In order to participate in regional competitions, Trainers must acquire a certain number of [[Gym]] [[Badge]]s signifying the defeat of that region's [[Gym Leader]]s, or in the case of Alola, complete the [[island challenge]].
 
In the {{pkmn|anime}}, the League Competition Committee is presided by [[Charles Goodshow]] and its functions are similar to those of the [[Pokémon Activities Committee]], which organizes [[Pokémon Contest]]s and [[Grand Festival]] tournaments for registered {{pkmn|Coordinator}}s. The Pokémon League apparently manufactures and distributes Pokémon merchandise, such as {{Ash}}'s {{DL|Ash's hat|Pokémon League Expo hat}}.

In addition to organizing competitions, the Pokémon League acts as a regulatory body for [[Pokémon Trainer's license|licensing]] Trainers and certifying [[Gym|Gyms]]. It also distributes [[Starter Pokémon]] to new Trainers via {{pkmn|Professor}}s. It can be compared to the [[Pokémon Association]] in the [[Pokémon Adventures]] manga.
 
The Pokémon League advertises with posters and manufactures at least some merchandise, including {{Ash}}'s {{DL|Ash's hat|Pokémon League Expo hat}}.

In the {{pkmn|anime}}, the Pokémon League challenge is divided into two parts: the Pokémon League Conference and the Champion League.
 
===Pokémon League Conference===
{{main|Pokémon League Conference}}
The Pokémon League Conference is a {{wp|single-elimination tournament}} between {{pkmn|Trainer}}s who have collected at least eight [[Gym]] [[Badge]]s from a specific [[region]]. Other ways of getting into the [[Indigo Plateau Conference]] besides collecting Badges have been shown, such as by passing the Pokémon League Admissions Exam, as seen in ''[[EP056|The Ultimate Test]]'', or by graduating from [[Pokémon Tech]], as seen in ''[[EP009|The School of Hard Knocks]]''.
 
Rules vary from region to region, but generally, championship competitions are divided into three parts: qualifying rounds, preliminary rounds, and final rounds. Highly skilled Trainers will move on to compete with a smaller pool of competitors. The Trainer that defeats all other competitors is deemed the winner of the competition. Losing Trainers who participate in the competition will be ranked accordingly.
