In the games
In {{2v2|Black|White}}, Cynthia tells the player that once every few years, the Champions from all the regions come together and battle to find the strongest among them. In the [[Pokémon World Tournament]] in {{2v2|Black|White|2}}, which takes place 2 years later, all the Champions the player battles in previous games participate in the [[Champions Tournament]]. This tournament does not include player characters, with the exception of {{ga|Red}}.
 
In {{pkmn|Sun and Moon|Sun, Moon}}, {{pkmn|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon}}, the {{al|Pokémon League}} of [[Alola]], having just been established, has no Champion. Instead, [[Professor Kukui]] (the league's founder){{sup/7|SM}} or [[Hau]] (the player's rival){{sup/7|USUM}}, stands in as the final obstacle the player must overcome before becoming the league's first Champion. In another first for the series, the player can [[Pokémon League (Alola)/Title Defense|defend their title]] against challenges from non-player characters. The player keeps the nominal title of Champion even if defeated. Similarly, in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], {{ga|Trace}} is the Champion of the Indigo Leauge at first, but loses his title to the player. In after defeating Lance in a [[rematch]], Trace will challenge the player as a normal Pokémon Trainer in an attempt to retake the title.
