From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Purple Eyes (Japanese: パープルアイ Purple Eye) is the head admin of the Pokémon Pinchers. He appears in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs and is a rather experienced archaeologist. Also, according to Red Eyes, he is "the type to throw away something when he's done with it," as seen when he dumped Raikou's Involith on Mt. Layuda.
In the games
In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Purple Eyes first appears in the Oblivia Ruins, where he is keeping Nema and Leanne hostage. When the player meets him and the Steelhead under his command, he battles the player with his Garchomp and he is revealed to be the one who indirectly inspired Blue Eyes to crash the Submarine. He is next seen on the top of Mt. Layuda, where he is seen with some minions trying to obtain Zapdos. He sends a Metagross after the player. He, however, is then told by Edward that he was simply a pawn and that he was weak because despite the fact that he had Steelhead armor and many Control Gauntlets, he failed to awaken Zapdos. Finally, Purple Eyes uses a Gardevoir to transfer him into the top of the Sky Fortress, where he steals chunks of armor from Kasa, Hocus, and Arley, and uses Edward's golden armor to control Mewtwo. Rand is sucked into a void with Edward and the suit breaks after Mewtwo is defeated a second time. The armor is scattered and Purple Eyes is picked up on The Union by Murph.
Purple Eyes later appears in an extra mission, attempting to encourage an Arceus to pass judgment on the world and destroy it, and is taken away by the Arceus to be judged when it is defeated by the player.
