[[File:Silver anime.png‎|thumb|left|Silver in the anime]]
Like {{ga|Brendan}}, {{ga|Lucas}} and {{ga|Ethan}}, he played no role in the anime, despite being a main character in the games. Similarly, his only appearance in the anime is a brief cameo, in the original Japanese opening of ''[[The Legend of Thunder!]]'' ([[A New Oath]]), where he was shown defeating {{jo|Jimmy}} with his {{p|Nidoking}}, only to be defeated later on when Jimmy's Cyndaquil evolves into Typhlosion.
 
While Silver did not appear in the main series, he was considered by many people to have a close counterpart in the character of [[Paul]], who made his debut in [[DP002|the second episode]] of the ''[[Diamond and Pearl series]]'' and was {{Ash}}'s main rival throughout that series. Like Silver, Paul believed in raising the power of his Pokémon through harsh training as opposed to forming a trusting relationship which put him at odds with Ash throughout the series. Also, Paul's official art shows him in the same pose as Silver does in one of his official [[Sugimori Art]].==Counterparts==

While not appearing directly, he has a counterpart in the [[Pokémon Adventures]] manga, {{adv|Silver}}. They share several similarities, such as stealing a starter from Professor Elm (in the manga's case, Totodile), owning a Sneasel, and being [[Giovanni]]'s son.
