If you were looking for Salvadore, one of Brock's younger brothers, see Brock's siblings.


Salvador (Japanese: サブロウ Saburō) is a character of the day and a Pokémon Trainer from Cherrygrove City who was Ash's first opponent in the Silver Conference.

Salvador appeared in A Claim to Flame!, where he was up against Ash during the Athlete's Round of the Silver Conference. The computer randomly selected Ash to go first, and Salvador sent out his Furret to battle Ash's Pikachu.

Ash was confident, but Furret turned out to be a very tough opponent. It used its speed to dodge Pikachu's attacks, and it confused the Electric-type by using Dig over and over again. Ash finally told Pikachu to grab on to Furret's back, where it used Thunderbolt to defeat Furret and give Ash the victory.

It is not known if Salvador won his other two battles in the Athlete's Round, and therefore it is not known if he moved on in the Silver Conference.

He reappeared in a flashback in Love, Pokémon Style.
