A Champion (Japanese: チャンピオン Champion) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. It is the name given for the Trainer who last defeated the Elite Four and the previous Pokémon champion.

Although the player character is always introduced to the Champion before challenging the Elite Four, there is often nothing to suggest their status, so it is often a "surprise" to find out that that person is the Champion.

After becoming Champion, the player returns home, rather than staying at the Pokémon League to fight challengers. The previous Champion keeps his/her position. This may be a decision of the player character and his/her family rather than official Pokémon League rules, as Champion Blue also keeps his position.
