===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
Samson Oak debuted in ''[[PASM04|The Decision and the Tournament of Six]]''. He served as a judge at a tournament held at an [[Iki Town]] festival. During {{adv|Moon}}'s battle against [[Gladion]], Moon was confused as to why Gladion wouldn't have his {{p|Porygon}} attack her newly-caught Alolan {{p|Grimer}} with {{m|Psybeam}}. Samson stepped in to tell Moon, who had only just recently arrived in [[Alola]], about how [[regional variant]]s can also have different [[type]]s as well as appearances.
In [[PASM29]], [[Sina]] and [[Dexio]] took Samson to the Aether Base on {{rt|16|Alola}}. They introduced him to the Reassembly Unit, which they planned on using to control {{adv|Zygarde}}'s {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Zygarde|forms}}. Later, Samson, Sina, Dexio, and [[Lillie]] set off to [[Mount Lanakila]] to investigate an [[Ultra Wormhole]] that appeared above the area. Before they could leave, a large swarm of Zygarde Cells and a Core converged into the Reassembly Unit and emerged as a Complete Forme Zygarde. Shortly afterward, {{adv|Sun}} emerged from the wormhole and was rescued by Zygarde. Samson and the others traveled to Mount Lanakila, where they found an injured [[Nebby|Lunala]] and [[Lusamine]]. After Lillie helped free her mother from the {{p|Nihilego}} she was fused with, Lusamine fainted. Sun tried getting Zygarde to take Lusamine to a hospital, only to notice that {{p|Necrozma}} had arrived.
