Ribbons

When you check your Pokémon in the status screen, you will see that they have an option for you to check the ribbons they have attached to them. Ribbons are obtained in a variety of ways and there are a total of 80 possible ribbons for your Pokémon to have. This page details and lists all the ribbons you can get as well as the games you obtain them in.

Please note that many of the event ribbons are capable of having their title and decsription changed in accordance to the event in which it is given away. This list only details the core details from the game without going to the event.

As of Pokémon Sword & Shield, there are now Marks that act like Ribbons as well as the ability for each Ribbon to give a special title to each Pokémon.
