Pokémon world locations

Mt. Silver (Japanese: シロガネやま Shirogane Mountain) is a large mountain in Johto located west of Victory Road and the Indigo Plateau. Mt. Silver can be reached from Kanto via Route 28 after receiving the sixteen gym badges of both Johto and Kanto. Deep in the caves of Mt. Silver, the player may battle with Red. In the anime, it is the home of Silver Town. It is based off of Mt. Fuji in the real-world Japan.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Moltres can also be found here.

Geography

In the games, Mt. Silver is off-limits to all but the most skilled of Trainers. After Gold or Kris has received all sixteen badges of Johto and Kanto, Professor Oak will give him or her permission to travel here.

The route to the area is rough, though no HMs are explicitly required to reach the Pokémon Center just outside the entrance. Inside, however, the cave is dark, requiring Flash to see. Many high-level Pokémon reside in the cave, including rare Pokémon not found elsewhere in the Johto region, like Larvitar and Misdreavus.

The cave has only one entrance, unlike all other caves found in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, but goes deep into the mountain. In the cave's final room, the player will encounter a familiar face who will, wordlessly, challenge him or her to what is the highest-leveled Trainer battle in the history of the Pokémon series.

In the anime

In the anime, Mt. Silver is the home of Silver Town, a city that boasts at least 30 inhabitants. Silver Town's main attraction is the Silver Conference, the Johto League's yearly tournament that brings tourism to the city. Oddly, the anime depicts the mountain to be much smaller than shown in promotional maps.

Trivia

  • Mt. Silver was called Shirogane Mt. in the Gold and Silver "Deluxe edition" of the Pokémon Master Trainer board game. Because its release predated that of the games, it used the Japanese name.
  • Despite appearing to be closer to the Johto-Kanto border on the Town Map, the entrance to the Pokémon Center is 17 steps from the border when factoring in only horizontal distance, making it 10 steps farther from Kanto than the doorway of the player character's house.
  • Red's Pikachu, who can be fought here at level 88, is the strongest Pokémon of any in-game Trainer in the series. However, this only applies to HeartGold and SoulSilver, Red's Pikachu is at level 81 in the original games.
  • In the original players guide for Gold/Silver version there was the mention of "?" Pokémon appearing around the waterfall at midnight or very early in the morning, however this proved to be a false rumor. The guide also claimed these to represent the legendary Pokemon found in past games that do not appear in the game.
  • In the new Midori Harada artwork of Ecruteak City for HeartGold and SoulSilver, Mt. Silver can be seen standing tall in the background. Whether or not this is indicative of Mt. Silver now playing a bigger story role was disputed by fans. However, with the games release, it seems as though Mt. Silver plays a similar role in the storyline, with the addition of being the new home of Moltres.
