As we reported a few months ago, Darkrai would be distributed at Toys R Us sometime this year, and now we know when!
According to Pokemon.com, a Darkrai distribution will occur on both May 31st and June 1st (Saturday and Sunday) at Toys R Us from noon until 4:00 PM. The method by which it will be given out is unknown; it could be directly downloaded to a player’s game though Mystery Gift, or the Canalave Inn event could be unlocked (where players are transported to Newmoon Island and have to face Darkrai within their game). If Darkrai is anything like its 10th movie counterpart from Japan, it may come with an Engima Berry and inside a Cherish Ball (this is if it is directly downloaded, not if the in-game event is unlocked). Its attacks could include Roar of Time, Spacial Rend, Dark Void, and and Dark Pulse.
The Rise of Darkrai will be released earlier in the week on Tuesday, May 27th, so if you plan on buying the DVD, you should hold it off for a few days so you can get both it and Darkrai at the same place (don’t waste gas!).
I have added the date and time to the 2008 calendar in the right menu for future reference.
