Pokémon world locations

Mt. Silver (Japanese: シロガネ Mt. Shirogane) is a large mountain in Johto located west of Victory Road and Indigo Plateau. The location is also referred to as Silver Cave (Japanese: シロガネやま Mt. Shirogane) in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal or Mt. Silver Cave (Japanese: シロガネやまどうくつ Mt. Shirogane Cave) in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. Mt. Silver can be reached from Kanto via Route 28 after receiving the sixteen Gym Badges of both Johto and Kanto. At the very summit of Mt. Silver, the player may battle Red. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Moltres can also be found here.

A field based on Mt. Silver also appears in Pokémon Stadium 2's Kanto Gym Leader Castle.

In the anime, it is the home of Silver Town, where the Johto League's Silver Conference is held.

Geography

In the games, Mt. Silver is off-limits to all but the most skilled of Trainers. After the player has received all sixteen badges of Johto and Kanto, Professor Oak will give the player permission to travel here.

The route to the area is rough, though no HMs are explicitly required to reach the Pokémon Center just outside the entrance. Inside, however, the cave is dark, requiring Flash to see in the first room. Many high-level Pokémon reside in the cave, as well as rare Pokémon not found elsewhere in the Johto region, like Larvitar and Misdreavus.

The cave has only one entrance, unlike all other caves found in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, but goes deep into the mountain. In the cave's final room, the player will encounter Red, who will wordlessly challenge the player to what is the highest-leveled Trainer battle in the Pokémon series.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Mt. Silver is much larger than before. Flash is no longer needed to light up the cave. The higher sections of the cave, where Red is located, require Rock Climb to be accessible. At times, the player must also venture onto the slopes on the mountain's sides in order to climb higher. In addition, a heavy snowfall is present at the summit, which assumes the hail weather condition in battle; this weather can become diamond dust on certain days.

In the anime

Mt. Silver in the anime

Ash and his friends planned to travel to Mt. Silver for the upcoming Silver Conference, though the addition of Larvitar to the group gave them another reason to pass through the mountainous area.

They reached the base of Mt. Silver in You're a Star, Larvitar!, and stopped off at the local Pokémon Center. Already competitors for the upcoming Silver Conference were gathering in droves, and Ash had a practice match against another Pokémon Master hopeful, Satchel.

In Mother of All Battles!, the group reached Larvitar's home, the Mt. Silver Pokémon Preserve. After defeating the troublesome Pokémon Poacher Brothers, Larvitar was reunited with its mother, Tyranitar. Ranger Mason and crew protect the preservation area, and were pleased to have finally arrested Braggo and his gang.

In Pop Goes The Sneasel, the group stopped off at the local Ho-Oh Shrine after the attendant reported a Sneasel, Machop, and Machoke were stopping anyone from reaching the Sacred Flame, which was needed for the opening of the Silver Conference. Harrison, a Trainer from the Hoenn region, assisted Ash and his friends in defeating the trio of wild Pokémon, and went on to catch the Sneasel for himself.

Ash and his friends reached Silver Town, the host city of the Silver Conference, in A Claim to Flame!. The city boasts at least 30 inhabitants, but the Johto League's yearly tournament brings a large amount of tourism to the city. The event wrapped up by Johto Photo Finish.
