Players have been speculating the identity of a character seen briefly in the newest Pokémon Sun and Moon trailer that strongly resembles Professor Oak. Following this, a new post has been added to the official website titled “Regional Variant Researcher: Is This Professor Oak’s Alola Form?!” The post reveals the identity of the man to be “Samson Oak,” the cousin of the Professor Oak from the Kanto region. Samson Oak, fittingly, focuses his research primarily on the regional variations of Pokémon in the Alolan region.
