Self-Inflicted

Does this ability also cause Darkrai to take damage when asleep? Norle 06:50, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

No - "Reduces a sleeping foe's HP." —MasterKenobi 06:56, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

anime appearance

How did Darkrai use the ability in Sleepless in Pre-Battle! when the Team Rocket mecha in that episode were actually causing people nightmares? PattyMan 21:35, 27 May 2011 (UTC)


Magic Guard Pokémon

So, if a Pokémon had the ability Magic Guard, and Darkrai put it to sleep, would it lose HP? - unsigned comment from Lapras (talkcontribs)

No. Magic Guard prevents all non-direct damage. Venus253 17:23, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Multiple Darkrai

Does this ability's effect stack? That is, if I had 2 or 3 Darkrai out at once in a double/triple battle, would a sleeping foe lose 2/8 or 3/8 of its total HP each turn? ~ Serial Colour 17:25, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Sudden Unexpected Nocturnal Death Syndrome (S.U.N.D.S)

I think that Bad Dreams is a reference to Sudden Unexpected Nocturnal Death Syndrome (S.U.N.D.S.). It's highly unlikely, but I think it could explain how Darkrai's Ability works. LittleOmu (talk) 00:03, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Possible, not probable. The evidence lines up, but it is unlikely that Game Freak or Nintendo would so brazenly allude to a serious cause of actual death. -- MAGNEDETH 00:13, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
Ah, okay then. I think the move Nightmare might also be in the same position as the Ability Bad Dreams. LittleOmu (talk) 01:31, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
