You'll need to get yourself the Nintendo Member Card to do this. There are many Pokemon out there for you to catch within the recently released games, including the Platinum Version - but if you're going to add the incredibly special Pokemon Darkrai to you collection then you can only do it by using the Member card.

With the Member Card you can add the Pokemon to your collection and assembly by visiting the new location of the Newmoon Island on the game. You can find this Member Card on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection available on your Nintendo DS, DSi and 3DS. It's only available between now and September 13 though, so there's a chance you won't get it. For more information about this Member Card then go to www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/news/2009/how_to_catch_darkrai_ for even more information. The information generally just tells you how to go about getting the Member Card that you need to get the Pokemon.

You can of course get the Pokemon a couple of other different ways. You could trade the Pokemon with a friend for one of your other Pokemon, if they do not want this rare and shadow Darkrai Pokemon. This will give you instant access to the Pokemon without having you to find it and without you having to get any kind of Member Card.

If your friends do not have the Pokemon, though, you can also get it from a number of different cheat cartridges for games like this. Simply search Google for the different cartridges you can use to give yourself some of the best and rarest Pokemon in existence. You can buy them at many game and electronic shops throughout the United States so they're certainly not illegal.

Well guys, this is how I got my Darkrai in Pokemon Pearl. But I am pretty sure it works for Platinum too. ( It involved an Action Replay).
(* means a little info. About something)

1. First, I set in a code for a Membership Pass
* A Membership Pass is a Pass that lets you go into the house that is always locked in Canalave City. You can only use it ONCE though.*
2. After setting in the code, I turned on the game. I pressed L t R right before going into any Poke-mart.
3. Once in the Poke-mart, I spotted a man in green standing near the counter where you buy your goods. I went in front of him and pressed A.
4. After pressing the button (A), the man in green said, "Ah, you must be Allie(yes that is my character's name). I have a special gift for you." And he handed me the Membership Pass. It goes into your items or key items pocket.
5. After this I went to Canalve City(this is where the fun begins).
6. I went in front of the door to the house that is always locked. It's the one that's door is impossible to open.
7. Once in front of the door I pressed A. A caption popped up and said something about "Would you like to go in?" and I pressed Yes.
8. Once in, a man in sunglasses asked(actually demanded) to go rest. He led my character into a bed and then the screen went black.
9. When the screen cleared, I was on New moon Island. I headed into another part of the island(just like the other part of the island on Full moon Island with the Lunar Wing and Cresslia).
10. Once in that part of the Island, I stepped up a bit. In front of me was Darkrai. I went up to him and, ince in front of him, pressed A.
11. He made a freaky noise, and I battled him. ( I used a Master Ball to capture him.) And TA DA, I got myself a Darkrai!
This is the original way to get him. The other way is using Pokemon Modifier.
For the Membership code, go onto Google and type in code for Membership Pass in Pokemon Platinum.

O.k. Here's the deal. You need to use cheat or the ar. But anyway, you need the member card. If you have it, fine. You can follow the instructions. First, you have to go to canalave city, and on the left side, you will see 2 houses with   blue roof. Go to the bottom one and go in. You will see a kid on a bed. If you click him, he will say something like d d dar k or something like that. Go out, then you have to get the little feather from cresselia (I don't know the name of the little feather of cresselia). Talk to the sailor and to will get to fullmoon island. You get in somewhere. You see cresselia. She will disappear. Now she will be on your marking map. You see an item. Get that item. Get back to canalave city (you cannot fly from fullmoon island). Go to that house again. Give the kid the feather. Now get out and go to the right side. Do you remember the locked door on the top? Now youcan go in there. A man will be waiting for you. Now you are asleep. You are on newmoon island. You go in somewhere again. Darkrai will be waiting for you. Now the only thing for you to do is catching darkrai. If you have master balls, that's great. But else you need ultra balls, great   balls, quick balls, timer balls, premier balls, heal balls and luxury balls. Good Luck!

