Palkia (Japanese: パルキア Palkia) is a Water/Dragon-type Legendary Pokémon.

Palkia is the version mascot of Pokémon Pearl, appearing on the boxart.

Biology

Physiology

Palkia looks less dinosaur-like than Dialga, as it stands upright and possesses wings, although it does not possess the ability to fly more than a couple feet off the ground. It has plates on its shoulder area, where two pink pearls reside. Palkia has a long neck and a powerful tail.

Gender differences

Palkia is genderless.

Special abilities

Palkia has the ability to warp space. In the Pearl version of the game, it is mentioned on the statue in Eterna City that it can create alternate realities.

Although it is not an ability, it should be noted that, because of Palkia's type, its only weakness is the dragon type.

Palkia is the only Pokémon that can utilize the Lustrous Orb.

Palkia is the only Pokémon capable of learning Spacial Rend naturally.
