The '''Pokémon League Admissions Exam''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンけんていしけん''' ''Pokémon Certification Test'') is an exam given by the Pokémon League Admissions Center in the [[Kanto]] [[region]]. It provides [[Pokémon Trainer]]s with an alternative way to enter the [[Indigo Plateau Conference]], one that does not require going on a {{pkmn|journey}} to collect [[Gym]] [[Badge]]s. It was featured in ''[[EP056|The Ultimate Test]]''.
The first test measures a Trainer's overall knowledge of {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} and consists of true-or-false questions that applicants must answer on a computer. The second test measures a Trainer's ability to recognize Pokémon by asking applicants to identify a given species based on the Pokémon's silhouette or part of its body displayed on a screen.
During the third and final test, applicants are asked to select a belt with three [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}}s attached to it before facing one of the instructors in three consecutive {{pkmn|battle}}s. Trainers are not permitted to use the Pokémon in their [[party|team]] and instead have to use [[rental Pokémon]] contained within the three loaned Poké Balls. The reason behind this is to determine whether a Trainer can adapt regardless of the Pokémon he or she is using. All the rental Pokémon are raised to [[Obedience|obey]] an applicant's commands.
All those who pass receive a unique Badge that qualifies them for Kanto's [[Pokémon League Conference]].
