You wanna be the very best, like no one ever was? Well, get in line!

Pokémon Go has caused a resurgence of Poké-Mania two decades after the franchise's original ‘90s craze.

Not every gamer has been steadily playing since the original games came out in 1996 — but if anyone has put in the most time to training Pokémon, it's Ash Ketchum!

The 10-year-old hero of the animated series has been traveling the world with his Pikachu and other various companions since the late ‘90s. But even with all that experience, Ash is still one of the worst trainers alive!

From making novice battle commands to giving away his best Pokemon for no reason, Ash has made plenty of mistakes on his journey.

So before you continue building your mobile Pokédex, take our Poké-quiz (below) to see how you stack up against the OG trainer himself!

Wow. In case you were wondering if Veep is real life…

US State Department spokesman John Kirby was engaged in a very serious briefing with the media on Thursday afternoon, discussing the Obama administration's efforts to fight the terrorist group ISIS when a little bit of goofiness entered the equation.

As Kirby was mid-talk on his terrorism briefing, he glanced over to an as-yet unidentified journalist sitting in the room, and noticed the media member doing something unusual.

Kirby asked him a question that we can pretty reasonably assume has never been asked in the middle of a State Department briefing before in the history of the country (below):

He must have had some pics of the judge, too!

If you were anywhere near a computer on August 31, 2014, then chances are you remember The Fappening — a mass leak of celebrity nude photos and other private information.

Nearly 500 photos of A-list celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Kaley Cuoco, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead made their way online that fateful day… and now, nearly two years later, at least one of the hackers is finally paying for the cyber crime!

Unfortunately for the victims, however, his punishment isn't that severe at all… because it was announced on Friday that Andrew Helton will be serving only SIX MONTHS in a federal prison for showing their naughty bits to the world!

After that small vacation behind bars, the tech-savvy criminal will then spend the next two years under supervised release… but that doesn't sound nearly as harsh as it could have or should have been.

While the FBI refused to share exactly which of the dozens of targeted starlets Andrew actually hacked, it was reported that he was responsible for 161 nude pics from 13 different people.

Do U think the Fappening hacker deserves a harsher sentence??

We choose you, Detective Pikachu!

Despite debuting way back in 1995, Pokémon is currently at the peak of its popularity thanks to Pokémon Go.

The Niantic augmented reality app already has more daily users than every other social media service, which perfectly exemplifies why we're not shocked that a live-action Pokémon movie is officially a go!

That's right, nerds! Legendary Entertainment will be teaming up with The Pokémon Company to create a feature-length adaptation of their newest video game, Detective Pikachu, with production starting as early as 2017.

While there's no direct relation between Pokémon Go and the new movie… it cannot be a coincidence that the project was announced just two weeks after the game's American release and subsequent 25 percent jump in stock for Nintendo.

There's no word on casting just yet… but we think it's safe to say Danny DeVito is the clear choice to voice Pikachu, right?!

Plus, Universal will be handling the distribution rights for the fast-tracked film, so hopefully that means even more IRL Pokémon when Universal Studios eventually opens Nintendo Land!

Which of Ash's adventures do U want to see continue the live-action franchise next??
