If you were looking for the first season of the Pokémon anime, see Pokémon: Indigo League.

The Indigo League (Japanese: セキエイリーグ Sekiei League) is the regional Pokémon League of the Kanto region. It consists of a network of eight Gyms (in the games; however, there are more in the anime) and the Elite Four. Depending on the context, the Indigo League can also be called the Kanto League or simply the Pokémon League.

Pokémon Trainers who earn eight Gym Badges from sanctioned Indigo League Gyms qualify to participate in Indigo League competitions, one of which is the Indigo Plateau Conference.

The Johto League and Indigo League share a single group of Elite Four and Champion; eight Badges from either region will allow a Trainer to battle the Elite Four at Indigo Plateau.

In the anime

Additional badges have been seen in the anime. Gary Oak, Otoshi and an unknown Trainer have all displayed badges that have not been present in the games. In The Scheme Team, Agatha was seen serving as a temporary Ghost-type Gym Leader following Giovanni's absence. Other ways of getting into the Indigo League besides collecting badges have been shown; such as by passing the Pokémon League Admissions Exam, as seen in The Ultimate Test, or by graduating from Pokémon Tech, as seen in The School of Hard Knocks.
