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. A bred Pokémon's origin mark always matches the game in which it was bred, regardless of its parents' origin marks.

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

Types of origin marks

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. The name "blue pentagon" comes from the fact that it was blue in its debut generation, despite it being black in later generations.

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, Ursaluna, Kleavor, and Wyrdeer can have the blue pentagon, due to Mime Jr., Ursaring, Scyther, and Stantler 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, Ursaluna, Kleavor, and Wyrdeer can have the black clover, due to Mime Jr., Ursaring, Scyther, and Stantler being able to have it.

Game Boy mark

The Game Boy mark 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 21 evolutions of these Pokémon introduced in later generations (that do not exclusively evolve from regional forms), can have the Game Boy origin mark.

Pokémon GO mark

The GO mark is an origin mark that Pokémon transferred from Pokémon GO have (whether transferred via GO Park or GO Transporter). 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!. It is a stylized G.

All Pokémon that can be obtained in Pokémon GO (except for Spinda), as well as their cross-generational evolutions, can have the GO origin mark.

Let's Go mark

The Let's Go mark 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 and Pokémon HOME.

Only the first 151 Pokémon, as well as the 22 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 Pokémon Sword and Shield have. Pokémon that were hatched, caught, or received as a gift in Sword and Shield or in Pokémon HOME have the Galar symbol. It is a small, black Galar League logo.

All 584 Pokémon in the Galar, Isle of Armor, and Crown Tundra Pokédexes can have the Galar symbol, including regional forms and form differences. Out of the available Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Shield outside of any of the aforementioned Pokédexes, 77 can have the Galar symbol, bringing the total to 661 Pokémon that can have this mark. This includes the Original Color Magearna, Zeraora, and Melmetal, all of which have been distributed with the Galar symbol from mystery gifts in Pokémon HOME, as well as the gift Jirachi that can be obtained in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl with save data from Sword and Shield, which, when transferred to Sword and Shield, will have the Galar symbol. Of the 664 Pokémon usable in Sword and Shield, only three of them (namely, Victini, Diancie, and Meltan) cannot have the mark, as they were never distributed with it. Kleavor can also have this mark, despite being unavailable in Pokémon Sword and Shield, due it Scyther being able to have it.

Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl mark

The Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl mark is an origin mark that Pokémon obtained in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have. It is in the shape of a triangle augmented with a circle at each of its three vertices, seemingly representing the Sinnoh region's three lakes. Because Pokémon Sword and Shield not being updated anymore, any Pokémon with this origin mark sent to these games will be displayed with Galar symbol instead.

491 of the first 493 Pokémon can have this origin mark legally. Celebi and Deoxys cannot have this origin mark. Sylveon, Mr. Rime, Kleavor, Wyrdeer, and Ursaluna can also have this mark.

Legends: Arceus mark

The Legends: Arceus mark is an origin mark that Pokémon obtained in Pokémon Legends: Arceus have. It resembles the cross-like wheel attached to Arceus. Similar to Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, any Pokémon with this origin mark sent to Pokémon Sword and Shield will be displayed with Galar symbol instead.

All 242 Pokémon in the Hisui Pokédex can have this origin mark. Mr. Rime can also have this origin mark.

No origin mark

Pokémon obtained in the Generation III, IV, and 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.

The first 649 Pokémon, Sylveon, Mr. Rime, Kleavor, Wyrdeer, and Ursaluna 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 or the battle-ready 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. Pokémon HOME brought back this functionality with the addition of filtering for Pokémon with no origin mark.

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 Morimoto while they have a Pokémon with the Game Boy mark 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.
