The Elite Four (Japanese: 四天王 Shitennō, lit. Four Heavenly Kings or Big Four) are four Pokémon Trainers who are regarded as the toughest in their regional Pokémon League, short of League Champion. Those who challenge the Elite Four must have achieved all eight Badges from that region and face all four of them and the current Champion consecutively without losing to either of them. One group resides on Indigo Plateau in Kanto, and are considered the best trainers in both Kanto and Johto; another is in Ever Grande City in Hoenn; and the last known one is in the unnamed Pokémon League in Sinnoh.
