'''Seals''' (Japanese: '''シール''' ''Seal'') are small stickers introduced in [[Generation IV]] that are able tocan be attached to [[Ball Capsule]]s, which can in turn be attached to [[Poké Ball]]s, to attain a special effecteffects 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 Market in [[Sunyshore City]], where the selection changes daily. However, there are an additional 28 Seals (letters A through Z, an exclamation point and a question mark), 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.
 
Eight Seals at a time can be attached to any Ball Capsule. They can be set in==In the {{player}}'s [[PC]]. Where they are placed on the Ball Capsule will affect where the effect is displayed upon the Pokémon's release.games==

==In the anime==
The very first episode that featured the use of Seals in the Animeanime was in ''[[EP078|A Friend In Deed]]'' by [[Ritchie]], although these were just non-functioning Star Stickers that he applied directly on his [[Poké BallsBall]]s to distinguish them from the rest of the ones stolen by Team{{TRT}}, Rocket and thatsince the concept and use of Seals and [[Ball CapsulesCapsule]]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.

* A [[glitch]] on the [[Global Terminal|GTS]] allows the {{player}} to get an [[item]] called {{DL|List of dummied out items|Seal Bag}}, which holds ten Seals. Its function was superseded by the {{DL|List of key items in Generation IV|Seal Case}}.
