Wait hold on.
Is that Professor Oak in the Manga Adaptation comic, the one with the new character?
I mean I wish it was easy to just say that it's the new character....BUT they have different hairstyles and they look slightly different. It's a one off pane if it is Oak, so I guess it's likely if it is Oak, he has relevance to this new character and that's why he's there, but I could be wrong.
I just don't quite believe that it's the new character, since again they do look slightly different, but I guess that could be how the Manga adaptation was done. Like how Majin Buu in Dragon Ball Z, could morph his face in a "pretty boy- type character" something like that.
Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.
