Continuing from Yellow arc, a boy from New Bark Town, Gold, goes to Prof. Elm for an errand. However, he encounters a trainer, Silver, who steals a Totodile from Elm. Taking a Cyndaquil, he pursues the boy, but is attacked by Team Rocket. Additionally, his Poliwag gets lost. To find them both, Gold takes Prof. Oak's Pokédex. Soon, Gold learns that Totodile grew up on Silver, so decides to defeat Silver one day. After helping a young girl catch a Teddiursa (through a bet from her grandfather), as well as receiving an egg from Elm for a project, Gold meets with a man wearing a mask.
