    I honestly don't see the point of Oak getting a new Pokemon. I mean the guy rarely appears and when he does he usually just gets kidnapped a speaking role and not an action role. It just seems redundant for a Pokemon to be captured when it's rarely (or maybe never) going to appear again. But of course, I know I'm the only person who thinks this way.

    Your clearly forgetting that I was the first one to question this decision (Oak capturing Rotom) XD

    He can darnwell use his Charmeleon/zard and Dragonite if he wants to battle! Lord knows we haven't overexposure of those two in the recent months!

    Teh sarcasm O_o!

    People for some reason don't count those as cannon so a new pokemon can't be disputed.

    I'll tell you what I'm excited about. The possibility that Stuart Zagnit might reprise his role as Oak . He did get to do Cedric Juniper not too long ago so yeah.

    I wonder why the professor oak does not show all their pokemon their badges and trophies? will be that Professor Oak was already the champion of kanto?

    A capture doesn't have to only happen for characters who are going to appear often or battle. People do have Pokemon for other reasons.

    Exactly! Like Deliah and Mr.Mime.. And lets not forget Tracy's Venonat and Scyther, even though epic oldgeezer status, was undershowcased as well. Even his Marill, a new pokemon at the time.

    So now its a big deal about Prof. Oak?

    Prof. Oak appeared in Hoenn in the middle and in DP in the middle. Prof. Oak usually gets an episode out of the lab in every saga. Why is anyone shocked?

    People dare question the motives of the mighty Oak? The disrespect. I'm glad OG professor is doing something different on screen for once.

    Well Oak already has other Pokemon and like I said, he doesn't appear often enough to get a lot of chances to battle in the first place. He's a professor anyway so he shouldn't have to battle at all in my opinion.

    Well aside from possibly catching Rotom for research purposes, I can't see what else Oak would want a Rotom for. :x

    I love Oak deep down, but why do I get the feeling that he'll end up being kidnapped by either Rotom or Team Rocket at one point in the episode?

    It's good to see Oak his getting his regional focus episode.

    He got a tonne in OS, but AG071 and DP139 were definetly the main in Hoenn and Sinnoh.

    He could be catching it for plot purposes of the episode. We don't know what's happening here, for all we know, Rotom is causing problems so Oak decides to catch it so it wont cause havoc, he could end up releasing it in the end if Rotom changes it's ways.

    Of course Oak is catching it for plot purposes, and not just the episode but the general plot of the anime overall.

    I don't see why it's such a big deal.

    Absolutely any character can catch a Pokemon EVEN if they don't use the Pokemon to battle. Just because we don't see a captured Pokemon frequently (aside from the main characters, Ash, Iris, Cilan - Jessie James etc.) doesn't mean the capture is pointless at all.

    I'm ashamed the fandom has such thoughts.

    I doubt a Rotom in Oak's hands would have that much effect. This is just a bit too much, considering Oak's lowkey appearances half of the time.

    Anything that is done in the anime and effects a character is done for the general plot of the anime overall.

    From this episode onwards (considering he doesn't release it) Oak will always have a Rotom. That definetly effects the general plot, not just one episode like a filler does.

    A simple solution that is never used in the anime. Especially the evil teams, who will do anything but catching the Pokemon, which results in losing their control over it. It would be interesting to see the alternative.

    Considering Rotom has some backstory in the games involving scientific research on it think its makes sense we have an episode with Prof. Oak doing research of his own which includes catching one.
