DARKRAI HAS APPEARED!!!!!!

Hey everyone!

 I’ve got some cool news for all of you! There is a Darkrai shadow (an outline of Darkrai, filled in with black) that appears on the front page of Pokemon.com!! This is very similar to the appearing and disappearing Manaphy Egg about a month before the Manaphy Code and 9th Movie were released…! If you wait approximately 5 seconds, a Darkrai shadow with a purple aura will fade in, float down the screen to one of the three ‘link tabs’ (it changes every time), pause there for about 20 seconds, then zoom off in a blur of darkness back where it came from.

 This could mean one of many things:

-the US will get the Darkrai ticket soon

-the US will get the 10th Movie soon

-the US will get the Movie Darkrai (nickname: “Eigakan” in Japan) (this is assuming the tenth movie, if not both, of the above happen) soon

 More proof that Darkrai is liable to be released any time now is the announcement by Pokemon USA about a new TCG set; ‘Diamond and Pearl: Great Encounters’!

Here is the description:

Witness Legendary Battles… Experience Great Encounters

Palkia. Dialga. A mysterious legend emerging from the darkness to challenge all comers.Who will stand victorious? In the Pokémon TCG: Diamond & Pearl – Great Encounters expansion, these incredible Pokémon come together to battle one another in an epic confrontation that will be a triumph for Trainers everywhere! With more brand-new Pokémon, more Pokémon LV.X, and a titanic clash of some of the most powerful Pokémon ever, Great Encounters is your chance to encounter greatness!

  • More new Diamond & Pearl Pokémon!
  • More powerful new Pokémon LV.X
  • Includes two brand-new Legendary Pokémon, Cresselia and a mysterious, powerful Pokémon…
  • Features three theme decks built around new Diamond & Pearl Pokémon!
  • Exciting holographic parallel set for players and collectors alike
  • Over 100 cards in all!

In Stores February 2008!

This obviously means that Darkrai may be released in early January, followed by the release of its Trading Card and Set. (speaking of which, the Starter Decks are going to be called Eternal Time (Dialga), Infinite Space (Palkia), and Endless Night (Darkrai)) This also means that the movie will probably be released in late January or early February. So:

-Darkrai release: Late December – Early January

-Darkrai Event?: Mid January

-Darkrai Movie: Late January – Early February

-Diamond and Pearl: Great Encounters: Mid February – Late February

That’s all about Darkrai for now! However… the Featured Pokemon, Torterra, has been released, the new quote is up, and the Pokemon Predictions section has been updated with this new info. Also, there may be a special appearance here by next year.

Your patience will be rewarded with a holiday present on the 16th! Yay! ^_^ So, until next time!

  1. Awesome! And the little shadow Darkrai is cool… my went down to PBR… lol, I think it’s telling me to buy it! Well, then I’d need a Wii, etc. etc.

  2. What is a Darkria?

  3. Darkrai is classified as the ‘Pitch-Black Pokemon’ and is a Dark-type which resembles a black ghost with a white, cloudlike substance like Entei’s mane, but oddly enough resembling a makeshift crescent. Its head is hidden under the white stuff, but a single blue eye is visible. It also has a red, toothlike-spike collar somewhat resembling a necklace or a mouth. It has skinny, spiked arms with jagged black material attached to its shoulders. It has human-like, but clawed, hands, which are of course all black. It has a tiny midriff with ribs showing if you look clearly. It does not have legs, but it does have a kind of black, spiky tutu thing with a ragged black ‘tail’ hanging off.

    Well, that might have been long, confusing and tedious. But a picture’s worth a thousand words, right? I found one: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:491-Darkrai-sm.png

    Darkrai symbolizes the new moon and is Cresselia’s archrival, although it should be noted that Darkrai is genderless, not male (to counter Cresselia’s female gender). It has the power to trap people in eternal nightmares and/or possess them while in this state.

