(Palkia named after an asteroid makes sense since it's a space god, but what's Dialga have to do with Dalgarno? the asteroid doesn't seem to have anything to it that could inspire Dialga, and Alex Dalgarno himself was a theoretical physicist, but his contributions were more on the topics of chemistry, atmospheric, molecular and astro physics than like, general relativity or something.)

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. In the dimension where Origin Forme Dialga lives in, time is said to be constantly moving in different directions and speeds.<ref>https://legends.pokemon.com/en-us/pokemon/dialga/</ref> It has been shown to be very protective of its home. It also tends to have violent conflicts with its counterpart Palkia.
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|space-time rift]] caused by {{p|Giratina}}, which create [[alpha Pokémon]] and cause [[Noble Pokémon]] to go berserk. Dialga is capable of [[Talking Pokémon|speaking through telepathy]] as seen when it communicated through leader of Diamond Clan, [[Adaman]].
