'''Palkia''' (Japanese: '''パルキア''' ''Palkia'') is a major character from ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]''. Palkia reappeared alongside the other members of [[creation trio|its trio]] in ''[[M12|Arceus and the Jewel of Life]]''.
==HistoryIn the movies==
In ''The Rise of Darkrai'', Palkia engages in a massive battle with its enemy, {{mov|Dialga}}, in the [[Unown Dimension]]. Palkia ends up getting injured by Dialga's {{m|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.

In ''[[M12|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 were never meant to meet, intersected due to {{mov|Arceus|Arceus|12}}'s preparations 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 {{mov|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.
===Personality and characteristics===
Palkia appears to be a very territorial Pokémon, as it battled with Dialga when it had believed that Dialga was invading its territory. It is very intelligent and strategic in battle, favoring the super-effective Aura Sphere in its battle against Dialga. It is also very tough and resistant to injury; even when its pearl was damaged, it did not seem to be affected and was able to battle just fine and use its Spacial rend normally. It did, however, run away from Dialga due to this injury. It can also be helpful, protecting Ash and his friends from Arceus when it prepared to unleash judgment on humanity and saving Dialga from a spacetime distortion.
