Webster (Johto)

Webster (Japanese: ユウジ Yūji), known as Randy in Generation II, is a non-player character in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal as well as their remakes, HeartGold and SoulSilver. He is a guard posted at the gate between Goldenrod City and Route 35.

Webster gives the player his Spearow named Kenya (Japanese: ひきゃく Hikyaku) holding a mail, and asks him or her to deliver it to his friend on Route 31. As a gesture of thanks, he will give the player a HP Up. Once the mail has been delivered, Webster's friend will hand out TM50 (Nightmare) in Generation II or TM44 (Rest) in Generation IV. It does not matter which Pokémon is given to Webster's friend, just that the mail is delivered. In Generation II, if the player removes the mail from Kenya, putting it in their computer, then gives the mail to another Pokémon, Webster's friend will take the mail and Pokémon from them. In Generation IV, however, any Pokémon replacing Kenya will be returned to the player. Due to this, a player may keep Kenya for the duration of the game or deliver it after evolving it into Fearow and still receive the TM.

In the game, Webster is recognized as an in-game trader. However, Kenya is simply given to the player and no Pokémon is expected in return. Unlike most Pokémon given by NPCs, Kenya has Webster's ID and OT, possibly because the player was meant to give the Spearow to Webster's friend. Hence, when battling with it, it will act like an outsider and receive the experience boost for traded Pokémon.
