As Palkia N/A

Palkia is a major character from The Rise of Darkrai. Palkia reappeared alongside the other members of its trio in Arceus and the Jewel of Life.


In The Rise of Darkrai, Palkia engages in a massive battle with its enemy, Dialga in another dimension. Palkia ends up getting injured by Dialga's Roar of Time and flees to the normal dimension; its destination being Alamos Town. Due to this, all the Pokémon having nightmares wake up. Simultaneously, the presence of Palkia causes the dimension Dialga and Palkia were fighting in to disintegrate the normal dimension little by little.

Dialga later arrives, enraged that Palkia was a coward for fleeing, and the two engage battle, causing enormous damage to Alamos Town. Ash and Dawn manage to magnify the volume of the song "Oración", soothing Dialga and Palkia in mid-fight. After that, Ash and Dawn insisted Palkia repair the town and send it to the correct dimension. Palkia then flew away.

In Giratina and the Sky Warrior, Palkia did not appear but was mentioned in a flashback of its battle in Alamos Town. However, its counterpart Dialga played a minor role in the movie.

In Arceus and the Jewel of Life, it was revealed that the reason why Dialga and Palkia clashed in Alamos Town was because their dimensions, which are not meant to ever meet, intersected due to Arceus preparing to awaken. As a result, Palkia believed that Dialga had invaded its territory, a mistake shared by Dialga. Sheena used her powers to touch a Pokémon's heart to reach Palkia and explain, ending the feud with Dialga once and for all. Later, Palkia helped to protect Ash and friends from Arceus's attacks, however it was seriously injured by the Alpha Pokémon alongside Dialga and Giratina. Eventually, when Ash and the others had successfully changed the timeline for the better, Arceus healed Palkia, Dialga, and Giratina, and Palkia returned to its own dimension to live peacefully once more.
