To befriend Darkrai, you will first need to obtain the Member Card item using the in-game Mystery Gift feature – which you have until Saturday 30th April 2022 to receive.
After the Member Card is in your possession, once you have entered the Sinnoh region’s Hall of Fame and obtained the National Pokédex you must then travel to Newmoon Island.
You can get to Newmoon Island by resting at the Harbor Inn in Canalave City, which is north of the Pokémon Center. Inside, you will be greeted by a strange man after which you can choose to sleep in a nearby bed. You will wake up on Newmoon Island, on which you will have the chance to encounter Darkrai within a forest.
The Darkrai that you can catch is Level 50 and knows the moves Double Team, Foul Play, Hypnosis and Sucker Punch.
