Es Cade (Japanese: バックレー Backley) is the mayor of Phenac City. A fat and jolly gentleman, he appeared to be worried about the increase in crime caused by Cipher and Team Snagem. He seemed to be easily flustered and incompetent.

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, Es Cade didn't seem to actually being doing anything in regards to the crisis in Orre.
After Wes and Rui defeated Miror B., Dakim, Ein, Venus, Gonzap, and Nascour at Realgam Tower, Es Cade revealed his true intentions.
Nascour was actually a subordinate of Es Cade, who ruled over Cipher as Evice (Japanese: ワルダック Wardack) - a grotesque and evil old man.
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 Pokémon Laboratory - then shipped via the Under Subway and dispensed to the general public in Pyrite Town and the Under.
Evice then built Realgam Tower. The diabolical mastermind wanted to attract wealthy Pokémon fans to the sky-scraper and charge them money to see malicious 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.
After his Shadow Tyranitar is snagged, it is replaced by an Aggron.
