"Pokemon Go" shows no signs of slowing down as the world continues to be hooked to the said augmented reality title. That being said, there may be some people who wish to take their gaming experience and accomplishments notably further.

Most "Pokemon Go" players find being able to capture all creatures in a short span of time as the ultimate success, wherein others see evolving and conquering gyms similarly. One attribute that some may have put aside is the collection of Badges in an understandable manner.

According to I Tech Post, it is an arguable fact that Badges are not as important in "Pokemon Go" as it should actually be. Not affecting many attributes or commodities in a negative-and sometimes even a positive way, Badges are simply labels that lets other players know of their dedication and the result of dwelling deeper into the game.

As per The Bit Bag, "Pokemon Go" has a variety of badges to award those who dedicate ample time and work for the said app. Some include Badges given after walking a certain distance, evolving a certain number of Pokemon, hatching a number of eggs, capturing a designated amount of flying/poison/ground/fighting/normal/fairy/fire and bug Pokemon and even reaching a number of captured Big Magikarp.

Though it was a confirmed and undisputedly vital part of the animated series, "Pokemon Go" Badges only offer mere bragging rights. In the near future, such Badges could mean more than what they are, though no announcement has been made official.

While in the talk of further dwelling into "Pokemon Go," Telegraph reported that Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg was allegedly caught playing the Niantic game during a debate in parliament. Such exhibition of amusement to the game has proven to the masses that the game could either make or break an individual if mishandled or played at the wrong time.

"Pokemon Go" users are recommended to keep their stability intact before becoming too well-deep in the game. Albeit the goals' importance, safety is considered the utmost concern and must not be put at risk.
