Dialga (ディアルガ, Dialga) is a creature from the Pokémon series.
Dialga is a Steel/Dragon-type Legendary Pokémon and the version mascot of Pokémon Diamond and its remake Pokémon Brilliant Diamond. Dialga is categorized within the Pokédex at #483 as the "Temporal Pokémon". It has the ability to control time, and it is revered as a deity in Sinnoh's lore. In Pokémon Diamond, Team Galactic attempts to use its power to recreate the universe with Cyrus as a ruler. After defeating Cyrus at Spear Pillar, the player has a chance to battle and catch Dialga. In Pokemon Legends Arceus, Dialga can transform into its Origin Form using the Adamant Crystal.
Roar of Time is a special Dragon-type move with 150 base power and 90% accuracy. After the move is used successfully, the user cannot act on the next turn. Roar of Time is Dialga's signature move, and thus Dialga is the only Pokémon able to learn it naturally.
As a stage element
Dialga is one of three Legendary Pokémon that can appear and cause battle effects on the Spear Pillar stage, alongside Palkia and Cresselia. When the stage has a blue tint, either Dialga or Cresselia is the Pokémon for the match. Dialga can cause several different effects on the battle:
Dialga has no gameplay-related role, appearing only as a trophy.
As a stage element
Dialga reprises its role as a stage hazard on the returning Spear Pillar stage. Spear Pillar now allows for any of the three Legendary Pokémon to appear each time, rather than being set for the whole match. Unlike in Brawl, Cresselia is now signified by the stage's color tint not changing from its new default green, rather than using Dialga's blue.
Dialga appears as a spirit in Ultimate. It is an Ace rank Primary Spirit of the Grab type.
Dialga's Spirit battle involves defeating Giant Lucario on Spear Pillar. The battle conditions are:
For this battle, Dialga is the only one of Spear Pillar's three Pokémon that will appear on the stage.
