Which would you choose Dark type Darkrai or physich type cresselia? ;)

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

August 7th, 2012, 6:20 PM
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.

I voted for Darkrai because well i thought he looks cooler. I also like Cressalia. and is it just me or Does Cresselia look like if Milotic had an evolve form. but that is just me.

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.

darkrai because i prefer the dark type~~~83

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.

Darkrai. Cresselia is basically just a big Mespirit

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 prefer Psychic-type although it's not as strong as Darkrai

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

I like Cresselia, cos she's beautiful and I love Psychic-types.

Darkrai for being such a boss and giving free retreat.

September 20th, 2012, 2:27 AM
Darkrai. Cresselia's movepool stinks. And Darkrais more awesome in design anyway

September 20th, 2012, 4:06 AM
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

September 20th, 2012, 6:11 AM
I like them both equally but I think I prefer Cresselia's design.

September 20th, 2012, 6:22 AM
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.

September 20th, 2012, 6:42 AM
Darkrai, of course. It's too awesome in any way you think....

September 21st, 2012, 6:24 PM
I personally prefer Darkrai more cause you getta put people to sleep xP

September 21st, 2012, 6:58 PM
I pick Darkrai cause he's much cooler and stronger for me... :)

September 22nd, 2012, 1:42 AM

In these questions I always go by design because I have no knowledge of what's better than what in battle and why (retro gamer, not into the whole metagame), so I'd go for Cresselia seeing as it's by far the prettier of the two. I also like Psychic more than Dark as a type, generally :P
