He's tried for more than 20 years to be the very best...

Always the bridesmaid but never the bride, Pokemon Trainer and hero to us all, Ash Ketchum, has finally become a Pokemon League Champion.

Ash did away with his Pokemon League Championship drought — one that lasted more than 20 years — in the 139th episode of the Pokemon Sun and Moon anime series, taking the title of Pokemon League Champion in the Alola region contest.

Fans flocked to Twitter celebrate Ash’s new title of Pokemon Master.

Even Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda took to the social media platform to celebrate.

Prior to his Alola win, Ash’s best result in a Pokemon League Championship was a second place finish the Kalos league (aka the Pokemon XYZ series), losing out to Allan and Charizard.

Our best wishes go out to the ever-struggling anime character.
