Ribbon Guide (and how to access the Ribbon Syndicate)

Kqa8yT8.png

 

 

I would like to make the first guide for 2021 on an uplifting note. One way to do that is by awarding your pokemon a Ribbon. What are the names of all the Ribbons and how do you obtain them? This question has probably been asked for some time, but now it is time to answer this question. Without further ado, let's get started!

Champion Ribbon = A Ribbon that will be obtained if you win the Elite Four with this pokemon in your party (this can be any Elite Four area and it can even be obtained in a classic story run).

Winning Ribbon = A Ribbon Awarded for clearing the Battle Tower's Level 50 challenge (The pokemon will scale down to 50 if they are leveled a bit above).

Victory Ribbon = A Ribbon Awarded for clearing the Battle Tower's Level 100 challenge (Make sure your pokemon are level 100 prior to entry).

Effort Ribbon = A Ribbon Awarded for maximizing your pokemon's EVs to 510. You can either obtain the Ribbon at Slateport City's Market or at Sunyshore City's Market. (Make sure that the pokemon recieving the Ribbon is in the lead slot prior to interacting with the Ribbon Merchant).

The Cool, Beauty, Cute, Smart, and Tough Ribbons can be obtained from winning Contests at the Contest Hall in Lilycove City which is in Hoenn.

There are a total of 4 levels of difficulty for each rank. If you are going to do the contests, then it would be helpful to look at the Gauges for each stat (feed the necessary PokeBlocks to the pokemon you want to win the contest with). The pokemon summary should give you this information:

Basic PokeBlock Key (The Plus Version is faster):

Red PokeBlock = Coolness

Blue PokeBlock = Beauty

Pink PokeBlock = Cuteness

Green PokeBlock = Smartness

Yellow PokeBlock = Toughness

 

How each PokeBlock can be made: Red = Cheri Berry; Blue = Chesto Berry; Pink = Pecha Berry; Green = Rawst Berry; Yellow = Aspear Berry

 

If you maximize the berry slots with four of the same berries as mentioned above, then you will obtain the Plus Version of a PokeBlock. PokeBlocks are located in the Berry Section of your Bag's Inventory.

As for the gatekeeper at the Ribbon Syndicate, she will not move until you have at least 24 Ribbons on your leading pokemon. She will then move out the way for you to access the remaining 3 ribbons once that requirement has been met.

Great! I do not know, I think there is no other guide of this type, in any case, let me tell you something, I think that having all the tapes is very good shows the time you spend on the game, personally I would also get all The tapes to be able to access that place, I want to have access to all possible places, for this reason I completed the pokedex in Sinnoh to be able to access certain places. Although I value things that many do not give because they seem insignificant, I would obtain all the medals in each of my pokes, although the latter, from what I have seen, players only dedicate themselves to obtaining the medals when they are shiny pokes. and with good statistics. Anyway, good job, I'm sure I will visit this guide many times, but I have a question, is there a guide in the forum about "combat" in contests, that is, about what each movement does, say, how many hearts goes up, between other things?

On one occasion I suggested to someone who also likes to have his pokes with medals to make one but we both knew that few players are dedicated to obtaining the medals and he did not.

I apologize if there is any mistake in the English translation

That is a good question, there are certain move combos that work well with contents. It should be noted that IVs and EVs have no effect on the overall performance in contests.

 

Also it should be noted that:

 

Coolness-Can also use tough and beauty moves without receiving a penalty.

 

Tough-Can also use cool and smart moves without receiving a penalty.

 

Beauty-Can use cool and cute moves without receiving a penalty.

 

Smart-Can use tough and cute moves without receiving a penalty.

 

Cute-Can use beauty and smart moves without receiving a penalty.

 

For combination info, you can check out Bubapedia's move combos for each contest type.

Nice guide! I have a correction: you do not need 24 ribbons to enter the Syndicate. I was allowed in with only 17 ribbons. In the original DS games, only 10 ribbons are required, so I assume that is the case here too.

Got inside Ribbon Syndicate with 11 contest ribbons and the effort one.

I got 13 ribbons and still couldnt enter.

For safe measure, I bumped the number from 10 to 24 (the maximum number of ribbons before the Gorgeous Ribbon, Royal Ribbon, and Gorgeous Royal Ribbon). Thank you for your feedback.

I though they were joking, you actually wrote the guide for a lot of things. I wanted to use these to get some ribbons for our Espeon. She has like 7 ribbons so far.
