Pokemon Legends Arceus: Where to Catch Darkrai


Although Darkrai cannot be caught by legal means in Diamond and Pearl remake last year, Mythical Pokemon can be found in Pokemon Legends Arceus (PLA). It’s a bit of a surprise that nightmare Pokemon existed in a game that took place before the Sinnoh region even existed! Anyhow, here’s what you need to know to get where to catch Darkrai Pokemon Legend: Arceus (PLA).

Where to catch Darkrai in Pokemon Legends Arceus

Darkrai can be seen in the postgame. Like many legendary and mythical Pokemon in the main game, this one cannot be seen once you’ve beaten the game once. You will also need saved data from Pokemon Shining Pearl or Brilliant Diamond on your Nintendo Switch system. This part works same as getting Jirachi and Mew in Gen 4 remake.

Once at the end of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, head over to Professor Laventon’s blackboard. There should be a quest called Dark Nightmare. It is labeled as Claim 93 in your Tasks and Requirements tab.


In it, you’ll have to learn more from Pearl Clan’s Cael about the “frightening Pokemon” he’s seen and find its location to survey.

Mythical Pokemon is said to appear in Clamberclaw cliffs at night. If you go to that location at any time of the day when it’s not night, you’ll get a notification stating that you don’t see any sign of it there. You should just rest and set your wake up time to the “Until nightfall” option.

Go to the said location at the appropriate time of day and you will trigger the cutscene. Darkrai will come out of the shadows and attack you. Be careful and quick with movement, it tends to spontaneously shift around you. At the start of the next battle phase, prepare for a tough Pokemon battle.


This legendary Pokemon will be in level 70. Since it’s dark, it’s weak against combat, bugs, and fairy-style attacks. However, be careful not to take it down. Once Darkrai is captured, the mission will be completed and no one else “will fall victim to such dark nightmares…” according to Cael.

Pokemon Legends Arceus Now out for Nintendo Switch.
