The '''Diploma''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|賞状|しょうじょう}}''' ''honorable certificate'') is an item awarded in almost all of the [[core series]] [[Pokémon games]] except [[Pokémon Sun and Moon|Sun, Moon]], [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|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 {{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.==History==
In Generation {{gen|I}} and {{gen|II}}, there is only one diploma in the game, awarded for completing the Pokédex. From [[Generation III]] to {{gen|VI}}, there is one diploma awarded for completing the [[regional Pokédex]] and a second for completing the [[National Pokédex]].

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 Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, instead of a diploma, the player is given stamps on their {{ga|Trainer Card}} 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. In [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], the player can receive a diploma from the director for completing their Kanto Pokédex; due to only Pokémon in the Kanto Pokédex existing in these games, there is no diploma for completing the National Pokédex.
