Silvally (シルヴァディ Shiruvadi) is a Normal-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

Biology

Physiology

Aside from the removal of its helmet, Silvally differs little from its pre-evolution. Its crested, bird-like head is revealed, possessing a metallic beak, two bolts on either side of its head, pointed red ears and a crest on its head resembling a cockatoo's. The fur around its neck and the fin on its tail also turn from gray to white upon evolving.

Behavior

Despite being a rough Pokémon, it trusts its Trainer who will do anything to protect them when they face dangers. The weight of the helmet slowed it down, and upon its removal, Silvally's speed increases substantially.

Natural Abilities

As it was based on a "Pokémon spoken of in mythology" in legends from Sinnoh libraries (heavily implied to be Arceus), it possesses great power as it was created as a chimerical fusion of cells from all 18 types. As such, with the use of its Ability, RKS System, Silvally can change between types when holding a Memory Disc.

Appearances

Anime

Silvally first appeared in SM049: Mission: Total Recall!, where it evolved from Gladion's Type: Null where it was trying to save Lillie from Faba. This also helps Lillie remember that Silvally was the one who saved her from the Ultra Beast Nihlego in the past, which results in Lillie being able to touch Pokémon again.

Supporting

Trivia

  • Technically, Silvally (then called Type: Full) came before Type: Null as it was too powerful to control and such fitted with a helmet to limit its power.
    • This may be a canon example of devolution.
  • Silvally's base experience yield in the original Alola games was 114. It has been boosted to 257 since.
  • According to the dex entry, the name "Silvally" is made by Gladion himself.
  • Silvally itself appears unchanged upon evolution, only removing its helmet and turning its tail and mane white. This is similar to Slowbro in which a Shellder attaches to Slowpoke and makes it bipedal but otherwise changes very little.
  • While Silvally is a mechanical creature with Memory Discs and a disc reader system its official descriptions mention cells, implying that Silvally is composed partly of organic tissues and partly of cybernetic parts, making it a cyborg.
  • Silvally was officially confirmed to be a Legendary Pokémon on October 16, 2017.[1]
    • Silvally is the only formerly non-legendary Pokémon to acquire the legendary status.
  • Silvally is similar to Arceus as both are Normal-type Pokémon that, thanks to their ability, can change type if they hold a certain item. Their coloring is also similar as their normal forms are often covered in white and their shiny forms turn into a shiny gold color.
    • Furthermore, both have a unique move (Judgment and Multi-Attack) which their ability affects, allowing them to gain STAB for every type they are.
  • Despite being programmed in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon to be able to learn all three Pledge moves, Silvally can only legitimately be taught Grass Pledge.

Origin

Silvally is based on a chimera. It also incorporates elements of cyborgs as well as gryphons and heraldic eagles. The bolts on either side of its head may be a reference to Frankenstein's Monster, while the shape of its crest may also draw inspiration from a cockatoo. Backstory-wise, it may also be based on the EVA units from Neon Genesis Evangelion, both being cyborgs designed to fight bizarre, incredibly powerful creatures (the Ultra Beasts in Silvally's case, the Angels in the EVA units' case).

Its RKS System Ability is based on Arceus' Multitype.

Etymology

Silvally comes from silver and ally.

Names in other languages

  • English, Italian and Spanish: Silvally
  • French: Silvallié
  • German: Amigento
  • Chinese: 银伴战兽 (Mainland, simplified) / 銀伴戰獸 (Mainland, traditional / Taiwan)
  • Korean: 실버디
