Explorers Titles[edit | edit source]

Darkrai wants to turn the world into darkness by destroying Temporal Tower and destroying time itself, though not seen in the main story, he later explains that he was the one behind it all. Darkrai also was the one that turned the Hero into a Pokémon, and also separated Grovyle and the hero during their time travel before the start of the story.

In the Post-credits story, he tries to destroy space. He disguises himself as Cresselia, to make Palkia believe that the hero and the Partner are the enemies only to be saved by the real Cresselia. The next time he's seen is in Dark Crater Pit, where he tries to mind control, the Hero only for them to resist. After his failed mind-control attempt, a fight is started. After being defeated in the fight by the Hero, their Partner, and Cresselia, Darkrai tries to escape, only for Palkia to attack. Palkia's attack causes Darkrai to lose his memory. He can later be found in dungeons and recruited, with no memory of his past or actions.
