To celebrate the launch of the Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai DVD, the legendary Pokemon Darkrai is coming to Toys 'R Us so you'll have a chance to capture it! Darkrai is a spooky Dark-type Pokemon with the power to put other Pokemon to sleep and attack them in their dreams. There's no way to catch it by playing the game normally, only special Pokemon events can let you get this incredibly rare Pokemon! Here's the 411 on the first of these events.

Toys 'R Us Special Pokemon Event

On Saturday, May 31, 2008 and Sunday, June 1, 2008, Nintendo and Toys 'R Us are holding a special Pokemon event at Toys 'R Us stores in North America. From Noon-4pm, Pokemon fans who show up with a copy of Pokemon Diamond or Pokemon Pearl and their Nintendo DS will be able to access a special download. With the download, you'll get a key that will let you into a special hotel room. Settle down for a restful night, but be ready for a nighttime encounter as Darkrai enters your dreams and challenges you to a Pokemon battle!

Battle Strategy

Brace for a serious showdown with Darkrai. It has a lot of attacks that put your Pokemon to sleep, a special power to damage them as they snooze, and more attacks that can really hurt you while you're napping! But, it still has weaknesses.

Pick Your Pokemon

As a Dark-type Pokemon, Darkrai is weak against Fighting moves and its attacks don't do a lot of damage to Fighting-type Pokemon. Machamp is rock-solid in this battle, but expect it to spend a lot of time snoozing anyway.

Items, Pokeballs and Strategy

Keep your healing items ready and stock up on Pokeballs for this one. A speed boost so your Pokemon can get off an attack before Darkrai sends them to snoozeland would be handy too. Once you manage to get the legendary Pokemon's Hit Points into the red, start throwing Pokeballs until you catch it!

    I've recently been learning about data corruption and how Animal Crossing games are prone to it. I have the physical version, and I'm getting the Action Replay Powersaves for 3DS. I know it's safe for Pokémon, but I'm scared that if I use it on New Leaf, my save data files will be corrupted. Is it safe to use the Action Replay on New Leaf? P.S.... No opinions please, I just want to know.
