After that cut-scene with the Galactic Boss Cyrus, heal up your Pokemon and save your game. Battle Commander Jupiter and Commander Mars. Damion will be helping you in this fight.

 ----------------------- ----------------------------- ---------- 
| Boss                  | Pokemon                     | Rewards  |
----------------------- ----------------------------- ----------
|                       | Bronzor  (Lv. 41)           |   --     |
|                       | Bronzor  (Lv. 41)           |   --     |
| Commander Jupiter     | Golbat   (Lv. 42)           |   --     |
| Commander Mars        | Golbat   (Lv. 41)           |   --     |
|                       | Skuntank (Lv. 46)           |   --     |
|                       | Purugly  (Lv. 45)           |   $7280  |
----------------------- ----------------------------- ----------
| Damion will send his Munchlax out first. The thing is, his     |
| Munchlax is useless. It does prove useful as a cannon fodder   |
| though. But do try to knock it out, so you can force Damion to |
| send out some better Pokemon.                                  |
|                                                                |
| The foes' Bronzors are weak against Fire, so try to hit them   |
| with that attack type as much as possible. The Golbats are     |
| weak to Electric attacks, so moves like Thunder are very       |
| effective against them. As for Purugly and Skuntank, hit them  |
| with your strongest Fighting-type moves.                       |
----------------------------------------------------------------

After the battle, Damion will heal all your Pokemon and leave. Save your game. Battle Cyrus again.

 ----------------------- ----------------------------- ---------- 
| Boss                  | Pokemon                     | Rewards  |
----------------------- ----------------------------- ----------
|                       | Honchkrow (Lv. 45)          |   --     |
|                       | Gyarados  (Lv. 45)          |   --     |
| Galactic Boss Cyrus   | Weavile   (Lv. 48)          |   --     |
|                       | Crobat    (Lv. 46)          |   $8640  |
----------------------- ----------------------------- ----------
| Cyrus' Pokemon are weak to Electric-type attacks. Pikachu's    |
| Thunder (provided that your Pikachu has high Sp. Atk. stat)    |
| is capable of knocking each of them out in a single hit.       |
----------------------------------------------------------------

Heal up your Pokemon and save your game again. Go forward and battle Dialga (Pokemon Diamond) or Palkia (Pokemon Pearl).

 ---------------------------------------------------------------- 
| Legendary Pokemon Dialga                                       |
----------------------------------------------------------------
| Dialga's Roar of Time deals serious damage on your Pokemon,    |
| and it is also halves the damage it receives from most attack  |
| types. It is weak against Ground and Fighting-type moves       |
| though. Earthquake does considerable damage to Dialga, but do  |
| not overdo it since you're supposed to capture this Pokemon,   |
| not defeat it. Once you get its HP down to red, start throwing |
| Ultra Balls or Dusk Balls (at night). It may take several      |
| attempts to successfully capture it.                           |
----------------------------------------------------------------

Again, you only get to fight and capture Palkia in Pokemon Pearl.

----------------------------------------------------------------
| Legendary Pokemon Palkia                                       |
----------------------------------------------------------------
| The movesets of both legendary Pokemon are the same save for   |
| the fact that Palkia has Special Rend instead of Roar of Time. |
| I suggest using a fighting-type Pokemon in this battle. If you |
| have a Machoke with the Revenge attack, then use it on Palkia  |
| until you get it down to red health. Once this happens, start  |
| throwing Ultra Balls until you capture Palkia.                 |
----------------------------------------------------------------

 
Before exiting Mt. Coronet, go back to Dialga's or Palkia's spot at the Spear Pillar and pick up the ADAMANT ORB (Diamond) or the LUSTROUS ORB (Pearl).

the best way to capture dialga or palkia is to throw a dusk ball make sure it is night time to fight dialga or palkia because ultra ball has a 2x higher catch rate and the dusk ball has 4x catch rate if it is night time so thats it then.

Go out the cave you are in and go right. There are two rock climbing paths. Go to the one on the left and it's over there!

Please, I need help! My head is hurting, and I love this game, lol help me!
