Dark Void is Darkrai's Signature move, and cannot be mimicked by any other Pokemon, but it can learn Hypnosis.
Dark void only has 50% accuracy while Hypnosis has 60%.
And almost no body wastes a move slot on Mimic.
So Is Dark Void just useless?

Why is this flagged?
Maybe they thought it was a bit opinionated, as it says "useless" and some may think it is good but some may think it's bad

The only advantage in using Dark Void over Hypnosis would be in double or triple battles, since Dark Void targets all adjacent opponents and can put multiple Pokemon to sleep at once as a result. Also, it had 80% accuracy prior to gen 7 so it was a much better move then, even in singles.

But they nerfed Dark Void, so now its pretty much useless in singles rite
yes, thats correct
Yes.  I always just use hypnosis most of the time.
