==In the games==

Besides competing in GenerationContests, IIIsome Ribbons are awarded for conquering special [[Battle facility|battle facilities]] like the [[Battle Tower]], others are obtainable from various NPCs in-game, and some are only distributed on [[event Pokémon]]. In Generation III, Ribbons also had no names, they only had unique icons and descriptions.

Ribbons were first introduced in [[Generation III]]. In Generation III, the large majority were obtained by competing in and winning [[Pokémon Contest]]s, but in later generations, a larger variety of Ribbons have been added. Besides competing in Contests, some Ribbons are awarded for conquering special {{cat|battle areas}} like the [[Battle Tower]], others are obtainable from various NPCs in-game, and some are only distributed on [[event Pokémon]]. Since [[Generation IV]], a Pokémon's Ribbons can be viewed on its summary screen, but in Generation III, Ribbons could only be viewed on the [[PokéNav]] in {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}} and could not be viewed at all in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} (though the data would still be safely retained if a Pokémon had any Ribbons). In Generation III, Ribbons also had no names, they only had unique icons and descriptions.
 
In the [[Generation V]] games, there are no ways to earn any Ribbons in-game, but Pokémon distributed through events could have Ribbons, and Pokémon transferred from a previous generation also retained their Ribbons. The Generation V games also introduced categories for the Ribbons, dividing them into League, Contest, Tower, Memorial, and Gift Ribbons.
 
Prior to [[Generation VI]], Ribbons were only added (and a few changed), and if a Pokémon had Ribbons and was transferred to a later generation, all of its Ribbons would be retained and could be viewed on its status screen. Generation VI, however, reduced the total number of Ribbons from 80 to 46 (48 counting different versions of the Contest/Battle Memory Ribbons) by consolidating the Contest and Tower Ribbons from previous generations. If a Pokémon with Contest or Tower Ribbons is transferred from Generation V to VI or VII through [[Poké Transporter]], all of its Contest and Tower Ribbons are replaced by a [[List of Ribbons in the games#Contest Memory Ribbons|Contest Memory Ribbon]] or a [[List of Ribbons in the games#Battle Memory Ribbons|Battle Memory Ribbon]].

All of these Ribbons are retained if a Pokémon that has them is transferred to a later generation.

Contest Ribbons are the only type of Ribbons found in the games to be featured in the {{pkmn|anime}}.

====Memorial Ribbons====
:''See also: [[{{main|List of Ribbons in the games#Memorial Ribbons|List of Ribbons in the games → Memorial Ribbons]]''}}
'''Memorial Ribbons''' (Japanese: '''メモリーリボン''' ''Memory Ribbons'') are usually awarded for an in-game achievement, but some require nothing more than talking to the correct NPC at the correct time. They are often awarded only to the first Pokémon in the player's party, but some are awarded to all members of the player's party.
 
====Gift Ribbons====
:''See also: [[{{main|List of Ribbons in the games#Gift Ribbons|List of Ribbons in the games → Gift Ribbons]]''}}
'''Gift Ribbons''' (Japanese: '''プレゼントリボン''' ''Present Ribbons''), in contrast to all other types, cannot be obtained in-game in [[core series]] Pokémon games. Most are found on [[event Pokémon]]. The {{DL|List of Ribbons in the games|National Ribbon}} and the {{DL|List of Ribbons in the games|Earth Ribbon}} can be earned in [[Pokémon Colosseum]] and [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]].
 
Some Gift Ribbons prohibit Pokémon with them from being traded over the [[Global Trade System|GTS]] or through [[Wonder Trade]].
 
=====Gift Ribbon descriptions=====
:''See also: [[{{main|List of Ribbons in the games#Gift Ribbon descriptions|List of Ribbons in the games → Gift Ribbon descriptions]]''}}
By participating in certain Pokémon activities, (such as the Regional, National, and Global tournaments for 2003, 2004, and 2005) ribbonRibbon descriptions would be associated with certain Gift Ribbons distributed, based on the event itself.
 
These variable descriptions were removed in the [[Generation V]] games.
 
==In the anime==
[[File:AshDawn MayCelestic Terracotta RibbonContest.png|thumb|175px220px|Ash and May{{an|Dawn}} holdingbeing theawarded Terracottaa Ribbon]]
In the [[Pokémon {{pkmn|anime]]}}, Ribbons are not attached to individual {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} like in the {{pkmn|games}}. Instead, they can be compared to [[Badge]]s earnedreceived atfrom [[Gym Leader]]s. Theyin that they are considered proof that a [[Pokémon Coordinator]] has won a particular[[Pokémon {{pkmn|Contest}}]]. In contrast with [[Gym]] Badges, Coordinators only get a singleone chance of earning a particular Ribbon in a certain Pokémon Contest within a specific time period. They also must compete with other Coordinators to earn it.
 
OnceRibbons are awarded by the Chief of the [[Pokémon Activities Committee]], [[Raoul Contesta]], and once a Coordinator earnscollects five Ribbons, they are able to enter and compete in the [[Grand Festival]], theand Contestcompete equivalent offor the title of [[PokémonTop League ConferenceCoordinator]]. Ribbons also do not expire, and multiple years can be used to collect the five needed for the Grand Festival. However, after being used to enter the competition, the five Ribbons cannot be used again. In addition, Ribbons can only be used in the Grand Festival of the [[region]] where they arewere earned, with the notable exception of somethe {{DL|Ribbon|Aqua Ribbon}}.
 
For a collection of images depicting Ribbons in the anime, please see [[a:Category:Ribbons|Ribbons]] on the [[Bulbagarden Archives]]. The following is a list of all known Ribbons from the regions of [[Kanto]], [[Hoenn]], and [[Sinnoh]]. There are also Ribbons for the [[Johto]] region, although the locations where they are obtained are unknown.
