The Galar region is an enigma for us all thus far, but we know that it differs from the other traditional regions. Instead of normal Gym battles and the Elite Four, the region’s Pokémon League holds tournaments to decide the next Champion. You’ll have to compete with your rivals and challenge the Gym Leaders of the region for your chance to take part in this tournament, too!
The tournament comprises of two parts – the Gym Challenge, and the Champion Cup.
The Galar Gym Challenge
The Galar Gym Challenge is a celebration of Pokémon battling! Not so different from the other regions in this aspect, the participating Trainers strive to collect all eight Gym Badges, and only Pokémon Trainers who have been endorsed by specific people, such as Gym Leaders, can join in.
The Galar Champion Cup
Once a year in the Galar region, a series of Pokémon battles are held with the League Championship on the line.
This is the Champion Cup! The Champion Cup is the tournament to decide who will be able to challenge the reigning Champion for their seat. Exemplary Trainers throughout the region, such as those who successfully complete the Gym Challenge, are allowed to participate in the Champion Cup tournament.
But participating in the tournament is not so easy. One has to receive the endorsement of specific people like Gym Leaders. (Our protagonist reportedly receives his endorsement from the Champion himself.)
Some of the corporations in Galar support the Gym Leaders and the Champion by sponsoring them. One can find the logos of these corporations all around the region.
So, what do you guys think? Are you excited about the Gym Challenge? Do let us know!
