Re: A Silent Ash
He does not speak because he is a former main Character. Main game characters rarely ever speak, and since Red never spoke in RBY when you played as him they decided not to have him speak when you battle him either.
He's made out to be the strong, silent type.
As long as we continue to fight, and destroy, we are forever prisoners of our ignorance and foolishness; true 'freedom' does not exist
