    Even though I haven't participated in the tournament just from looking at the logs it gives you a good idea of what darkrai is like in dw ou. It looks pretty underwhelming tbh, which is quite surprising, I thought it would be more of a force. Call me crazy, but I don't even think darkrai needs to be tested. If you dump it into the metagame it won't really cause much of a stir. It just looks like a beefed up Alakazam or gengar. It may cause manaphy to rise in usage and send alakazam to uu. But that's about all I can see. It's a got a shit ton of common checks from breloom, scizor, thunderus, ect. Manaphy even counters it. I think it's only worthy of a test if it's more powerful than estimated.
