Yep, like the title says I am new to these forum boards, was looking into building a varied collection of competitive Pokemon for my niece to use.

Basically I picked up the Darkrai from the Toys R Us event and was looking into making it a sweeper probably. Here are the stats as of current:

Timid
252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 6 SDef
Roar of Time - (Looking to replace, possible with Dark Pulse)
Spacial Rend - (probably keep unless there is a better move set to replace it)
Nightmare - (Dream Eater perhaps?)
Dark Void - (just replaced hypnosis)

Then I also have another Darkrai that is Gentle nature whom I haven't EV trained at all yet.

So any suggestions or advice is much appreciated.

Calm mind instead nightmare, and you should have dark pulse for stab.

Darkrai rarely uses its dragon moves. First of all, roar of time is a two-turn move and therefore sucks, and spacial rend is rarely of use either. Nightmare is also a bad move, since it is cured by a simple switch out. Check this page (http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/darkrai)for the most widely used darkrai sets.

Yeah, it shouldn't have Spacial Rend, cause that has absolutely no coverage in Ubers. D: (Sarcasm)

Dark Pulse/Ice Beam/Thunder/Dark Void is a what I usually run. Focus Punch in the Space of Thunder is good, but you probably cant use it too well without Hasty+Atk Evs.
