Do you wish there were more clothing options for your trainers? I know I do. It seems like everyone essentially looks the same. Rest easy now, trainers! Niantic has released new outfit options.
Now anyone and everyone can unlock the Battle Girl, Jogger, or Fisherman outfits. You not only have to spend your hard-to-gather coins on these outfits, but you have to complete the appropriate medals just to unlock the option.
The Battle Girl medal rewards you with an outfit of the same name. It stylizes your character after the Pokemon NPC, which usually sports fighting type Pokemon. You can get this medal by completing Gym battles.
The Jogger Medal unlocks the sporty jogging outfit. As the name implies, you unlock this one by traveling a total distance. The gold Jogger metal is from walking a total of 1000 KM.
The Fisherman medal is arguably the hardest one to complete. This requires trainers to catch “big” Magikarp. There is an approximate 15% chance of a spawning Magikarp being “big”, so to get the gold medal of 300 “big” Magikarp would require you to catch nearly 2,000 of the floppy fish Pokemon.
The announcement doesn’t say what level of the medal is needed to unlock the outfit options, so better get going while you can!
