Can you trade Darkrai in Pokémon GO? The Pokémon is one of the rarest in the franchise, one of two members of the Lunar duo. A slew of players managed to catch their first ever Darkrais in Wednesday's Darkrai legendary raid, and many of those players are now curious about whether they can trade the Pokémon off.

Players who couldn't make it to the raids may be even more anxious to see Darkrai available for trade, as the only thing worse than a bad Darkrai is no Darkrai at all.

Unfortunately for all the Pokémon GO players looking to trade Darkrais, the Pokémon is a mythical Pokémon. Mythical Pokémon are like legendary Pokémon, but perhaps even more special: There are canonically only one of each mythical Pokémon. Other mythical Pokémon include Mew, Celebi, Jirachi and, of course, Lunar duo component Cresselia.

Players who missed the most recent Darkrai raids will have to wait until Niantic announces the next set of raids.
