Though it lacks the type advantage, it's still not the bad guy (boom shaka Mystery Dungeon)

Cresselia, because it looks odd but lovely, and also can be a pain to take out :p

I went with Darkrai because of its type advantage over Cresselia. I also like the fact that it's not really evil at all; its sleep abilities are only its defense mechanisms and it never intends to harm anyone (outside the Mystery Dungeon world at least).

As this thread is not really related to 4th gen games besides that they come from 4th gen games (unlike starter Pokemon polls as that's just a staple of forums and something everyone encounters in choosing, rather than Darkrai/Cresselia which isn't a choice, especially as one is event-only), I'll punt this to the PokePolls section.

I absolutely hate Darkrai, its design is atrocious so definitely Cresselia. Not that I'm particularly fond of Cresselia either, but she's got some good going for her.

Darkrai for me. Cresselia's okay but I prefer the darker, mysterious dark type

I prefer Darkrai so much more than Cresselia. It's dark and sleek, and its wispy design oozes of bad-assery.

Cresselia. Its design's better than Darkrai's. And I prefer psychic-type.

While Cresselia easily compares to Milotic for its beauty, which is one thing I like about it, I'd really choose Darkrai here. I just find Darkrai to be a really cool Pokémon, and even though its design could've been better, it's alright. I also like its backstory, as well as the role it played in the 10th movie, being hated by everyone for something it wasn't even able to control, which was really a different story to what I initially thought about it.

I caught Cresselia just for the Pokedex, never used it in battle.

I have only used Darkrai about 5 times though not a fan of using legend's in battle, but from what I saw Darkrai is very strong.

I would pick Cresslia over Darkai because I think Cresselia looks a lot cooler then Darkrai. Though Darkrai dose have better type advantage.

Cresselia, for more aesthetic reasons, I suppose. It looks more ~fabulous~ than Darkrai

/ridiculous reason

Darkrai. Cresselia's movepool stinks. And Darkrais more awesome in design anyway
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

I never seeing Cresselia in the Anime also never used it on Competitive Battle. So, my choice is Darkrai. Its Dark Void are horrible scary :3

Dakrai, it's a huge scary beat of nightmares! I never really liked Cresselia's design though, it seems somewhat silly :( Whereas Darkrai's design is 100% epic and it just looks like a complete monster of a Pokémon, so it definitely gets my vote.
