Raising the Stakes with Rhyperior/VS Rhyperior (Japanese: VSドサイドン VS Dosidon or 大地の継承! Inheritor of the Ground!) is the 449th round of the Pokémon Adventures manga.

Plot

Silver realizes that each of the sixteen plates represent a Pokémon type, excluding the Normal type. During Crystal's battle against Ariana, Silver gives his Rhyperior the Earth Plate, which makes it deliver an astoundingly powerful Ground-type attack against Ariana. After that, Silver runs off to the Ecruteak Gym, leaving Crystal to finish the battle herself.

Once he arrived, Silver was confronted by Bugsy, Falkner, and Chuck, so he told them he was here to see Morty. In the past, however, many others had already broken into the gym and forced Morty to look into the future, so Silver had to prove himself a worthy visitor. His Sneasel could easily battle Bugsy's Kakuna and Falkner's Noctowl, but was defeated by a Triple Kick from Chuck's Hitmontop. Silver then sends out Rhyperior. Both Rhyperior and Hitmontop use their horns to fight each other, until they stopped all of a sudden. It was revealed that Hitmontop actually recognizes Rhyperior, because it had once battled its pre-evolved form against Blue.

Silver explains how he obtained his Rhyperior. After the Hoenn Battle Frontier Tournament, Silver went with Blue to the eighteenth hideout in Kanto, because he had sent his Ursaring there to take care of Giovanni, his wounded father. However, when he showed up that time, neither Giovanni nor Ursaring was there. Silver told Blue that he managed to decipher Secrets of the Land, and wanted to use that book to make Blue's Rhydon more powerful. Thus, he traded with Blue, and obtained Rhyperior that had just evolved from Rhydon.

Upon hearing about Silver's connection with Blue, Chuck allows Silver to enter the gym. Meanwhile, Morty was already with Gold. Because it was difficult for Morty to describe his thoughts in words, he decided to sketch them instead. Suddenly, Silver shows up at the door, so Morty asks him who he is. Silver shows Morty his Pokédex, and was allowed to proceed into the gym. Finally, Gold and Silver both meet each other, each with the intent of hearing Morty's thoughts for the future.
