After defeating a Gym Leader you will receive a badge of that gym as proof of your victory. Each badge gives you access to various benefits, whether it's control over higher level pokémon, the use of certain abilities out of battle or stat boosts.
Collecting all the badges allows the player to challenge the Elite Four.
