'''Dia''' (Japanese: '''ディア''' ''Dia'') is a recurring character who first appeared in ''[[SM100the {{series|Battling theSun Beast& Within!]]''Moon}}. He is a resident of the [[Ultra Ruin]], a world that was devastated by the appearance of the [[Ultra Beast]] {{DL|Ultra Beasts (anime)|Guzzlord}}, and a former member of the [[Ultra Rangers]].
In ''[[SM100|Battling the Beast Within!]]'', Dia encountered {{Ash}} and {{AP|Pikachu}} when they found themselves transported to his home world from an alternate [[Melemele Island]] by a {{Shiny}} {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Shiny Tapu Koko|Tapu Koko}} and the {{DL|Guardian deities (anime)|Tapu Koko}} of Ash's world. Ash and Pikachu were attacked by a Guzzlord, but Dia saved them using his friend {{p|Zeraora}}. After introducing himself, he explained to Ash what had happened to his world and then had a battle against Ash, which Dia was able to win. Dia eventually took Ash to some ruins, which Ash recognized as the [[Pokémon School]].
In ''[[SM101|Parallel Friendships!]]'', Dia explained to Ash and Pikachu how his universe is different compared to his. He later explained that the reason Ash was unable to use a [[Z-Ring]] is because his Tapu Koko left the [[Alola]] [[region]] and all life was destroyed by Guzzlord. Since that time, Dia became disillusioned with Tapu Koko and believed that his efforts of stopping the {{an|Ultra Beasts|Ultra Beast}} were hopeless. However, all of that changed when he witnessed Ash and Pikachu's {{pkmn|training}}, which turned into a competitive battle against Zeraora. While Pikachu won the match, it reinvigorated Dia and Zeraora's ambitions.
