Pokemon Go tracks an impressive amount of stats as you play the game.
You may have found locations such as the Pokedex that show the number of different Pokemon that you have caught and seen, but you might be curious about the total number of Pokemon that you have actually caught.
This includes every single duplicate of every single Pokemon that you have captured with one of your Pokeballs.
Fortunately, you can find this information by navigating to the medal section of your player card.
By selecting any of those medals you will be able to determine the total number of times that you have performed a game action that counts towards that medal.
One of these medals is for the total number of Pokemon that have been caught, so continue below to see how to find that information.
