Our second star this week is Dialga, Pokémon Diamond's covermonster. Dialga is revived by Team Galactic with the similar aim of using its power over time itself to restart the universe, and is stopped by Sinnoh's trio of guardian spirits. Dialga's type combination protects it from its susceptibility to both of the Dragon type's Ice and Dragon weaknesses, but opens it up to two more common types, Fighting and Ground. Dialga's signature move, Roar of Time, is more powerful at face value, but leaves Dialga immobile the following turn.

To see exactly what Dialga's power can do, check out the video below. If you missed any of our previous PokemonRadar coverage, you can click here for a full list of previous weeks' Pokemon, or hit the Movies tab to see videos of previously featured Pokemon.
