A new Professor Oak kicks off the surprise launch of Pokémon Home on the Nintendo Switch

Pokémon Home, the new storage and trading cloud service attached to the mega franchise, is now available to download on the Nintendo Switch in a surprise release. Unfortunately, it comes with an additional surprise we didn’t see coming.

When you open up the app for the first time, you’re greeted by a familiar figure. It’s Professor Oak, or Grand Oak, as he calls himself. He’s like Professor Oak, only with long hair and funky glasses. It’s certainly not the first time we’ve seen a new version of the classic Professor (that would be “Alolan Oak” in Sun and Moon, although he was canonically the Professor’s cousin), but it’s definitely the weirdest.
