"It is assumed that the Champion must defend their title against challengers, although this is never explicitly stated."

What about when you fight Blue in R/B. They say he's the champion, then you have to fight him to become champion, you beat him and oh noes he is no longer the top-dog. That looks to me like a title defence. - Ferret 03:39, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

As someone else noted in another article - the problem with that is FireRed and LeafGreen alone - where when you fight the Elite Four the second time (and in terms of the story - they recognize it's the second time, too) and Blue is the champion agian. - Zeta

That is a problem. But to me that would say that in the game, that it's possible to have more than one champion at the same time, no? Or maybe Game Freak just screwed up. Maybe the translators screwed up, does the original Japanese version share the same not-champion, now-chamption mixup? - Ferret 03:56, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

What I don't understand is why, in the games, the main goals are: catch all Pokémon, and BECOME THE CHAMPION. Yet when you beat the Elite Four/Champion, you can go back and re-chalenge the Champion, even though the game says you are the Champ, and the Champion has the same speech and is called "Champion *blank*". It is a HUGE loophole in the games. Why not retire the old Champ or have them say that you are the Champ now in their pre-battle speech? GuyNamedSean 02:29, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Sometimes things that should happen don't, because it's a game. It's better if there's a always high-level opponent that you can challenge at any time. Because of that, they're not going to retire the game champ. But not changing the speech? Yeah, that's laziness. Apparently you're supposed to make the assumption that the game champion immediately sweeps the Elite Four again once you leave?--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 04:13, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Obvious rename

Let's rename this to "Pokémon League Champion"; "Pokémon champion" sounds like it is describing someone who is a champion at something else, like contests or Battle Tower. In other words, Pokémon League Champion=moreo specifico. PH1RESTRIKE 02:11, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Sprite

Should we have a section regarding the sprites of the Champions? ht14 23:23, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

That's on the article for the Champion trainer class. —darklordtrom 23:24, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

to merge

I vote for merging--Branfili 04:51, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Red

Wasn't he explicitly stated as a champion? He took Blue out of his role and became champion for a period. Shouldn't he be stated, for the games? Lovely Rose 17:33, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
