1. When you but Ball Capsules on a Pokeball, when you sent that Pokemon out, the ball capsules activate. What they do depends on the Seal. (Example: Musical seals send out musical notes, smoke seals send out a certain color smoke, confetty seals send out confetty, etc.) Then you can put that Ball Capsule on a certain Pokemon, and when they're sent out, the Seals take effect.

(Note: The Seals don't give your Pokemon any other powers or strengths, they just look cool.)

2.Ribbons are awards that you're Pokemon gets for doing certain things. (Loving you, beating the elite four, winning a Pokemon contest, etc.) You can't really use them.

1) Ball Capsules are basically stickers that you put on a Poke Ball to give it an effect when it opens. To get them you can do two things. One you can go to the solaceon Ruins and catch a bunch of Unknowns and show them to the little boy in one of the houses by the ruins.

Or you can go to Sunyshore City and go up from the Pokemon center to the large yellow building. Inside there should be a guy with glasses who sells ball capsules. He sells different ones every day. Once you get ball capsules go to your PC. Hit the ball Capsule option and decorate a Poke Ball. You can set it to one of your Pokemon and when you send it out in battle there will be some extra effects depending on what capsules you put on there, But the downside is that you can't deposit a Pokemon holding a ball capsule into the PC. You have to remove the capsule from the Pokemon. Ribbons are won n contests. The contest hall is in Hearthrome City. At the very top of city is a large dome shaped building. Pick a Pokemon that you want to enter. Before you decide go to it's summary and go to the page that shows the moves but doesn't show the PP or the type. It should have the words Cool, Beauty, Cute, Smart, or Tough where the move type should be. Make sure at least three of your moves have the same word. Then make Poffins at the Poffin House that correspond to the Color of the word. (I assume you know how to make Poffins). Feed them to your Pokemon and then enter it into the contest. If you win you will get a Ribbon.

Hope I helped.

Oh. By the way you can get Ribbons for other things other then contests. Like beating the E4, Having a high happiness or you can get a ribbon for beating the Tower Tycoon. But once you get 10+ ribbons on your Pokemon you can go to the Resort Area and enter the Building by the swimming pools. There you can buy the ultimate ribbons.

Gorgeous Ribbon- I think the cost is around 100,00

Royal Ribbon- I think the cost is around 500,000

Gorgeous Royal Ribbon- The ultimate ribbon is very expensive at 999,999. I have obtained this ribbon.

The ball Capsuls are capsules on a pokeball, that dose sertain things on a seal. Equipt them at the Pokecenter.
Ribbons are showing that the Pokemon has awards. You can't do anything with them. Hope I helped!

Ball capsules are items that you decorate with seals that you get in the game. To use ball capsules you (1.)open the ball capsules in the PC (2.)Drag and arrange the seals that you have onto the ball capsule however you like (3.)after placing the seals give the capsule to a pokemon. The next time you throw the Pokemon with the assigned capsule into battle, the seals that you placed on it will have really cool effects ^-^

You can get ribbons from winning Pokemon contest in Hearthome city and other than looking pretty cool they don't do anything

I hope I helped you :3
