Clearly Alolan Oak.

Slightly different design, same name, from Alola... fits the bill.
lol

But speaking of which, I think its safe to say he will be the one to run us down on Alolan form Pokemon.

That was my reaction as well!

It's Hippy Professor Oak or a cousin of him at least.

Maybe they are really, really trying to imply that alternate universes aren't just a theory. Hahaha.

He looks a bit young to be Professor Oak.
Maybe he's a distant relative or something?

Also, why are his eyebrows black but his hair colour is white?

His name in the trailer is straight up "Okido" (Oak). That our Samuel, but he just got some sun and has been neglecting his barber.

Plot twist: It's Gary Oak instead! :eek:

Eagerly waiting for Alolan Blue & Red here.

But seriously, this is genius. Gen I stuff getting Alolan Forms, so of course an Alolan Oak has to explain that since Kukui is busing taking Z-Moves to the face.

So..... where's Gary Oak?

I honestly think that Lusamine, Gladion and Lillie are related in some way. There's no way that it's a coincidence for them to have the same hair and eye colour. They could be family or siblings?

They probably used to be in the Aether Foundation except:
- Gladion may have defected from the Foundation after what they did to Type: Null and joined with Team Skull for revenge against them. He probably hates people mistreating Pokemon as well.
- Lillie probably lived a sheltered life and escaped from the Aether Foundation to find Gladion. Instead, she joined Kukui's assistant to observe people and Pokemon outside of the Foundation and how they treat each other. Maybe the Type: Null incident was the reason why she hates battles as well.
I have no doubt the three are family. It's going to be nice to see the relative of the villain help you out again like in BW. I just hope they stick around after the end of the game instead of leaving like N.

Naturally, he's the rival picking the stronger starter to yours.

And his whole team is made up of that starter and Alolan Forms of the other Blue.

So... Anyone else considering this might not be (the) Professor Oak? I mean, I'm pretty sure it's not possible for someone as light skinned as Oak to get THAT tanned.

I just heard that it's his cousin, Nariya Oak.

Trust me, it is. Besides, unless old Sammy boy had a twin we don't know about, there's no way that some random relative of his looks exactly like him. I mean, Blue has similar features, but I don't think this game is that far along in the timeline (40+ years after Gen 1 & 3).

Famitsu confirmed it is a new character, link was posted above.
