How to earn Pokémon Unite medals
You can earn multiple medals each round based on how well you play compared to others in the arena. If there's a specific medal you want to go after, make note of what requirements unlock it, and then aim to meet those challenges. For instance, if you want to get the Healed, Best Score, and Gold Supporter medals, you'll need to heal teammates as often as you can, score the most goals during the round, and score at least 80 points before time runs out. Decide on your goals before you start the round and work to make them a reality.
