Dark Void (Japanese: ダークホール Dark Hole) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature move of Darkrai.

Effect

Generation IV-VI

Dark Void puts all adjacent foes to sleep, with an accuracy of 80% for each Pokémon.

In Pokémon Battle Revolution if sleep clause is active, Dark Void will only put one foe to sleep and will be forced to miss for the other.

Generation VII

Dark Void's accuracy was reduced to 50% for each Pokémon.

Dark Void can now only be successfully used by Darkrai (or a Pokémon that has transformed into Darkrai). If this move is used by any other Pokémon, the move will fail. If using the move as a Pokémon other than Darkrai, the battle text "But <Pokémon> can't use the move!" will be displayed.

If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Dark Void, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.

Pokémon Method
User First Used In Notes
491 Darkrai Darkrai puts its hands together and forms a crimson and black or purple and black ball in its hands. It then fires it at the opponent. When the opponent is hit, a crimson or pink bubble appears around the opponent's body that soon disappears and makes them fall asleep, or Darkrai creates a crimson ball and holds it above its head, releasing multiple smaller balls from the larger one all around its body. When the small balls it the opponent, they form a pink crimson bubble around it that fade away into dark crimson. Once the sphere disappears, the opponent falls asleep.
