Bongo definitely has a point there. You should decide what you WANT first, then look at how to get there, what it takes to get there.
I assume that AxeDemon´s goal is to work on improvisation and soloing. And for that, the pentatonic scale is a good point to start, before getting into modes etc.
When I teach or conduct workshops, I hear a bunch of questions about all kinda weird scales. It´s just one of those myths that you need to know all kinds of exotic scales to play better etc., or that there are some scales that might make you sound better.
Well, there aren´t, and I´d recommend to pick a goal ( i.e. improvise melodies or solos over a given chord-progression ), and pick one scale ( i.e. the pentatonic... IMO, a good starting-point ), then work on that... use it, explore the scale.
I used to make a common mistake... I learned a scale, used it for like one say, then went on to the next. I never explored the scale, never really focussed on it.
In the end, I knew all those weird scales ( we´re talking about playing Hirajoshi all over the fretboard ), but I wasn´t really able to come up with good melodies or play with conviction, cause I was just confused, overloaded with exotic scales...
