Like the title of the question says, is there any point of getting a good or bad score in the games?
What is the difference in getting 20000 points in the Wailord game to 50000 points?

All l know is that it is definitely recommended to pass the objective mark in each game, so you can obtain the Pokemon but what is the point in getting more points, and what does the score affect if anything?

Thanks in advance!~

blackhole's answer seems to resolve your question, so I hope you're okay with having the "unresolved" tag removed.

Not really the score is just like any typical game which can go higher even though you've already reached the need percentage. As long as you reach what you're aiming for the Pokemon is yours the rest of the game could be basically just be for pleasure at that point and nothing more.

Here's a linke to a detailed list of the minimum score needed to capture the Pokemon from Bulbapedia: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Pokémon_Dream_World_mini-games.

After you get the score as I said the rest is up you of whether you continue or do something else while the time passes.
