Pokémon League Conference

6 bytes added, 27 May
The general structure of most League Conferences is similar: [[Pokémon Trainer]]s must register for the region's [[Pokémon League]], something which they can do at seemingly any [[Pokémon Center]] or with a [[Pokémon Professor]], and then must win at least eight of the region's [[Gym]] [[Badge]]s in order to be able to register for the competition. In addition to this method, the [[Indigo Plateau Conference]] is known to accept entrants who have passed the [[Pokémon League Admissions Exam]] or graduated from [[Pokémon Tech]].
The tournament competition itself has an opening and closing ceremony. In some regions, there is a torch with the flame of {{p|Moltres}} or {{p|Ho-Oh}} that burns duringfor the entireduration of the tournament, a reference to the [[Pokémon world in relation to the real world|real world's]]'s {{wp|Olympic Games}}.
The day after the ceremonial torch has been lit, in some of the regional Leagues the qualifying rounds begin so as to weed out Trainers who have gotten the required eight Badges, but are not yet skilled enough to continue, and those who survive move on to the preliminary rounds. In other regional Leagues, instead, the preliminary rounds will begin right away, and will continue for several days until the top sixteen Trainers have been decided. At this point, there is a short break in the competition so that the Trainers and their Pokémon may rest, followed by the start of the final rounds.
