Pokémon Darkrai Downloadable Free at Target and Toys “R” Us
Pokémon lovers, a downloadable is about to become available at Target and Toys “R” Us stores as part of promotions for the next Pokémon movie, The Rise of Darkrai. From October 30 to November 9, take your DS and your copy of either Diamond or Pearl into one of these stores, find the download zone, and follow the instructions. You need to have played enough to have a Pokédex, which isn’t very much at all. Darkrai is apparently “known for its ability to lull people to sleep and cause nightmares”. So does that mean it’s like the Freddy of Pokémon? The full press release after the jump.

Get into Target and Toys “R” Us stores nation wide between 30 October and 9 November, to receive Darkrai™ – one of the most sought after Pokémon® on your Nintendo DS®. Darkrai can be transferred into your copy of Pokémon® Diamond or Pokémon® Pearl on your Nintendo DS.

All Pokémon aficionados who bring their Pokémon Diamond or Pokémon Pearl Game, along with their Nintendo DS, to any Target (excluding Target Country) or Toys “R” Us store during the special Darkrai period, can add one of the most sought-after characters in the Pokémon universe, Darkrai, to their game. All they need to do is bring their Nintendo DS and a copy of either game, make their way to the download zone, and follow the instructions in store to receive Darkrai into their game. Fans will also need to ensure they have obtained the Pokédex in their copy of Pokémon Diamond or Pokémon Pearl.

The mysterious Darkrai, known for its ability to lull people to sleep and cause nightmares, is also the star of the latest movie, Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai, available 5 November on DVD.

  • finally a pokemon event in Oz i can go to. what happened to nintendo using wifi to send goodies? they havent used it which seems like a major rip. i already have a movie darkrai but i could always do one i can train up =]

  • Can someone tell me how many darkrai’s you can get because i would like to get a bunch but i would be happy to get just one anyway

  • So far I have been in three Targets and two Toys R Us, and although I found the DS Download station, there were no instructions in store. To add to my kids disappointment, not a soul in any of those stores even knew what I was talking about. At least we did download the Spore demo during this difficult outing

  • Our Target had the instructions, it was done using mystery gift. Not only did we have the instructions to get the Darkrai, our staff even knew how to get mystery gift, and if you asked the right staff, they would have probably traded with you. :p
