The Elite Four are four Pokémon Trainers who are regarded as the toughest in their regional Pokémon League, short of the Pokémon League Champion. Those who challenge the Elite Four must have won all eight Badges from that region and face all four and the current Champion consecutively without losing to any of them.
The Elite Four reside at Indigo Plateau in the area between Johto and Kanto.

In the three years since Red became Champion, 3 members retired or were promoted. Lance, the former Elite Four Number 4, currently is the acting champion of both Johto and Kanto. Lorelei retired after an incident with Team Rocket on her home of Four Island led her to prioritize her home's safety. Agatha retired due to her old age. It is implied that the retiring members were each given a Master Ball.
