In Alola to New Adventure!, Ash and his mother Delia arrived at the Pokémon School, which Samson is the principal of. Upon meeting him, Ash soon realized how much he enjoyed to make puns out of Pokémon names, which Ash didn't seem to enjoy.
In Alolan Open House!, he hosted the Open Day at the Pokémon School that allowed the students' family and other people to visit.
Principal Oak is a pretty happy-go-lucky character, much like his cousin, Professor Oak. Just like his cousin's senryū's, Principal Oak enjoys making Pokémon puns regularly and more often than not, will turn his face or body into the shape of the Pokémon that he is talking about.
