    If you go to the summary of a POKEMON you have, there under it's picture and under it's name and level is a row of pale grey symbols - a circle, triangle, square, heart, star and diamond.

    WHAT ARE THEY FOR?! I've searched all over and can't find the answer.

    All my pokemon have these symbols and they all look the same - except for Haunter who has the star shape coloured black. Does this mean he is shiny?

    In that case what do the other symbols mean?

    Thanks!

      They're there just to mark your pokemon. It's just a little feature. Not really sure how it would be useful, but eh.

        Whenever I trade for shinies online, I find that they have a marking or two usually. Some collectors find it convenient to mark them for some sorting reason-sometimes just so they know where their shinies are.

          I normally give my Shinys a "star marking", aside from the one they already have. I find it easier to keep track of them this way. XD

            The question's been answered: they are simply just markers. In the future though, please use the Q&A thread sticky.
