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 rematch Wes in Realgam Tower.

In Pokémon XD, it refers to Lovrina, Snattle, Gorigan, Eldes, and Ardos. The first 3 mentioned are battled in their main location and then battled at Citadark Isle for a rematch (similar to the Admin's in Colosseum). Eldes and Ardos -- the main bodyguards and sons of the main villian -- 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 (incliuding Eldes/Ardos) can be battled in the Final Colosseum (Deep Colosseum in Pokémon Colosseum, and Orre Colosseum in Pokémon XD).
