Dialga is Pokémon Diamond's covermonster. Dialga's revived by Team Galactic with the 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, making its use risky.
