Just like any other games, anything can be possible in Pokemon GO. But of course, the decision power still relies with Niantic. Arguably, one of the best things that might happen to the hit Augmented Reality title is the introduction of Medals. While this can be a shot to the moon, there's a significant percentage it might happen in the future. Why? That's because the studio, of recent memory, has been very committed to listening to feedbacks and/or suggestions from the community.
According to Otakukart, the unique feature basically refers to the achievements players get from battling a good number of gyms. It could also mean catching a particular kind of Pokemon -- be it rare or not. Or perhaps, it's synonymous to acquiring a specific requirement or something.
With the addition of Gen 2 Pokemon GO monsters, Medals can certainly be a thing to look forward to. The publication also states that the arrival of two new Pokemon types -- namely, Dark and Steel -- could signal the arrival of the aforesaid feature. After all, both Umbreon and Steelix are expected to be unleashed anytime soon. So, in a sense, it's only right for the studio to create a specific set of medals for these special species.
Apart from the aforementioned monsters, Legendary Pokemon could also be included. Heck, these types of creatures are even apt for having medal rewards. After all, they're considered on top of the line. It's just a matter of time, though, before anything of these can happen.
It holds true that Niantic has yet to give an official word about the feature's arrival to Pokemon GO. However, it's also true that lately, the developer has been all ears on every concern/suggestion the fandom has. And take note: Medals are one of the things fans have been dying to see in the game.
