I don't know if this has been suggested before, but I was thinking it would be fun to see some achievement badges on Poliwager. Achievements are a tried and tested way of keeping user's engaged and coming back for more - we all like collecting our virtual shinies :p
I was thinking of something with a bronze/silver/gold/platinum ranking (and a few stand alone acheivements), possibly with reaching platinum giving some sort of reward, such as unique decorations that can only be obtained by getting the platinum badges (though the possible prizes are just a side-idea; I'm not sure if it would be more work than it is worth to add them).

The badge ideas I had are (numbers are just placeholder figures; more appropriate numbers are best made by someone who has been a member longer than a few months):

Stand Alone Badges:

Shiny Detective: Find the first shiny of a species
Starter Collector: Have all the starter pokemon
Starter Master: Have the fully evolved forms of all the starter pokemon
Fast Hatcher: Be the first to hatch a new pokemon species

I really like this idea! I don't know how some of them would work (and how the badges themselves would be awarded, code-wise), but I think there could be some work put into this as a possible idea in the future, for sure. Know, however, that if these ever are implemented, the final tier of the badges/achievements will have much much higher requirements, to make people really strive for them. :D

Any other similar ideas would be greatly appreciated. :)
