The Pokémon Company has just revealed a new gameplay trailer for Pokkén Tournament DX, showing off Darkrai’s lethal move-set.

In the short clip, viewers will witness Darkrai as it annihilates Mewtwo in combat. Several notable moves shown in the video include Nasty Plot, Nightmare, and Dream Eater. Based on the gameplay trailer, it appears that Darkrai’s playstyle will revolve around setting the pace of the fight while maintaining space between your opponent.

Also referred to as the Pitch-Black monster in the main series, Darkai is a Dark-type Pokémon that lures people and Pokemon to sleep before giving them nightmares. Despite never appearing in the Wii-U version of Pokkén Tournament, Darkrai was patched into the Arcade version of the game. In addition to making an appearance in Pokkén Tournament DX, Darkrai has also appeared in several other Pokémon spin-offs including the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series and Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.

You can check out the gameplay footage down below. If you would like more information on the game, check out some new screenshots as well as two new trailers for the game.

Pokkén Tournament DX will release exclusively on Nintendo Switch on September 22nd, 2017.
