'''Seals''' are small stickers that are able to be attached to [[Ball Capsule]]s, which can in turn be attached to [[Poké Ball]]s, to attain a special effect when a [[Pokémon]] comes out of them, instead of the usual flash of light. The majority of them can be purchased in the Sunyshore Market in [[Sunyshore City]], where the selection changes daily, though there are 28 seals of letters A through Z and the exclamation point and question mark, obtained by showing {{p|Unown}} to a boy in [[Solaceon Town]].

'''Seals''' (Japanese: '''シール''' ''Seal'') are small stickers in [[Generation IV]] that can be attached to [[Ball Capsule]]s, which can in turn be attached to [[Poké Ball]]s, to attain special effects when a {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} comes out of them, instead of the usual flash of light. They are kept in a [[Seal Case]].
   
Eight seals at a time can be attached to any Ball Capsule. They can be set on the [[player character|player's]] [[PC]]. Where they are placed on the Ball Capsule will affect where the effect is displayed upon the Pokémon's release.
+
==In the games==
  +
In {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, a majority of Seals can be purchased at the [[Sunyshore Market]], where the selection changes daily. There are also 28 Seals (the {{wp|ISO basic Latin alphabet|26 letters of the Latin alphabet}}, an {{wp|exclamation mark}}, and a {{wp|question mark}}) that can be obtained by showing {{p|Unown}} to a boy in [[Solaceon Town]]. This can be repeated as often as needed – a new Unown is not needed each time. In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, three Seals can be acquired each day from a girl in [[Olivine City]].
   
==Sunyshore Market seals==
+
Once a Seal is acquired, it cannot be sold or thrown away legitimately. The [[Seal Case]] can store a maximum of 99 of each Seal, including those Seals that are applied to a Ball Capsule.

Eight Seals at a time can be attached to any [[Ball Capsule]]. They can be set in the {{player}}'s [[PC]]. Where they are placed on the Ball Capsule affects where the effect is displayed when the Pokémon is sent out.
  +
  +
Like Ball Capsules, Seals were removed in [[Generation V]].

===Sunyshore Market Seals===
  +
These Seals can be purchased at the [[Sunyshore Market|market]] in [[Sunyshore City]].

In the [[Pokémon anime]], Seals were featured for the first time in ''[[DP011|Mounting a Coordinator Assault!]]''. In this [[canon]], Seals are commonly used during [[Pokémon Contest]]s in the [[Sinnoh]] [[region]]. In contrast with the {{pkmn|games}}, where multiple Seals at a time can be attached to a [[Ball Capsule]], only one Seal is used per Ball Capsule in the anime.
  +
  +
[[Pokémon Coordinator]]s use Seals to make the entrance of their {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} more attractive, since it is important to leave an impression when the Pokémon is sent out of its [[Poké Ball]]. Additionally, the use of Seals is often commented on by the [[Contest Judge]]s, as they start forming opinions from the very beginning of a [[Appeal|performance]] or [[Contest Battle|battle]].
  +
  +
A few Seals are supplied when a Coordinator registers for a [[Contest Pass]], and additional Seals can be bought at shops or markets. In ''[[DP113|Hold the Phione!]]'', {{an|Dawn}} was seen buying new Seals for {{cat|Dawn's Pokémon|her Pokémon}} at a [[Poké Mart]] in [[Chocovine Town]].

If you were looking for the move with the Japanese name Seal, see Imprison (move). For the Pokémon based on the animal seal, see Seel (Pokémon).

A Seal on a Ball Capsule

Seals (Japanese: シール Seal) are small stickers in Generation IV that can be attached to Ball Capsules, which can in turn be attached to Poké Balls, to attain special effects when a Pokémon comes out of them, instead of the usual flash of light. They are kept in a Seal Case.

In the games

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, a majority of Seals can be purchased at the Sunyshore Market, where the selection changes daily. There are also 28 Seals (the 26 letters of the Latin alphabet, an exclamation mark, and a question mark) that can be obtained by showing Unown to a boy in Solaceon Town. This can be repeated as often as needed – a new Unown is not needed each time. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, three Seals can be acquired each day from a girl in Olivine City.

Once a Seal is acquired, it cannot be sold or thrown away legitimately. The Seal Case can store a maximum of 99 of each Seal, including those Seals that are applied to a Ball Capsule.

Eight Seals at a time can be attached to any Ball Capsule. They can be set in the player's PC. Where they are placed on the Ball Capsule affects where the effect is displayed when the Pokémon is sent out.

Like Ball Capsules, Seals were removed in Generation V.

Sunyshore Market Seals

These Seals can be purchased at the market in Sunyshore City.

Dawn buying Seals

In the Pokémon anime, Seals were featured for the first time in Mounting a Coordinator Assault!. In this canon, Seals are commonly used during Pokémon Contests in the Sinnoh region. In contrast with the games, where multiple Seals at a time can be attached to a Ball Capsule, only one Seal is used per Ball Capsule in the anime.

Pokémon Coordinators use Seals to make the entrance of their Pokémon more attractive, since it is important to leave an impression when the Pokémon is sent out of its Poké Ball. Additionally, the use of Seals is often commented on by the Contest Judges, as they start forming opinions from the very beginning of a performance or battle.

A few Seals are supplied when a Coordinator registers for a Contest Pass, and additional Seals can be bought at shops or markets. In Hold the Phione!, Dawn was seen buying new Seals for her Pokémon at a Poké Mart in Chocovine Town.
