Cipher Admin (Trainer class)

A Cipher Admin (Japanese: シャドー幹部 Shadow Executive) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games, debuting in Pokémon Colosseum. In this game, it refers specifically to Miror B., Dakim, Venus, and Ein. They are each battled in their main location for the first battle, and each of them rebattle Wes in Realgam Tower. Miror B's main location is Miror B.'s Hideout in Pyrite Town, Dakim's is Mt. Battle Zone 10, Venus's is in The Under, and Ein's is the Shadow PKMN Lab.

In Pokémon XD, it refers to Lovrina, Snattle, Gorigan, Ardos, and Eldes. The first three mentioned are battled in their main location and then battled at Citadark Isle for a rematch (similar to the Admins in Colosseum). Ardos and Eldes — the personal bodyguards and sons of the main villain — are only battled in Citadark Isle.

A Cipher Admin is an important member of Cipher, who act as bosses throughout the games.

Each Cipher Admin can later be battled in their respective game's final Colosseum (Deep Colosseum in Pokémon Colosseum, and Orre Colosseum in Pokémon XD).
