In Ecruteak City, Silver awakens. Before Silver leaves to follow Gold, who is pursuing a figure, Morty uses his Mystical Eyes to locate the remaining thirteen Plates, marking them on a map and then collapsing from exhaustion.
Silver sends out his Weavile, who gets in contact with all the other Weavile and Sneasel in Johto to help obtain the Plates. As Silver takes to the air with Honchkrow, he uses the Pokégear that Crystal gave him to call Gold. Silver tells him that he will join Gold's fight against Arceus once he's gathered all the Plates.
