Character Information:

Professor Samuel Oak


Character Names / Voice Actors:
Professor Oak is the leading Pokémon Professor of the Kanto Region. In addition to his research duties, it is his responsibility to distribute the beginner's Pokémon - Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander - to trainers just starting out on their Pokémon journey. In addition, he is responsible for giving trainers basic gear that will help them on their journey, such as a PokéDex and PokéBalls. The morning of the start of Ash Ketchum's Pokémon Journey, Ash Ketchum woke up late and by the time he had reached Oak's office, the Professor had already given away the beginner Pokémon. Thus, Professor Oak was forced to give Ash Ketchum a Pikachu instead. Captured Pokémon can also be transferred to him, and he takes care of Ash Ketchum's unused Pokemon. He gives helpful advice to Ash Ketchum and the group throughout their journey.

Professor Ivy read an article by Professor Oak titled: "The Challenges facing Anthro-Pokémon Global Cohabitation" and told him that she found it absolutely fascinating.
