Beginning today, The Pokémon Company International is giving fans several ways to experience and wield the nightmarish powers of the Mythical Dark-type Pokémon Darkrai. Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version videogame players can now get a Level 50 Darkrai through a special character distribution via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service. This Darkrai, available until 10th June 2012, knows the Dark Void attack that makes opposing Pokémon sleep, leaving them practically defenceless.
Even greater nightmares await your opponent when Darkrai’s Bad Dreams Ability takes effect – the sleeping Pokémon will take damage every turn. Combine this with Darkrai’s Nightmare and Faint Attack moves, and your opponents’ Pokémon will have bad dreams they won’t soon forget.
Pokémon Trading Card Game players can also harness the power of Darkrai when they discover the Darkness-type Pokémon in the new Pokémon TCG: Black & White – Dark Explorers expansion. The expansion arrives at major retail locations across the nation today and features Darkrai as an extremely powerful Darkrai-EX card and also a rare Ultra full-art Darkrai-EX card. Fans can discover Pokémon TCG: Black & White – Dark Explorers booster packs that may include Darkrai or any of five other Pokémon – Tornadus, Kyogre, Entei, Raikou, and Groudon – as Pokémon-EX and rare Ultra full-art Pokémon-EX cards.
