Do you accumulate points for any of these achievements?

Chris said...

"Fisher" for catching Magickarps, though I think it needs to be a certain size.

Kelibath said...

Specifically, Fisherman is for catching XL weight Magikarp, in the same way that Youngster requires the capture of XS ("tiny") Rattata. I'm not sure if these need to be of a set weight or height or if they just need the XL/XS modifier, and whether height counts at all.

Why the hell are they called "Battle Girl" and "Punk Girl"? Seems sort of sexist, why are there no "XXX Boy"s? Does Niantic really need to go all PC on us and have "Battle Girl" all over the place? How about "Battle Trainer" and "Punk Trainer"? Ridiculous...

Unknown said...

It's because in the original game, the random trainers were based on those names. And it changed to what type of pokemon you would face from them. Bird keeper believe it or not had flying type, Fisher would have water so on and so forth

Someone's male privilege is showing...

Techreus said...

Snagger, in the games those corresponded to the gym leaders.

lol, who cares about some petty badge titles. It's not even sexist.

Unknown said...

I'm having an issue I have 3 growlitjs when I caught my third it gave me the Kindle badge but not giving me credit for all my dragon type! I have 2 dratini and and a charmander and isn't showing 3 dragons :/

Anonymous said...

Charmander is fire type, not dragon.

Anonymous said...

Jonathan charmander is labeled as a fire pokemon and not a dragon pokemon that's why it's not counting 3 dragons.

It's about not being sexist because other achievements are called "fisherman" for example so they chose to go with battle girl to make it equal.
That being said, it's not sexist but pretty pathetic

Unknown said...

Wait, it says battle girl regardless of what player character model you chose at the start? Huh? I figured it was "battle boy" or something if you chose the more masculine model and came here to see if that was the case but this is more confusing than anything else I had expected

No, your starter doesn't count in any of the achievements anyways... Charmander in mine doesn't count either since my first Fire Pokémon was Magmar which got me an achievenem t in Kindler. Charmander was not listed in there and still isn't.

Unknown said...

Please multiple the number of items in pokestop

I think you should get perks for obtaining certain badges like the breeder badge.If you hatch 500 eggs then you should hatch more rare type pokemon.
