Gamehiker Wiki:Today's featured article/July 2009
From Gamehiker WikiSilver is the name given to the rival character who is featured in the second generation Pokémon games Pokémon: Gold, Silver and Crystal Versions, as well as in the upcoming fourth generation remakes Pokémon: HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions. His goal is to wipe out the weak so that the strong can rule.
Silver is Gold's mysterious red-headed rival who steals one of three starter Pokémon from Professor Elm's lab (out of Chikorita, Cyndaquil and Totodile, whichever has a type advantage against the player's starter Pokémon) and sets off on his own Pokémon journey. He treats his Pokémon like weapons and also has a vendetta against Team Rocket. However, in traditional Pokémon fashion, he eventually learns from the player how to treat his Pokémon better. Little is known about his past, but rumors supported by in-game evidence support that he is the son of Giovanni, villain of the previous generation's games.
