While Gold is entertaining and funny, which totally excuses him being a static character.
He doesn't suck. And I think he, unlike Gold, IS interesting. My only two problems with her are:Silver does suck, though.
1. We never get to see him develop in the way his game counterpart did (from "bad" to "good"), as that happens offscreen with his meeting of Lance and accepting "work" from him.
2. Again, he's limited any time he's stuck with Gold, as Gold is an unchanging character and thus can't inspire much change in Silver. Silver was better in the FRLG arc, away from Gold.
Hahahahahahaha....I am serious.Hahahaha! Pretty funny joke there. I almost thought you were serious! Especially after what you said concerning Gold and Silver being limited.
Being skilled at something from the beginning does NOT equate to not being able to develop as a character. Crystal was a pro from the start, but it did NOT stop her from developing as a character. If you paid attention to "her blah arc", instead of brushing it off just because it's the first time a girl has been in the lead role (I mean, a girl that we KNOW is a girl the whole way through) you'd see that she grows partly because she's a pro from the start, which leads to a big failure shaking her up more than it would otherwise and her having to re-evaluate everything about herself. She also learns to take her job less seriously afterward, less that bout of depression ever repeat itself.
While Gold....learns he's good at hatching Pokemon eggs. Yeah, big change.
Someone said Gold is Davis from Digimon done right. I disagree. He's Davis done wrong AGAIN.
