I made my Pikachu earn all the Badges, when I checked my other Pikachus, they also had all the badges!

A useful glitch though
It's because Pikachu's all start with the same maximum stats.

Actually, the game is supposed to work that way.

When you earn a Pokeathlon medal for a specific Pokemon, it is just accounting the fact that you used a pikachu to earn the medal, but it doesn't take into account that a specific Pikachu won a medal.

This is especially proven by the fact that the second room only counts how many medals you have earned with a certain species of Pokemon.


Excerpt from Bulbapedia:

By winning events in the Pokéathlon, the participating Pokémon will earn medals for their species.
