Anyone notice the pentagon in the "shiny" spot?

It appears on all of the starters' pages.
I have a few thoughts

One thought is that it's connected to the form of the pokemon. The starters don't have different forms (most likely), so they get a pentagon. However, there might be pokemon like gastrodon where one region has one form and another has a different form. Any pokemon with only 1 form might have a pentagon, while other options might have icons like the pokedex icons:

That is, different parts of a pentagon.

Another thought is that it just indicates where it was found, with a gift being a pentagon and anything else being the part of Kalos where it was caught.

Anyone else have any thoughts?
Or is it something already in the game that I completely forgot about?

it's a star.

maybe Pokemon caught from Kalos have this as their mark automatically.

I thought I saw a Chespin with a filled-in white triangle (i.e. Central Kalos) but I'll have to look for it...

Rotom would have five parts of a pentagon. Mewtwo two, and so on.

...
What are you talking about? The sixth symbol on that image is a star. It's not highlighted. The pentagon is highlighted.

Are you confusing pentagram and pentagon or something? Did you even go to the link?

The pentagon will signify where that Pokemon was caught in the Kalos region. The starters presumably can't be caught, so the pentagon is filled in completely.

If the Pokemon is caught is Coastal Kalos, the left will be shaded in, the center for Central Kalos, and the right for Mountain Kalos.
