Nintendo and Game Freak are all about getting the wrapping up, adding the legendary and mystical Pokemon in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Don’t worry old-school western Sinnoh fans, Nintendo isn’t going to leave you with some torture. In this guide, we’ll go over How to Get Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl in Darkrai.
Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl – How To Get Darkrai
Darkrai is one of the most powerful and feared Pokemon in the series history; At least among the strongest pure dark-types out there. After Dark is its name.
Fortunately, getting Darkrai is not nearly as difficult as Arceus, which is also an event active and has a long list of requirements. Darkrai is all about timing.
To get the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl in Darkrai, you need to enter the Hall of Fame (AKA beat the Elite Four and Champion) and then receive the National Dex. After you’ve checked those boxes, open up Mystery Gift between the dates of April 1 and April 30 (or as Nintendo put it, between the new moons), and you’ll receive the Member Card. The Member Card is the Key Item you’ll need to encounter Darkrai.
With the Member Card, head to The Locked Inn at Canalave City and you’ll end up at Newmoon Island where you can go ahead and do battle with Darkrai in an attempt to catch it. Save the game beforehand just in case things don’t go your way!
If you are having trouble, remember that Fairy and Fighting Pokemon are effective at attacking powerful Dark Attacks, taking 50% less damage.
