Ein (Japanese: ボルグ Borg) is one of the original four Cipher Admins. A cruel and callous young scientist, he is long on ambition and short on emotion. He is obsessed with the idea of creating an insanely powerful Pokémon at any cost.

Ein is the brains behind the process that creates Shadow Pokémon. His research, the "Ein Files", have been littered across Orre wherever members of Team Snagem or Cipher trekked. He created Shadow Pokémon in a secluded lab in the middle of a desert, and shipped the Pokémon to Venus and Miror B. via the Under Subway.

Ein did everything in his power to keep the Shadow Pokémon he created from being purified. He tried to have Rui kidnapped, the Relic Stone destroyed, and the Time Flute stolen. Ultimately, he failed at all of his objectives.

Wes and Rui broke into the Shadow Pokémon Laboratory and confronted Ein. Even though Ein had a Shadow Raikou to defend him, he was unable to stand up to Wes. Ein took solace in that he had already created the ultimate Shadow Pokémon, a Shadow Tyranitar, and had it transported to Nascour and Evice. He then made his escape in an elevator.

Ein made another appearance at Realgam Tower. The mad scientist had one of the keys to the tower's main entrance. Wes prevailed over the madman once again, and Ein was forced to hand over the Yellow ID Card and flee.

After Evice was defeated, Ein continued to make appearances as a challenger in the Deep Colosseum.

In battle, Ein prefers to use Rain Dance, then Thunder. He protects his Template:Type2 Pokémon from Thunder by always having a Pokémon with Lightningrod out on the field. He also likes using Toxic, then using Protect regularly to dodge attacks while the poison damage increases each turn.


Ein's Manectric replaces his Shadow Raikou.
