{nl}Meet Darkrai (Great Encounters, 4/106), a pitch-black Pokemon known to lull people to sleep and make them dream during nights of the new moon. Making its grand debut in Diamond & Pearl - Great Encounters, Darkrai is a Darkness-type Basic Pokemon with great attacks and high HP. Its powerful Sleep Hole attack delivers 40 damage to the Defending Pokemon, plus 40 more damage if the Defending Pokemon is Asleep. If the Defending Pokemon is not Asleep, the attack causes it to be Asleep. Either way, your opponent won't be pleased with the outcome. Darkrai's entry into the Pokemon universe will definitely shake things up with a surplus of shadowy new strategies to explore. {nl}
