A Pokémon Champion is a trainer who has beaten a region's Gym Leaders, Elite Four, and the previous Champion. By being the Pokémon Champion, you can become the most famous face in trainer history. The known Champions are Blue, Lance, Steven, Wallace, Cynthia, Alder, and Iris. They all have the most powerful team of that particular region pre-Hall of Fame. Being a Champion may also be the starting point to becoming a Pokémon Master. Pokémon Champions have strong Pokémon and are stronger than most trainers and Gym Leaders. Once you defeat the Champion, you are recognized as the champion, although in the games the player declines the position and allows the previous Champion to reclaim their spot.
