    We had a bit of a discussion among chatbox participants about what would be suitable for people who beat Elite Fours of regions (prompted by Marc's TRPG standing).

    One idea thrown around were making the first champ the Red of the Region, while other ideas included a champions' room in which future champs could face teams that beat the E4, the current champion overthrowing the region's champion and becoming champ in place and the creation of a "Supreme Four" in which the first five region winners become a second stronger and optional elite four of sorts.

    Any ideas from the general public?

    One of the original plans we had was for the first person who won to basically become Blue from the original games. In order to truly become champion of that region, you'd then have to defeat the current champion. The difficult part there is balance; do they both have to use the teams they originally won with? If not, can they use any Pokemon or only ones they obtained in that region? We also didn't have Pummelo for a while, which made it difficult. However, I still think it could be a cool idea.

    I was a fan of the supreme four idea.

    I say upload the team into a kind of 'battle simulator' that would function like the Battleground. Trainers of a certain caliber would be able to challenge either one previous E4 champion (who would use the same team they used during their own E4 battles), or take on a mix-and-match E4 composed of four (five?) randomly chosen previous winners, either from the contestant's current region or from all E4 champions across the game.

    This would obviously let the earlier winners have a lot more clout since it takes ages to get to the E4 anyway, but still allow newer victors to be honored in the matchups, too. Possibly weight the randomized matches more toward the earlier champions, but given how long it takes to get to the E4 the original champions would probably have more 'play' to begin with.

    If somebody beats E4s across different regions, upload their teams per-region, unless they were playing R2R, which would be a separate set (since their levels are going to necessarily be higher, it wouldn't be fair to rank them together with people that started fresh into the region.)
