If you're having a hard time with Darkrai, you can use Choice Heracross with Sleep Talk to help counter it. It also resists Darkrai's commonly used moves, Dark Pulse and Focus Blast. It's up to you where you want to put Heracross on the team:
-Close Combat
-Sleep Talk
-Stone Edge/Night Slash/Pursuit
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf/Choice Band
Ability: Guts
(Giratina is still hit hard by Darkrai's Dark Pulse either way, however)

Just so Lugia isn't shut down entirely by Taunt, you can use Dragon Tail over Whirlwind, but Whirlwind does have the advantage of phazing away Pokemon behind a Sub, so that's up to you.
