Principal Oak's Komala (Japanese: オーキド校長のネッコアラ Principal Ōkido's Nekkoara) is Principal Oak's first known Pokémon in the anime that first appeared in The Guardian's Challenge!.


Samson Oak and Komala first met when Oak was taking a leisurely stroll. He came across Komala, who was blocking the road for a few farmers and travelers because it had lost its log. Oak wanted to give Komala a Pinap Berry to replace its log, but instead, it clung on to Oak's face. From then on, Komala held on to Oak at all times, even when he carved a new log for it. One day, as Oak prepared to ring the bell of the Pokémon School, Komala took over and clung to the log used to ring the bell. Oak decided to keep it and Komala would continue to ring the bell every day on time.

Komala first appeared in The Guardian's Challenge!, where it was seen sleeping on a tree, outside the Pokémon School, where it usually likes to sleep. Komala usually appears as the bell-ringer for the School, where it rings the Bronzong-themed bell with its stump.

In Racing to a Big Event!, Komala competed in the Pokémon Pancake Race and ended up winning along with its Trainer.

In Let Sleeping Pokémon Lie!, because of its constant sleeping, it was able to avoid Jigglypuff's scribbling after its routine song, causing it to become furious. Samson, Professor Kukui, Ash, and his classmates were able to stop Jigglypuff by teaching Komala Sing and turning the situation around on it.

In SM129, Samson Oak used Komala during the Battle Royal round of the Manalo Conference. Komala was among the 16 Pokémon still fighting at the end, securing its trainer a place in the Top 16.

Personality and characteristics

Komala is a very relaxed Pokémon that likes to sleep, but despite this, it seems to like hitting things with its stump, like the bell at the Pokémon School and even its own Trainer. In addition, Komala is a competent battler, able to deftly dodge the attacks of Ash's Litten and Kiawe's Turtonator, as well as avoid Jigglypuff's outbursts.

In A Haunted House for Everyone!, Komala was shown to be caring towards Ash and his classmates. He woke them up after Lana pleaded with it, while they were trapped inside a nightmare created by a visiting Mismagius that was attracted by Acerola's Mimikyu.
