Is Darkrai evil?

The Pokedex says it doesn't mean harm. However, you have the completely evil one in Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time.

Completely random question, I know. I'm just wondering.

I'm sure it was just a plot point in the anime special to depict an Antagonist. xD

However, even in the main series right now, in the Sinnoh Championship, the guy with a Darkrai seems pretty evil, and the Darkrai itself doesn't look too nice. :P

I think, while Darkrai is probably a well-natured Pokemon, its image depicts evil and mean to screenwriters.

For Explorers of time I was more talking about the game. However, I am sure it is all the same. So, Darkrai is like most Pokemon then, if the trainer is evil they can be considered more evil than other Pokemon.
I've stopped watching the TV series back around the 6th Gym leader in Hoenn. But I have a question: How are there multiple legendaries? I really don't think there are two Darkrai. Also, how did some guy get a Darkrai?
Well, the coelocanth, an ancient fish said to be extinct for over 100 million years, was discovered in the 20th century. Recently, a small school of about 500 Coelocanth were found off the coast of Africa. Because they are so scarce, and hold historic significance because of their lizard-like fins, they are deemed a "legendary" fish.

Same with the Pokemon. In the games, they're unique, but in the anime, they are extremely scarce, and have cultural, Religious, and/or historic meaning. Ever notice how all of the legends, even in the older seasons, were based around Legendary Pokemon?

It's for these reasons that both Pokemon, and animals, are deemed legendary, even if they aren't unique.
Also, I'll be logging off now. Have a bonfire to go to. I pray I won't give in to temptation, and end up hungover tomorrow, LOL.
Charyou tree in response to the bonfire part. (Dark Tower reference.)
