Wes is a young man who lives in Orre. He is the protagonist of the first game. Has a Mysterious Past and a bit of The Cowl complex.


Rui is the Mysterious Waif with psychic powers. She is the Sidekick and secondary protagonist in the first game. She's determined, caring, but can be a bit bossy and stubborn at times.



A strange man with long white hair and glowing red eyes. He's the one giving orders to all of the Cipher Admins... not that anyone's surprised by that.

Miror B.

The Laughably Evil member of the Admins. He's so lame that he isn't even given a legendary Shadow Pokemon of his very own. He eventually leaves Cipher to start his own group. You can guess how well that works out. In battle, he prefers to spam Ludicolo, using a combination of Rain Dance and Rain Dish to gradually recover his team's HP and attempting to win by attrition.

  • Affably Evil: He's not as kind most examples, but he's surprisingly cheery in a pleasant way.
  • Ambiguously Gay: He's some sort of camp, that's what.
  • Bad Boss: Folly and Trudly fear his punishment so much that they turn themselves in to the police to avoid it.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Seems to exist in his own little world most of the time.
  • Dance Battler
  • Disco Dan
  • Double Entendre: "Let the music spin!" "Let's get it on!"
  • Funny Afro: It's huge, and colored in red and white halves like a Poke Ball.
  • Heel-Face Turn: In a sense, also overlapping with Karma Houdini. After Snagging the Shadow Dragonite (the final Shadow Pokemon) from him in XD, he can be found in the Krabby Club dancing alongside Razell and Dazell, feeling content enough that he doesn't even notice when Michael talks to him.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: In XD, he desires to be his own evil team leader and rule over all Pokemon.'s that going for ya? Trudly and Folly lampshade this a couple of times when Miror B. is out of earshot, wondering whether that goal is actually realistic.
  • Left the Background Music On: He appears to be aware of and in control of his own theme, as it stops whenever he says "Stop the music!" and resumes whenever he says "Let the music play!".
    • It's made even more notable in his second battle in Colosseum when he says "Never mind that" right after declaring the music, and the standard Cipher Admin battle theme plays instead of his own during the fight.
  • Lone Wolf Boss: In XD.
  • Morality Pet: His Ludicolo. He sure seems to have fun dancing with them, and they're his main team members.
  • Shout-Out: To Michael Jackson, especially in XD where he debuts by moonwalking onto the scene.
  • Signature Mon: Ludicolo. In the first battle against him, his team (aside from the Shadow Sudowoodo) consists entirely of Ludicolo. His team in the second battle is a little more diverse, but still has two Ludicolo. In XD, he always has at least one member of Ludicolo's evolutionary line on his team for every battle.
  • Starter Villain: He's the first Cipher Admin that Wes has to deal with.


One of the four Cipher Admins. He's The Brute of the group, and one of the most strangely dressed characters in the game. Dakim's team is composed of hard-hitters; he generally has one member of his team use Earthquake while the other member uses a Defend Command to avoid taking friendly-fire damage in the process.

  • Blood Knight
  • The Brute: He's one of the only Pokemon characters to be seen physically attacking another trainer.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He really loves the move Earthquake.
  • Jerk Ass: He's fond of going on and on about how great and strong he is, and how puny his opponents are.
  • Karma Houdini: Last seen, he's battling in the Under's Deep Colosseum; a free man.
  • Primal Stance


A wannabe pop idol who's obsessed with being popular and is in control of the Under. In battle, she prefers to incapacitate opponents with status effects and Attract.


The leader of the Admins and creator of the Shadow Pokemon as a whole. With brains, charm, and style he's a true Magnificent Bastard. He enjoys spamming Toxic and Confuse Ray; after his first appearance, he also uses a modified Rain Dance strategy, sending out a powerful Water-type Pokemon in conjunction with a supporting team member with the Lightningrod ability to protect them from Electric-type moves.


The leader of Team Snagem. Needless to say, he isn't too happy about having his hideout blown up.

  • Bald of Evil
  • Badass Mustache
  • Defeat Means Friendship: After losing to Michael in XD, he and his henchmen help him break into the Cipher Key Lair. Also, when defeated in Orre Colosseum, he makes Michael an honorary Team Snagem member.
  • Enemy Mine: Between Colosseum and XD, Cipher cut all ties with Team Snagem, leaving him with a ramshakle hideout and only a few peons to his name. Since Michael is trying to take down Cipher, Gonzap is more than happy to let him take back the Snag Machine (because it was too small for him to use anyway), and help him get into the Cipher Key Lair.
  • Large and in Charge
  • Lone Wolf Boss: In XD, where he no longer has any affiliation with Cipher.
  • Signature Mon: Skarmory. He has one as the Shadow Pokémon on his team in Colosseum. In XD, he has a non-Shadow Skarmory which is the only Pokémon that is on his team during both battles against him.

Trudly and Folly

Miror B.'s henchmen.

Reath and Ferma

Miror B.'s other, women.


A Cipher Peon who is also a Master of Disguise. Angered by Cipher's defeat, he disguises himself as Wes and attacks people with a Shadow Togetic in an attempt to frame him.



Duking is a very large man and the de facto mayor of Pyrite Town. He looks big and mean but he's really a Gentle Giant.


Silva is a young man from Pyrite Town. He's Duking's Number One man. He's also a talented Master of Disguise when the need arises.
  • Butt Monkey: Tends to get captured by Cipher's goons whenever he tries to help out.
  • Cruel to Be Kind: Accidentally. To spite Duking, he steals the gears to the Pyrite Windmill, shutting down the Colosseum. This stops Cipher's plan to distribute the Shadow Pokemon through the Colosseums.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser

Chief Sherles

The police chief responsible for Pyrite Town. He seems to have his hands rather full.


Eagun is a very old man with a long white beard, and flowing robes. He's the grandfather of Rui. When he's not trying to write in his P*DA he acts as The Obi-Wan.


Eagun's wife and Rui's grandmother.

  • Flat Character: She's there to give the tablet and nothing else. Eagun could have done that. However, then she would have been nothing at all, only existing to avert Missing Mom.
  • Women Are Wiser: While we don't see a whole lot of her personality, she does seem a lot more sensible than Eagun.


Nett is the founder of the Kids' Grid and the resident Techno Wizard of the group.


Secc is the kid who establishes contact with Nett in the Under. The pair act as a main source of information afterwards.


Nett's little sister.
