Leader Chad is the Leader of Silvent Gym. He is the first Gym Leader that the player faces in his or her Roria journey, giving out Arc Badge when defeated. His Gym specializes in Electric-type Pokémon, forcing players who picked Water-type Starter Pokémon or have many Flying-type Pokémon in their party to be on the alert.
Chad is the owner and DJ of Silvent Gym. He designed it to be a club, where many dancers and party bouncers can be seen dancing on the lower level. The player only has access to the upper level of this Gym, where 2 of Chad's Bouncers will challenge the player, and he or she also needs to get through a couple sets of dancing pads installed by Chad, without stepping on the same pad twice.
Chad faces the player in his studio, where he plays music for dancers in the club. He brings only 2 Pokémon and they do not have dangerous Electric-type attacks like Thunderbolt or Thunder, given that this is merely the player's first Gym Battle. Nevertheless, there are players who chose Water-type Starter Pokémon, and it is also rather common for players to have a few Flying-type Pokémon in party at the beginning of this game, so they are still advised to be cautious, especially that Chad's Shinx has Spark in its arsenal and can combine it with Charge to boost the damage output. On the other hand, his Pikachu can use Charge Beam, which gradually adds up its Special Attack stat. After the player emerges victorious, Chad gives Arc Badge to him or her, along with TM57 Charge Beam.
Chad has a go-with-the-flow kind of attitude, making him a very adaptable person that does not get angry often. He likes keeping the reputation of his Gym up and loves seeing new trainers at his Gym. He also likes to help Trainers along their path to becoming Pokemon Masters.

"Hello. I'm Chad, the creator and leader of this fine establishment. I see you have no badges yet. That makes this your first battle for a Gym Badge. Don't expect me to go easy on you. My club has a reputation that I like to keep by making my badges difficult to earn. Now, get ready for the drop!"
- After defeating Chad: "You beat me fair and square. Maybe I should have played a different beat."
"Well congratulations on your victory, trainer! It is my pleasure to now present to you your first Gym Badge." (Gives player Arc Badge) "I would also like for you to take this TM as a gift for your victory." (Gives player TM57 Charge Beam) "This TM contains the move Charge Beam. TMs are an excellent way to make your Pokémon stronger. TMs contain battle moves that Pokémon are capable of learning. In this case, TM57, or Charge Beam, is an Electric-type move that has a special side effect that can boost your Pokémon's Special Attack. The Arc Badge allows you to use HM1 Cut outside of battle. It also allows you to trade for Pokémon up to level 20. Thank you for stopping my club. That was a very entertaining battle."
- If talked to after the Gym Battle: "This club is hopping at night. Challengers like you always energize the other club members."
