First Appearance
Region

Dakim is a gruff, powerful admin of Cipher. While he isn't directly involved in the Shadow Pokémon project, he seems to be the force of the group, being able to physically beat anyone who doesn't want to cough up any information that could be vital to their project. This is seen during Cipher's invasion of Mt. Battle, where he beats Vander.

Personality

He seems to be an extremely skilled trainer, despite his brute attitude. He understands a Pokémon's weaknesses, and is able to protect them against this using their moves, especially in Double Battles. He exclaims after being beaten at Realgam Tower that the only trainers he has ever lost to are Wes and Nascour.

Gorigan from Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness shares some of his traits. Both of them seem to be very forceful, and both of them are powerful, but Gorigan is a little bit smarter than Dakim, as he and Lovrina work as the heads of the Shadow Pokémon manufacturing project.

Dakim commands a lot of respect from the Cipher Peons, possibly because they know he will thrash them if they don't respect him, or he earned it through his battle skills. However, he seems to travel with a gang, as he, unlike the other Cipher Admins, has no set base where all of his main projects take place. He is first encountered visiting Mt. Battle, then again visiting Realgam Tower, and later visiting the Deep Colosseum, which are all set bases of other members of Cipher.

Battles

Dakim likes to use a "Protect for Murder" strategy. With this, he has one Pokémon use Earthquake, while the other uses Protect, then those two reverse roles. This works because Protect won't fail every other time if it's used this way. By knowing his strategy, the player can defeat him with only a little bit of trouble.

He does have a few Pokémon that cannot use this strategy, which makes the battles with him overall easier. Some of these Pokémon are Marshtomp, Flygon, and the majority of his second and third teams.
