Darkrai LV.X

Modified - This card could see some play in Darkrai/Weavile/Blissey decks. I don't think the deck will do that well in tourneys seeing that the whole deck is weak to fighting (Gallade). The Poke-Body is cool, turning all your basic darkness energy into specials. Endless Darkness is interesting, but the attack's effect is unclear IMO. Does your opponent keep flipping 2 coins until they wake up for as long as they stay asleep? Or does it only last until the end of their turn? Only a 25% chance of your opponent waking up is great, but unfortunately people tend to play Warp Points and Gardevoir LV X, so you could have a hard time keeping them Asleep. 3/5

Limited - It seems almost impossible to get both Darkrai and its LV X form in this format, but if you do, more power to you. 2/5

Name: Darkrai Lv. X
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Ultra Rare Holo

Analysis: OK, even though this thing gets OHKO'ed by Gallade without flipping any prizes, I still think he is really cool. Yes, the 2x weakness to fighting sucks, but Darkrai Lv. X is still really good. 100 HP is not good either, but a low retreat cost of 1 and a resistance to psychic helps a little. 'Dark Shadow' is great in any Darkness deck, applying the special Darkness Energy effect to any basic Darkness Energy to any of your Darkness Pokemon. Its attack, 'Endless Darkness,' is just great, and it combos well with Darkrai Lv.40's second attack 'Sleep Hole'. I wrote an article regarding 'Endless Darkness', so check it out to find out odds and other stuff regarding the attack. Basically, the odds are definitely in your favor, so Endless Darkness is surely a great attack.

Modified: I like the attack, the Body is awesome, so expect to see some of these lurking out there in tourneys. Unfortunately, it has a terrible weakness... (4/5)

Limited: Well, I'm kind of eating my words, after I bought 6 boosters last weekend and managed both Cresselia and Cresselia Lv. X. I know that was extremely lucky, but if you manage a Darkrai and its Lv. X, you should play it! Basically, you'll win if you get the Lv. X out. Unless you're playing a fighting deck, otherwise you're screwed.(4/5)

Darkrai Lv.X GE
 
Welcome. Today’s COTD is one that allows dark pokemon to abuse basic dark energies just like real ones. The added 10 damage for every basic dark can allow any dark pokemon to do massive damage, add that with Weavile SW and any (C) attacking pokemon are prime suspects for being pumped up to a ridiculous level. This goes well with any dark pokemon, or colorless energy needing pokemon w/ Weavile (Other than Murkrow I guess,) that could use a bit more damage output. Not only can this dude be used amazingly for his body (Slight pun.) But Darkrai also has one mean attack and it is mean! For 2 (D) 1 (C) you do 40, not good. But you also put the opponent to sleep, normally not so great. But, whenever Darkrai puts an opponent to sleep they flip two coins, that means your opponent has only a 25% chance of waking up! Not only that but, if they flip both tails, they are KOed on the spot! No chance of survival, none, nilch, zero. That means 25% of the time this move turns into a OHKO!
 
Pros –
Basic energies become special
The attack on Darkrai Lv.X is amazing!
Lv.X’s rock
 
Cons –
Not only is x2 Weakness is bad…
But x2 weakness to (Fighting) is worse!
 
Modified – Only for dark use. 4.25/5
 
Limited – basic energies = special rocks here for (D) pokemon. 3.75/5
 
Only 11 more day’s until states and 20 more days until SSBB!
