    "He started out on a journey to catch every Pokemon. The shocking part? He's been at it for over a decade and has what, 50 tops?"

    Seemed more appropriate. Ash stopped being ten when I did.

      If we're going to be nitpicky, Ash never said anything about catching 'em all. Just he wanted to become a pokemon master.

      That said, he's still failed to do that.

        I was under the assumption catching them all was a prerequisite for being a Pokemon Master.

        If beating the elite four is all it takes, that title is a lot less impressive.

          Nintendo has been intentionally vague about what it actually takes to officially be a Pokemon Master (supposedly its to add an air of mystery to to the title), but I'd say that beating the 4 best Pokemon trainers in the entire region consecutively would be pretty darn impressive. Besides, if the prerequisite was to catch every Pokemon ever, including every legendary (one of which is a literal god) and Pokemon in which there are only one of them, nobody would ever be able to achieve it.

    What the heck is "Upworthy"?

      It's an aggregate site where they basically just repost glurge and feelgood stories and other stuff they think people ought to be educated about.

      They basically find some sappy video or something and write some stupid headline that frames it to tug at your heartfeels.

        That's an apt summary.

        My favourite part is the bullshit popups they have to attempt to lure you into signing it up.
        "Do you think everyone is equal? Do you think pedophiles are bad? Do you like kittens?"
        I always click no on those things, wasn't until later that I found out clicking yes goes to the sign up page or whatever.

    Not to put to fine a point on it, but I think there's a little bit of "pot calling the kettle black" going on here. Articles from the US Kotaku have been riddled with these "You won't believe X" and other annoyingly non specific headlines for a while now. I'd really appreciate if that were no long er the case.

      Yeah. It'd be nice if they could keep tighter control over those headlines. Less Buzzfeed, more newspaper.
