Well, That Could have been worse.

Seriously, Mewtwo getting pimped slap? Let's pray to God AND Arcius that this is as far as it goes. Right now they need all yhe help thwy can get and need to find a way to get Darkrai to help in a way that will make him happy with thw outcome. Like say the sister is going to stay a pokemon forever and be forced to answer for her deeds.

Darkrai we know that you despise her from the bottom of your heart. But just think for a moment, she could help save the world!

From cute to furious in less than a panel.

On the one hand it's bad that Darkrai is angry. On the other hand I kinda think Mewtwo had that slap coming for a while. Seriously, how did he think this wasn't gonna happen?

@Noobaraptor Where's Paragon Commander Shepherd when you need him? He could use that sliver tongue to fix this.

Did Darkrai seriously just slap the strongest pokemon in the world??

Darkrai is pure Dark type as well as a Shadow pokemon. And Shadow type is super effective against everything but itself. Do the math.

Well, thankfully it seems Darkrai is willing to help with the situation... very reluctantly. Probably gonna smack Lovrina in the face too after releasing her, though.

@PJSam And Mewtwo gets Aura Sphere naturally. Not as one-sided as you think.

I'm not saying it's one sided. I'm just saying that Mewtwo is by no means,"All powerful."

I bet the cliche way that Darkrai loses his shadow thing is that he comes to terms and forgives his enemy. Then again, he *is* XD-002 so I doubt that.

Then there's Jen. "Look, we both hate my sister but we need her!"
Actually, does Darkrai even know that Lovrina is Jen's sister?

@get in the bag nebby: I'm pretty sure he does. I seem to recall that while he was recovering from Gengar's Focus Blast, he told Jen that he chose her because he thought she was like her sister, so no harm would result from her absence.

Somehow, I kinda like Darkrai better this way-as much as he was hugged and cared for, I think somehow his shadow form better represents an actual pokemon, let alone a legendary pokemon-because allowing mortals to boss over him, hit him with their moves and behave as they please with him, while justifying it all for something he did way back in the past under another powerful effect that they probably have no idea what it was like to endure that. What I like about Darkrai is that he lets people know it was him, and takes the blame, despite not being fully responsible for what he did-we know he was responsible because he let us, we don't know how much, because he didn't think we'd care to understand.
Darkrai, IMO, should've had a nature similar to Mewtwo's, perhaps not the same given the savage past that Mewtwo holds, but at the very least been a pokemon that demonstrates a degree of wisdom that comes from being a legendary pokemon, and being around for as long as they do. Also given that Darkrai is mentioned as one of the "Firstborn" and has powers that even Victini doesn't, him looking like such a weak and pathetic creature seemed pretty out of place to me-then again it brings interesting questions to my mind of what the "shadow cleansing" could've done to him, possible amnesia(however that works for semi-corporeal shades), probably added a more corporeal body, which could be why he coughs up blood and has broken ribs-which taking one look at him seems rather odd-he's pretty clearly a ghost(despite his typing not being such), and his body is probably made of wisps and smoke, as it billows in the air. I guess, I'm overthinking all this, but I find it quite fun that this comic lets me be imaginative in between all the content that exists.
@PJSam and @Leafia_Barrett you both pose quite an interesting proposition IMO, as whether Darkrai(XD002) is a shadow pokemon or not is a bit debatable. If he is a shadow pokemon, then Mewtwo having aura sphere is of pretty much no good as it is not very effective against shadow pokemon, and discounting Darkrai's weakened state, the type advantage of the XD virus does make it pretty one-sided. But seeing how he took Gengar's focus blast, does call into question how much damage that move actually did-it seems like a lot what with the coughing and blood, but its equally possible that Darkrai is actually that weak.