Ummm...... Sorry dude but you either received the event, or you get it from action replay, if however, you didn't get it from an event, you either got to wait and see if nintendo distributes another event ( which I doubt ) or you got to get ar (action replay) . I recommend buying action replay if you really badly want arceus, shaymin, darkrai, and any event pokemon I forgot to mention because it is only $20

You get the Member's Card, and, once you have used the Lunar Wing on the boy in Canalave, you go to the house above the poke center and open the door. You will fall asleep and wake up on an island. Go into the forest and you will find a level 50 Darkrai. You can only battle it once.

Darkrai, like a few other pokemon, was a Nintendo Event.
I suggest you think about investing in an action replay.
It's only 20 dollars in Toys R Us and it's really easy.
I just got mine today, and I already have Oak's Letter, Azure flute, Secret Key, Membership pass, and a Manaphy egg.

If not,
I suggest you find someone who's willing to trade a Darkrai with you and/or you find someone with an AR. It really isn't that bad on price.

This is all stupid. Of coarse, you must get nintendo event for the "Members Card" to enter the Newmoon island to catch Darkrai. But there is another way. Go to youtube and simply type "Pokemon Pearl/Diamond Tweaking glitch". This glitch doesnt need action replay and can be easily done if performed properly. This glitch would take about 2 hours at maximum (30 minutes of trying to perform tweaking, 1 hour to perform the void exploration, 30 minutes to catch darkrai. And not to mention this glitch can also help catch shaymin.)  So far, I think you need the following items: Berry map(Poketch app), explorer kit, a bike(set a max speed), a lot of pokeballs. This glitch must be done in Jubilife

If you have an action replay, go to the island that you get the lunar wing,( you have to have the cheat that lets you walk through walls)and head east, you will come across an island. That is eather new-moon island or new-moon island there on that island you will find darkria. This works in dimond and pearl, but it might work in new-moon to.(I don't know)

You go to the tv station at jubilife and then go up 2 floors (I think) there would be a man who asks you your opinion. You type in "happy together" then "wi-fi connection". You save then off it. There should be a green man in the pokemart and you get the mystry gift! P.S This only works from March-April

Rest of it I'm not so sure but go to canalave city, go to the man in locked house then sleep or somethin. Then go to newmoonisland! You shall meet Darkrai. Mwahahahahahaha

This works exactly like the cheat for diamond and pearl. Press L+R simultaneously to activate, and than talk to the fossil guy in the mining museum and he'll give you the Pokemon from the code.

P.S: You might want to copy and paste this to word and save it.

B2101D40 00000000
10000F28 00000xxx
D2000000 00000000
Where there is xxx enter one of the following code:

1EB-Darkrai
If You don't Have AR, Oh Well.

NOTE: To receive the Membership card that is needed to get Darkrai, you must do this before September 13, 2009. You do NOT need an Action Replay to get Darkrai this way. Also, I have learned from experience that Action Replays for DS do NOT work on Dsi's.
Go to Jubilife TV station. Climb up to the third floor and talk to the couple standing near the bottom of the screen. They will ask you 2 questions. When they ask the first question, Use the + Control Pad (also called the "D pad" or "Directional pad") to highlight the first empty box (the one on the left). Look at the bottom screen and press the button that says "ABC Mode" When a list of letters pops up, choose "E" and look for the word "Everyone", choosing it after you find it. Using the + Control Pad, highlight the other empty box. The list of letters should still be on the bottom screen. Select the letter "H" and then pick "Happy" from the list of words that pops up. Use the + Control Pad to select "Confirm" and hit the "A" button. They will ask you another question. Again, highlight the empty box on the left using the + control pad. Select "ABC Mode" again and pick "W" from the list. Choose the word "Wi-fi". Highlight the empty box on the right and choose "C" from the letter selection screen. Find and select the word "Connection" and then hit confirm. The people will say something about a mystery gift. When they're done talking, save it and shut it off.
If you have wi-fi on your DS then you're good to go. If you don't, read the wi-fi operations manual that came with your Pokemon Platinum Version to learn how to set up and use your wi-fi.
Now, start up your game. On the opening menu where you select to continue with the game, choose the new "Mystery Gift" option that should have appeared. Move towards the wi-fi source that you have set up on your DS and select "Receive Gift". Choose "Get via Nintendo WFC". And wait for it to connect to the wi-fi. While it is connecting, remain still and have the DS pointing towards the source of wi-fi. If it connects, then you should receive a Member Card and you will return to the menu. If it doesn't connect, then you should move to a different location and try again.
Now, start up your game and go to any PokeMart. In front of the counter, there should be a man wearing green. Talk to him and he will give you a Member Card. Go to the Canalave Inn (it's the locked building). You should be able to use it to get in but for some reason I can't. Well maybe it will work for all of you.

