Reason: More biographical info.

Leon originally started as a Trainer at the age of 10 with his partner Charizard when he entered the Gym Challenge after being endorsed by Chairman Rose, who saw talent in him.[1] He proceed to win his first-ever Gym Challenge and become the Champion of the Galar League, without losing a single battle. Since then, he and his partner have remained undefeated in every League and exhibition they participated in. He has been referred to as "the unbeatable Champion" and "the greatest Trainer in all of Galar."[2] He is considered a hero to many Trainers in Galar. However, he is also known for his poor sense of directions. His catchphrase is "Let's have a champion time!". According to Mustard, Leon was once his best student at the Master Dojo, but he was never able to finish his training there, as he never made it to the Towers of Two Fists due to his horrible sense of direction.

Leon first appears in the games' introduction movie, where he is introduced as Galar's undefeated Champion by Chairman Rose at Wyndon Stadium. He exchanges greetings with his opponent Raihan, who is challenging him with Duraludon, before Gigantamaxing his Charizard. Their subsequent battle is not shown on-screen, but Leon defeats Raihan to retain his title.

Later, Leon travels via train to Wedgehurst, where he entertains a crowd outside Wedgehurst Station with Charizard until Hop and the player meet him. Together, the trio return to Hop and Leon's home in Postwick. Once there, Leon reveals the gifts he brought for Hop and the player — the starter Pokémon Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble. He allows the player and Hop to choose which of the three Pokémon they want, then adds the remaining Pokémon to his own party. Leon then watches the battle between the player and Hop before joining in a barbecue dinner he and Hop's mother hosts at their home.

After the events of main story, he gained ownership of Rose Tower and transformed it into the Battle Tower. His reason for this was to fulfill a lifelong dream he had while he was still Champion, where Galarian Trainers can become the strongest in the world. Another reason behind his ownership of the Battle Tower was so that he can never get lost inside it. Some say Leon has become more lively than when he was Champion and is currently having a hard time looking for a new catchphrase to use.

In the English versions of the games, Hop refers to Leon by the nickname Lee. In all other languages, he is merely referred to as "older brother" or "brother".

League Cards

This is a transcript of the back of Leon's League Cards in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Normal League Card
"Leon is known far and wide for taking part in the Gym Challenge at the tender age of 10 years old—and even more so for claiming victory in the Champion Cup on his first attempt. Ever since that victory, he and his partner Charizard have remained unbeaten in both League and exhibition matches. He is called "the unbeatable Champion" and is a hero to many Trainers. He has but one weakness: a dismal sense of direction. But don't worry—wherever he ends up, he makes sure everyone has a champion time!"
Rare League Card
"Leon's dream, even when he was still the Champion, was to make Galarian Trainers the strongest Trainers in the world. In order to fulfill that dream, he has rebuilt Rose Tower into the Battle Tower, a facility dedicated to Pokémon battles. People say that he seems even more lively now than he was as Champion. Leon has also commented that another reason he likes the tower so much is that it's impossible to get lost inside. Leon's biggest problem now is coming up with a new signature catchphrase to replace "Let's have a champion time!""
