Best Movesets for Darkrai in Pokémon Go

Lurking in night sky...

Darkrai, the Pitch-Black Pokémon, is a Mythical Pokémon that is occasionally featured in raid battles. Given that Darkrai is a Legendary Pokémon, players typically swarm to the Raids featuring Darkrai to take advantage of its power. So the question is, how do we put ours on the list of the best ones? The answer is simple: by picking the right moves! This guide lists the best attacks to give to your Darkrai to make sure they're the best of the best.

Darkrai is a Dark-type Pokémon with no additional types, but that doesn't mean you want to keep it to Dark-type attacks. Darkrai is also alone on its evolution line, so you don't need to worry about whether the best movesets will change depending on different evolutions.

Snarl and Feint Attack are both excellent Dark quick attacks, and you won't want to stray from either of them. Sludge Bomb and Shadow Ball also work just as well as each other due to the lack of resistance to Ghost or Poison, but Shadow Ball is the best option for Darkrai during a weather boost.
