'''Silver''' is the rival of {{ga|Gold}} and {{ga|Kris}}, and is about their age. He has long red hair and piercing eyes.
 
   
Fan speculation is that Silver may be [[Giovanni]]'s red-haired child, due to {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}'s [[Fame Checker]]'s many references to {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} versions, to Giovanni being [[Silver (Special)|Silver's manga equivalent]]'s father in [[Pokémon Special]], and to Silver's dark demeanor and detestment of Team Rocket.
+
'''Silver''' (Japanese: '''シルバー''' ''Silver'') is the [[rival]] character of {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}} and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, playing opposite {{ga|Ethan}}, {{ga|Kris}}, or {{ga|Lyra}}. He is the son of [[Team Rocket]] Boss [[Giovanni]].
   
==In the anime==
+
During the first {{pkmn|battle}} against him in HeartGold and SoulSilver, he is given the unique {{DL|Pokémon Trainer|Trainer class}} '''Passerby''' (Japanese: '''とおりすがり''' ''Passerby'') with the placeholder name '''Boy''' (Japanese: '''しょうねん''' ''Boy'').
[[Image:SilverAnime.png|thumb|left|Silver's cameo.]]
 
Like {{ga|Brendan}}, he played no role in the anime, despite being a main character in the games. Similarly, his only appearance in anime is a brief cameo, in the original Japanese opening of [[The Legend of Thunder]] ([[A New Oath]]), where he was shown with his {{p|Nidoking}} defeating {{jo|Jimmy}}.
 
   
[[Paul]] seems to be based on Silver, in appearance and personality. He also has most of the Pokémon as [[Silver (Special)|Silver's manga counterpart]]. It is unknown if Paul has ever met him, Jimmy, or {{jo|Marina}}. However, seeing as all four of them competed in the Johto League before {{Ash}} and [[Vincent]] did, this could be the case.

Silver first appears in the [[Generation II]] games, lurking outside of [[Professor Elm]]'s lab, looking through the window. When talked to, he will deny everything and push the player away. During the player's journey to [[Mr. Pokémon]]'s house, Silver makes his move, stealing one of Elm's two remaining [[starter Pokémon]] (coincidentally always the one that is strong against the player's choice). He will meet with the player on the outskirts of [[Cherrygrove City]], battling to get through. A policeman will later ask for the name of the rival, and the rival will be called the name the player gives for the rest of the game.

Silver shows a strong dislike of [[Team Rocket]]. He considers them to be weak, and vows to take them, as well as any other weak Trainer, down. He steals a Pokémon from a Trainer in [[Cianwood City]] and while {{ga|Ethan}}/{{ga|Kris}}/{{ga|Lyra}} attempts to take down Team Rocket in [[Mahogany Town]] and [[Goldenrod City]], he interferes to prove himself. It is in the Mahogany hideout that he meets with [[Lance]], {{pkmn|Champion}} of the [[Elite Four]] at [[Indigo Plateau]]. Silver challenges Lance and is easily defeated by the dragon Trainer, who then proceeds to berate Silver for his callous ways towards training Pokémon. Though Silver is outraged for losing to someone with such an attitude, the loss and Lance's words ultimately set him on the path to becoming a better person. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, when Team Rocket takes over the [[Goldenrod Radio Tower]], Silver first blows the player's Team Rocket disguise, unaware of the player's plan to sneak in by pretending to be a member of Team Rocket. He later follows the player to the Goldenrod underground and they battle Team Rocket, hoping that Lance will reappear and he can request a rematch.

==In the games==
+
By the time the player reaches {{ka|Victory Road}}, Silver battles against the player not out of malice, but to prove that he is a good Trainer. He is defeated and departs to continue training. The player battles Silver on [[Mt. Moon]], and though he loses he claims he can feel his Pokémon getting stronger, and resolves to train at [[Dragon's Den]].
Silver's first (and currently only) appearance in the Pokémon video games took place during [[Generation II]]. He was first seen lurking near a window to the Elm Pokémon Laboratory; he later broke in, stealing a Pokémon (the Pokémon that is strongest against the {{player}}'s chosen starter). He later used this Pokémon to battle Gold/Kris, doing this many times as they journeyed through Johto. This is not the only Pokémon he has stolen, as he also stole a {{p|Sneasel}} from a man in [[Cianwood City]], and uses it in battle for the rest of the game.
 
