A Ribbon Cup of the Kanto region
A Ribbon Cup of the Hoenn region

The Ribbon Cup (Japanese: リボンカップ Ribbon Cup) is the award given to the winner of a Grand Festival. It is made ​​of pure gold and its design varies depending on the region.

In order to compete for the Ribbon Cup, a Pokémon Coordinator must win at least five Contest Ribbons of a single region and sign up for that region's Grand Festival. The winner of the entire competition will be given the Ribbon Cup, as well as the title of Top Coordinator.

In The Ribbon Cup Caper, Brodie, a former member of Team Magma, stole the Hoenn Ribbon Cup so he could sell it and make some money. However, after being confronted by Ash, his friends, Raoul Contesta, and Officer Jenny, Brodie gave it up, allowing the Hoenn Grand Festival to go on as planned.

According to Mr. Contesta, a real Ribbon Cup has the official seal from the Contest Committee in its interior. This allows the Cup to be differentiated from fake ones.
