Pokémon world locations

The Silph Corporation (Japanese: シルフカンパニー Silph Company) is a company in many versions of the Pokémon franchise. They are the manufacturers of many tools, including the Silph Scope, which allows the user to view spectral entities, and have headquarters in Saffron City. They are also speculated to run the Poké Marts in Kanto and possibly Johto and the Sevii Islands as well.

Geography

Company overview

File:Silphco pres.png
Receiving the Master Ball from the President

Silph Co. is the leading manufacturer of Pokémon technology. It is this company that produces the Poké Balls used by trainers to capture Pokémon, and they are constantly looking for ways to improve upon them. Their status made them a target in the Generation I storyline, in which Team Rocket orchestrated the takeover of their headquarters in Saffron City. The player, though, will arrive just in time to take on the mission of driving them out of the city, and the President of Silph will reveal afterwards the top-secret development Team Rocket was after: the Master Ball, which can catch any Pokémon without fail.

Headquarters

File:Silph Co.png
Silph Co. from the Generation III games

The Silph Co. Head Office Building is an eleven-floor skyscraper that is effectively a giant maze. In the games, the player must navigate using warp tiles in order to reach the board room on the top floor. The player must find the Card Key, which unlocks Silph's doors like a hotel key, on the fifth floor of the building in order to do this. All the while, the player must battle through numerous Team Rocket grunts, including the Rocket Brothers, and one Juggler.

Then the player must return to the third floor, open the doors in the center-left of the floor, and use the warp tile to the far left to be taken to the room with a further warp tile that leads to board room. The player's rival waits in that room and the player must face him before continuing on. After he has been beaten, the other person in the room will give the player a Lapras, an extremely rare Pokémon that cannot be obtained any other way in Generation I.

After this, the player may continue on to the board room to face Giovanni for the Master Ball. After rescuing Silph, the player is free to explore the building and talk to the employees.

In Generation II, Silph Co. has increased security, and the player is not allowed to enter the upper floors. One of the guards, however, will kindly give the player an Up-Grade for talking to him, which will allow a Porygon to evolve through a trade into Porygon2. In Generation IV's HeartGold and SoulSilver, one of the Hoenn region's starter Pokémon may be obtained here towards the end of the game from Hoenn Champion himself, Steven Stone. The alternate forms of Rotom may also be accessed here in Generation IV via the broken elevator. When Rotom is in the party the Silph Co. building will be deserted of all people, including Steven. The notebook present in the room Rotom's appliances can be found in indicates that Charon may have had past connection to the company. Generation IV also introduced a logo for the company that appears on the Pokégear and has a statue based on it in the company's building.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Silph Co. made a brief appearance at the end of Holy Moltres in the Red, Green & Blue chapter, where Sabrina was in the office with Giovanni saying that they have captured all the Legendary Birds.

In Super Smash Bros.

Main article: Saffron City (stage)

Silph Co. appears in Saffron City as a playable stage in Super Smash Bros.. The battle takes place on the roof of Silph Co. and a few smaller surrounding buildings, along with two small moving platforms. This is the home stage of Pikachu and Jigglypuff in the game.

Certain Pokémon will emerge from the elevator on the Silph Co. building and attack briefly, similar to Pokémon summoned from Poké Balls. Occasionally, Pidgey, Fearow, Butterfree, and other Template:Type2 Pokémon will appear in the background.

Trivia

  • Oddly enough, among the grunts and Team Rocket scientists in Silph Co. is Juggler Dalton, who attacks the player like any grunt, exclaiming that kids shouldn't be here. He battles the player with a Kadabra and a Mr. Mime. After the battle, he says that it's a long way to his boss, indirectly referring to Giovanni, which hints that Dalton is associated with Team Rocket (though is clearly not a grunt). He is also the only Team Rocket member not belonging to Team Rocket or Scientist Trainer classes.
  • When the player encounters Scientist Taylor, before battle he says that he was shipped off to the "Tiksi branch" of the company, which after being defeated he says is "in Russian no-man's-land." This is another reference of the real world in Pokémon games, and shows that Silph probably has more branches than just the one in Saffron City.
  • On the eleventh floor there is an accessible PC. It is possibly there to allow players with a full party to deposit a Pokémon so that they can receive the Lapras from the person on the seventh floor without having to go all the way to the Pokémon Center.

Name origin

It is speculated that Silph Co.'s name is derived from the sylph, a mythological creature.
