The Cult of Darkrai is the three-floored secret base of the Cult of Darkrai, where human sacrifices are made in order to summon the Legendary Pokémon, Darkrai. The player begins their adventure here.
When first starting the game
- After reading the dialogue between two cultists and their leader, Persephone, the player is saved from a Gengar's Dream Eater by a Mew.
- With Mew following behind, explore the remainder of this floor before heading up a set of stairs at the end of the path.
- Two paths exist on this floor, with only the path to the south being open at the moment. Begin to head down towards the stairs leading to the floor above.
- As the player is about to head up the stairs, read the dialogue that appears explaining Mew's Transform ability.
- After heading up the stairs, go up towards a blood-stained altar with two statues of Darkrai on each side.
- Stand in between the Darkrai statues and interact with the dried blood to obtain the DNA of a Darkrai Cultist.
- Talk to Mew and transform into a Darkrai Cultist before heading back downstairs.
- Interacting with the door in front of the previously inaccessible path to the right allows the door to open. The player may head back down the stairs to the left to pick up a few previously unobtainable items.
- After passing the scanner-activated door, follow the path leading upwards until the player comes across another staircase leading to the floor above.
- On the next floor, head up to witness a scene involving the sacrifice of a Darkrai Cultist and Darkrai's refusal to obey Persephone.
- After Persephone announces that she will check on the player's condition, head back downstairs.
- Once downstairs, head back in the direction the player previously traversed, but this time ignore the path leading back to the scanner-activated door and follow the path leading downward.
- Exit the base through the doorway at the end of the path.
