In the anime
In the {{pkmn|anime}}, the Pokémon League challenge is divided into two parts: the Pokémon League Conference and the Champion League. In addition to organizing competitions, the Pokémon League acts as a regulatory body which [[Pokémon Trainer's license|licenses]] {{pkmn|Trainer}}s and {{pkmn|Inspection Agency|certifies}} [[Gym]]s. 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 manufacturesdistributes at least some merchandise, including {{Ash}}'s {{DL|Ash's hat|Pokémon League Expo hat}}. Battles are broadcast on [[television]].
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.
