That's pretty cool to give gym leaders teams that were used at the championships IRL.

A better use for wifi than the rumors about certain gym leaders themselves being DLC after that Corocoro issue came out.

The teams won't be given to Gym Leaders; a batch of new Trainers will be given them. The Gym Leaders have their own teams.

This has actually been done before, in Pokemon Stadium.

That has been confirmed to happen as shown in an IGN article called Special Prize Announced for Pokémon World Championship and I've added this information to the Bulbanews article in an update.

So my guess was right about Game Freak being able to put new sprites in the games...though I had assumed Gym Leaders were being held off and we were going to get redesigns, but this is fine too.

I'm not sure about that. The press release says nothing about putting the actual winners as downloads, only the Pokemon teams they used.

Press release: Crunchyroll - America's Elite Pokémon Players Take On The World In Hawaii

There's probably a way to clarify this, has anyone downloaded what they are distributing for the Japanese games and see if they use new sprites?
