That depends on which pool game you're playing. In 8-ball, you choose either the solid balls or the stripe balls and must pot those before attempting the 8-ball for the win.

In one-pocket, when playing without handicaps, you shoot for any ball and the first player to make 8 balls in his/her designated pocket wins.
