Webster (Japanese: ユウジ Yūji), known as Randy in Generation II, is a non-player character in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal as well as their remakes, HeartGold and SoulSilver. He is a guard posted at the gate between Goldenrod City and Route 35.

Webster gives the player his Spearow named Kenya (Japanese: ひきゃく Hikyaku) holding a mail, and asks him or her to deliver it to his friend on Route 31. As a gesture of thanks, he will give the player a HP Up. Once the mail has been delivered, Webster's friend will hand out TM50 (Nightmare) in Generation II or TM44 (Rest) in Generation IV. It does not matter which Pokémon is given to Webster's friend, just that the mail is delivered. In Generation II, if the player removes the mail from Kenya, putting it in their computer, then gives the mail to another Pokémon, Webster's friend will take the mail and Pokémon from them. In Generation IV, however, any Pokémon replacing Kenya will be returned to the player. Due to this, a player may keep Kenya for the duration of the game or deliver it after evolving it into Fearow and still receive the TM.

In the game, Webster is recognized as an in-game trader. However, Kenya is simply given to the player and no Pokémon is expected in return. Unlike most Pokémon given by NPCs, Kenya has Webster's ID and OT, possibly because the player was meant to give the Spearow to Webster's friend. Hence, when battling with it, it will act like an outsider and receive the experience boost for traded Pokémon.

  • Before taking Kenya
"Excuse me, guy! Can you do a guy a favor? Can you take this Pokémon with Mail to my friend? He's on Route 31."
No: "Oh... Never mind, then..."
Yes: "You will? Perfect! Thanks, guy! My pal's a chubby guy who snoozes all the time. You'll recognize him right away!" (Hands over Kenya) "You can read it, but don't lose it! Route 31! Oh, yeah. There was a weird tree blocking the road. I wonder if it's been cleared?"
  • If talked to again
