no edit summary
The Origin Forme of Dialga changes drastically from the usual sauropod-like creature of its other Forme, being a hybrid between the original design, dragon and a centaur, resembling its creator {{p|Arceus}}. The entire body of Dialga becomes larger. The back legs of Dialga become unguligrade in shape and have pointed tips instead of feet. The front legs are noticeably larger, with three distinct rhomb-shaped claws on the underside. Further up, Dialga's knees have rectangular, long protrusions. The chest plate is gone, however, it has a polygonal shape similar in its place. The entire neck of Dialga has two large shapes, one small pricket on each side and above them two larger ones at the middle of the neck. The large panel-like construct has a diamond-shaped protrusion pointing out. The three spines located on the back of the neck are longer and sharper. The head of Dialga has longer fang-like horns connected to a plate mask covering its lower jaw, which can shift angle to reveal the mouth. The crest's lower spikes are now part-covered by the new plate mask. Around Dialga's abdomen is a cross attached to a small wheel reminiscent of Arceus's cross-wheel. The fin-like plate on Dialga's posterior has a star-shaped layer on top of it. The tail is much shorter and crystal-shaped. The coloration of Dialga is nearly completely dark-blue. The crest, head stripe, knee protrusions and the cross is light blue. The tips of Dialga's fin plate and feet are dark grey. The diamond in its neck retains the same deep blue color.
Dialga can warp time by either speeding it up, slowing it down, or stopping it altogether. It can also [[Time travel|travel through time]] to visit the past, present, and future. It is said that time started moving when Dialga was born and will continue flowing as long as Dialga's heart still beats. Dialga has the power to create a new universe by itself or with {{p|Palkia}}. As Dialga primarily resides in a [[Dimensions|different dimension]], its behavior is nearly impossible to study. It has been shown to be very protective of its home. It also tends to have violent conflicts with its counterpart {{p|Palkia}}. Dialga has been referred to a deity in [[Sinnoh myths]]. It is the [[Signature move|only known Pokémon]] that can learn {{m|Roar of Time}}, the move can also be charged into a more powerful version while the Pokémon is in its Origin Forme, as shown in the boss battle in [[Pokémon Legends: Arceus]].
The Origin Forme of Dialga is said to be Dialga's true form. It is said to possess colossal strength and resemble its creator, {{p|Arceus}}. Dialga's transformation into its Origin Forme is triggered by a radiant light. In the Origin Forme, Dialga can unleash meteors, purple waves, and light blue shockwaves that can harm humans. In the past, Dialga was worshipped by the [[Diamond Clan]], who referred to it as "almighty Sinnoh". Dialga and Palkia can control and spread the space-time distortions caused by {{p|Giratina}}, which create [[alpha Pokémon]] and cause [[noble Pokémon]] to go berserk. Dialga is capable of speaking through telepathy as seen when it communicated through leader of Diamond Clan, [[Adaman]].
Dialga made its physical debut in ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'', where it fought with {{mov|Palkia}} and {{OBP|Darkrai|M10}} in a {{pkmn|battle}} that nearly destroyed [[Alamos Town]]. It then briefly reappeared in ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''. During its trip back to its own dimension, Dialga ended up in the [[Reverse World]] and got attacked by {{mov|Giratina}}, who had been angered by Dialga and Palkia's fight in the previous movie.
In ''[[M12|Arceus and the Jewel of Life]]'', Dialga was shown for the first time with both the other members of [[Creation trio|its trio]]. After being called by [[Sheena]] to stop a spatial distortion, it briefly fought with Giratina once more. Later, it returned to help Palkia and Giratina fight {{OBP|Arceus|M12}}. After being injured, it sent Sheena, {{Ash}}, and {{ashfr}} [[Time travel|back in time]] to fix Arceus's betrayal.
=====Dialga (recurring)=====
* [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness|Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness]] [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky|& Sky]]: Dialga appears in the main storyline, but mostly as [[Primal Dialga]]. In the future, because of the collapse of the [[Temporal Tower]], Dialga has lost control of itself and has entered a state of self-preservation, keeping time frozen and refusing to let it flow properly. When the {{player}} and partner return from the future and arrive at the collapsing Tower, they must beat almost-Primal Dialga in battle and restore the Tower. After putting some sense into it, Dialga is so grateful that it revives the player (who was erased from existence). After going back to Dialga at the top of Temporal Tower, it decides that the player wants a rematch. Once defeated, Dialga joins the player's team. <br> In the Sky-only Special Episode [[In the Future of Darkness]], after the final battle between Primal Dialga and the trio of {{mdc|Grovyle|2}}, {{mdc|Dusknoir|2}} and {{mdc|Celebi|2}}, all of them start to disappear due to the past finally being changed by the player, but are saved by [[Arceus (Pokémon)|an implied higher being than Dialga]], who also restores Dialga to its normal state.
* [[Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia]]: Dialga appears as a bonus boss during one of the Ranger Net extra missions. Dialga was injured from a battle with Palkia and entered [[Almia Castle]] to recover. It caused a time distortion due to its wounds and sent the main character and {{Ra|Wendy}} [[Time travel|back in time]] to before the events of the game started by using {{m|Roar of Time}}.
* [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]]: Dialga appears in the optional Ranger Net extra mission Pledge to Arceus. It must be captured along with its counterparts Palkia and Giratina in the Sky Fortress to access Arceus.
