View Full Version : How to get Darkrai and Sheimi (Japanese version only)

04-09-2007, 10:55 PM
Note that this is NOT mine, I got it from another site. To see full glitch, go to http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/ds/file/925602/47530.

Make sure you follow directions correctly. People have lost valuable data due to not performing the glitch exactly right. It is an easy process, but it can also be safe if directions are followed. While I would not want to hurt anyone's saved data, there are still those "completionists" out there that are just as bummed out as I am that they'll probably never acquire either Darkrai or Sheimi legitimately unless they go through with this.

Note this is a GLITCH; it can ruin the game. It also only works in the Japanese version.

The first thing you do is travel to the room of the first fight of the
Elite Four. When you arrive there, walk back towards the door that locked
behind you when you entered. While looking towards that door, and as far as you can walk up to it, have a Pokemon use the move Surf. Eheheheheheh... Can't you just see Dawn jumping on a Blastoise and Surfing on him through a door? Yeah... Anyway, your character will jump through the door onto that Pokemon using Surf! Yeah! That is really weird! It is! Really!

You have now wound up past the game's normally travelable areas, past
boundaries and into a void. Again, don't worry. You can walk in throughout this void as far as you please, but because this is a very dangerous glitch, you'll need not to move an inch, er, pixel, but only in the right direction and distance! Don't move yet! From here, you will have the ability to visit a number of places. I have provided safe directions to three significant locations: Where Darkrai and Sheimi are, and right in the middle of the (drumroll) Hall of Fame!


To access Darkrai, from where you should now be standing, and using the
Poketch's built-in Step Counter (Step Counter... Did they get that Disney thing out of a cereal box?), walk 146 steps to the east. After that, walk
254 steps south, for a total of 400 steps.

If you feel you've messed up, you can always fly from where you are to the
game's other areas. The next part is what can mess some people up very easily, as you will have to be unusually still for a certain amount of time...

Now, use the Explorer Kit to go underground. This will cause you to save. When you go underground, DO NOT MOVE A DARNED PIXEL MORE! Simply resurface. Guess where you are? You're at New Moon Island! How neat is that! The place looks a little messed up, but don't worry about that. Heheheh, like Glitch City in R/B/Y. Maneuver yourself west around the glitchy visuals for a short distance, or look at your Map to help clear it up, then afterwards travel north into the woods. Floating right before you is the rare Pokemon Darkrai! (Dun dun dun!)

If you've already beaten the game, Darkrai shouldn't give you many problems.

Darkai's common statistics:

National Pokedex entry number: #491
Height: 4'11", or 1.5 meters
Weight: 111.3 lb., or 50.6 kilograms
Gender Ratio: Genderless
Base Happiness: 0
Species: Darkness Pokemon
Evolves into: Not applicable
Evolves from: Not applicable

Darkrai's battle statistics:

Type: Dark
Ability: Bad Dreams
Level found: 40
Catch Rate: 3/255

Congratulations! Once you're done with either capturing or killing it, you can Fly away at your earliest convenience. If you can't, know that that sometimes can happen in some Japanese games, so turn off your game and try it again.


Sheimi is also acquired in the exact same way, but it's in a different
location. It is easier, when you start all over again, to reset your Poketch's
pedometer, as you can very easily get lost. You shouldn't have to needlessly
lose time, because, again, this is a very easy glitch. After you wind up again
in the void outside the door of that same room, walk 200 steps east.
Afterwards, walk 363 steps south, totaling to 563 steps taken. After that, walk
722 steps east, totaling to 1285 steps. From where you stand, walk 19 steps
west, totaling to 1304 steps.

Don't think you can shorten the 722 steps east by 19 to reach the same place--
trust me, it won't work. Make sure you go 722 steps east, and only then take 19
steps west. It is important that you follow directions for your safety. Again,
go underground with your Explorer Kit, and without moving, immediately
resurface. Look at your Map Key Item to help take care of the visual
glitchiness you are probably experiencing. You're now below Flower Paradise with Sheimi straight ahead of you.

Sheimi's common statistics:

National Pokedex entry number: #492
Height: 0'8"
Weight: 4.6 lb.
Gender Ratio: Genderless
Base Happiness: 100
Species: Gratitude Pokemon
Evolves into: Not applicable
Evolves from: Not applicable

Sheimi's battle statistics:

Type: Grass
Ability: Natural Cure
Level found: 30
Catch Rate: 45/255

Keep in mind that it doesn't work with all Japanese games.
The newer ones have already got the gltich removed.
I didn't try out if it's in mine yet...

Wowee.. useful guide even though I don't have the Japanese version. But my friend does and he claims it has the glitch! I'll just have to persuade him to help me get Shaymin, which is so cute!

You might even want to try printing it! Also note that I did some editing to the glitch, so it is partially mine, but give the site it came from most of the credit. I also am doing Google sprites below!

Well then, you're very very welcome! It actually said for Pearl, but I'm pretty sure it'll work in Diamond, too...
