Need clarification on whether Mew, Meltan and Melmetal count. They probably don't.

The '''Diploma''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|賞状|しょうじょう}}''' ''honorable certificate'') is an item awarded in all of the [[core series]] [[Pokémon games]] fromexcept [[GenerationPokémon Sun and Moon|Sun, Moon]]s, {{Gen|I}}[[Pokémon toUltra {{GenSun and Ultra Moon|VI}}Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon]] for completing various modes of the [[Pokédex]]. It is obtained from [[Game Freak]]'s lead developer after the player has completed their Pokédex.
 
In Generation {{gen|I}} and {{gen|II}}, there is only one diploma in the game, awarded for completing the Pokédex. From [[Generation III]] onward, there is one diploma awarded for completing the [[regional Pokédex]] and a second for completing the [[National 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 {{DL|origin marking|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.
 
In [[Generation VII]], no diploma are awarded in Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Instead, stamps are given on the {{ga|Trainer Card}} to reward the player for completing the various regional Pokédexes. There is no reward for catching all the Pokémon as of this generation, likely because the National Pokédex is not obtainable in these games. One diploma is awarded in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee]], which is for completion of the Pokédex.
