==In the games==
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 facility|battle areas}}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.
 
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.
 
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]].
 
===Checking Ribbons===
{{incomplete|section|Image from Generation VII}}
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).
 
====League Ribbons====
{{main|List of Ribbons in the games#League Ribbons|List of Ribbons in the games → League Ribbons}}
'''League Ribbons''' (Japanese: '''リーグリボン''' ''League Ribbons'') are awarded to every Pokémon in the {{player}}'s current [[party]] when they defeat the [[Elite Four]] and enter the [[Hall of Fame]] in most games. Different Ribbons are awarded for this in [[Generation III]], in {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, in {{g|X and Y}}, in {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, and in {{g[[Pokémon Sun and Moon|Pokémon Sun, Moon]], [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon}}]]. All of these Ribbons are retained if a Pokémon that has them is transferred to a later generation.
 
====Contest Ribbons====
====Tower Ribbons====
{{main|List of Ribbons in the games#Tower Ribbons|List of Ribbons in the games → Tower Ribbons}}
'''Tower Ribbons''' (Japanese: '''タワーリボン''' ''Tower Ribbons'') are awarded to Pokémon that have been used to conquer various challenges in certain {{cat|[[Battle areasfacility|battle facilities}}]].
 
* In Generation III, the facility is the {{gdis|Battle Tower|III}} located in an island in [[Hoenn]]'s southeastern sea, only accessible by [[S.S. Tidal|boat]].
In the Generation IV Battle Tower, one Ribbon is awarded for defeating [[Tower Tycoon Palmer]] the first time in a challenge, and one for defeating him the second time. Three additional Ribbons are rewarded for winning 50 times in a row in Double Battles, Multi Battles against the CPU, or Multi Battles with someone, and another Ribbon is awarded for reaching Rank 5 in the Wi-Fi mode.
 
In Generation VI, two Ribbons are rewarded for defeating a {{tc|Battle Chatelaine}} in either a normal battle or a super battle at the Battle Maison. In Generation VII, two Ribbons are awarded for winning against a {{tc|Battle Legend}} in the Battle Tree.
 
Any Tower Ribbons obtained in Generation III are retained if a Pokémon that has them is transferred to Generation IV or Generation V, and any Tower Ribbons earned in Generation IV are retained into Generation V, but if a Pokémon with any Tower Ribbons is transferred from Generation V to Generation VI through [[Poké Transporter]], the Ribbons will be consolidated into a [[List of Ribbons in the games#Battle Memory Ribbons|Battle Memory Ribbon]].
==In the anime==
[[File:Dawn Celestic Contest.png|thumb|220px|{{an|Dawn}} being awarded a 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 [[GymBadge]]s received from [[BadgeGym Leader]]s in that they are considered proof that a [[Pokémon Coordinator]] has won a particular [[Pokémon Contest]]. In contrast with [[Gym]] Badges, Coordinators only get one 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 the [[Grand Festival]] and compete infor the title of [[GrandTop FestivalCoordinator]]. 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 were 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.

===Other Ribbons===
[[File:Aqua Ribbon.png|thumb|220px|The Aqua Ribbon]]
====Aqua Ribbon====
The '''Aqua Ribbon''' (Japanese: '''アクアリボン''' ''Aqua Ribbon'') is the prize given to the winner of the [[Wallace Cup]]. It can be used for entering theevery known [[Grand Festival]] in ''any'' region, not merely that of the [[region]] it is won in. For this reason, [[Pokémon Coordinator]]s from all over the {{pkmn|world}} travel to the hosting city, which changes every year, to take part in the event.
