PurposeThe Pokemon League fulfills a number of purposes in day-to-day life. The best known function is the league's capacity as an authority on pokemon battles, and a sponsor for the various tourneys worldwide. In addition to this, the league classifies the hazards and regulations regarding the ownership of certain pokemon, supports trainers, and preserves pokemon habitats. Each region's local branch has a Pokemon League Arena, where a trainer can challenge the league's "Elite Four" and champion. How these final battles are decided is entirely up to the consensus of the league branch.
Functions / DutiesIn the eyes of the league, their first and foremost duties are to protect the habitats of pokemon, and to protect the human populace from dangerous pokemon. The latter of these duties is the origin of the Pokemon Trainer program. The former, the origin of the Pokemon Ranger program.
Pokemon Trainer ProgramThe Pokemon Trainer program originated as a means of protecting towns from dangerous pokemon attacks, and to serve as couriers between towns, as the wilderness is dangerous for unaccompanied humans to cross. Only relatively recently did supporting competitive pokemon battling become one of its functions. When a trainer registers, they receive a trainer card identifying them as an official league trainer, which has a magnetic stripe on the back that has a link to their pokemon league funds account. The league starts each trainer off with 3000 Pokedollars, which trainers can receive more of by winning competitive battles or selling goods at an official pokemart. This practice ensures superior trainers are well cared for. The possession of an amulet coin increases your league payout, the origin and reasoning behind this practice are unknown. Vs. Seekers are devices made by the Silph Company as an accessory for trainers. They send signals to other Vs. seekers to indicate a desire for a rematch. When a Vs. Seeker receives one of these signals, it prompts the user to indicate their response, and then send back the reply.
