Pokemon - Quest for Lance is a Pokémon manga starring "Gold" Richards on his traves across Johto and Hoenn. More specifically, it is based on HGSS and Emerald. Although it was made in America, it was created simultaneously in both American and Japanese and came out in Japan first. This method allows localisation and translation to occur during development so there will not be too much wait before the volume comes out in America. It was created at the same time as Paper Mario vs. Bowser, which led to the characters from Quest for Lance appearing in a volume of PMvB
- "Gold" Richards, the main character of the comic. His real name is not known, but he comes from a rich family. Despite this, his life has not been so lucky. Debuts in Volume 1.
- "Silver" Engun, Gold's rival (and later friend). Silver also comes from a rich family, although he does not know much about it. At first glance Gold thought he was a troublemaker, but he later found out that Silver was working against Archer. Debuts in Volume 2.
