In the anime
At some point, Oak was a lecturer at [[Celadon University]], where [[Foster]] was one of his top students. In [[Professor Elm]]'s [[EP117|debut]], he mentioned that he was one of Oak's top performing students at university. In ''[[M03|Spell of the Unown: Entei]]'', it was revealed that Oak also taught [[Spencer Hale]] and {{Ash}}'s mother {{Delia}}.
[[SS001|Four years before the start of the series]], Professor Oak hosted a Pokémon Summer Camp, where he lectured the many attendees including {{an|Go}} and [[Koharu]] about Pokémon. Some time later, he would host another camp which was attended by Ash and {{an|Serena}}.

After winning a trip to the [[Alola]] region, Delia and Ash headed to Professor Oak's lab, where he received Ash's on-hand Pokémon and took the opportunity to entrust Delia with a [[Pokémon Egg]]. He asked her to deliver the Egg to his cousin [[Samson Oak]], at the [[Pokémon School]] on [[Melemele Island]].
In ''[[SM111|Show Me the Metal!]]'', Ash made contact with him after discovering a group of {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Melmetal|Meltan}}. {{Rotom}} sent through its gathered data for Oak to examine. In the [[SM112|following episode]], Professor Oak informed Ash that he had identified the mysterious Pokémon as an entirely new species, and he settled on the name "{{p|Meltan}}", the Hex Nut Pokémon and gave it a {{type|Steel}} classification.
In ''[[SM138|Final Rivals!]]'', Oak and Delia arrived at [[Manalo Stadium]] to watch Ash's {{pkmn|battle}} during the [[Manalo Conference]] finals. Upon arriving, he met Ash's {{p|Meltan}} for the first time, then watched as it combined with the other Meltan to evolve into {{AP|Melmetal}}. He was happy to witness Ash win the Malano Conference in [[SM139|the next episode]]. During the attack by the {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Manalo Stadium Guzzlord|Guzzlord}} in ''[[SM140|Z-Move Showdown!]]'', Oak was among the people that were being evacuated until another {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Shiny Guzzlord|Guzzlord}} appeared, blocking the ships.
After the crisis had been resolved, Oak remained at Manalo Stadium to watch Ash and Professor Kukui's {{wp|exhibition game|exhibition match}}. Following Ash's win, he and Delia returned to Pallet Town.

In [[SS002]], Professor Oak traveled to [[Vermilion City]] to assist in the opening of [[Sakuragi Institute]] and invited Ash to join him and attend the ceremony. He was later present when Ash and Go shared their experience of their encounter with {{p|Lugia}}. After Ash was appointed as one of [[Professor Sakuragi]]'s [[Professors' aides|research fellows]], he and Delia returned to Pallet Town.
