[[File:XY Kalos Diploma.png|thumb|right|A diploma given after finishing all three Kalos Pokédexes (Pokémon X and Y)]]
The '''Diploma''' (Japanese: '''しょうじょう''' ''honorable certificate'') is an item awarded in all of the main handheld Pokémon games for completing various modes of the [[Pokédex]]. It is obtained from [[Game Freak]]'s lead developer after the player has completed their Pokédex.
In {{g|X and Y}}, a total of five diplomas are awarded: one for capturing every Pokémon in each of the [[List of Pokémon by Kalos Pokédex number|Kalos Pokédexes]], one for obtaining all of those three diplomas, and one for completing the National Pokédex. These diplomas are different if the player completed their Pokédex only with [[blue pentagon]] Pokémon.
In {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, an additional Diploma can be received if the player shows the Game Freak lead developer a Pokémon that was originally caught in either {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}} or {{game|Emerald}}; unlike most diplomas, this one is customized according to the Pokémon shown to the developer, with its Generation III sprite appearing in the bottom-left corner.
