How to Get Dialga

Choose Diamond Clan in the Main Story

Hisui Region Clans
Diamond Clan Pearl Clan

Near the end of the game, you'll get a choice between the two clans of the Region: the Diamond Clan and Pearl Clan. Your choice between the two clans will dictate which Pokemon you'll be facing as the Final Boss.

By choosing the Diamond Clan, you will fight alongside Dialga and face both the Origin and Standard Form of Palkia, a legendary Water and Dragon type Pokemon.

Should You Choose Adaman or Irida? Diamond or Pearl Clan Choice

Dialga vs Origin Dialga

Differences Between Dialga and Origin Dialga

Dialga ImageDialga Dialga (Origin Forme) ImageDialga (Origin Forme)
Roar of Time Power: 120
Accuracy: 90
Power: 140
Accuracy: 75
Base Attack Stat 120 100
Base Sp. Def Stat 100 120

Dialga is recommended for a more reliable Roar of Time

While Roar of Time gets a +20 increase in Power when Dialga is in its Origin Forme, the drop to 75 Accuracy can be really detrimental, especially since it only has 5 PP.

Despite the better bulk that Dialga will gain, we still recommend sticking with the standard Dialga.

Dialga - Description

BDSP - Dialga in Spear Pillar

The image above shows Dialga's depiction in Pokemon BDSP

Dialga is one of the deities of the Sinnoh Region. With the power to control time, it is said that time only began flowing when Dialga was born. In the Hisui Region, Dialga is the deity that Adaman and the Diamond Clan worship and revere as the Almighty Sinnoh.

Dialga was first introduced in the Generation 4 games. The antagonists of that game, Team Galactic, sought to capture Dialga for themselves to help aid in the creation of a new world.
