Dark Void (Japanese: ダークホール Dark Hole) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is Darkrai's signature move.
Dark Void puts the foe to sleep. In a Double Battle, Dark Void will hit both foes with an accuracy of 80% for each Pokémon. In a Triple Battle, Dark Void will only hit opposing adjacent Pokémon.
In Pokémon Battle Revolution if sleep clause is active, Dark Void will only put one foe to sleep and will be forced to miss for the other.
|| The foe is dragged into a world of total darkness that puts it to sleep.

|| First Used In
|| Darkrai puts its hands together and forms a crimson and black or purple and black ball in its hands. It then fires it at the opponent. When the opponent is hit, a crimson or pink bubble appears around the opponent's body that soon disappears and makes them fall asleep, or Darkrai creates a crimson ball and holds it above its head, releasing multiple smaller balls from the larger one all around its body. When the small balls it the opponent, they form a pink crimson bubble around it that fade away into dark crimson. Once the sphere disappears, the opponent falls asleep.
