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 Gears]] to the tower to restore the flow of time, calm down Dialga, and prevent the future where darkness rules.
 
AlthoughLike all Dialga are normally genderless, this one is referred totreated as male;genderless duringfor gameplay, purposes; however, it is treatedaddressed aswith genderlessmasculine pronouns in dialogue.
 
==Physiology==
Primal Dialga has the body shape of a normal {{p|Dialga}}, but the color scheme is different. The blue color in its body is changed to dark navy blue, the "streamers" are recolored to orange, and the diamond in the chest is altered from blue to a cherry shade red, which is a sign of its berserk and savage state. This is caused by a collapsing [[Temporal Tower]], resulting in complete loss of self-control, which earns it the name of "Primal Dialga".

==Background==
{{spoilers}}
The Primal Dialga state is a result of {{mdc|Darkrai|2}}'s act of stealing the [[Time Gears]]; with the flow of time disrupted, Dialga becomes corrupted along with time itself. In an alternate future, [[Temporal Tower]] collapses, sending Dialga into aan primaluncontrollable 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 {{mdc|Grovyle|2}} and the player go back in time, Dialga sends its henchman {{mdc|Dusknoir|2}} 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.

However, as revealed in the {{g|Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky}} Special Episode [[In the Future of Darkness]], before they are erased from existence, Primal Dialga proceeds to punish Dusknoir for his failure, as well as Grovyle for trying to change the past. However, they escape, and eventually it's revealed that itPrimal Dialga's order was a plot for Dusknoir to take over Grovyle's body and return to the past to alter it. What Primal Dialga didn't count on was Dusknoir befriendingsympathizing with Grovyle and saving Grovyle.him at the last second; in response to this, Primal Dialga viciously attacks Dusknoir for his betrayal,. butIn whenthat moment, time starts to flow as a result of the player's victory in the past, and the returning flow of time affects Primal Dialga, causing it to go goescompletely berserk and actsact on pure instinct, which leads it to the Passage of Time at the peak of [[Vast Ice Mountain]]. Primal Dialga then battles Grovyle, Dusknoir, and Celebi, but is beaten. After the dark future is erased, Dialga, Dusknoir, Grovyle, and Celebi are spared, and Dialga is restored to its normal state of being. He then informs them they were likely saved by {{p|Arceus|a being even more powerful than him, implying {{p|Arceus}}.
 
The Dialga battled at Temporal Tower is not actually the same as the one from the future Grovyle comes from; when battled, Dialga still has a shred of its self left, and thus is not completely "primal" yet. This is shown by the future Primal Dialga only being able to communicate with agrowls roarand roars (which Dusknoir apparently understands). However, while not-quite-Primal Dialga is able to speak to the player and their partner using broken words.
