After taking the battle outside, Pryce and his [[Giovanni|two]] [[Lance|comrades]] realize that it and Palkia are calming down since they are trying to stop Giratina as well. The three men use combined attacks to subdue Giratina. Having been defeated, Giratina retreats to the Distortion World. Satisfied by Giratina's defeat and with Arceus being calmed, Dialga and Palkia are calmed and flies off to [[Sinnoh|a distant region]].

Dialga (Japanese: ディアルガ Dialga) is a dual-type Steel/Dragon legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Dialga is the version mascot of Pokémon Diamond, appearing on the boxart.

Along with Palkia and Giratina, it is a member of the Creation trio of Sinnoh, representing time.

Biology

Physiology

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 stripes. It has a fin-like structure on its back and a crest on its head, resembling a dinosaur. Dialga also has two horns on top of its head, two fang-like horns around its mouth, three spines on the back of its neck, long claws, and a short tail. The wing-like structure on its back can be used to focus the flow of time, as seen in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky.

Gender differences

Dialga is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Dialga has the ability to warp time by either speeding it up, slowing it down, or stopping it altogether.

Similar to most other Dragon-types, Dialga is capable of wielding various elemental attacks (except for Water attacks). Dialga can also utilize several Ground-, Rock- and Steel-type moves. It is one of the few Pokémon that can use Aura Sphere.

Dialga's powers can be amplified by the Adamant Orb.

Dialga is the only known Pokémon that naturally learns Roar of Time.

Behavior

Being that Dialga primarily resides in a different dimension, its behavior is nearly impossible to study. It has been shown that it is very protective of its home. It has also been shown that it has violent conflicts with Palkia, who can be considered as Dialga's rival or enemy.

Habitat

Dialga lives in another dimension, and can only be summoned to the main Pokémon universe by using the Red Chain. This dimension, as shown in the twelfth movie, is blue and full of floating diamonds and also the pathway through different time.

In the games, Dialga is located in the Spear Pillar at Mt. Coronet. In Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, Dialga may be found at the top of Temporal Tower, Temporal Pinnacle.

Major appearances

Dialga (movie)

Dialga appeared in the first three Diamond & Pearl series Pokémon movies. It was first shown in The Rise of Darkrai, where it fought with Palkia and Darkrai in a battle that nearly destroyed Alamos Town. The same Dialga appeared in Giratina and the Sky Warrior. On its return trip back to its own dimension, Dialga ended up in the Reverse World and got attacked by Giratina. The Renegade Pokémon had been angered by Dialga and Palkia's fight in the previous movie. Dialga's final movie appearance was in Arceus and the Jewel of Life. It was shown for the first time with both the other members of its trio. After being called by Sheena to stop a spatial distortion, it briefly fought with Giratina once more. Later, it returned to help Palkia and Giratina fight Arceus, and sent Sheena, Ash and his friends back in time to fix Arceus's betrayal.

Other

Dialga had a major appearance in The Battle Finale of Legend!, in the conclusion of Team Galactic's plot at Mt. Coronet. It is unknown if this is the same Dialga as that in the movies.

Minor appearances

Dialga made its debut in A Secret Sphere of Influence! in a fantasy.

An evil Dialga made two brief appearances in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky - Beyond Time & Darkness as the protector of the Time Gear.

Dialga made a brief appearance in Meowth's fantasy in For The Love of Meowth!.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

A Dialga summoned by Cyrus in Pokémon Adventures

Dialga is first seen in Diamond & Pearl chapter having been summoned by Cyrus along with Palkia with the Red Chain. It was used to fight with Palkia and create a disturbance in the Time-Space continuum which will allow Cyrus to create a new world free of emotions and war. Dialga was eventually stopped when Diamond's words reached it and later freed from Cyrus's control and defeated him. Dialga was later pulled into another dimension by a pair of mysterious black tentacles.

Dialga is later seen in Platinum chapter where Charon used his machine to cause it and the other legendary Pokemon to get into a huge fight. However, with the help of the Sinnoh trainers, the Pokemon were released from Charon's control. Giratina attempts to attack it and Palkia one last time but it was stopped with the help of Volkner and Flint.