   
Throughout his travels, Silver showed a strong hate for [[Team Rocket]]. He strongly interfered with the revived Team Rocket's plans at least twice, including their experiments with radio signals at the [[Lake of Rage]]. His stated reason for this dislike was that they are "weak" when cornered, and that he only cares about strong opponents. During one of his missions against Team Rocket, Silver apparently fought against Lance, who utterly decimated him. Silver is soon frustrated, as he claims that Lance told him he doesn't love his Pokémon enough. Lance's words are Silver's catalyst, as he begins to metamorphisize into a more kind hearted person. Before a battle at [[Mount Moon]], Silver claims that he has reached his peak, finally understanding what Lance told him in [[Mahogany Town]]. During this battle, he uses a {{p|Crobat}}, which is only obtained when it loves its trainer, displaying that he now truly does care for his Pokémon.
+
After the player has become {{pkmn|Champion}}, Silver can indeed be found training in the Dragon's Den on Tuesday and Thursday, where he cannot be battled. On Monday and Wednesday, he will appear at [[Indigo Plateau]] and will challenge the player to a battle if they appear there. He does not appear at all on Friday or the weekends, indicating that he may in fact take the day off, resting his Pokémon. When battled this seventh and final time at Indigo Plateau, Silver seems to have finally learned to care for his Pokémon properly, as his {{p|Golbat}} has evolved to {{p|Crobat}}, which only occurs when Golbat is very [[friendship|friendly]]. This is further expressed in Generation IV when his [[starter Pokémon]] starts to [[Walking Pokémon|follow him around]], much like the player's Pokémon; Professor Elm even expressly states that Silver's Pokémon have come to trust him when Silver returns to the lab, presumably to return the starter he stole. In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, Lance and [[Clair]] will appear in the Dragon's Den and challenge the player and Silver to a [[Multi Battle]] following the battle at [[Mt. Moon]] giving him the chance to avenge his loss from earlier.
   
Shortly after Gold/Kris defeated the Pokémon League, Silver took up training in the [[Dragon's Den]]. His personality has been likened by the Dragon Master to be similar to [[Clair]]'s. He can be seen there on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and can be challenged at the [[Pokémon League]] on Mondays and Wednesdays. His activities on the weekend are unknown, but now that he is a kinder person, it can be assumed that he does not train on these days.
+
In terms of personality, Silver is initially the darkest of the rivals in the series. While most other rivals are generally good-natured, or at least zestful enough to crack a joke at the player, Silver is (at first) cruel, hateful, power-obsessed and even physically abusive, pushing the {{player}} character around several times. Even after he starts to become kinder, he remains a rather serious individual. He does, however, express genuine happiness when Elm allows him to keep the Pokémon he stole.
  +
  +
Giovanni and Silver's relationship is first alluded to in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, when Team Rocket {{tc|Scientist}} [[Gideon]] at the [[Rocket Warehouse]] on [[Five Island]] asks Red if he is "Giovanni's kid" but concludes he is not, saying that "Giovanni's kid has red hair." More information is revealed in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver when a [[fateful encounter]] {{p|Celebi}} is brought to [[Ilex Forest shrine]]: Celebi takes the player back in time three years to witness Giovanni abandoning Silver to go into seclusion because of his defeat at the hands of {{ga|Red}}. Silver's hate for Team Rocket apparently stems from the failure of his father.
  +
  +
Silver also appears in [[Pokémon Stadium 2]], where he's simply called "Rival". He can be battled in [[White City]] once the player has cleared every [[Stadium Mode]] and the [[Gym Leader Castle]], acting as the final opponent of the game. His [[party]] consists of three [[Legendary Pokémon]] {{cat|Pokémon with a base stat total of 680|with a base stat total of 680}}, which the player is allowed to face with a full party of six Pokémon. Defeating Silver ends the game, and, in Round 1, also unlocks Round 2.

The [[starter Pokémon]] that Silver has will depend on which Pokémon the player chose to bring on Professor Elm's errand at the beginning of the game. As with all [[rival]]s, it will be the Pokémon whose type weakens that of the player's starter.

Silver played no major role in the anime, despite being a main character in the games. His only appearance in the anime was a brief cameo, in the original Japanese opening of ''[[The Legend of Thunder!]]'' ([[A New Oath]]). In this opening, he was shown defeating {{jo|Jimmy}} with his {{p|Nidoking}}, only to be defeated later on when Jimmy's {{p|Cyndaquil}} fully evolved into {{TP|Jimmy|Typhlosion}}.
   
Silver has the following Pokémon in this game:
+
While Silver did not appear in the main series, he was considered by much of the fandom to have a close counterpart in the character of [[Paul]], who was {{Ash}}'s main rival throughout the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}. Like Silver, Paul believed in raising the power of his Pokémon through harsh training as opposed to forming a trusting relationship, which put him at odds with Ash throughout the series. Also, Paul's official art shows him in the same pose as Silver does in one of his official artwork by [[Ken Sugimori]].

