Once the Member Card is received, go to the Harbor Inn in Canalave City, where a strange old man will appear. The player will sleep in bed, have a nightmare, and travel to Newmoon Island, where Darkrai can be encountered. If Darkrai is captured, a booming voice will talk to the player and the player will wake up from their nightmare with Darkrai either in their party or in the PC. The player can rebattle Darkrai again, if fled from or fainted. Before the player may enter the Harbor Inn using the Member Card, the player must first meet Cresselia, obtain the Lunar Wing, and use it to dispel the nightmares Darkrai inflicts on Eldritch's son.
