    Seals were an aesthetic addition to DPPt and allowed you to change the design of your Poké Ball when it released a Pokémon. These designs ranged from flames and lightning bolts to your choice of letters or text.

    Did you use seals? What did you think of them? Do you want them brought back in future games?

    I skipped that gen so I've never had the chance to use it and I hope that they bring it back so that I can see the appeal of it, tbh

    I used them in SS, which I guess was linked to that generation. I thought it was neat, and I enjoyed seeing all the possible patterns I could make with them. I wish they'd bring them back, like what they did with the partner Pokémon beside/behind/in front of you.

    Ball seals were fun to play around with! I've always loved the flower ones but the bubbles were awesome to look at too. I don't appreciate them as much now, but the younger me was definitely fascinated with them. I'd love to see them back in future generations, fully animated in 3D. More variety would work too! I'd love to see the ball seals from the anime, especially the one that Dawn uses for Togekiss (which was a crown, if I remember correctly?)

    I remember messing a lot with that post game in DPPt, getting all the seals and making a ton of combos. My favorite one was a thunder cloud that had lightning bolts coming out of it.

    These should def come back in a Gen 4 remake or it wouldn't be quite the game even if they have no real function aside from looking neat.

    I absolutely loved seals, I would spend hours switching them around, trying them out in battles, then change it again.

    The seals were a great way to tweak the Pokéball, but I usually ended up taking them off due to a mechanic I don't quite remember. I still liked them, /and would love to see them return in the future.

    I vaguely remember these... I think I played around with them a lot. I want them back in future games because they seem like a good idea.

    I was so inspired by the contests in the anime where Dawn sent out her Pokémon with huge, bubbly hearts that there was no way I could pass up on seals. I spent a lot of time playing around with them to get the effects I wanted! I remember being kind of disappointed at how they didn’t look like they were from the anime, but it was enough to keep me entertained.

    I liked them as a small aesthetic feature. They were a fun way to liven the entrance of a battle. I would defiantly want to see them come back in future generations, but more as a side feature. Kind of like how their doing cloths now, buy them in shops and put them on when you feel like it.

    I used seal at one point and I did love them. If they do gen 4 remakes, this is a feature that NEEDS to come back. They were awesome in my opinion and if I ever replay gen 4 I plan to use them.

    Oh I've used these a ton, I remember really liking messing around with them :3 I do remember there being a little bit of hassle involved with equiping and dequiping them, but that might have been my kid self being dumb xD

    Seals were pretty cool. There was this one that looked like dark purple rose petals that I would use for my Lumineon. I thought they were a good idea, but having to switch out the capsules before being able to store a Pokémon in the PC was a pain, and they became pretty much useless in HGSS since you don't let the Pokémon that walks with you out of its ball when a battle starts. I'd like to see it again, but only if there were improvements in how they worked.

    I loved seals, I once got all 28 Unown in platinum to get all the letter seals. :'o
    I'd love to see them return, but they were removed for a good reason- people would use letter seals (as well as Chatot's Chatter, which was altered the next generation) to send foul language to others.
    I never had online connect back then, but if I did I probably would have added onto the problem as I do remember once having a seal that read F***!!! :x

    I usually did really cute ones, though. Such as hearts and flower petals. I got rid of that seal after a day, I think.

    i loved the seals when i used them, just having them back would make pretending to be showcase performer in Pokémon games even more fun!
