Ever since its release, Darkrai has been causing trouble for many trainers in the competitive world of Pokemon Battling, especially in the Ubers Division. This is mainly in part to its exclusive move of Dark Void, but its exceptional Special Attack and Speed Stats makes it a serious threat. Add this to an incredibly vast Movepool, and you have one of the best Sweepers in all of Pokemon. Watch out for this thing.

Warrior13's 6th Generation Competitive Suggested Darkrai Moveset

Item - Life Orb
Nature - Timid
Ability - Bad Dreams
Effort Values - 252 Speed / 252 SpAtk / 4 Def

Dark Void / Thunder
Nasty Plot
Sludge Bomb / Dream Eater
Dark Pulse

Summary: This is the basic moveset for Darkrai, but it's also an effective one. It even has a number of different choices that go along with it, dependent upon what the user would like to run. Dark Void is crippling, but it's also very predictable. You can sub for Thunder instead, giving you a good option against Yveltal and Primal Kyogre. Nasty Plot is essential for any moveset you choose, as it truly makes Darkrai into a great sweeper. Dark Pulse has astonishing power with STAB and Nasty Plot, and is its number on move choice. The last move slot is up to you: Sludge Bomb gives coverage to pesky Fairies, while Dream Eater works wonders with Bad Dreams and Dark Void.

Countering: Mach Punch Absolutely wrecks everything Darkrai has going for it, especially because of the Move Prioity involved. However, any Pokemon with the Ability Insomnia also pokes hole in Darkrai's main form of attack. With that being said, Mewtwo Y is a unique choice to face it. It has the ability Insomnia, and most Darkrai Users might risk a Dark Void as you Mega Evolve into it, since they don't know how you're running Mewtwo. This would allow you to defeat it with an Aura Sphere or even setup with Calm Mind.
