Example of titles being shown when entering a battle in the Battle Tower in Wyndon. The examples shown are Shiny Antique form Polteageist displaying the Misty Mark, and Shiny Appletun displaying the Curry Mark, respectively.

A title or special title is a phrase that can display after a Pokémon's name when it is sent out in battle. Titles were introduced in Pokémon Sword and Shield, and are also present in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.[1]

If a Pokémon has any mark or Ribbon, the title corresponding to it can be freely toggled on and off from the Pokémon's summary. Only one title can be active at a time, selecting a different Ribbon or mark from the summary will replace the currently equipped title. In Link Battles, the opposing player's Pokémon will display any equipped title as well.

If a title is equipped, that data is retained through trade and transfer to other games, but will not be displayed when sent into battle in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl nor Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
