How do you get the Youngster Medal in Pokémon Go?
You get the Youngster Medal by catching tiny (less than 1KG) Rattata. When you appraise a Pokémon, your Team Leader will comment on its size if it is above or below average weight. You specifically want them to say your Rattata are tiny to count towards this Medal.
- Bronze: Catch 3 tiny Rattata
- Silver: Catch 50 tiny Rattata
- Gold: Catch 300 tiny Rattata
- Platinum: Catch 1,000 tiny Rattata
It's been estimated that around 12% of Rattata that appraise are tiny, which means you'd have to catch a ton, but Rattata are very common and Alolan Rattata also count. You can even Trade for "tiny" Rattata, though. So, if you get some, hold onto them and trade with Friends who've also saved their tiny Rattata.

Events featuring costumed Pikachu will really make a dent in this count. You can also Trade for Pikachu. So, if you get some, hold onto them and trade with Friends who've also saved their Pikachu.

How do you get the Unown Medal in Pokémon Go?
Unown is a Gen II Pokémon with 28 distinct shapes, one for each letter of the alphabet from A to Z, an exclamation point, and a question mark. The more unique shapes of Unown you catch, the closer you get to earning these Medals:
- Bronze: Catch 3 Unown
- Silver: Catch 10 Unown
- Gold: Catch 26 Unown
- Platinum: Catch 28 Unown
Unown are one of the rarest spawning Pokémon out there with some veteran Trainers having never encountered even one outside of an event. However, Niantic does periodically release set letters to spell out words related to real-world events, such as C, H, I, A, G, and O for the Chicago Pokémon Go Fest. You can also Trade for Unown. So, if you get duplicates, hold onto them and trade with Friends who've got duplicates of other Unown.
