This achievement will NOT just simply pop-up the second you have taken your 10,000th step on Gran Pulse -- you will have to "claim" it. Read below for more information on how to do this.

Once you are nearing the end of Chapter 11, you will arrive at Oerba, which is Vanille's and Fang's hometown.
Walk all the way until you get to a Cie'th Stone. Head right from there and you will come to a spacious area with a bunch of non-threating enemies (Seekers mostly). Either evade or defeat them and head for the house at the end. Run up the stairs (ignore the Vetala enemy on the ground floor) and inside there will this broken Wall-E look-a-like robot "pet" named Bahkti on the ground.
Sazh can repair it -- if only he has the right components to do so. From that moment on, you will need to collect 5 components in order to repair Bahkti. They are all close by and marked on your map so it's far from difficult to gather them. Except for one, that can only be collected by defeating a Vampire Cie'th. Once all components are gathered, return to Bahkti, the poor broken pet.

When Sazh repaired Bahkti, it will give you a title depending on the amount of steps you have taken on Gran Pulse. Why this little nosy robot would reward you for doing such a thing... who knows.

Title -- amount of steps needed -- reward:
Pilgrim -- Take 4,999 steps on Gran Pulse -- 10 Deceptisols
Sojourner -- Take 5,000 steps on Gran Pulse -- 2 Ultracompact Reactors
Trailblazer -- Take 7,000 steps on Gran Pulse -- Gold Nugget
Cartographer -- Take 9,000 steps on Gran Pulse -- 5 Perfumes
Pulsian Pioneer -- Take 10,000 steps on Gran Pulse -- 3 Platinum Ingots

If you receive a title then you know how many steps you have taken at least already.
For example: if you get the "Sojourner" title you know you're at least half way there. This is the only way to get an idea of how many steps you have taken!
Once you return to the Bahkti and suddenly get the "Puslian Pioneer" title, you will gain the Achievement alongside your 3 Platinum Ingots reward.

There are no missable rewards. If you repair Bahkti and already have taken 10.000 steps, then you'll get all rewards and titles listed above.
Also, this "side quest" is not mandatory to either the completion of Chapter 11 or the main story.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
