'''Primal Dialga''' (Japanese: '''やみのディアルガ''' ''Dark Dialga'') is a Pokémon that appears in {{g|Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness}} and {{g|Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky}}. It is located at the pinnacle of [[Temporal Tower]], and is the final boss of the game's main story line.
 
Primal Dialga is actually {{p|Dialga}} after losing control of its ability to manipulate time due to the collapse of the Temporal Tower. In this form, it is also incapable of logical reasoning or showing mercy, only seeking self-preservation and preventing time from flowing properly. The player must return the [[Time GearGears]]s to the tower to restore the flow of time, calm down Dialga, and prevent the future where darkness rules.
 
Although Dialga are normally genderless, this one is referred to as a male; during gameplay, however, it is treated as genderless.
==Background==
{{spoilers}}
The Primal Dialga state is a result of {{mdc|Darkrai|2}}'s act of stealing the [[Time GearGears]]s; with the flow of time disrupted, Dialga becomes corrupted along with time itself. In an alternate future, [[Temporal Tower]] collapses, sending Dialga into a primal rage and reducing it to a being running on primal instinct. In this state, it seeks only self-preservation, and does whatever is necessary to thwart any attempt to alter the past (and subsequently erase it from existence). When [[Grovyle (Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky)|Grovyle]] and the player go back in time, Dialga sends its henchman [[Dusknoir (Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky)|Dusknoir]] back in time as well to stop them. Primal Dialga is first seen after Dusknoir drags the player and their partner back to the future, where Primal Dialga orders Dusknoir to eliminate them. He then assists his six {{p|Sableye}} in trying to stop the group from going back in time once more, but fails due to the partner's quick thinking; Primal Dialga stops Celebi's time travel before they can reach the Passage of Time, but this still isn't enough to prevent their escape. Once the player and partner reach the summit of [[Temporal Tower]], the present day Dialga attacks them, believing they've come to destroy the Tower due to being in the process of transforming into Primal Dialga. They manage to defeat him and save the tower, restoring time and Dialga to their normal states, after which he thanks the player and their partner, grateful for all they've done. The future Primal Dialga, Grovyle, Dusknoir, and the player are all erased from existence due to being from a future which no longer exists. After the [[Temporal Tower]] incident, the present day Dialga returns the player to life as a show of gratitude for repairing the flow of time and the player's sacrifice, as well as the partner's sorrow at the loss of their friend.
