Home / News Articles / Part 3 of Director Yuyama's Location Scouting Report / Darkrai distribution details
Some days back, the official Pokémon movie website has updated with information on the upcoming Darkrai distribution, as well as the third part of the coverage of Yuyama's location scouting report. Translations follow:

Director Yuyama's Location Scouting Report

This time, Director Yuyama chose Canada as the country he would go scouting in. He went there in search of the landscapes where Yveltal would sleep, where Xerneas would hide, and Diancie would journey.

Part 3: Setting off Into the Morning Mist

The second day is when our scouting started for real. We has our breakfast and checked out of our hotel at 7am, and eventually set off at 8. This morning, the entire city was shrouded in thick mist, and we couldn't see anything of the surrounding scenery. Morning mist like this appears to be common in November and December.

The bus carrying our group set off into the mist, following a long, straight road into the mountains. As the mist eventually cleared, a forest filled with trees beautifully colored red, orange and yellow came into view. We were right in the middle of the season for colored leaves.

As we gazed at the red maple leaves, which are also depicted on the Canadian flag, the bus rolled into our first destination for the day; Rideau Canal.

Why the Darkrai Given Out is so Amazing!


Level: 50
Ability: Bad Dreams
Moves: Dark Void, Dark Pulse, Phantom Force, Dream Eater
Held Item: Enigma Berry
Ball: Precious Ball
Ribbon: Wish Ribbon

The Darkrai being given out this year is a Dark-type mythical Pokémon that comes with a move it has never been able to learn and its very unique Ability. Check out the below info:

Its varied attacks will render its opponents as mere playthings!

Dark Void
A move only Darkrai can learn, a mighty move that puts multiple opponents to sleep at the same time!!
Dark Pulse
A Dark type move that can make the opponent flinch. Since it is of the same type as Darkrai, its power increases by 50%.
Phantom Force
A Ghost type move that Darkrai can't normally learn! A move where the user disappears on the first turn and attacks on the second, and which hits even if the opponent uses a move like "King's Shield" or "Protect"
Dream Eater
A Psychic type move that only takes effect if the opponent is asleep. In addition to healing HP equal to half the inflicted damage, it is super effective against Fighting type Pokémon, which Darkrai is weak against.

Decrease opponents' HP with the Ability "Bad Dreams"!

"Bad Dreams", an Ability exclusive to Darkrai, is a powerful Ability that decreases the HP of all sleeping Pokémon by a little bit every single turn! By using "Dark Void" to put all Pokémon to sleep, it's possible to deal damage to all Pokémon at once!

Recover HP with the normally unobtainable "Enigma Berry"!

Its held item is the "Enigma Berry" (ナゾのみ), which can't be normally obtained in the game. This is the first time a Pokémon holding this berry is distributed to "Pocket Monsters X/Y"! The "Enigma Berry" is a berry that recovers HP when you receive damage from a super effective move. Since Darkrai now also takes super effective damage from moves of the new Fairy type introduced in "Pocket Monsters X/Y", holding this berry is a good counter tactic.
*Be aware that the "Enigma Berry" will disappear if used during your adventure. However, it can safely be used without it disappearing when used in link battles, the Battle House, etc.
