Effect

Passive effect

The Member Card grants the player access to the Harbor Inn in Canalave City. Shortly after, the player will meet a strange old man, have a nightmare, and travel to Newmoon Island, where Darkrai can be obtained. If Darkrai is obtained, a booming voice will talk to the player and the player will wake up from their nightmare with Darkrai either in their party or in the PC. The player can rebattle Darkrai again, if fled from or fainted.

Before the player may enter the Harbor Inn using the Member Card, the player must first meet Cresselia, obtain the Lunar Wing, and use it to dispel the nightmares Darkrai inflicts on Eldritch's son.
