Retired Pokemon Trainer and current researcher, Professor Samuel Oak is a fun and easy cosplay this convention season. Follow our guide and we’ll help you pull off his signature look in seven easy pieces! Let’s start with the accessories, we chose a Plush Starter Pokemon Set and a Pokemon Interactive Pokedex.
For Professor Oak’s outfit, we went with a Cherokee 40-Inch Lab Coat over a Men’s Burgundy Polo Shirt. We paired a pair of Dickies Flat-Front Pants belted with a Brown Gunmetal Plaque Belt. We finished off his look with a comfy pair of Crocs Santa Cruz 2.
If you’re a die-hard fan of Pokemon, look no further than Professor Oak for your next cosplay convention. With the exception of the lab coat, the rest of his outfit can either be found in your closet or at a local thrift store, to keep costs down. But let’s discuss the lab coat. It can easily be found online or any costume shop. You may already have his burgundy polo shirt and khaki pants, if not, visit a friend’s closet or a thrift store.
Accessorize with a stack of books or pointer, to lend some authenticity to your look. For group cosplay, the possibilities are endless. You can bring in grandson Gary, fellow Professor Rowan or any Pokemon, if you’re into that sort of thing. Make sure you check out our featured pics for more style ideas. We welcome your pics too!

Professor Samuel Oak is a wildly talented researcher and former competitive Pokemon Trainer. Considered top in his field of study, Professor Oak serves as a teacher and mentor to new Pokemon Trainers. A never-ending source of useful information, he can be counted on to give sound advice and the sporadic plot device. One of his greatest accomplishments is the development of the Pokedex. He sends his young trainers out into the Kanto Region, equipped with the Pokemon of their choice. He is also the proud owner of a Rotom, a Pidgey and a Dragonite.
While he is an expert in all things relating to Pokemon, Professor Oak’s area of expertise is Pokémon behavioral science. He is not all serious though, as a hobby he writes poetry about Pokemon, he’s even known to some as “the rhyming professor”. In the Japanese version of the series, Professor Oak is named after the orchid. However, in the English version named after the oak tree.
