It is one of the most popular fanon speculations of the Black and White games.  That Cilan, Chili, and Cress are actually the Shadow Triad, loyal servants to Ghetsis of Team Plasma.

The believe spawned from the final events of the game.  All of the Gym Leaders of Unova show up at N's castle in order to hold off the six sages. That is, every gym leader except Cilan, Chili, and Cress.  The reason is revealed after the game that everything was over by the time Bianca got to them.

This has inspired many fans to speculate that the Trial Triangle is actually the Shadow Triad.  Of course, that's far from being fact... Or is it?

This is a scan of the Pokemon Adventures manga. It depicts the Shadow Triad for the first time up close.  Do you notice anything interesting about their masks? The way they are shaped are reminiscent to three certain Pokemon.

Pansear... Panpour... and Pansage...

The three Pokemon used by the Trial Triangle...

So is this fan speculation actually fact?  Or is it simply a coincidence?  You be the judge. But this is certainly an interesting revelation. :D

I agree with the theory that Chili,Cress,and Cilan are the Shadow Triad.According to evergrandecity.com,we have four hints.First,all the gym leaders were there to fight Team Plasma,EXCEPT for the trio.You can read the rest on the site.

The first time I played through White, this didn't even cross my mind xD
But after seeing fanart of Trial Triangle = Dark Trinity, this theory would be pretty cool. owo
The manga touches up on it, but even if the Black and White games didn't mention any hint about Cilan and the others being the Shadow Triad, I think Pokemon Gray (I hope they make a Gray version) might touch up on the identities of the Shadow Triad more ;D

Maybe PokeSpe supports the idea. xD Possibly a cross-canon difference in the anime? And what about the truth of the game, which sparked it all (Actually, I think Pixiv might have sparked it all... xP;; )? Pokemon Gray Version might have the answer... Hmm... *dun dun dun*

Faaaact. :D 'specially taking account the darker side of Dent's anime personality, this is so possible. Though it does make one wonder what they are going to do about it...

I don't think they are the Shadow Triad.
