Location of Pokémon League in Sinnoh.
The Pokémon League in Diamond and Pearl

The Pokémon League (Japanese: ポケモンリーグ Pokémon League) of Sinnoh is the location of the region's Elite Four, who may only be challenged after defeating all eight Sinnoh Gym Leaders. It is located on an island north of Route 223 and west of Route 224, and it is the only place in Sinnoh that requires considerable amounts of Surfing to reach. Inside the player can challenge the Champion, after defeating the Elite Four in order.

Like in Kanto and Hoenn, reaching the Pokémon League requires first passing through Sinnoh's Victory Road (and a large waterfall) to the south of the League building. The Sinnoh League is located in a castle reminiscent of a Gothic cathedral, having a rose window and two towers at the very front of the building, characteristic of Gothic architecture.

When entering the Pokémon League building for the first time, Barry will encounter the player on the ground floor, as the player attempts to gain entry to the first challenge room.

In Pokémon Platinum, once the player deals with Charon and Team Galactic at Stark Mountain, the levels on the Elite Four's Pokémon will increase.

Geography

Ground floor

Diamond Pearl Platinum
Pokémon League lobby DP.png Pokémon League lobby Pt.png
 

The lobby of the Pokémon League consists of a large, combined Pokémon Center and Poké Mart on either side of the room. In between them is a gateway to the Elite Four, blocked by a guard who will grant access when the Trainer has earned all eight Sinnoh League Badges. Like in other Pokémon Centers throughout Sinnoh, the lobby of the Pokémon League building grants the player access to the Wireless Club and a basement where they can access Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the lobby design scheme resembles a large Pokémon Center, and has received a design update in Pokémon Platinum, with the scheme being changed to a mainly black one and the escalator to the Wi-Fi Plaza being moved nearer the one to the Wireless Club.

Between rooms

Preceding each Elite Four member's room is a blue and white hallway separated into two distinct parts by a small lift and lined with yellow and red lights. The first hallway leading to Aaron's room has a longer lift than the others, and the hallway to the Champion's room features a longer hallway after the lift.

In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, all the Elite Four rooms have white cauldron-like fixtures emitting green light in each of the corners, a Poké Ball design in the center of each room, and a floor color scheme generally matching their type theme. In Pokémon Platinum, these cauldron-like fixtures have been removed, and the rooms contain various items pertinent to each member's type theme. The Champion's room is different from the others, and is larger as well as containing a lift to the entrance of the Hall of Fame.

Main article: Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame is a dark room with a machine resembling a Pokémon Center healing machine, preceded by a vestibule lined with green lights and statues. In it, Cynthia and Professor Rowan congratulate the player on his or her entrance to the Hall of Fame.