    It is also quite interesting that Darkrai is one of the only true ‘evil’ Pokemon in the video games, whilst in the 10th movie it is simply misunderstood. In the video games, Eldrich’s kid gets trapped in one of Darkrai’s nightmares (DAR… DARK… Is watching me… (DARKRAI is watching me?)). You can rescue him by getting the Lunar Wing from Cresselia, but still. Darkrai also seems to be angry at you for awakening him, possibly also because you got your help from its rival. So when you use the Member Card to open the abandoned Inn, it seems that Darkrai was waiting for you because his servant? shadow? illusion? the innkeeper is standing right next to you when you enter.

    I am now assuming he is someone possesed by Darkrai rather than a servant, because I am assuming that (because of Gengar in Mystery Dungeon) ghost-like Pokemon say ‘Kekekekekekekeh!’, which is what both Gengar and apparently Darkrai say.

    It is also likely that it is someone possesed by Darkrai because Darkrai itself does not have a mouth! And because it was once an inn, I think that Darkrai has trapped everyone who comes into the inn. Anyway, the possessed guy sends you to bed magically, and you can’t stay awake and you fall into a nightmare in which you are on Newmoon Island and you must challenge Darkrai. Another interesting fact: Newmoon island is the mirror opposite of Fullmoon, except with rocks replacing trees and small rocks replacing flowers. Dirt replaces the grass, too, giving it a more ragged look. However, there is still a forest that you must enter to challenge Darkrai. Maybe Darkrai has the power to be captured by a Pokemon Trainer in a nightmare, because that (or KOing it, but Darkrai turns good when you capture it and besides which is an awesome Pokemon, so what’s the point? JUST CATCH IT!!) is what you must do. It is on level 40, but despite which is still a legendary Pokemon, and you should still treat it as so, because what it lacks in level it makes up for in powerful attacks even at level 40. You need to bring a tough Pokemon like a level-40 Blissey, Mantine or Bastiodon to survive its powerful attacks and carefully knock down its HP. Anyway, that’s besides the point. You cannot leave the creepy island (which, by the way, shares the same music with Rotom and Giratina – both in battle and in their locations. I hate Spring Path/Canalave Inn/Newmoon Island/Old Chateau music… *shudders*) until you defeat or capture Darkrai. You can save there, use items, etc., however. Note that any item you use up will still be gone when you get back because it’s more of a Darkrai-style revenge thingy. (which also means you get to keep Darkrai if you catch it!) Its signature move is Dark Void, which puts your opponents to sleep. It has the best accuracy in the game for a Sleep move with about 90% accuracy. (I think)

    However, in the 10th movie, Darkrai appears evil at first glance (mainly because it turns Trainers into Lickilicky!!! GASP!!! LOL) but is really just trying to protect the city from Dialga and Palkia, who have turned on each other and are causing mass destruction to the city while trying to KO each other. I won’t tell you how it ends, but all I can say is that I guess Darkrai can have a nice side… sometimes.

    And that’s my brief, succinct summary about Darkrai. I hope you understand what Darkrai is, because that was the short version. (LOL!) 😀

  4. Oh yeah: I forgot to mention Darkrai’s ability. Bad Dreams takes away your opponent’s HP for every turn they’re sleeping. However, it does not have Levitate and is still affected by Ground-type moves.

  5. OMG!!!!!!! I LOVE DARKRAI!!!!! Fave Sinnoh legendary. Oh yeah, and Kanto: Mewtwo, Hoenn: Kyogre, Johto: Lugia. Aaaah, off-topic. Anyway, I can’t wait for the Pokemon movie to come out here! And i’m SO adding Darkrai to my team. I’m raising a team entirely of ghost-types (my favorite type), and i’m going to add some legendaries because I don’t really wi-fi battle, or really do any kind of battle with real people anymore. Except for you, of course. Giratina and Darkrai, probably. (Oh yeah, and I LOVE Spring Path/Canalave Inn/Newmoon Island/Old Chateau music!) Wait, SHORT VERSION? Lol! Okay, end of my endless talking.

  6. (Oh yeah, it’s Dark type, but Dark/Ghost… meh, same thing to me.)

  7. Ive seen the 10th movie, it is the best!!

    …altho in japenese……. … … but i could still understand it…. slightly 😦
