The Mt. Silver Training Chapter (Part 2) (シロガネ山修業編 《後編》) is the 2nd part of the special chapter of Pokémon Adventures, released in Pokémon the Comic.
Red approaches the attackers, Venusaur and Poliwrath, with a strategy involving Pika. After rescuing Pibu, Red and Gold train for a while before parting ways.
Red yells his enemies to appear. Red soon encounters a wild Poliwrath and a wild Venusaur, the latter holding Pibu as hostage. Pika is a bit scared and Red senses Poliwrath and Venusaur are allied with each other and will attempt to take Pibu away. Pika jumps to attack them and nearly dodges Poliwrath and Venusaur's attacks. Red restrains Pika and tries to calm him down, for he found a pattern. While Poliwrath attacks and dodges some spots, Venusaur launches Razor Leaf to attack the missed spots. Red thinks such a combo move cannot be seen among wild Pokémon, suspecting this is due to Mt. Silver's environment. Red does not know why Poliwrath and Venusaur wanted them to come here, but decides to accept their challenge.
Red notices Pika is feeling depressed. Thinking Pika is depressed because he couldn't sense his enemy's moves, Red laughs and calls Pika back in his Poké Ball. Pika is angry, but Red calms him down, for he has a plan to rescue Pibu and asks Pika to remain silent and still. Red approaches Venusaur and Poliwrath slowly, knowing they react at sudden moves. Red walks to them and with Pika building up electricity, Red sends Pika out of the Poké Ball, using Iron Tail on Venusaur and Thunderbolt on Poliwrath. Red escapes with Pibu and comes to the director and Gold. Not soon after, Gold, Red and the director have a bath in a hot spring. Gold watches Red and finds it hard to believe Red becomes from easy-going to serious in a moment. Knowing that in mind, Gold hopes to defeat Red one day.
After some days, Gold and Red are at Red's house. Red finds a magazine and recalls Gold ordered Pibu to use "Super Rising Thunder" on the Masked Man. Gold thought with a powerful name, Pibu would also launch a devastating attack, which was powered up by Raikou. Red shows Gold the magazine, which states Lt. Surge and Wattson have discovered the Volt Tackle, a new move, which certain electric-type Pokémon can use. Gold is glad and is given Red's insulated gloves. Gold is pleased, for he can train with Pibu on mastering Volt Tackle, as Gold puts on the gloves. Gold notices a poster of a Charizard called "Lizardon". Red explains an old acquaintance has given him the poster from a far-away land, where they call Charizard as "Lizardon". Gold smirks, thinking in that land the attack is called "Super Rising Thunder". Red leaves, for he has to go meet up with Green.
Gold watches the TV, as there are reports, from Mossdeep Research Center, of a virus in outer space, which is investigated by a rocket. Gold thinks such things are beyond him, but wonders if there are Pokémon in outer space. Red runs with Pika and asks him to be by his side in the most difficult times. Pika accepts and Red is happy to know Pika will lend him the strength to carry on, as they rush towards new adventures.
This chapter tells that Pokémon overseas are named differently, as Charizard is named Lizardon.