It was quite simple. First I went to Jubilife city. Then I went to the Jubilife tv Station's 3rd floor and on the lower half of the screen their should be a guy standing by a girl. Talk to him and he asks you what you think about TV. Answer the first open spot with (Everyone) and the second one with (happy) then confirm and he will ask for more info and answer with (wi-fi)+(connection) and he will give you the mystery gift for the opening options. After that save the game and shut it off. Then go to the main title and when you get to the part where you can continue or start over there should be a choice that says Mystery gift select it and goto receive gift then go to get via Nintendo WFC and you should get the member card. If so continue and go to the poke'mart in town talk to the guy standing in front of the desk and receive the member card. I would save the game just in case. Then during the night time visit Canalave city go to the harbor inn and you should be aloud in. Then a guy takes you to a bed where you fall asleep and you wake up on Newmoon Island. Fallow the path and enter the forest and It is important to save at this point. Then approach Darkrai who is at lv.50 and then catch him. Have fun!

I'm not sure, but I've heard you have to get black level on your trainer card which is the highest level (get it by Entering the hall of fame, complete the national pokedex, earn the platinum flag underground, win one contest at master rank, and win 100 battles at the battle tower) there should be a man in green in the pokemart he will give you something, go to a building in canalave and you should wake up at an island.

P.s the action replay doesnt work on this cheat and neither does shaman

Currently you can get Darkrai now...

When you turn on your game to the screen. Click on Mystery Gift and connect to the wifi connection if you have it and you will get a member card.

You will be allowed to enter the Inn in Canalave City that you can't open, though you can once you get the member card from Mystery Gift and get it from a guy in green from any of the poke mart's.

Hurry, cause who knows how long it will last. It just started sometime last week. I got my Darkrai, I would hurry if I were you!!

Actually, the real answer is that you require the key item Member's Card, which can be recieved via. Mystery Gift from August to September 13th (2009), or by using an Action Replay/GameShark to obtain the item. Then, go north of the Pokemon Center, where there should be a PSYDUCK and a girl, and a building with a sign on it. Press A in front of the door to the building, and you will use your Member's Card, and enter. There will be a man there (who may or may not actually be Darkrai in disguise) who will put you asleep, when you wake up, you will be on Newmoon Island. Follow the path, and then you shall encounter Darkrai, who awaits your challenge.

I'm an awesome pokemon player and I beat Pearl, Platinum,Leafgreen,Ruby,and Shappire in one day without cheats and captured every ledgendary you can without cheats. I can tell you that I have every rare pokemon that you can get with or without cheats. Using action replay is the only way to get Darkri without waiting for an event. Just go to Fullmoon Island at any time of day,then save your game and turn off your DS. Then put in an Action Replay after uploading it if you have to. Put it in Platinum WITHOUT TURNING OFF YOUR DS. Then pick your file and if you did it right, you would be on Fullmoon Island. Then just walk to your right. If this doesn't work use the Pokemon Modifier. Go to the calculator app on your poketech. Put in 490,Press L and then clear. Then you put in what level you want your Darkri press R DON'T CLEAR and walk into the grass until you see Darkri.
