Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have some of the coolest legendary Pokemon in the history of the series. The likes of Giratina and Darkrai are incredibly cool; dark legendary Pokemon that any trainer would be delighted to have in their party. The problem is, they’re also incredibly tricky to unlock, and in some cases, require special items to be able to encounter them. In this guide, we’ll explain everything you need to know about the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond Member Card, so you know how to get it and where to use it.
What Is the Member Card?
The Member Card is an item that players can use to open a locked house in Canalave City. It looks like a hotel room keycard when viewing it in your ‘Bag’ menu.
The Member Card is an important item as it enables players to fight the legendary Pokemon Darkrai. This elusive legendary is waiting inside the house when you’ve got the Member Card and open the door, so you’ll definitely want to get your hands on it if you’re looking to complete the National Dex (and get one of the strongest Pokemon in the game).
Getting the Member Card in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To get the Member Card in Pokemon BDSP, you’ll need to use Mystery Gift when an event that’s giving it away is live. At the time of writing, the Member Card cannot be obtained with this method, but chances are Nintendo will announce an event in the coming years that’ll enable players to get the Member Card and add Darkrai to their collection of Pokemon.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on exactly when the Member Card will become available via Mystery Gift, but as soon as we have any information, we’ll be sure to update this post.
Where to Use the Member Card
Once the Member Card has been obtained, you need to head to Canalave City. Here, look for the house with the blue roof directly north of the Pokemon Center.
You’ll then be able to go inside and the NPC will talk to you and say they’ve had a reservation for you for quite some time.
He’ll then direct you to the bed where you’ll fall asleep, and then you’ll awaken on Newmoon Island. Follow the path around and then interact with Darkrai and you’ll then be able to battle and catch this legendary Pokemon.
Darkrai is a level 50 Dark-type Pokemon.
