140px-HeartGold SoulSilver Silver

Silver is a rival character that appears in the Pokémon Tales series, first debuting in Pokémon Tales: Brendan.

History Edit

Not much is yet known about Silver's past. He first meets Ian when Ian finds him battling another trainer, and wants to battle the tough looking trainer. Silver thought the battle was a waste of time, but went along with it due to Ian's provoking him. Silver doesn't give his name during this time, but he drops a glove during the battle, which has his name etched into it.

Ian makes an assumption, based on Silver's personality, name, and Pokémon, that he is the brother of Cobalt, a higher up in Team Rocket. It was later proved to be correct, Silver being his younger brother. Silver, as a young child, was given a Cubone as his starter, expected to battle his brother for a spot in Team Rocket. After losing, he was neglected and eventually disowned.

He reveals that he tried to battle Cobalt at the incident at Indigo Plateau at Team Rocket's attack. Cobalt overpowers him easily and escapes. This creates a rivalry, for both Silver and Marowak, to defeat all other Marowak. Silver reveals his past to Ian due to recognizing his strength, which Cobalt also recognizes and respects.