It was shown how Dialga was brought back to life in HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter. The Rocket Executives used Arceus' power to create the three dragons of Sinnoh. Remembering its past conflict in the ancient past, it and Palkia battles Giratina, starting a clash that threatened to destroy the fragile dimension that the Sinjoh Ruins were in. Knowing that the dragons must be stopped and because he had experience with time, Pryce battles Lance and uses his Swinub's ice attacks to catch Dialga by surprise. Dialga reverts the attack with Roar of Time but Pryce was barely fazed by the attack thanks to his long stay in the voids of time. After taking the battle outside, Pryce and his two comrades realize that it and Palkia are calming down since they are trying to stop Giratina as well. The three men use combined attacks to subdue Giratina. Having been defeated, Giratina retreats to the Distortion World. Satisfied by Giratina's defeat and with Arceus being calmed, Dialga and Palkia are calmed and flies off to a distant region.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!, Hareta and Mitsumi set out on a journey with the intention of finding the god-like Pokémon, Dialga. Oddly, Palkia does not receive a mention until the fifth volume.

In The Advent of the Legendary Pokémon!! Cyrus successfully controlled Dialga after he gained control of the Red Chain. When Hareta tried to snap Dialga out of Cyrus's control, it was able to flee from Cyrus.

In the Arceus and the Jewel of Life manga

In the twelfth movie manga adaption, Dialga, along with the members of its trio, was summoned by Sheena to help Ash and his friends. Dialga, Palkia, Giratina battle Arceus and it soon puts Sheena and the others in the past to uncover the betrayal Sheena's ancestor made.

In the TCG

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Dialga on the Spear Pillar

Dialga appears as a stage Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, along with Palkia, Cresselia, and the lake guardians on the stage Spear Pillar. It affects the stage much differently than that of its counterpart, such as slowing down time, and even going off its post to attack the players in the middle. It can also distort the stage, like Palkia, but only slightly and not as extreme, as well as shoot beams from various locations.

Trophy Information

"A Temporal Pokémon. This legendary Pokémon is talked about as a deity in fables passed down through generations in the Sinnoh region. Identifiable by the diamondlike crystal in the center of its chest, Dialga is said to have set time in motion at the moment of its birth. Its fearsome Roar of Time attack is so powerful that it must refrain from attacking on the next turn. It is Diamond's mascot."

Game data

NPC appearances

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky: Dialga appears in the main storyline, but mostly as Primal Dialga (Japanese: やみのディアルガ Dark Dialga). In the future, because of the collapse of the Temporal Tower, Dialga has lost control of itself and has entered a state of self-preservation, keeping time frozen and refusing to let it flow properly. When the player and partner return from the future and arrive at the collapsing Tower, they must beat Primal Dialga in battle, who has almost completely turned Primal, and restore the Tower. After putting some sense into it, Dialga is so grateful that it revives the player (who was erased from existence). After going back to Dialga at the top of Temporal Tower, it decides that the player wants a rematch. Once defeated, Dialga joins the player's team.
  • Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia: Dialga appears as a bonus boss during one of the Ranger Net extra missions. Dialga was injured from a battle with Palkia and entered Almia Castle to recover. It caused a time distortion due to its wounds and sent the main character and Wendy back in time to before the events of the game started by using Roar of Time.
  • Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs: Dialga appears in the optional Ranger Net extra mission Pledge to Arceus. It must be captured along with its counterparts Palkia and Giratina in the Sky Fortress to access Arceus.

Trivia

Origin

Dialga, along with Palkia, may be based on the Shinto legend of Izanami and Izanagi, who are said to have created one island with a spear, erected a pillar on it, and from there created the islands of Japan. Appearance-wise, Dialga seems to be based on short-necked sauropod dinosaurs such as Cameosaurus or Brachytrachelopan while its head is reminiscent of H. R. Giger's Xenomorph, an extraterrestrial species that is the primary antagonist in the Alien franchise. Its type is Steel possibly due to the hardness of diamonds, or the fact that most parts of a clock are made of metal, such as the gears. Its turquoise pattern on its body is vaguely reminiscent to clock hands, interestingly, the ends of the "clock hands" are diamond-shaped.

Name origin

Dialga is derived from diamond. Ga may be a corruption of gon from dragon. It may also involve dia (Spanish for day, referring to a unit of time), dial (as in sundial, an instrument used to tell time using shadows on a clock face), or dia (Greek for through, as in to go "through" time).
