Why aren't you ever actually acknowledged as the Champion?

Characters will say: "Oh you beat the Champion." or whatnot in some games, but you're never referred to as the Champion. Being the recognized champion of your region would be something I would like to see at least once.

I'm pretty sure they do call you the champion

Like the Professors in some games. But the Elite Four act as if they've never seen you before and even though it's supposed to be known that a new champion has risen, trainers in the region never notice it either.

That always kind of bugged me too. You go through the entire game, collect all the gym battles, save the world from the Mafia/terrorists/PETA, defeat the elite 4 and in the end...big deal. No parade, no new title, nothing -_-

At least everyone on Join Avanue calls me CAPTAIN

Probably because adding all of the text into the game would take hours of work for a miniscule/negligible effect.

There are exception. Marshall in bw 1/2 clearly thanks the player for granting him a rematch.

Lorelei in FrLg claims that "she is back" (in reference to her absence during the post game)

Blue in the same game is happy that "you came back" when fighting his rematch team.

In BW2 the casteliacones become popular because the champion (you) like them.

I'm fairly sure that in dppt a guy in sinnoh dreams to bring the chapion to the battle zone, and upon defeating cynthia, he sails with you to the battle zone.

Scott in Emerald congratulates you for being the champion.

There actually several place after gen 1 that implies or outright aknowledge that you defeated the e4 and the champion.
