Pokémon SoulSilver takes players on an adventure around the Johto Region.

The plot of Pokémon SoulSilver is similar in many ways to the story of Pokémon Silver, with only minor changes. The player gets to choose between two playable characters, Ethan or Lyra. As either Ethan or Lyra, the player embarks on an exciting adventure across the Johto region, fighting in various gyms and eventually the Pokémon League. Silver, the main villain in the game, shows disdain for Team Rocket and vows to take them over, believing them to be weak. Silver will battle the player many times throughout the game, not because of malice, but to prove he is a good trainer. By the end of the game, the player defeats Team Rocket, breaking up their leaders, and enters the Hall of Fame.

Professor Elm: Professor Elm is the Pokémon professor of New Bark Town of the Johto Region. He is responsible for giving the player their first starter Pokémon. Silver steals one of his starters at the beginning of the game. 

Silver: Silver takes on the role of the villain. He vows to destroy Team Rocket, believing them to be weak. Silver abuses his Pokémon, lacks empathy, and has trouble accepting defeat in battle.

Pokemon SoulSilver Cheat Codes

To use cheat codes in Pokémon SoulSilver, players must first enable cheats on their Nintendo DS. The most popular way is to use an Action Replay device. An Action Replay is a simple device that goes into the game slot of a Nintendo DS, enabling cheats and cheat codes for a select game. Before entering cheat codes using an Action Replay device, it is best to save the game file, as cheat codes can easily corrupt or glitch a game. 

Another option for enabling cheat codes is to use an emulator. An emulator is a PC version of a console game like Pokémon SoulSilver, distributed on the Nintendo DS. These emulators have a menu option for inputting cheat codes. The most popular emulator used for Pokémon Nintendo DS games is the DeSmME emulator.
