Played through Pokemon HG/SS and I realized that I really missed Silver.

I didn't like him as a kid, I thought he's terribly rude and way too violent to people and his pokémon, that's pretty gross.

As I've matured and thought about the character more, I've really grown fond of his story and growth as a trainer. His association with Team Rocket is really fascinating.
I really liked thinking about how he'd redeem himself and fix all his mistakes, and that's where this fanart came from. ♥

Pixel Star (free to use) Why Meganium exactly?
- I kept thinking about using Crobat, since his Golbat in fact does evolve into one, and Golbat evolves only through max friendship.
But, I wanted to draw his starter in this, because that's usually the longest friendship any trainer has with their pokemon

Pixel Star (free to use) Now, why is Meganium his starter?
- Because Feraligatr is OP as hell in HG/SS and can literally solo the whole game, I'll take it thanks. :P
- I guess Meganium's more huggable too.

I played Crystal on the Virtual Console recently after not touching a Johto game in almost 15 years and I totally got the same impression. I love Silver's expression here and the soft look/colours