==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
* Some fans call him "Kamon" to discern him from {{Special|Silver}}. The name is taken from {{g|Silver}}'s namelist for {{ga|Gold}}, similar to how {{ga|Red}} in {{g|Blue}} is listed with "[[Blue (game)|Gary and Shigeru]]".
+
* A 1997 pamphlet describing {{2v2|Gold|Silver}} mentions that the [[rival]] character lives in the same town as {{ga|Ethan|the protagonist}}. This aspect of his character was apparently discarded by the time of the final release, as his hometown was not elaborated upon in the {{pkmn|games}} and it is implied to not be [[New Bark Town]] since he seems to be unfamiliar with [[Professor Elm]]'s lab at the beginning of the game.
* As a possible reference to Silver's training schedule, {{ga|Pearl}} also can be battled again (on Saturdays and Sundays) after the player becomes champion. He can also be found training at [[Stark Mountain]] during the week in {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}.
+
* In [[Generation IV]], Silver is depicted with two different eye colors. His eyes are gray in his Generation IV artwork while they are red in the HeartGold and SoulSilver games, as seen in the opening animation.
*If Silver's stolen starter is {{p|Totodile}}, he uses {{p|Croconaw}} at level 16 in his second battle, despite Totodile only being able to evolve from level 18 onwards. However, if Silver's stolen starter is {{p|Cyndaquil}}, he uses {{p|Quilava}} at level 32 in his fourth battle, while the other two are their final forms (which is normal).
+
* In the original Gold, Silver, and Crystal games, when battled at Indigo Plateau, the Champion theme is played instead of his rival theme.
*In his anime cameo, his only known Pokémon is a {{p|Nidoking}}. All other game rivals that have made anime appearances have been seen with the {{type2|Water}} starter from their home region, indicating another possible Pokémon for Silver to have (which would also fit in weakening [[Jimmy's Typhlosion]]).
+
* The English script of the {{p|Celebi}} event in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} never states that Silver is Giovanni's son, unlike the Japanese script.
*Two of Silver's Pokémon in his final team received evolutions in [[Generation IV]]. The same two Pokémon are also the only members of his team that did not evolve twice.
+
* Silver has achieved a high score of 2000 at [[Pal Park]], which serves as the default high score.
**Further, {{p|Sneasel}} is the only member of his final team that is not part of a {{cat|Pokémon that are part of a three-stage evolutionary line|three-stage evolutionary line}} as of [[Generation IV]].
+
* In the battle in the Goldenrod Tunnel in the remakes, his team when the player starts with Cyndaquil are all 2 levels higher than the same team he uses if the player were to start with another starter.
  +
* In the original games, at level 16, Silver's Croconaw is underleveled in the second battle, when Totodile usually does not evolve into Croconaw until level 18. This is fixed in the remakes.
  +
**His Haunter was also underleveled at level 20 in the third battle, when Gastly usually does not evolve until level 25. This is fixed in the remakes where instead his Haunter remains a Gastly.
  +
* Silver is the only rival whose team does not change in accordance to his starter, nor does he have any types that cover for his starter's initial type.
  +
* Art of Silver on [[Game Freak]]'s website depicts him with a {{p|Houndoom}}, despite not owning one within the games.
  +
* In the Generation II [[core series]] games, Silver is the only Trainer who doesn't have a {{DL|Pokémon Trainer|Trainer class}}.

'''Silver''' (Japanese: '''シルバー''' ''Silver'') is almost universally used in [[fanon]] as the name for this character, since it is his default name if the {{player}} provides a blank name for him in {{game3|Gold and Silver|Pokémon Gold|s}} and {{game|Crystal}}. Despite this, it should be considered that Pokémon Crystal only shares the default name with Pokémon Gold likely due to the former being specifically developed from the latter, as evidenced by [[Pokémon Crystal beta#Super Game Boy features|development leftovers]]. Furthermore, his default name differs on other games, which call him '''Gold''' (Japanese: '''ゴールド''' ''Gold''){{sup/2|S}}, '''Soul''' (Japanese: '''ソウル''' ''Soul''){{sup/4|HG}}, and '''Heart''' (Japanese: '''ハート''' ''Heart''){{sup/4|SS}}.
   
  +
Some fans call him '''Kamon''' (Japanese: '''カモン''' ''Kamon'') to discern him from {{adv|Silver|his Pokémon Adventures counterpart}} and {{OBP|Silver|SS018|an unrelated anime character}}. This name is taken from the suggested names for {{ga|Ethan}} in both the Japanese and English versions of {{game3|Gold and Silver|Pokémon Silver|s}}; this is similar to some fans calling {{ga|Blue}} "{{Gary}}", since the name is found as one of the options for the {{player}} in international {{game3|Red and Blue|Pokémon Blue|s}} and for the [[rival]] in international {{game3|Red and Blue|Pokémon Red|s}}.

