What exactly is the title of Champion anyway?

Like, what kind of position is it?
Is it like a military ranking? Or maybe a political position?

I mean, it seems to be a huge deal, whatever it is. Like the Champion rules over his/her region like a king/queen.
I don't know.

Thoughts?

It's the Champion of the Elite 4. I don't see what's so difficult to understand.

That's my point.
WHAT ARE THEY THERE FOR? Why is there an "Elite Four"?

And the all mighty hero of your people which does grant you some power, well more like some very strong influence.

They exist to challenge people who want to be the very best, like no one ever was.

That's like asking "Why do boxers, fighters, mmix martial artists, wrestlers, go through a number of people before they get a chance at the belt?"

Because that's what you do to get the top spot.

Except entire regions revolve around one Champion. Last I checked, countries don't completely revolve around one pro at one sport. Not like this.

That's kind of what I always got out of it as well. They're like a highly regarded professional person of the Pokemon world. Something akin to Steve Jobs in the way that they hold a position of authority and also choose to use it in a positive way to help people.

If the world revolved around boxing, then yes, it'd be the same thing.
