Darach and Caitlin2

A closeup of Darach and Caitilin before a match

Castle Valet Darach is the Frontier Brain of the Battle Castle in various Pokemon Games. Darach is the main brain of the castle, with Caitlin being the secondary but she cannot battle, as confirmed in this quote: However, for a reason I'm not at liberty to disclose, she cannot battle. "She" being Lady Caitlin. Caitlin is the owner of the castle. Darach is very formal, and follows Caitlin's orders. In the Battle Castle, at the start of a challenge, unlike other Frontier Brains, Darach shows himself promptly. Before the first match, he gives you 10 CP (Castle Points) which you can spend on items, healing, berries, and viewing your opponent's Pokemon's stats. After a match, Darach gives you CP depending on how well you did in the match, and takes you back to the waiting room, where you can buy the things mentioned before. It is not confirmed that Darach is the Castle Valet until you fight him in the quote: Welcome. I am Darach, as you know, and I am the Castle Valet. He was first introduced in Pokemon Platinum and later returned in Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
