The Cult of Darkrai is a cult interested in obtaining the Legendary Pokémon Darkrai. They are one of five cults based in the Torren region during the events of Pokemon Insurgence. Most of, if not all, members of the cult are currently trapped in the Dream Realm.

In the game

The player has yet to face any Darkrai Cultists in battle up to this point in the story, but based on Persephone's use of a Houndoom to incinerate two of her own Grunts, it is very likely that the cultists use Dark-type Pokémon. The cult is described as being the most mysterious, as it is known that they seek to obtain Darkrai, but it is completely unknown what they intend to do with it. The cult has succeeded in summoning Darkrai at least two different times; however, it appears unwilling to join their cause each time.

The Cult of Darkrai has yet to try and target any major locations in the overworld, but the cult did kidnap the protagonist at the very beginning of the game in order to erase their memories in exchange for Jaern sparing their base from his wrath. When Persephone fails to eliminate the player, Jaern threatens her once more, prompting her to seek out and deal with the player once again.

Persephone encounters the player again in Selene City, where she discusses Darkrai with her sister, Diana, in the hopes of learning why it refuses to join her. Discouraged by Diana's lack of knowledge in the area and losing to the player once again, she sets off to complete another objective.
