In addition to gathering eight Gym Badges, the [[Indigo Plateau Conference]] is known to accept Trainers passing the [[Pokémon League Admissions Exam]] and those graduating from [[Pokémon Tech]]. There are also smaller tournaments, such as the [[Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup]], where the winner gets to battle the League Champion straight away. [[Trip]] and {{OBP|Magnus|XY028}} were allowed to battle [[Alder]] and [[Diantha]], respectively, by winning such competitions.
