In the anime
Darkrai was the "mascot" of the Pokémon movie called The Rise of Darkrai. In the beginning of the movie, many thought that the Pokémon was an evil creature, though in the end it was revealed to have a good heart when it went off to stop the fighting between rival Pokémon Palkia and Dialga. After sacrificing itself to save the world, Palkia used its powers to turn everything back to normal, thus reviving Darkrai.
