Yes, folks, it looks like the Darkrai Wi-Fi event has taken place a day early (as it often does in North America), meaning you can now hop on your Pokemon Black or White version, go to Mystery Gift, select Nintendo WFC, and then you'll be able to download a really cool Darkrai onto your game!
What moves does that Darkrai know? Well, nothing too fancy: Dark Void (its signature move), Faint Attack, Ominous Wind, and Nightmare. It does, however, come holding an Enigma Berry -- a very rare berry. It's also at level 50. The event has been confirmed for North America and the UK, but it should also work in Australia (confirmed for Australia! Yay!) or anywhere else using an English-language game (confirmed for Ireland, Finland, Denmark, and the Netherlands, as well as Uruguay and Brazil in South America, although it was not available in Singapore). Since other European countries received a Darkrai earlier, they may not get them, but if you happen to live somewhere else in Europe and are using a non-English-language game, go ahead and see if you can receive it! I'd love to get confirmation for other countries.
The above image links to Pokemon.com/EX, which at the time of this post, still has the Reshiram and Zekrom page up, but should change on the 9th to one featuring Darkrai. As I said in the previous update, you'll be able to watch Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai right on the site then, plus I'm sure there will be other cool Darkrai-related goodies in store.
Additionally, the Pokemon Global Link will be down for extended maintenance from June 5 - June 21! It is scheduled to be brought down at 3:00am Eastern Time. Make sure you don't have any Pokemon tucked in then, or you won't be able to take it out of the Dream World until after maintenance is complete!
Why are they performing maintenance? It's due to the revamped Pokemon Global Link 2.0, which will cater to both sets of Black and White as well as the new Black 2 and White 2. There's a bit of information revealed on it so far, such as the "cooldown time" between playing in the Dream World being reduced to 20 hours instead of 24 hours, potentially an online GTS type of system, and then this "Cool Hole" feature. It's also alluded to having some sort of benefit if you Game Sync both a Black or White game and a Black 2 or White 2 game. Thanks to Serebii.net for that bit.
I downloaded this around 6:30 o'klock finnish time (UTC+2)... I must be the 1st to do so in finland...
BTW I forgot my reshiram to dw... :cry:

My White duo! Completed national dex! Marriland Help Center original member.(W5157_7291_2528) 75% of Pokémon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their Pokémon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokémon up legally, put this in your signature.
@bombe32: Very cool! Thanks for confirming that, then! :D
I've gone ahead and updated that list in parenthesis up there to include any countries I've heard it works for. So far it sounds like any English-language European (or Australian) game will receive it. Singapore was not able to receive it, though, although they do receive a special Pikachu with the Light Ball coming up, so that's kind of neat.
