankings of each season the ranks from Rating Battles are posted online. You will be able to check out where you and your friends stand in comparison to each other and their previous seasons.

You can enter the Rating Battles from the Battle Spot on the PSS by choosing Random Matchup Rating Battle. Fist timers will get a Digital Player ID at this point.

Online Competition
One of the most important activities on the PGL is of course, the Online Competitions. They can be regional or international and if you have signed up you will get to register to the upcoming competitions.

From your PSS you will have to choose the Battle Spot option, then select Online Competition, and hit Participate to get you Digital Player ID.

The Pokemon in your PC Battle Box can be used in these competitions. Just wait for the competition to open and then visit Battle Spot on your PSS, Go to Online Competition and choose Battle to start playing.

The best part is, even if you don’t win the battles here, you still get prizes for participation. You are looking at things like rare Berries that can not be found elsewhere.
