It briefly battled Giratina when it arrived to capture Dialga again in revenge only to be stopped by Ash and Sheena convincing Giratina that Dialga had been misunderstood. Later when Arceus appeared to pass out it's judgement Dialga appeared alongside Palkia and Giratina to stop it. Dialga played a major role by transporting Ash and his friends back in time to stop Damos from betraying Arceus. Dialga was later healed alongside Palkia and Giratina by Arceus and flew off to it's own dimension.

Dialga (Japanese: ディアルガ Diaruga) is a Steel/Dragon-type Legendary Pokémon. Dialga is the Version Mascot for the game Pokémon Diamond. It is Palkia's rival.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Dialga is a sauropod-like Pokémon. It is mainly dark blue with some gray metallic portions, such as its chestplate, which has a diamond in the center. It also has various light blue lines all over its body. It has a somewhat wing-like structure on its back, and a crest on its head, resembling a type of dinosaur. Dialga also has two horns on top of its head, two fang-like horns around its mouth, long claws, and a short tail.

Special AbilitiesEdit

Dialga has the ability Pressure, which causes the opposing Pokémon to use twice as much PP for every successful hit.

Additionally, Dialga has the ability to control time. Dialga, like many other Dragon type Pokémon, can use many different elemental attacks. It is also one of the few Pokémon that can learn the move Aura Sphere. Capturing it gives you an item called the Adamant Orb, which powers Dialga's attacks.

Dialga is the only Pokémon that can learn the move Roar of Time, its signature move, aside from the special Event Pokémon Darkrai given in the Tenth Movie and in the Toys R' Us Nintendo World Tour, the Pokémon Smeargle, who can Sketch the move, Pokémon with Metronome, a Pokémon using Mirror Move immediately after Dialga uses the move, and a Level 100 special Event Arceus.

TriviaEdit

  • Dialga has no known gender, but in the Mystery Dungeon games, it is referred to as a male.
  • Dialga is derived from "Diamond", as Palkia's is derived from the Japanese word for "Pearl". It may also be derived from dial, referring to its time-based capabilities.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Dialga.
  • Dialga is the only Dragon-type Pokémon not to be weak to Dragon-type moves.
  • Despite being able to levitate, it does not have the ability Levitate and thus remains susceptible to Ground type moves (unless taught Magnet Rise by the move tutor in Platinum).
  • In the anime, Dialga's rear spikes grow whenever it uses Roar of Time.
  • Dialga is the only legendary dragon in the quadrupedal class in the Pokédex. Palkia, Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem are bipedal, Rayquaza, Origin Giratina and Zygarde are snake-like, and Altered Giratina has six legs.
  • In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Darkness, Dialga was the one who created the Hidden Land. Ironically, he is also restricted from going back there when on an adventure.
  • The fact that Dialga has to rest after he uses the move Roar of Time may refer to releasing the power of time and stopping himself from moving.
