Pokémon world locations

Mt. Silver, also known as Silver Cave (Japanese: シロガネやま Mt. Shirogane) is a large mountain in Johto located west of Victory Road and Indigo Plateau. Mt. Silver can be reached from Kanto via Route 28 after receiving the sixteen Gym Badges of both Johto and Kanto. At the very summit of Mt. Silver, the player may battle with Red. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Moltres can also be found here.

A field based on Mt. Silver also appears in Pokémon Stadium 2's Kanto Gym Leader Castle.

In the anime, it is the home of Silver Town, where the Johto League's Silver Conference is held.

Geography

In the games, Mt. Silver is off-limits to all but the most skilled of Trainers. After the player has received all sixteen badges of Johto and Kanto, Professor Oak will give the player 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 Red, who will wordlessly challenge the player to what is the highest-leveled Trainer battle in the Pokémon series.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Mt. Silver is much larger than before. Flash is no longer needed to light up the cave. The higher sections of the cave, where Red is located, require Rock Climb to be accessible. At times, the player must also venture onto the slopes on the mountain's sides in order to climb higher. In addition, a heavy snowfall is present at the summit, which assumes the hail weather condition in battle; this weather can become diamond dust on certain days.

In the anime

Mt. Silver 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.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter of Pokémon Adventures, Red goes to the springs in Mt. Silver to recuperate from injuries he suffered from being frozen by Lorelei's Pokémon during the Yellow chapter. While there, he meets Sabrina, a former enemy of his, who is there to recuperate from similar injuries.

Later, Red and Gold train together at Mt. Silver. Their training session is seen in two special rounds printed in Pokémon the Comic. In the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter, the Radio Director admitted to Gold that he did spy on him training with Red on Mt. Silver. That was the basis of an idea for the Radio Director to move into the television business with - a kids cartoon called Proteam Omega.

Trivia

Though Mt. Silver appears relatively deep into Kanto, it is identified as a Johto location by the Pokégear.
  • 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.
  • Red's Pikachu, who can be fought here at level 88 (level 81 in Generation II), is the highest-leveled Pokémon of any in-game Trainer in the series.
  • In the original player's guide to Gold and Silver, there is mention of a "?" Pokémon that appears near the waterfalls in Mt. Silver at midnight or very early in the morning; however, this was a false rumor. The guide also claimed that the unknown Pokémon was supposed to represent legendary Pokémon found in Generation I that did not appear in Gold and Silver (which were programmed in and tradable from Generation I anyway).
  • Like Snowpoint City, Mt. Silver's summit features diamond dust on certain special days in Generation IV, including the anniversary of Gold and Silver's original release.
  • Mt. Silver is marked as a Johto location by the Pokégear; however, all squares immediately surrounding it (including those to the west of it) are marked as Kanto areas by the Pokégear in Generation IV. This issue was not present in the Generation II map, which placed it directly above New Bark Town.
  • The exterior of Mt. Silver is the only Johto area with Kanto characteristics, like the rocks, tall grass, trees, and the Pokémon Center itself. However, in Generation IV, the only major differences are the rocks and trees; for example, the trees placed in the high exteriors of the mountain itself are the ones commonly found in Johto.
  • In Generation IV, whenever the player is in or on the mountain, the location bar will always say "Mt. Silver Cave", even when the player is not inside the cave.
  • Mt. Silver is the only location in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver where a naturally occurring hailstorm can be experienced.
  • Encountering Red here in regular gameplay requires that the player obtains the 16 Badges of both Johto and Kanto (and Kanto itself is only accessible after entering the Hall of Fame at Indigo Plateau first), then being granted access to Mt. Silver from Professor Oak. Despite this, in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Red can be found at Mt. Silver the first time right at the beginning of the player's journey by bypassing the collision data of the overworld maps or by cheating. This is not possible in Generation II, as the game is programmed to only allow Red to appear at Mt. Silver after the player has entered the Hall of Fame, even though regular gameplay imposes further requirements.

Origin

Mt. Silver is based on Mt. Fuji in the real-world Japan.
