Pokemon BDSP Darkrai Location

Darkrai is a Dark-type Pokemon that has only 1 spawn location in Pokemon BDSP. You will find Darkrai at Level 40 in Newmoon Island.

How to Catch Darkrai

Before getting to Darkrai in Pokemon BDSP you need to do a couple of things. First, you need to make sure that you have the Member Card which you will need to enter the Inn in Canalave City. You will need to do the Cresselia stuff first.

You can go to Canalave City and enter the house with a sleeping boy. Talk to his father and he will tell you that he will need the lunar feather from the Fullmoon Island to awaken his son.

Go with his father to Fullmoon Island and you will find Cresselia there. You will get the Lunar Feather from her and after that, you have to return to the sleeping boy.

Now the other thing you are going to need is the National Dex.

Simply go to the Inn and sleep for a night there. When you wake up you will be at Newmoon Island.

On the island, you have to reach and interact with the Darkrai to catch it.

To catch Darkrai make sure you have the master ball for a guaranteed catch or try your luck with other balls (if you’re using a quick ball, throw it on the first turn) so you have more chances of catching it.
