I’ve noticed that on the Database and on Bulbapedia, it wills sometimes list a requirement as “after beating the Elite 4” and other times it will be “after entering the Hall of Fame”. Is this simply an inadvertent inconsistency, or is there a difference?

Maybe it’s because to get into the Hall Of Fame you hafta beat the Champion?
Yes, I think "after beating the champion" is usually more correct than "after beating the Elite Four". Most of the things that happen "after beating the Elite Four" won't happen if you lose to the champion.

They often mean the same thing, though you entering the Hall of Fame for the first time is what it often refers to. All it really means is to beat the Champion of the region for the first time.
