Ein is a powerful Cipher Admin in Pokémon Colosseum for the Nintendo GameCube. He is extremely smart, as he created the Shadow Pokémon process, and is in charge of making every single Shadow Pokémon, including the ultimate one, Tyranitar. He is replaced by Lovrina in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.
He is the fourth Cipher Admin that you fight chronologically in the game, directly after Venus. This occurs throughout the entire game, where he holds the fourth ID Card in Realgam Tower, and when he was the final battle in Deep Colosseum Round 4. He is first seen talking to Venus in The Under.
Ein is a sly, sadistic trainer. However, he is very powerful, and very skilled when it comes to working with Pokémon and machinery. He runs the Shadow Pokémon Lab, and is completely in charge of all of the machinery that Cipher uses. Everybody in the lab respects his skills with both machinery and Pokémon, claiming that he is both a fabulous trainer and scientist.
He shares many traits with Lovrina, the scientist and head of the Shadow Pokémon Lab in Pokémon XD. They are both highly acclaimed throughout their helpers, they are both cruel, but smart, and they are both the masterminds behind the big things in their game. Lovrina is in charge of XD001, the unpurifiable Shadow Pokémon, and Ein is charge of designing the Shadow Pokémon themselves.
In battle, Ein likes to use Rain Dance to allow his Electric Pokémon a guarantee that Thunder will hit. He also likes to use Protect and Toxic so that he can protect his Pokémon while the poison wears his opponent's Pokémon down.
Due to the large abundance of Water/Flying Pokémon on his team, he usually has his Rhydon with Lightningrod out while one of them is out. This protects his Pokémon from Electric type attacks, and allows them to destroy the other team. A good example of this is when Rhydon and Gyarados both are on the field, allowing Rhydon to use Earthquake, which wouldn't hit Gyarados due to his flying type advantage.
