|"…You won, fair and square. I admit it. But this isn't the end. I'm going to be the greatest Pokémon Trainer ever. Because these guys are behind me. …Listen, Gold. One of these days I'm going to prove how good I am by beating you."
|Silver's life has been very rough. Abandoned by his birth mother, he was soon placed into an orphanage, where he spent six miserable years among his parentless peers. It was a harsh life, as the children often had to compete for everything-- food, toys, friends, beds, attention-- and it was soon made clear that the young Silver was absolutely not capable of beating the others to get the best. However, instead of relying solely on stealth and tricks, Silver was determined to best his rivals as soon as possible.
Though he had many ups and downs in the orphanage, he was adopted at age 7 by a peculiar couple. Unfortunately for Silver, luck was not on his side; he was the last attempt at saving a failing marriage. It was soon made clear that all their anger toward each other soon was focused soley on him, as he became their scapegoat. Silver endured abuse of all sorts for three miserable years from the both of them without much reprieve in sight until at age ten, he finally was able to run away from home. He soon found himself in New Bark Town, eyeing the pokemon lab and the alluring treasures inside. With a pokemon, he'd be able to go out and carve a place for himself. With a pokemon, he would stop being a fucking welcome mat. People would listen to him.
His goal set, it was easy enough to steal a Totodile from the mousey professor, and off he went. He trained his new companion mercilessly, catching more and adding to his power. It was a feeling he'd never experienced before-- the feeling of being in absolute control. They were listening to him. They obeyed him. To a kid who knew of nothing but oppression and abuse, this was an experience that changed him. Drunk on his newfound power, he sought more and more of it only to be occasionally dashed away by a rival boy named Gold. Gold was a naive brat, but each and every time they clashed, the dumbass always managed to arrive on top, spurring Silver's spite and loathing.
It didn't matter-- he'd just get better. Silver tore his way through the Johto region, his pokemon dutifully obeying his commands at every turn as he destroyed gym after gym. When people cried out for his help when Rocket took over, Silver couldn't be bothered. He had better things to do; it was their fault for getting taken over in the first place. When a Gym Leader he'd already beaten called out for his help, he ignored her pleas, as sympathy and caring was weak. He couldn't be weak again. He couldn't go back to what he was again. 'Let the thing die already and move on to a pokemon worth your time.' But as he left those crying for help behind him, he couldn't help but feel the pang of jealousy as they clamored and praised Gold once he did what Silver had not.
Strangely enough, as he traveled, he seemed to always find his way back to Gold. But later on, Gold was no longer alone. A strange man, accompanied by Dragon pokemon, consistently thrashed his team, even worse than what Gold had ever accomplished. Humiliated, Silver could only try to vent his frustrations out onto his rival, who only pummeled him down as well. Infuriated, Silver left to train harder, determined to beat the two men that were constantly making his life hell. Things soon came to a head as the Lake of Rage nearly exploded with angry Gyarados, attracting Silver to its waters to witness the event. As he watched from afar, he couldn't help but feel a strange feeling toward the forcefully-evolved Gyarados; they were stronger now. Wasn't that better? Weren't they better off for it? If they were, though, then why were they so angry? Why were they in such pain?
The thought was disturbing and hit a little too close to home. Once more, he focused on training his pokemon as well as himself, pushing all of them to the limits as they steady climbed through Victory Road. Of course, it didn't take long for Gold to catch up and once again destroy them effortlessly. It was too much. The Dragon-Master's words, Gold's unflinching prowess, the Gyarados... This was wrong. What he was doing, what he was forcing upon his pokemon... For the first time, he looked upon them as equals, as kin, and was ashamed of himself. He'd become what he had so viciously tried to defeat. A monster.
Silver took time in Kanto much slower, trying to learn who his pokemon were and foster real relationships with them. While it was slow-going at first, his pokemon and he blossomed with the newfound perspective and together, they grew much stronger. For a long while, Silver was almost content with his life, save the nagging hate that he reserved for those that had initially made his life hell. But soon, as he continued to travel, he was contacted by a still in-hiding Giovanni. Their reuinion was brief but overwhelming as he learned his true lineage and what awaited him as an inheritance. Furious, he rejected Giovanni and left, eager to distance himself from such a coward.
