'''Seals''' (Japanese: '''シール''' ''Seal'') are small stickers introduced 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.

In {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, a majority of Seals can be purchased at the [[Sunyshore Market|Market]] in [[Sunyshore City]], where the selection changes daily. There are also 28 Seals (letters A through Z, an exclamation point and a 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]]. Once a Seal is bought, it cannot be sold or thrown away legitimately.

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.

==In the anime==
The very first episode that featured the use of Seals in the anime was ''[[EP078|A Friend In Deed]]'' by [[Ritchie]], although these were just non-functioning Star Stickers that he applied directly on his [[Poké Ball]]s to distinguish them from the rest of the ones stolen by {{TRT}}, since the concept and use of Seals and [[Ball Capsule]]s did not exist (outside of [[Sinnoh]]) at the time. Seals are commonly used in [[Pokémon Contest]]s. These make the entrance of the Pokémon more attractive and may sometimes affect the score given to them. A few Seals are supplied when a [[Pokémon Coordinator]] receives a Seal Case, but the majority is bought at shops and markets.

  +
[[File:Dawn buying Seals.png|thumb|left|220px|Dawn buying Seals]]
  +
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.

In the anime

Ambipom sent out with a Party Seal
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.

Gallery

All of the ten types of Seals sold at the Sunyshore Market in the games were featured over the course of the Diamond & Pearl series. For a collection of images showing Seals and their effects in the anime, please see Seals on the Bulbagarden Archives.

Alphabet Seals in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Knowledge of the Unown I, Platinum received a few Seals and a Ball Capsule as thanks for giving the Pokémon News Press information on Unown. The Seals proved to be helpful in the Solaceon Ruins where Platinum, Diamond, and Pearl ended up trapped in the dark while helping two Unown reunite with their friends. She accidentally dropped her Prinplup's Poké Ball and the light emanated by the Seal's effect allowed the group to find the trapped Unown.
