Game of origin is a value in the Pokémon data structure that indicates the game a Pokémon was obtained in.

In Generation III, this value occupies 4 bits of a two-byte word. From Generation IV onward, it occupies a whole byte.

Assignment

Pokémon caught in the wild, obtained as a gift or in-game trade, met in Entree Forest, or received from a Wonder Card have the game they were obtained in as their game of origin. Eggs have their game of origin set to the game in which they were obtained, not the game they were hatched. Shedinja retains the Nincada's game of origin.

Pokémon obtained from My Pokémon Ranch, Pokémon Dream Radar, Pokémon Channel, and Pokémon Link use the game they were transferred to.

Pokémon from the Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disc have Pokémon Ruby as their game of origin. The gift Ho-Oh from Mt. Battle has Pokémon Sapphire as its game of origin.
