In the past, Alder's starter Pokémon, died of illness, and in despair over not being able to save it, he began traveling around aimlessly. Before his partner's death, the two of them madly pursued strength, much in the way of Cheren. The identity of this Pokémon is never mentioned. However, it seems its death changed the way Alder looks at life. Also, Ghetsis's dialogue suggests that he may not have actually won the title of Champion, instead being requested by the Pokémon League to take the position.
In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Iris took over Alder's place of Champion. He can be found assisting the player at various points of the game. When visited at the Pokemon World Tournament, he reveals that his late partner was a Larvesta, which later evolved into Volcarona.

It was a Larvesta.

i think it was his volcaneros baby maybe he wanted it to grow faster and left it a t a daycare and it layed a  egg and then died after Alder returned and Alder took care of it
Not a larvesta. Such a cute little guy. :'(
It said on bulbapedia before b/w2 that his starter was actually said to be 1 of the unova starters but obviously thats b/w1
Never heard of a Pokemon dying, but that's still pretty sad. Now I'm paranoid about my Volcarona XD
Gary's ratticate died too :(
the story of gary's raticate dead is just a rumor, I believe
but you can meet a guy in FRLG who's onix is dead
Yes the tectonix
And the poor Marowak in the Pokemon Tower . . .
And don't forget Lucario in the movie.
