A few Seals are supplied whenwith a coordinator receives aParty Seal Case, but the majority are bought at shops and markets.]]
[[File:Dawn buying Seals.png|thumb|left|220px|Dawn buying Seals]]
In the [[Pokémon anime]], Seals were featured for the first time in ''[[DP011|Mounting a Coordinator Assault!]]''. In this [[canon]], Seals are commonly used during [[Pokémon Contest]]s in the [[Sinnoh]] [[region]]. In contrast with the {{pkmn|games}}, where multiple Seals at a time can be attached to a [[Ball Capsule]], only one Seal is used per Ball Capsule in the anime.
 
<gallery>[[Pokémon Coordinator]]s use Seals to make the entrance of their {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} more attractive, since it is important to leave an impression when the Pokémon is sent out of its [[Poké Ball]]. Additionally, the use of Seals is often commented on by the [[Contest Judge]]s, as they start forming opinions from the very beginning of a [[Appeal|performance]] or [[Contest Battle|battle]].

==A Triviafew ==Seals are supplied when a Coordinator registers for a [[Contest Pass]], and additional Seals can be bought at shops or markets. In ''[[DP113|Hold the Phione!]]'', {{an|Dawn}} was seen buying new Seals for {{cat|Dawn's Pokémon|her Pokémon}} at a [[Poké Mart]] in [[Chocovine Town]].
*A [[glitch]] on the [[Global Terminal|GTS]] allows the {{player-}} to get an [[item]] called {{DL|List of dummied out key items|Seal Bag}}, which holds ten seals. Its function was superseded by the {{DL|List of key items in Generation IV|Seal Case}}.
===Gallery===
All of the ten types of Seals sold at the [[Sunyshore Market]] in the games were featured over the course of the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}. For a collection of images showing Seals and their effects in the anime, please see [[a:Category:Seals|Seals]] on the [[Bulbagarden Archives]].

===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
In ''[[PS354|Knowledge of the Unown I]]'', {{adv|Platinum}} received a few Seals and a Ball Capsule as thanks for giving the [[Pokémon News Press]] information on {{p|Unown}}. The Seals proved to be helpful in the [[Solaceon Ruins]] where Platinum, {{adv|Diamond}}, and {{adv|Pearl}} ended up trapped in the dark while helping two Unown reunite with their friends. She accidentally dropped her {{TP|Platinum|Prinplup}}'s {{i|Poké Ball}} and the light emanated by the Seal's effect allowed the group to find the trapped Unown.

==Trivia==
* A [[glitch]] on the [[Global Terminal|GTS]] allows the {{player}} to get an [[item]] called {{DL|List of unobtainable items|Seal Bag}}, which holds ten Seals. Its function was superseded by the [[Seal Case]].
