    Default Darkrai

    491 Darkrai

    Pitch-Black Pokémon: It can lull people to sleep and make them dream. It is active during nights of the new moon. Folklore has it that on moonless nights, this Pokémon will make people see horrific nightmares.

    Ability: Bad Dreams - When opponent’s pokémon is asleep, it loses 1/8 of its HP each turn.

    Types: Dark

    Currently: Japan movie or US Toys R Us events only
    Future: New Moon Island after obtaining members pass?


    Base Stats
    HP 70
    Attack 90
    Defense 90
    Special Attack 135
    Special Defense 90
    Speed 125

    Total: 600

    Special Attacker
    Nature: Timid/Modest
    Item: Life Orb
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 Special Attack / 252 Speed
    Moves:
    Dark Void
    Dream Eater
    Dark Pulse
    Ice Beam/Thunderbolt/Spacial Rend(event Giveaway ONLY)


    MewTwo and Deoxys are the only two Ubers with higher base speed. However, it has the lowest combined total of HP, Defense and Special Defense of all Ubers; therefore it needs to max out its speed. Timid nature with 252 Speed EVs are highly recommended. Fighting and Bug attacks are super effective against Darkrai, so watch out for close combat!


    Anti-Status Attacker
    Nature: Timid/Modest
    Item: Leftovers
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 Special Attack / 252 Speed
    Moves:
    Substitute
    Dark Void
    Calm Mind
    Dark Pulse

    If your opponent has a status attacker out, first use Substitute. The status won't effect the substitute. Then use Dark Void to put opponent to sleep. Then use Calm Mind until opponent wakes up or switches out. Finish with Dark Pulse.


    Mixed Attacker
    Nature: Hasty/Naive
    Item: Life Orb/Lum Berry
    EVs: 202 Attack / 106 Special Attack / 202 Speed
    Moves:
    Dark Void
    Dark Pulse
    Focus Punch
    Ice Beam/Thunderbolt/Spacial Rend(event Giveaway ONLY)

    Similar to special attacker, but adds Focus Punch to break down special walls.

    Replace hypnosis with dark void I'd think - Dark Void has a much higher success rate and is a move that only Darkrai can learn (with the obvious exception of Smeargle)

    I'd focus on Sp. Attack, Speed, and dump the rest in HP.

    I just had to comment on this set. There is a particular move on it that doesn't deserve to be there. That move is Dream Eater. Sure, it sounds great, do damage to a sleeping opponent who can't fight back and gain some back. It PWN's computer opponents. But anyone who isn't a computer would switch >_>...

    Even if you do get to use it once they would switch it out the next turn, giving you only two usable moves (the next pokemon isn't asleep and sleep clause is already activated). So it's just not worth it.

    any advice for an adamant darkrai?

    im thinking

    darkrai @ choice band/life orb
    252 atk/252 speed/6HP or maybe a even spread 108 atk/108 sp atk/252 speed

    payback/pursuit
    SD
    dark void
    shadow claw/x-scissor/rock slide/drain punch
    the dancing butterfly just 6-0d your team

    Not many Uber battles use the sleep clause, so you could put their whole team to sleep. But, you are right, there are a lot of options based on personal preference. Thunderbolt or Spacial Rend are both good options to replace Dream Eater as well.

    Adamant loses its special attack bonus, but I'd bet its special attack would still be higher than its physical attack...just depends on its IVs.

    If its physical attack is somehow higher than its special, I'd use the following moveset...

    Dark Void
    Substitute
    Focus Punch
    X-Scissor