Silver (Japanese: シルバー Silver) is the rival character of Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, playing opposite Ethan, Kris, or Lyra. He is the son of Team Rocket Boss Giovanni.

During the first battle against him in HeartGold and SoulSilver, he is given the unique Trainer class Passerby (Japanese: とおりすがり Passerby) with the placeholder name Boy (Japanese: しょうねん Boy).

In the games

Silver first appears in the Generation II games, lurking outside of Professor Elm's lab, looking through the window. When talked to, he will deny everything and push the player away. During the player's journey to Mr. Pokémon's house, Silver makes his move, stealing one of Elm's two remaining starter Pokémon (coincidentally always the one that is strong against the player's choice). He will meet with the player on the outskirts of Cherrygrove City, battling to get through. A policeman will later ask for the name of the rival, and the rival will be called the name the player gives for the rest of the game.

Silver shows a strong dislike of Team Rocket. He considers them to be weak, and vows to take them, as well as any other weak Trainer, down. He steals a Pokémon from a Trainer in Cianwood City and while Ethan/Kris/Lyra attempts to take down Team Rocket in Mahogany Town and Goldenrod City, he interferes to prove himself. It is in the Mahogany hideout that he meets with Lance, Champion of the Elite Four at Indigo Plateau. Silver challenges Lance and is easily defeated by the dragon Trainer, who then proceeds to berate Silver for his callous ways towards training Pokémon. Though Silver is outraged for losing to someone with such an attitude, the loss and Lance's words ultimately set him on the path to becoming a better person. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, when Team Rocket takes over the Goldenrod Radio Tower, Silver first blows the player's Team Rocket disguise, unaware of the player's plan to sneak in by pretending to be a member of Team Rocket. He later follows the player to the Goldenrod underground and they battle Team Rocket, hoping that Lance will reappear and he can request a rematch.

By the time the player reaches Victory Road, Silver battles against the player not out of malice, but to prove that he is a good Trainer. He is defeated and departs to continue training. The player battles Silver on Mt. Moon, and though he loses he claims he can feel his Pokémon getting stronger, and resolves to train at Dragon's Den.

After the player has become Champion, Silver can indeed be found training in the Dragon's Den on Tuesday and Thursday, where he cannot be battled. On Monday and Wednesday, he will appear at Indigo Plateau and will challenge the player to a battle if they appear there. He does not appear at all on Friday or the weekends, indicating that he may in fact take the day off, resting his Pokémon. When battled this seventh and final time at Indigo Plateau, Silver seems to have finally learned to care for his Pokémon properly, as his Golbat has evolved to Crobat, which only occurs when Golbat is very friendly. This is further expressed in Generation IV when his starter Pokémon starts to follow him around, much like the player's Pokémon; Professor Elm even expressly states that Silver's Pokémon have come to trust him when Silver returns to the lab, presumably to return the starter he stole. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Lance and Clair will appear in the Dragon's Den and challenge the player and Silver to a Multi Battle following the battle at Mt. Moon giving him the chance to avenge his loss from earlier.

In terms of personality, Silver is initially the darkest of the rivals in the series. While most other rivals are generally good-natured, or at least zestful enough to crack a joke at the player, Silver is (at first) cruel, hateful, power-obsessed and even physically abusive, pushing the player character around several times. Even after he starts to become kinder, he remains a rather serious individual. He does, however, express genuine happiness when Elm allows him to keep the Pokémon he stole.

Giovanni and Silver's relationship is first alluded to in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, when Team Rocket Scientist Gideon at the Rocket Warehouse on Five Island asks Red if he is "Giovanni's kid" but concludes he is not, saying that "Giovanni's kid has red hair." More information is revealed in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver when a fateful encounter Celebi is brought to Ilex Forest shrine: Celebi takes the player back in time three years to witness Giovanni abandoning Silver to go into seclusion because of his defeat at the hands of Red. Silver's hate for Team Rocket apparently stems from the failure of his father.

Silver also appears in Pokémon Stadium 2, where he's simply called "Rival". He can be battled in White City once the player has cleared every Stadium Mode and the Gym Leader Castle, acting as the final opponent of the game. His party consists of three Legendary Pokémon with a base stat total of 680, which the player is allowed to face with a full party of six Pokémon. Defeating Silver ends the game, and, in Round 1, also unlocks Round 2.

Pokémon

The starter Pokémon that Silver has will depend on which Pokémon the player chose to bring on Professor Elm's errand at the beginning of the game. As with most rivals, it will be the Pokémon whose type weakens that of the player's starter.
