The '''Elite Four''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|四天王|してんのう}}''' ''The Big Four'', lit. ''{{wp|Four Heavenly Kings}}'') are four [[Pokémon Trainer]]s who are regarded as the toughest in their [[region]]al [[Pokémon League]], just short of the [[Pokémon Champion|Pokémon League Champion]]. Those who challenge the Elite Four must have won all eight [[Badge]]s from that region (or, for Trainers in [[Alola]], must have completed all of their [[island challenge]] trials). To become Champion, Trainers must face all four and the current Champion consecutively without losing to any of them.
One group resides at the [[Indigo Plateau]] in [[Kanto]] and are considered the best Trainers in both Kanto and [[Johto]]. Another group is located in [[Ever Grande City]] in [[Hoenn]], while another is located on [[Mount Lanakila]] in [[Alola]]. Three more groups reside at the Pokémon Leagues in {{si|Pokémon League|Sinnoh}}, {{un|Pokémon League|Unova}}, and {{kal|Pokémon League|Kalos}}.
