Description: Although it looks an awful lot like a Ghost, Darkrai is a pure Dark type Pokémon. Most of the time, it appears to be a legless torso of black, with smoky white "hair". It has a spiky collar of bright red, and deep set, glowing blue eyes. Its body seems to be made of shadow and smoke, and sometimes, it will extend long shadows in the shape of thin legs from beneath its waist. Its torso has extreme proportions, making an hourglass figure with massive protrustions atop its shoulders and a frayed skirt of sorts attached to its very narrow waist.

Although it is drawn to and capable of creating nightmares, this is a defense mechanism on Darkrai's part - not a malicious act. It prefers to avoid contact with humans and other Pokémon while they are awake and will dematerialize into shadows to do so. If someone is suffering from Darkrai's nightmares, they can be cured with one of Cresselia's Lunar Wings.