There was a time of peace that Silver enjoyed along with his Pokemon. But as the years crept on, so did hushed rumors that soon turned to violent shrieks of terror. The Epidemic was quick and merciless upon his homeland, but Silver and his pokemon were not the sort to surrender. They have vigilantly been survivng by being nomadic through the now ruins of Johto, living each day one hour at a time.
|Silver has somehow managed to keep himself and his pokemon relatively healthy. It certainly hasn't been for lack of trying, though. Ever determined to be the best he can be, he keeps himself and his pokemon dutifully trained. He sports a lean, lithe frame and shoulder-cropped red hair. His skin is fairly pale and burns easily, but that often isn't a problem in the temperate climate of Johto.
-Major trust issues. Often doesn't confide in anyone but his own pokemon, and even then it's not a complete guarantee.
-Cold and distant to strangers
-Often unwilling to invest himself in others; takes a lot for him to open up
-Often expects and prepares for the worst
-Rarely allows himself to enjoy something good
-Dark sense of humor
-Silver has a lot of hate built up within him, and it does lead to a very nasty temper more often than not. While he's aware of this flaw, he also knows there's little he can do about it until he is able to move on.
-It's mostly directed at Giovanni and Ariana themselves, but he can and will lash out at others if his fury reaches higher and higher levels.
-Not good at hiding his emotions
-Gets carried away with them often
-He does have a wide emotional range, but tends to try and stifle the "weaker" ones [sadness, happiness, etc.] more frequently.
-Emotionally stunted; is sometimes not entirely sure how to express a certain emotion, which leads to more outbursts of frustration
-Resolute little shit right here. Doesn't take "no" for an answer. When he wants something, by God, he'll fucking get it.
-Willing to put himself through hell to get what he wants or needs.
-Resourceful; is able to use what little he has to his advantage
-Has a mind for strategy
-Sharp wit and sharper tongue
-Unafraid to speak his mind.
-The more blunt, the better.
-Almost has an instinct to challenge authority figures; doesn't often cedede to their orders unless he sees them as worthy of his obedience
-Never really relaxes; this contributes to his high amount of frustration
-A bit paranoid
-A lifetime of having to compete for the things he needed has taken a toll on him, causing every interaction with another human being to be a fight or contest of some sort.
-Absolutely not charitable. Hoarding tendencies.
-Long time rival; knows now that Gold is a magnificent trainer, despite being a dipshit. It's frustrating to Silver how Gold can so effortlessly be good, but it only fuels his own determination to be better.
Giovanni and Ariana
-Estranged parents. While he has had some contact with Giovanni -that was not well-recieved- he has had even less with his mother. He loathes both of them very, very much.
-While he wasn't ever truly fond of the man, he appreciated the lesson Lance taught to him. Silver is grateful to have been turned around from a merciless slave-driver to being a true trainer and friend.
| -Adopted, but changed dramatically. Will be restarting post count.
-Loathes Team Rocket and his affiliation with them
|#757|| Salandit, the Toxic Lizard Pokemon
|It burns its bodily fluids to create a poisonous gas. When its enemies become disoriented from inhaling the gas, it attacks them.
|Corrosion: Corrosion allows the user to inflict poison on any Pokémon regardless of type, allowing them to poison Poison and Steel-type Pokémon. This Ability has no effect on Toxic Spikes. It does not allow the Pokémon with this Ability to poison a Pokémon with Immunity, nor can the Pokémon with this Ability damage Steel-types with Poison-type moves. If a move is reflected by the target of the Pokémon with this Ability due to Magic Coat or Magic Bounce, the reflected move will not be able to poison Steel- or Poison-type Pokémon.

|SEE, STUFF HAPPENED
MAYBE MORE THINGS
|"Salandit is a small, black Pokémon resembling a salamander or lizard. Its body is dark gray with a black head and feet. Along its back and down its tail is an orange-red line. This marking splits into short lines with round tips on its back. At the base of its neck are two short, flat spines. Its eyes are light purple with slit pupils and there are several tooth-like protrusions along its upper jaw. Each foot has four pointed toes.
From the base of its tail, Salandit can emit both a toxic gas and flames. The gas has a sweet odor that causes dizziness. The female can also release pheromones that attract males of all species, including humans. Additionally, these pheromones may cause opponents to be controlled by this Pokémon's will. While it is not a powerful Pokémon, it is able to unbalance opponents with its cunning techniques."
