Bravo! Bravo! Well done! Why not become a Cipher show-battle trainer? Would you even consider it? I'll vouch that you will become a top star in no time. ...I wouldn't have minded making that proposition, but I'm afraid I'm not that bighearted. I will destroy you in battle right now. You will know the humiliation of total domination before this crowd!
~ Nascour to Wes


Nascour (Japanese: ジャキラ Jakira) was thought to be the head of Cipher. A man with a terrifying visage, he is gaunt, dressed in dark clothes and possesses wiry, white, serpentine hair. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Cipher (Japanese: シャドー Shadow). Nascour's strategy in battle is to use X Special and other stat-enhancing items on his Pokémon.
