Since my last post, I have done everything I had planned to do on the 6th Gen PGL for those games. Played the various attractions, tried each one at least once (then more on OR/AS). Below are some thoughts on them:
Poke Doll Grabber: Not very easy and takes quite long to complete, I only played it once here. But I like how it is based on skill and how each difficulty level focuses on a different generation of Pokemon.
Mine Cart Adventure: This feels rather strategy-based which I like. Not the easiest either though. If I had had more time, I might have played it more.
Graffiti Eraser: Pretty fun, but the scores feel random (except for legendary dolls which are apparently set to 50 points, according to Bulbapedia) and it takes longer to complete than the one below.
Balloon Popping: I really don't understand how the scores work here, it feels so random. But it is simple and goes fast to complete, and for those reasons, it is (or rather was) my favorite out of the attractions.
Either way, I had played 10 times on each game before I started on this, so I had to play 90 more times in order to get to 100. But I played 91 times on each game just to be sure.
Overall, the games were okay but not that fun, it's no wonder I didn't play them much before this, and I would likely not have done this if it weren't for the Medal. I preferred the 5th Gen PGL and the Dream World, it feels like it was more motivating and rewarding. Too bad 6th Gen didn't follow up on it very well, maybe 7th Gen will? One can always dream...
I was a bit unsure about whether I would be able to get this done in time since it wasn't very motivating to do, but I managed to get it done, which I'm happy about. The fact that there was a limit for how many items you could have stored on the PGL at once was also rather annoying as it meant I had to Game Sync several times just to obtain all the items on the games. The slowdowns and semi-glitchyness of the PGL site was also annoying at times. Thankfully, the Balloon Popping minigame went so fast to complete that I didn't have to waste too much time on this.
Once I had played 101 times, I did one more Game Sync and I had unlocked the medal I was after: 100 PokéMileage Club Plays. Glad I got it. After that, I used the last Poke Miles I had on each game to buy various items from the Pokemileage Club. On X, I bought 4 Ability Capsules because I could and for fun. On Y, I bought 25 PP Ups. And some other minor items on both games. Then I did a final Game Sync to obtain all the items on my games. Now I'm done with the 6th Gen PGL on these games (and in total too since I have done the same thing on OR/AS as well), I have 0 Poke Miles left on my accounts and it will close down tomorrow so I won't be able to log in anymore soon. I don't have many Poke Miles left in the games either since I had to send most of them to the PGL. But I can get more from Bank and other sources (like Wonder Trading) so it isn't that bad. Though I don't really need any more for anything, so it isn't really necessary.
I also managed to get 99 points on the Balloon Popping attraction, which happened on the very last time I played it according to my notes. As a random bonus, I'm attaching a picture of it in the spoiler below, just for fun.
My final result regarding the Medals became 135 on X and 130 on Y which is satisfying. There appears to be (or have been) 168 in total, so I'm quite happy about this. I definitely preferred the Medal system in B2/W2 though, I hope they can return to it in some future game. If not Sun/Moon, then maybe whatever comes after them.
Once the PGL has closed down (which will be tomorrow), I will do a list of all the Medals I didn't obtain in these games.
