From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Nascour (Japanese: ジャキラ Jakira) was thought to be the head of Cipher. A man with a terrifying visage, he is gaunt, dressed in dark clothes and possesses wiry, white, serpentine hair. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Cipher (Japanese: シャドー Shadow).
Nascour's strategy in battle is to use X Special and other stat-enhancing items on his Pokémon.
Nascour first met Wes and Rui at Phenac City. Nascour was leaving Mayor Es Cade's home. No explanation was given at the time as to why he was there, although it is implied that it was to report to Evice. He promised Wes that they would meet again soon. He spoke truly.
Throughout the rest of the Shadow Pokémon incident in Orre, Nascour gave orders to the Cipher admins - Ein, Dakim, Miror B. and Venus. He is seen in a cutscene speaking to Miror B., Ferma and Reath via video conference at Miror B.'s Hideout, and later in a similar discussion with Venus and Ein at Venus's studio in The Under.
At Realgam Tower, Nascour forced Wes to battle against four Trainers in a row, without a rest. He then fought Wes himself, in front of a packed stadium of witnesses. However, Nascour failed to defeat Wes. He then revealed that he had been taking orders from Es Cade, who now called himself Evice, all along.
Nascour is presumably arrested along with Evice in the finale of Pokémon Colosseum.

- Speaking with Miror B. in Pyrite Town
- "I trust things are going to plan, Miror B."
- "Good. The others also appear to be doing their parts to implement our plan. Our Shadow Pokémon is falling into place quickly. The final phase is not far off."
- "Save your dancing until our plans succeed. I'm off."
- When first encountered in Realgam Tower
- "Ah, you've finally reached me. I must say that I am impressed. <Player> and Rui, I welcome you to the Realgam Tower. My name is Nascour. Do you remember? The time that we met in Phenac City? I did have the feeling that I would one day face you in battle...But I never imaged that you would be the one to seek me out here. Very soon, we will be ready to greet your arrive in style. I will go ahead and wait for you. Don't keep me waiting too long."
- In Realgam Colosseum
- "What kept you, <player>? I was worried that perhaps Gonzap had beaten you. The time has come for you to pay off some debts. We'll have you battle as payment towards the huge losses you inflicted on us. I expect to see spectacular battling out of you. After all, you're here to entertain! Waahahahah!"
- "Bravo! Bravo! Well done! Why not become a Cipher show-battle trainer? Would you even conisder it? I'll vouch that you will become a top star in no time...I wouldn't have minded making that proposition, but I'm afraid I'm not that bighearted. I will destory you in battle right now. You will know the humiliation of total domination before this crowd!"
- "Gaaaah! It's not over, <player>! Come on, we shall battle..."
- "Sir! I...I beg your pardon!""
- When defeated
"N-no! There's no...This can't be happening!"
- When battled, Nascour is the only Trainer to have no battle music play, however, during the battle the crowd can be heard cheering him.
- In the game, Nascour has red eyes, however in the manga adaptation his eyes appear normal.
