Um...isn't Sam Professor Oak? Why isn't it mentioned? J-J-M 13:17, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes. It's a soft redirect, so that searching Sam doesn't instantly reveal they are the same. If you click the link at the top of the page, it takes you to Professor Oak. The article cannot mention that he is Professor Oak past that link without defeating its own purpose. --SnorlaxMonster 13:24, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Mentioning plot twists in the articles isn't anything new. There's even a spoiler tag for that so... J-J-M 13:31, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Same reason we have Mask of Ice, Mayor Es Cade, Edward and others. --ZestyCactus 06:12, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
