Mayor Es Cade in his office at Phenac City

Evice (Japanese: ワルダック Wardack) is the criminal mastermind behind Cipher. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Cipher Head (Japanese: シャドーのボス Shadow Boss).

He disguises himself as the mayor of Phenac City under the name of Es Cade (Japanese: バックレー Backley). In his disguise, he is a fat and jolly gentleman who appears to be worried about the increase in crime caused by Cipher and Team Snagem, yet as the head of Cipher, he appears to have done nothing to stop either of them, ensuring that Snagem and Cipher work without interference.

In Pokémon Colosseum

When Wes and Rui arrived in Phenac City, members of Cipher surrounded the city. One of them, Nascour, was seen leaving Es Cade's house. Wes and Rui chased away the Cipher operatives from Phenac City, and Es Cade promised to investigate Cipher in return. However, he ended up leaving Phenac City shortly thereafter in a rage.

After Wes and Rui defeated Miror B., Dakim, Ein, Venus, Gonzap, and Nascour at Realgam Tower, Es Cade revealed his true intentions - his role as the head of Cipher, whom Nascour reports to.

Evice provided Team Snagem with powerful technology. In return, Team Snagem snagged Pokémon from innocent Trainers. They were transformed into Shadow Pokémon at the Shadow PKMN Lab - then shipped via The Under Subway and dispensed to the general public in Pyrite Town and The Under.

Evice also had Realgam Tower built. The diabolical mastermind wanted to attract wealthy Pokémon fans to the skyscraper and charge them money to see fierce tournaments between Shadow Pokémon.

Wes managed to defeat Evice's most powerful Pokémon, Tyranitar. Chief Sherles arrived to arrest Evice, but the rotund villain tried to make a quick get-away on a helicopter.

The legendary Pokémon, Ho-Oh, put a stop to that and Evice's evil scheme was put to an end. Evice and Nascour were arrested by Sherles.

When first encountered in Realgam Colosseum
"Enough! Don't embarrass yourself, Nascour!"
"My, my. That certainly was a battle worth seeing. I must be honest with you. I never imaged that you would get this far."
"Oh, dear me. Do you fail to understand still? You're such an innocent child. At times, I am the affable mayor of Phenac...And at others, I am the secret boss of the criminal syndicate Cipher...I am Evice, and i shall rule the world! How dare you meddle in our affairs so thoroughly! The Shadow Pokémon plan, we can resurrect from the start. But you two...you'll never be forgiven! I'll destroy you utterly so you may never again rise against me!"
"Blast you! Don't forget what you've done, <player>! It won't end this way next time! I will ruin you the next time, I promise you that!"
"Waahahah! Let us meet again! Our bid to take over the world using Shadow Pokémon hasn't ended yet!"
When defeated
"Noooooooh! Even my ultimate Pokémon!"


Name origin

Evice's name appears to be a combination of "evil" and "vice." "Vice", in addition to implying wrongdoing, may also imply the possibility that Evice isn't the true leader of Cipher. This is confirmed by Sherles in Pokémon XD, where he mentions that Evice wasn't the absolute leader to begin with.
