  1. You can get Darkrai by having a Secret Slab or a Mystery Part in your bag. If you don't put either one in, then darkrai wont show up. You can find Darkrai in 5 different locations! I don't know which dungeon or floor he's in but I just found out in a FAQ here. if you get him, he'll start out as lv50. I equiped an item that boosts the chances of recruiting pokemon.

  2. The easiest location is miracle sea 3F. for the rest of the locations go to the FAQs. his recruitment rate is -22% so bring a golden mask or an ember tear.Darkrai starts at about Lv 52 when you recruit him (in the 50's anyway) just watch out for his nightmare attack. he can also walk in walls so be prepared. Have secret slab or mystery part in your bag but don't expect to recruit it on your first try. and have an escape orb too. it personally didn't take me very long to get him because it was so easy to get to that location.

  3. Darkrai can be found in many locations, but the easiest is Miracle Sea 3F. You will need a golden mask, friend bow or anything else that boosts your recruitment rate.You will also probably want to be Lv.100, because his recruitment rate is low. Bring an escape orb, and a reviver seed. The reviver seed is for placing it in front of Darkrai. and he will get it. This makes you get two shots of recruiting him. Good Luck!

    *You must have a Mystery Part or Secret Slab in your bag.*

  5. You can recruit Darkrai if u have Secret Slab, Mystery Part, Amber Tear or Golden Mask.

    Here are the dungeons:
    Lower Crevice Cave B2F
    Miracle Sea 3F
    Mt. Travail 17F
    Spacial Rift 14F
    Mystifying Forest 13F
    Warning: You can only recruit him if you defeated him in Deep Dark Crater.
    He is extremely tough!
    If I were u stack up on items and head for Miracle Sea 3F, quick access.

  6. First, you need to have beaten post-game, with Darkrai as the final boss. Next, get the Secret Slab or Mystery Part and put one into your Treasure Bag. Be careful not to lose in a dungeon, as you may lose it! Then, you can go to one of 5 locations:
    Lower Crevice Cave 2F
    Miracle Sea 3F
    Mystifying Forest 13F
    Spacial Rift 14F
    Mt. Travail 17F
    It doesn't matter where he was encountered first, he will always appear in every location until you recruit him.
    The only problem: He has a -22% Recruit Rate. Bring a Golden Mask/Amber Tear and (when in the dungeon) equip it to your leader. If the leader has 5.5 IQ Stars and is in IQ Group B or H, it will learn Fast Friend IQ, which boosts recruitment rate. If that same leader is also Level 100, you will get even more recruitment chances. If all of these factors are combined, the recruit rate boosts to (check my math) 49%. This is amazing for a Legendary.
    A simple IQ H Pokemon is Mew, in Mystery Jungle, where 1 of the 7 Legendary Treasures are.

    Wonder Mails are available for every item mentioned, and Wonder Mail is mandatory to obtain Mew.
