Darkness sometimes represent evil and crime, but Dark Pokémon are quite misunderstood there. Dark-type Pokémon are known for often using sinister and deceptive moves such as biting and stealing. Some Dark Pokémon include Sneasel, Absol, Poochyena, Umbreon and Houndour. This is also the only Pokémon type which does not have a gym (only some Elite Four members use them). They are often used by criminals as well. Dark Pokémon are usually seen at night, but they are seen in the daytime as well.

They are known as Darkness-types in the TCG.
