LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Pokemon fans young and old are rejoicing after perennial Pokemon Tournament loser Ash Ketchum finally brought home the Poke-gold!
For more than 20 years the animated protagonist has struggled to be the best and, in the latest episode of "Pokemon the Series: Sun and Moon," he gets his wish as he took top prize in the Alola League championship competition.
Fans were reacting in shock and surprise all over the Internet on Sunday.
Even the Vegas Golden Knights took a pause from tweeting about the VGK game against the Arizona Coyotes to congratulate Ash on his win.
