After obtaining the Diploma, how do you look at it again?

List of diploma locations

I've created a list of locations of the diploma in each generation, but I can only remember the location for RGBY and FRLG. This list needs completing by anyone who knows the locations. TIMMY 10:52, 12 December 2008 (UTC) I'll edit that in now MasterRichmond 10:59, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Gen II Picture

Does anyone have a picture of the Generation II diploma? -- Clarky13 10:20, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I got mine which I can upload. I'm pretty sure there's another diploma for gen 3 and 4 though as the ones there are only regional. If somebody has the national diplomas for those generations they should upload them.MasterRichmond 08:36, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

R/S National

Oh crap. I managed to get all Hoenn 202 in R/S (via cheats ._. had no idea then about version-exclusives and evolution via trade D:) but 386? How the hell I am even supossed to unlock National Mode when I have you-know-what. Marked +-+-+ 16:57, 5 September 2011 (UTC) PS.I think I can get FR/LG regional in near future, 19 missing. Most of missing are version-exclusives, the other are Hitmonlee, Kabuto(ps) and Dragonite. (stupid 60 national stuff ._. god that's just screwed. I don't think if I am able to do that AGAIN.)

Well nevermind now. Just acquired National Dex in Ruby after trading with LeafGreen. :D Marked +-+-+ 18:41, 2 February 2012 (UTC)


Diploma is got from Game Freak building, Busy Road?, Castellia City - unsigned comment from Passlogin (talkcontribs)

Phione in Gen VI

I did not get Phione on my Pokemon X version, but was still given the diploma, so I don't see where the information that it is required could have come from. Mongoose (talk) 21:19, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

At some point, I got the impression that the diplomas don't actually check specific Pokemon, but instead only count how many Pokemon you've seen (species, that is; perhaps in the correct range, for non-National Dex diplomas). Maybe it's only true for some games, or maybe I was completely wrong, but it may well deserve double-checking (even for different types of diplomas in the same game).
