Special effects coming out of pokéballs?

I used to have pokémon platnium in japanese. I couldnt understand the game (i didnt speak japanese), but after experimenting with buttons I was able to progress about halfway through the game. There was one thing I was able to do that I couldnt find online: make a special effect happen when I threw out a pokéball. For example, stars, hearts, spirals, etc. It seemed to happen everytime I selected a button on the pc and chose a Pokemon. My game wasnt on a real platnium cartilage, it was included with a dozen other games on one disk (all games from different franchises and in different lagnguages), so I'm wondering if it was hacked. I never played the game in english, so I wouldnt know. I do not have the game anymore, and I would like to know more about this effect (if it is normal) and if it appears in other games. If it is completely normal, I would like to know what its called and more about it.

In Gen IV and in the Sinnoh region, you are able to equip seals to Pokéballs. These seals gave out an effect when a Pokemon was relevant out in battle. They have no battle effects. They are purely Aesthetic.
