Two decades and over 1,000 episodes later, Pokemon series protagonist Ash Ketchum has finally become a Pokemon Champion.

The latest episode of the Pokemon Sun & Moon has gone live, where the latest pokemon tournament Ash competed in coming to a close. The series hero beat out Gladion to become the winner of the Alolan League, making him a Champion for the first time.

Previously, Ash got close to earning his mark as a Champion when he was battling through the Kalos league. With each region, season, and league, Ash got close since his humble beginnings in Pallet Town.
