So lately I've been thinking that there should be a spin-off about a younger Professor Oak. It's obvious that he was a trainer at some point as he created The Pokedex. It would focus on Professor Oak's travels and adventures as a trainer presumably with Agatha as well. Yes, the anime never mentioned that they knew one another but I'd still love to see a show with them in their younger days. Then there's Professor Rowan and again his relationship was only in the games but it's still worth bringing up on TV. So Pokemon: The Origin has been a success in Japan and that's a prequel, then why not a series with Professor Oak? Am I crazy or does anyone else think it would be really cool? Lastly, why hasn't this been done yet? It's been 15 years and I'd still love to find out who Professor Oak is. As of now, He's just sort of a wacky old man that has no visible means of financial support yet can still travel all around the world.
