@Light-Called-Hope: It pays well, though.

@Light-Called-Hope: Or ever. It was only ever like, you and the rival who ever collected badges in the first place.

@1ce_k1d: Yeah but what are you going to do with money when you're trapped in that room for all eternity?

@Light-Called-Hope: In other games champions are seen outside of that room, so I guess they are notified when someone gets their final badge so that they know to go to the room.

Though when you become champion you can loaf about and never have to stay in the room.

I haven't played through Blue/Red/Green/Yellow so I don't know how it works there, but in other games after you defeat the champion and rematch the Elite 4, they are still there even though you're technically the champion.

@SassyThePokemonLover: Yep, that's how it is in Gen I, too.

@Surfersquid: Ah, thank you for that clarification. :)

I never understood why the original Champions still have their positions, even after being defeated. Or is this just in the newer gens?

@Light-Called-Hope: You, my good sir (or madam) have a VERY good point!

Well, after you beat him (nearly-two-decade-old-spoiler-alert incoming), one of the first things (the non-insane version of) Oak says is that by the time he heard that your rival was Champion and managed to get up there, he'd already lost. Also keep in mind that you battled your rival again just before Victory Road. So, he probably won very shortly before you arrived, but wanted to wait, knowing you were coming.

It's a bit of a plot hole as to how your rival is still Champion again every time you go back up there; in newer generations, the anime (4th gen mostly, I think) makes brief reference to some sort of Champions' Tournament which probably would have something to do with that.

Or maybe it's just assumed the player character joins the Hall of Fame but declines the position of Champion every time (perhaps another reason Red is spotted on Mt. Silver in Gen 2).

You know what also sucks on top of the fact that he has to stand there all day?

The fact that he'll be working there for the rest of his life, since no matter how many times you beat him, he's still the champion.

It's like time is going in an infinite loop, in the ultimate form of irony. I mean, he got his wish of being the champion, but now that's all he'll ever be. Forever.

Blue sure has a morbid life.

I am so glad none of these comments are canon...otherwise Pokemon would be pretty morbid. 8'V

For some reason I really enjoy the blue cat thing you use as a picture

@chickenpeep: Thanks! It's an obscure Star Wars species called a Squib. They rock.

@Surfersquid I always wondered about your avatar.
