Team Dim Sun (Japanese: ヤミヤミ団 Yamiyami-dan, literally Darkness Gang) is the villainous team in Almia in the game Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.
Operating under the guise of the oil company Altru Inc., Team Dim Sun advances a plot to control all the Pokémon in Almia. Their leader, Blake Hall, works publicly as the President of Altru Inc. while living a double life as the head of Team Dim Sun. His goal is to enslave Almia's Pokémon and force them to produce limitless energy for his company.
In order to complete their plan, Team Dim Sun uses Gigaremo units, large and bulky computers that can control the minds of Pokémon near their locations. These units were designed by Altru scientists over many years and fueled by shards of the Shadow Crystal called Dark Shards. Later, within one year, Isaac helped them develop a smaller device called a Miniremo unit, and later, a gigantic, super powered Gigaremo called the Incredible Machine that was fueled by the Shadow Crystal itself and could control all of Almia's Pokémon.
While their boss's identity is concealed until the end of the game, their underboss, Kincaid, maintains a high profile, first as a teacher at the Ranger School, where he secretly recruits students to the team's ranks, and later as a direct commander to lesser-ranked members. Three other members known as the Sinis Trio directly answer to Kincaid.
After the player has beaten the game and plays the special mission; Liberate the Tower, Team Dim Sun takes control of the Altru Building again, only this time under the name Team Debonairs, with Kincaid as their leader. Though they have a new logo, they still use Miniremo units. They are planning on continuing where Blake Hall stopped. After the player beat Kincaid, Prof. Hastings tells Kincaid that his plans would have failed anyway. Team Debonairs is not seen after that.
Team Dim Sun also has special ops units. The Dim Sun Crimson Unit is under Lavana and worked with her to get the Red Gem. The Dim Sun Marine Unit was assigned to capture Wailord to replace the destroyed Cargo Ship and are based in the Oil Field Hideout.
During the Special Missions and Extra Missions, some members of the team, known as Team Dim Sun Remnants, try to revive Team Dim Sun in various ways. Some members also joined Kincaid in the new Team Debonairs.
- Team Dim Sun members receive a flag upon enrollment.
- Team Dim Sun had similar plans to Cipher in Pokémon Colosseum. Both of them have an undercover boss playing a major role in the region (Blake Hall as President of Altru and Mayor Es Cade (Evice) as Mayor), both build a tower incorporating into their plans (Altru Tower and Realgam Tower) and make Pokémon lose their memories (Shadow Pokémon and Gigaremo units). Also, they are final bosses of their respective games, and can be re-battled at will.
- 'Dim Sun' is possibly a reference to the style of Chinese food known as dim sum.
