Hurray! You’ve saved Jigglypuff!
As a token of thanks, she’s given you this Risk Badge.
Where there’s no risk, there’s no reward, and games make great use of this. When faced with a challenge, the outcome is not certain and there is a risk of loss. If you fail, your character may die and lose a life, you may have to restart a level, or you may lose points from your score. This motivates players to make every attempt count and improve their performance in order to complete a challenge with minimal loss. Yet even in the case of complete loss, games implement several strategies to limit player demotivation (See the Mastery Badge).
