Chapter 002: Vs Bulbasaur
Oak makes his debut as he enters his lab and a kid dressed in red is already there, rummaging through his stuff. He shouts at him calling him a thief. The surprised boy, as he tries to explain himself, accidentally releases all of the Pokémon in his lab. Oak then demands that the boy re-capture all of the Pokémon he let loose. Though he did as ordered, some of the Pokémon escaped the lab. The boy introduced himself as Red and Oak introduced himself back. Though still untrusting of Red, Oak followed him as they recaptured all the Pokémon eventually winding up in Viridian City. The last Pokémon they had to find was a Bulbasaur, that ran into the city's abandoned gym. They entered behind it. Oak tried to calm the Bulbasaur down only to get Tackled. Red tried to calm it down and with better results. Oak noticed how the Bulbasaur warmed up to him. Suddenly, he and Red were attacked by a wild Machoke. Oak then passed out. He awoke after Red and Bulbasaur defeated Machoke with Solarbeam. He asked how he knew about Solarbeam and Red replied that he just thought that plant (the bulb) would need sunlight. Oak then heard Red out about why he went to his lab. Oak then explained that he would need to find his own strength. He then gave Red a Pokédex and Bulbasaur then parted ways.
Between Chapter 002 and Chapter 003
