The rival for the Johto/Generation 2 games and their remakes. A very unkind trainer who stole his starter as well as his Sneasel. He is a very serious, very angry character and the son to Sakaki (Pokémon), which may explain where his attitude comes from. He hates Team Rocket, as well as anyone or anything (namely Pokémon) he sees as weak. As the story progresses, Silver realizes the error of his ways and learns to treat Pokémon and people better.
Silver has made no appearance in the anime but had an episode in the Generation shorts, where he is voiced by Ohsaka Ryouta/Lucien Dodge.
