Pokémon Platinum Seal Case: Location + Uses

The Seal Woman's house in Pokémon Platinum

You can get the Seal Case from a woman in a house on the eastern outskirts of Solaceon Town. You don’t need to do anything special to get the Seal Case—just speak with her and she’ll give you one for free.

The earliest point that you can obtain the Seal Case is just after defeating Leader Fantina at the Hearthome City Gym.

Where To Find the Seal Case Woman

After winning the Relic Badge from Leader Fantina, the next leg of your journey takes you through Solaceon Town.

On the eastern side of town is a heavily-wooded area. There are a couple of houses hidden in the forest here, and it’s in one of these homes that you’ll find the woman who provides the Seal Case.

To reach the Seal Woman’s home, start by heading north from Solaceon Town’s Pokémon Center.

She will also give you an assortment of five randomly-chosen Seals.

Note that you can also speak with her son on the opposite side of the table to earn more Seals. You’ll do that showing him various forms of Unown caught from the Solaceon Ruins.

Seal Case Details and Uses

The Seal Case is used to store Seals, which are special stickers that create visual effects in battle when affixed to a Pokémon’s Poké Ball using a Ball Capsule.

While the Seal Case isn’t a necessary item, you won’t be able to collect any Seals if you don’t have one.

The Seal Case can store 99 copies of each of the game’s 77 total Seals. You can check how many total Seals you have by opening the Seal Case from your Bag’s Key Items pocket and selecting Use.

How To Apply Seals to a Poké Ball

You will need to use a PC to actually affix the Seals to Ball Capsules. Any Pokémon Center PC will do.

First, boot up the computer and select your trainer PC.
