Miror B. (Japanese: ミラーボ Mirorbo) is a recurring character and major antagonist from Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Wanderer (Japanese: さすらい Wanderer).

In the games

Pokémon Colosseum

In Pokémon Colosseum, Miror B. is one of the four Admins of Cipher. A man with a gigantic two-toned afro (which resembles a Poké Ball turned on its side), garish glasses, and dressed in a golden sequin-studded leisure suit, Miror B. is the definition of "loud and flamboyant." He spoils his Pokémon and would rather spend time teaching them how to dance than fulfilling his duties as a Cipher Admin. An example of this is seen in Pyrite Town, where he basically lets his grunts do whatever they want as long as they leave him alone so he can practice his dancing.

Miror B. in Pokémon Colosseum

Miror B. makes his first appearance in Phenac City, where Wes and Rui find him "terrorizing" the mayor, Es Cade. He pauses to drop some vague hints regarding Cipher's involvement, then leaves Phenac City to return to Pyrite Town while his personal Peons attack Wes and lose badly.

After the player reaches Pyrite Town, it is discovered that Miror B. is controlling the town with an iron fist. Having kidnapped Duking's Plusle and holding it hostage, Miror B. has effectively blackmailed the town's reigning hero into uselessness, allowing the dancing deviant to run the Pyrite Colosseum and hand out Shadow Pokémon with no resistance to his reign. Though Duking's subordinate Silva attempts to foil the scheme by sneaking into the Pyrite Bldg in order to rescue Plusle, he is greatly overpowered by the guards. Fortunately, he is rescued by Wes and Rui, who proceed into the Pyrite Cave and challenge Miror B. After his defeat, Miror B. leaves town and Plusle is returned to Duking; thus the town is freed from Miror B.'s grasp.

Miror B. shows up again at Realgam Tower, where he is guarding one of the keys needed to unlock the path to the main tower. He is later found as an opponent in the Deep Colosseum as the last opponent of the first round. Revisiting Miror B.'s "dance stage" prior to defeating Evice will reveal a unique Cipher Peon named Mirakle B., who claims to be Miror B.'s successor.

When Wes first confronts Miror B., his Pokémon consist of four Ludicolo and a Shadow Sudowoodo (later replaced by Armaldo), though he uses more variety in his Pokémon during later matches. Miror B.'s battle strategy consists of stalling his opponent, using Rain Dance to boost his Pokémon's abilities while he slowly whittles their HP away with moves like Mega Drain and Leech Seed.

Miror B. is the only one of the Cipher Admins to not receive a Legendary Pokémon. Also, he is the only Admin to have his own theme music, a Latin-styled dance theme, which plays when he is fought in Pyrite Cave and Deep Colosseum. In Realgam Tower, he decides to fight without his theme, and the standard Admin Battle music plays in its place.

Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness

Miror B. later appears in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Here, Miror B. now wears a darker outfit styled after American pop singer Michael Jackson, complete with a single gloved hand (though the glove is black instead of white and is worn on the right hand instead of the left); he is even seen moonwalking on occasion. His battle theme has also changed to a more disco-styled tone to reflect his new wardrobe.

Miror B. is no longer an Admin of Cipher, but is instead attempting to set up his own group, Team Miror, which consists of himself, Trudly and Folly, and is seeking to own all the Pokémon in the world.

In this game, when a Shadow Pokémon is defeated before it is snagged and its Trainer can't be rebattled, Miror B. will obtain the Pokémon. After the player meets Miror B. for the first time, he obtains the Miror Radar, which alerts him when Miror B. has entered an area. He can be found at any Poké Spot, and occasionally can be fought as an opponent in the Pyrite and Realgam Colosseum challenges.

He also has three set appearances, each with a unique Shadow Pokémon to snag: the first meeting at the Cave Poké Spot where he has a Shadow Voltorb, the Outskirt Stand in which he has a Shadow Nosepass (though it cannot be snagged in this encounter due to not having the Snag Machine at the time), and Gateon Port's lighthouse, where he will only appear once all other Shadow Pokémon in the game have been snagged. In this final battle, he'll use a Shadow Dragonite, which is mentioned as having been stolen from the Cipher Key Lair and being the last one produced prior to its shutdown.

After his defeat and the snag of his Dragonite, Miror B. escapes once more. As he flees, he finds the transmitter to the Miror Radar in his afro and removes it, unaware as to what purpose it served in his repeated defeats. He can be found afterwards at The Krabby Club, dancing with Razell and Dazell.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, the player must battle Miror B. at least four times to capture all Shadow Pokémon in the game. Since his Shadow Nosepass can't be snagged at Outskirt Stand due to the Snag Machine being unavailable at the time, he must be fought either at Pyrite Colosseum, Realgam Colosseum, or one of the Poké Spots to snag it.
  • In Pokémon Colosseum, Miror B. is the only Cipher Admin to have a unique battle theme rather than the default Cipher Admin battle theme.
    • He's also the only character in the Orre games to use more than one different battle theme per game, as he uses the Cipher Admin battle theme instead of his own theme during the Realgam Tower battle in Pokémon Colosseum.
  • If the player manages to snag Sudowoodo during the first battle with Miror B. in Pokémon Colosseum but loses the battle, Miror B. will not have another Pokémon replace Sudowoodo. This is the only battle in the game where he will not replace his snagged Shadow Pokémon.
  • Miror B.'s names in French, German, Italian, and Spanish are derived from "disco ball".
    • His names in English and Japanese are derived from "mirror ball", another name for the disco ball.
