Anime episode: "A New Oath"

Silver (Japanese: シルバー Silver) is a character from Pokémon Gold and Silver and their remakes. He acts as the rival of the game, occasionally challenging, taunting and arriving just in time to stop whatever the player was doing. He is the son of Giovanni, who was long rumored to be his father. He also has a deep hatred for Team Rocket due to his father leaving him to go do strenuous training after his loss to Red.

In the Anime

Pokemon

At first, Silver likes to steal other trainers' Pokémon rather than capture his own, like the starter that has a type advantage to the player's and a Sneasel from Cianwood City, but he eventually learns to take care of his Pokémon properly, as seen by the fact that he has a Crobat.

Trivia

  • Silvercloseup

    Silver in the opening of the game.

    Some hackers know how to play as Silver, though it is not recommended as it is hacking and it may cause damage to the game.
  • Despite Magneton and Sneasel gaining evolutions in Generation IV, Silver's Magneton and Sneasel do not evolve into their final forms when battled at their highest levels. This may be due to Magneton needing Mt. Coronet to evolve and Sneasel needing a Razor Claw.
  • Silver's team in Pokémon Stadium 2 consisted of Mewtwo, Lugia and Ho-oh, all of them being legendary Pokémon.
  • SIlver's eye color in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver differs between the artwork and the game. In the artwork, his eyes are grey, while in the game opening, his eyes are red.
  • During the special Celebi event, Silver is found in the past arguing with his Father.
  • Before it was revealed that Silver is Giovanni's son, in FireRed and LeafGreen, when Red confronts a Rocket Scientist, he mistook the former for Giovanni's son, only to remember that his son had red hair.
  • In the game and Pokémon Adventure, Silver is Giovanni's son. However, in the anime, Silver (the rival who appeared in the Japanese opening of Legend of Thunder) was never mentioned to be Giovanni's son and neither Giovanni did mention about his son in the anime.
  • It is unknown if Silver hates Team Rocket in the anime, just like his game counterpart.
  • Silver may well be Giovanni's son.
