Gift Ribbons

The Gift Ribbons all originate from sources external to the core series Pokémon games. Two, the National Ribbon and the Earth Ribbon, come from Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD, which have connectivity with the core Generation III games. Otherwise, the most common Gift Ribbons are distributed on event Pokémon. The remaining Ribbons appear to be intended to be awarded to the teams of winners of Video Game Championship events, but it is unclear the extent to which this has actually occurred. These Ribbons are retained if a Pokémon with them is transferred to a later generation.

Gift Ribbon descriptions

Data for the following Gift Ribbon descriptions appear in the Generation III and Generation IV games. They were removed in the Generation V games and onwards.

By participating in certain Pokémon activities, (such as the Regional, National, and Global tournaments for 2003, 2004, and 2005) Ribbon descriptions would be associated with certain Gift Ribbons distributed, based on the event itself.

In Generation III, all Gift Ribbons by default have an empty description associated with them. Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD make use of the "Ribbon awarded for clearing all difficulties." and "100-straight Win Commemorative Ribbon" descriptions by assigning them to the National and Earth ribbons respectively. These assignments are then transferred to any Generation III handheld game whenever those games receive a Pokémon with their respective ribbon attached. The descriptions are hard coded for both Ribbons in Generation IV and onwards.

In Generation IV, certain Gift Ribbons by default have the description "A commemorative Ribbon obtained in a mysterious location."DP or "A commemorative Ribbon obtained in a Mystery Zone."PtHGSS associated with them. When the player receives a Pokémon holding either a Classic Ribbon or a Premier Ribbon via Mystery Gift, their descriptions are assigned to "A Ribbon that proclaims love for Pokémon" and "Special Holiday Ribbon" respectively. The descriptions are hard coded for both Ribbons in Generation V and onwards.

Generation III

The names of the following Gift Ribbon descriptions appear in a text dump from Pokémon Ruby. Text strings for these Ribbons also appear in the Generation IV games. There are 64 total, with only two (for the Earth and National Ribbons) seeing actual use in Generation III and another two (for the Classic and Premier Ribbons) in Generation IV.
