Pokemon Summary Question


#1

Hello all, and thank you in advance.
I wasn’t sure where to post this, so I’m just putting it in General Discussion. If there is a better location, please let me know.

I was looking through my pokemon and noticed this Onix had a ribbon indicating when it was caught. I recieved this pokemon in a trade, and the ribbon is definitely the caught date. I have no idea what this ribbon actually means and was wondering if anyone here did.

Everything caught until 1/1/18 has it, nobody knows why

Niantic added the tag so people could easily see their older Pokémon during trading, that way you didn’t accidentally dump an old Pokémon you wouldn’t trade if you realized the catch date
