In Generation I
Professor Oak works in [[Professor Oak's Laboratory|his Laboratory]] in [[Pallet Town]] with his aides. He gave {{ga|Red}} and {{ga|Blue}} their [[starter Pokémon]] in {{game3|Red and Blue|Pokémon Red, Blue|s}}, {{game3|Red and Green|Green|s}}, {{v2|Yellow}}, {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}. He is an idol to many Trainers and researchers, including [[Professor Elm]], and always plays an important supporting role in the many games that he appears in.
He was a childhood friend of [[Agatha]]. They remained good friends and top-class Pokémon Trainers until Oak stopped battling and became interested in Pokémon research. Agatha said that he became soft and started to regard him as a fool. However, Oak still affiliates with the [[Pokémon League]] as an adviser. In ''[[Pokemon Masters]]'' during her Sync Pair Story "A Day with Agatha", Agatha explains how she and Oak met. Oak was always friendly and open when he was young and would talk to Agatha and try to help her. Though he was only trying to be nice it still annoyed Agatha because she wanted to be alone. Agatha would battle Oak to try and get him to go away but he was better than her, and so she would battle him again and again. Eventually the time they spent together began to mean a lot to Agatha, and so when Oak got the idea for the [[Pokédex]] and stopped battling, Agatha felt betrayed.
