Darkrai is a Shadow-like Mythical Pokemon known to infiltrate the dream world and bring about unending nightmares. This How to get Darkrai Guide will tell you how you can obtain this rare and powerful Pokemon as a redeemable bonus in Pokemon Arceus Legends by having a save file of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl on their Nintendo Switch.
Aside from having a save file of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, which were the most recent releases in the Pokemon series of games on your Nintendo Switch there is still a requirement that needs to be met, and that is you need to have completed the main story. When you return to Jubilife Village once you have achieved this and viewed the end credits you will be able to find research quests for Darkrai on your Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shinning Pearl save file.
Shaymin, the Grass-type Mythical Pokemon can also be obtained the same way as Darkrai. Along with these two Pokemon the Pokemon Brillant Diamond and Shinning Pearl Save file will also grant you the gift of in-game outfits available once you join the Galaxy Expedition Team. Modern Team Galactic set is available for Pokemon Brillant Diamond and Shinning Pearl and a Shaymin Kimono set if you have a save file of Pokemon Sword and Shield.
