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's Pokémon Journey, Ash 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 a Pikachu instead. Captured Pokémon can also be transferred to him, and he takes care of Ash's unused Pokemon. He gives helpful advice to Ash 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.
