Unlike Ribbons, you unlock Marks through capturing wild Pokemon. Like Ribbons, however, Marks that you give to Pokemon award them with unique titles. A Pokemon you catch in the morning, for example, could come with a Dawn Mark, which will award it with “the Early Riser” as a title. Just as with Ribbons, these titles will be shown whenever you throw that Pokemon into battle. You and your opponent will see “Go! Grubbin the Early Riser!” with the Dawn Mark equipped, for example.

ALSO: Does Pokemon Sword and Shield have multiple save slots?

Once you have unlocked a Mark, you can equip it via the Pokemon menu when you pause the game. It works in the same way as to equip Ribbons, and Marks will even be found in the same section of the menu. Simply pause the game, head into the Pokemon menu, choose Pokemon Summary, and head to the Ribbons section (under the Ribbon icon). Equip your chosen Mark from there. Read on for the complete list of Pokemon Sword and Shield Marks.
