Darkrai Escalation Battle Stage

Darkrai appears in an escalation battle stage and each time the player defeats Darkrai, the stage’s level increases. As the stage level increases, so does the difficulty so each time the player defeats Darkrai, it will grow stronger. When the player reaches certain levels, they can also receive rewards. At Level 5 EXP Point *1.5, Level 10 a Disruption Delay, Level 30 a Mega Start and Level 50 a Mega Speedup.

Darkrai’s special skill is Sleep Charm, which makes the enemy sleep for three turns. While a Pokémon is asleep, it will not use any disruptions. In addition, players can deal more damage to a foe while it is asleep!

10 New Stages and 3 New Expert Stages

Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion have been added in new expert stages. All three of these Pokémon have the Power of 4+ skill–line up four of these Pokémon in a match to deal triple the usual damage.
