Galar League

The Galar League (Japanese: ガラルリーグ Galar League) is the regional Pokémon League of the Galar region. The Galar League is composed of a number of Gym Leaders as well as the Champion. Unlike the Pokémon Leagues of other regions, Pokémon Trainers in Galar must receive a letter of endorsement to participate in the Gym Challenge (Japanese: ジムチャレンジ Gym Challenge). Additionally, while the Gym Challenge comprises the traditional eight Gyms, the Galar League maintains a minor division of Gyms representing other types. Between Gym Challenges, Gyms' performance may cause them to change divisions. Trainers who earn eight Gym Badges by defeating the Gym Leaders of the major divison will qualify to participate in the annual Champion Cup (Japanese: チャンピオンカップ Champion Cup) tournament at Wyndon Stadium. This Pokémon League is known for having Dynamax in its Gym battles thanks to the League's chairman.[1]

After becoming the Champion, the player may repeatedly participate in a Champion tournament at Wyndon Stadium, which consist of three rounds in a single-elimination tournament.
