How to beat Darkrai in Pokemon GO?

As we have mentioned earlier, Darkrai is Dark-type and it isn't quite easy to beat this Pokemon. Players will also find it difficult to defeat Darkrai despite having access to some of the best counters in Pokemon GO. Hence, the best way to take on Darkrai is to form a group of four or more members. In addition, one should also be aware that Darkrai is actually powered up by Fog, meaning that players should avoid standing close to this Dark-type Mythical Pokemon when there is a foggy weather condition. This is because it will give Darkrai a boost from its usual CP range of 2048-2136 to 2560-2671.

Several players have also been wondering about the number of trainers that it takes to defeat this Pokemon, in order to build a proper team. So considering his high defense stats, it is safe to say that it may take a minimum of three to five trainers at high levels. However, it is still important that you have some good counters spread across your team. So let us take a look at some of the best Darkrai counters in Pokemon GO.
