The Shadow PKMN Lab (Japanese: ダークポケモン研究所 Dark Pokémon Laboratory) is a newly-constructed facility built by Cipher in the middle of the Orre desert. It was at this lab that Ein converted snagged Pokémon into Shadow Pokémon.

The laboratory has several levels and seven Cipher Peons, including Skrub guarding the lab from intruders. Several Researchers also populate the lab and will attempt to stop intruders from interfering. The elevators and security doors create a maze-like pathway. In addition, an alarm system is in place to alert seen intruders.

The only way to enter Ein's private laboratory is to enter the names of the three Pokémon whose DNA is hidden throughout the Shadow Pokémon Laboratory.

Beneath the laboratory is the end of the Under Subway.

Later in the game, after Wes has defeated Evice and cleared Snagem Hideout out for the first time, the Cipher Peons that initially guarded the lab, besides Skrub return along with an additional one, who has a shadow starter who attempts to recover the data on how to create Shadow Pokémon. Wes again takes all of them down and the lab is seemingly abandoned. In Pokémon XD, Cipher Admin Lovrina has brought the Lab back into use after five years of dormancy. During this time, she and her team researches a way to make Shadow Pokémon impossible to purify. Curiously, the lab security seems to run backwards during this time: Ein's laboratory is one of the first rooms that Michael enters, as opposed to being one of the last. This is because the electric fence no longer works and the lab can be accessed from the main entrance.

The laboratory isn't well-concealed, and it can easily be seen from Agate Village and Mt. Battle.

The Hexagon Brothers

Upon arriving at Cipher Lab, the Hexagon Brothers will appear and stop the player. It is only necessary to defeat one of them to advance, but since all six brothers have a Shadow Pokémon, it is recommended to challenge all of them.

Naps

Naps is the final Trainer keeping the player from rescuing Professor Krane.



Lovrina

While attempting to escape the lab with the Professor, Lovrina will drop in from the elevator to the first floor and confront the player.
