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 Country and World Ribbons were given out to winners of Pokémon League tournaments that were held during Pokémon Festa in 2004, 2005 and 2007*. The Regional, National and World Champion ribbons appear to have been intended to be given out in a similar way at corresponding VGC tournaments, however this did not occur. These Ribbons are retained if a Pokémon with them is transferred to a later generation.
