Strive to Become the Next Champion of the Galar Region!
Here in the Galar region, where Pokémon battles are big entertainment, the region's Pokémon League holds tournaments to decide the next Champion. You'll have to compete with your rivals and challenge the Gym Leaders of the region for your chance to take part in this tournament, too!
Leon won the Championship in his first-ever Gym Challenge—without being defeated in battle a single time. To this day, his winning streak continues to grow ever longer, and his formidable talent for Pokémon battles is truly unmatched. He's aided in his countless victories by his partner Charizard, and he's known to go all out during battles, no matter who he's facing. This battle style of his has captured the hearts of the people of Galar.
You can try to catch a glimpse of this battle skill during broadcasts of his Championship and exhibition matches!
The Champion Cup
Once a year in the Galar region, a series of Pokémon battles are held with the League Championship on the line. This is the Champion Cup! The Champion Cup is the tournament to decide who will be able to challenge the reigning Champion for their seat. Exemplary Trainers throughout the region, such as those who successfully complete the Gym Challenge, are allowed to participate in the Champion Cup tournament.
The Champion Cup battles are broadcast on TV, and all the people of the Galar region will be watching!
About the Pokédex and Rotom Phone
Any Pokémon that you find or catch during your adventure will have its information registered in the Pokédex. The Pokédex in these titles will actually be part of your Rotom Phone! Your Rotom Phone is also home to Rotom, a Pokémon that can enter into various electric appliances. And your Rotom Phone can do a lot more than serve as a Pokédex!
For example, you can attach it to your bike to make it move faster on land, or it can even help you travel over water!
