Darkrai Distribution Returns In Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter


Mythical Pokémon Darkrai was distributed at GAME and GameStop stores in May as part of this year’s anniversary celebrations around the popular pocket monster brand.

Those that weren’t able to receive it in time will have another chance to do so when the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter lands in your inbox this September.

The Pitch-Black Pokémon was first seen in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, and it is said that the Mythical Pokémon chases away people and Pokémon alike by making them experience nightmarish slumbers.

Darkrai will be Level 100 with the ability Bad Dreams, which reduces the HP of an opponent’s sleeping Pokémon. The Dark-type Mythical Pokémon will have the moves Dark Void, Ominous Wind, Nightmare and Feint Attack.

You will need to sign up for the newsletter by 24th August 2016 to receive a code for Darkrai, which must be redeemed in Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y by 30th November 2016.

  1. When is the newsletter being distributed?

  2. September 19th and still no newsletter. A bit frustrating. The fluctuation of newsletter dates is very confusing and hopefully is addressed soon.

  3. When will it be sent out??
