Revision as of 10:41, 15 February 2020

The blue pentagon, a type of origin mark, highlighted on a Garchomp's status screen in Generation VI

An origin mark (Japanese: 出身マーク origin mark), previously known as an origin marking (Japanese: 出身地マーク place of origin mark) in Pokémon Bank, is an icon displayed on the summary screen of Pokémon from Generation VI onward that indicates the set of games it originated in. A Pokémon can only have one origin mark.

Pokémon that are hatched, caught, or received as a gift in a Generation I, II, VI, VII, or VIII game will have an origin mark. Even if the Pokémon's parents have different or no origin mark, a bred Pokémon's origin mark always matches the game in which it was bred.

On the summary screen, the origin mark is placed near the markings.

Types of origin mark

Blue pentagon

The blue pentagon[1][2] (Japanese: 五角形のマーク blue pentagon mark[3]) is an origin mark that Pokémon obtained in the Generation VI games have. Pokémon that were hatched, caught, or received as a gift in a Generation VI game have the blue pentagon.

Prior to the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, having a blue pentagon was referred to as being Kalos native.[4] While the blue pentagon is blue in the Generation VI games and Pokémon Bank, it is black in the Generation VII and VIII games as well as Pokémon HOME.

All of the first 721 Pokémon can have the blue pentagon, as each of them can be caught, bred, or were distributed as an event Pokémon to Generation VI games. In addition, Mr. Rime can have the blue pentagon, due to Mime Jr. being able to have it.

Black clover

The black clover[5] (also known as the Alola symbol[6]) is an origin mark that Pokémon obtained in the Nintendo 3DS Generation VII games have. Pokémon that were hatched, caught, or received as a gift in Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, or Ultra Moon have the black clover.

801 of the first 807 Pokémon can have the black clover, as only that many Pokémon can be caught, bred, or have been distributed as event Pokémon to Generation VII games. Unown, Deoxys, Keldeo, Genesect, Diancie, and Volcanion cannot have the black clover. In addition, Mr. Rime can have the black clover, due to Mime Jr. being able to have it.

Game Boy icon

The Game Boy icon is an origin mark that Pokémon transferred from the Generation I and II Virtual Console games to Pokémon Bank via Poké Transporter have.

Only the first 251 Pokémon, as well as the 18 evolutions of these Pokémon introduced in later generations (that do not exclusively evolve from regional forms), can have the Game Boy origin mark.

GO icon

The GO icon is an origin mark that Pokémon transferred from Pokémon GO via GO Park have. While it is in the programming of the Nintendo 3DS Generation VII games, it was not used until Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.

Only the first 150 Pokémon, Meltan and Melmetal, as well as the 8 cross-generational evolutions of Generation I Pokémon available in Pokémon Sword and Shield (that do not exclusively evolve from regional forms) can have the GO origin mark. As Mew obtained in Pokémon GO cannot be transferred to other games, Mew cannot have the GO origin mark.

Let's Go icon

The Let's Go icon is an origin mark that Pokémon obtained in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! have. Although it is not displayed in Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, it is displayed in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Only the first 151 Pokémon, as well as the 8 cross-generational evolutions of Generation I Pokémon available in Pokémon Sword and Shield (that do not exclusively evolve from regional forms) can have the Let's Go origin mark. As Meltan and Melmetal must be transferred from Pokémon GO, they cannot have the Let's Go origin mark.

Galar symbol

The Galar symbol[7] is an origin mark that Pokémon obtained in the Generation VIII games have. Pokémon that were hatched, caught, or received as a gift in a Generation VIII game have the Galar symbol.

All 400 Pokémon in the Galar Pokédex can have the Galar symbol origin mark. Out of the currently available Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Shield outside the Pokédex, 17 can have the Galar symbol, bringing the total number of available Pokémon to 417.

No origin mark

Pokémon obtained in the Generation III, IV, V games do not have any origin mark. Although Pokémon obtained in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! do not display an origin mark in-game, they display one if transferred to Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Only the first 649 Pokémon, Sylveon and Mr. Rime can lack an origin mark.

Function

In official live tournaments in Generation VI, VII, and VIII, as well as at the Battle Spot in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, only Pokémon with a particular origin mark can be used.

  • For Generation VI official live tournaments and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Battle Spot, only Pokémon with the blue pentagon can be used.
  • For Generation VII official live tournaments, only Pokémon with the black clover can be used.
  • For Generation VIII official live tournaments, only Pokémon with the Galar symbol can be used.

In Pokémon Bank's list mode, it is possible to filter Pokémon by their origin mark (although it is not possible to filter for Pokémon that have none).

In Pokémon X and Y, if the player has owned a species of Pokémon, but only a Pokémon that does not have a blue pentagon, it will be marked in the Pokédex differently. The player will receive a crown on the Pokédex screen for each of the Kalos Pokédexes only if the Pokédex is completed using only Pokémon that have a blue pentagon. The player will receive a different diploma for a Pokédex completed using Pokémon without a blue pentagon. It is still possible to obtain a crown and get the normal diploma if the Pokédex is later completed using only Pokémon with a blue pentagon.

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, if the player talks to Shigeki Morimoto while they have a Pokémon with the Game Boy icon in their party, he will comment that it takes him back, then give a trivium about the development of the Generation I core series games. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, he will also detail the development of the Generation II core series games if shown a Pokémon from the Virtual Console releases of the Generation II games.
