The Kanto Gym Badges.

Gym Badges (ジムバッジ Jimu Bajji) are essential items collected throughout all the regions in the main series Pokémon games and the Pokémon Anime. Badges are usually obtained by defeating a Gym Leader in a Pokémon battle. After collecting 8 Gym Badges in a certain region, a trainer may compete in the Pokémon League. In the game series, the player may collect 8 badges per region. However, in the anime, other Gyms exist where trainers can collect badges.

Some Gym Badges can affect a Pokémon's behavior, making them obedient up to certain levels, though this is only in Generations previous to IV. Also, certain badges will allow for a specified HM to be used outside of battle. Additionally, in the Generation IV and Generation V games, having more badges affects the number of items that Poké Marts will have.

Game Freak made a special effect with the Gym Badges in X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire wherein X and Y, when the sprite screen is on the system's screen, the gym badge's silhouette is seen in the distance. When the Gym Leader fades out of the screen to throw his Poké Ball, the silhouette quickly flutters away.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the effect was changed to when the sprite screen is on the system's screen, the badge flutters slowly. When the Gym Leader fades out to throw his Poké Ball, the badge keeps fluttering and does not flutter away. When the Poké Ball reaches the bottom of the screen, the silhouette fades away.
