Pokémon Black and White players can now download a level 50 Darkrai.
The Pokémon Company is giving fans several ways to experience and wield the nightmarish powers of the Mythical Dark-type Pokémon Darkrai. Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video game players can now get a level 50 Darkrai through a special character distribution via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service.
This Darkrai, available until June 10th, knows the Dark Void attack that makes opposing Pokémon sleep, leaving them practically defenseless. When Darkrai’s Bad Dreams Ability takes effect, the sleeping Pokémon will take damage every turn. Combine this with Darkrai’s Nightmare and Faint Attack moves, and your opponents' Pokémon won't stand a chance.
Pokémon Trading Card Game players can also harness the power of Darkrai when they discover it in the new Pokémon TCG: Black & White—Dark Explorers expansion. The expansion features Darkrai as an extremely powerful Darkrai-EX card and also a rare Ultra full-art Darkrai-EX card.
Fans can discover Black & White—Dark Explorers booster packs that may include Darkrai or any of five other Pokémon—Tornadus, Kyogre, Entei, Raikou, and Groudon—as Pokémon-EX and rare Ultra full-art Pokémon-EX cards.
Fans can get details on the Darkrai character distribution and check out cards from the Black & White—Dark Explorers expansion by visiting Pokemon.com/ex.

- Wireless broadband Internet access
- A Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, or Nintendo 3DS system
