The Spear Pillar - Catching Dialga, Palkia

To start this quest, head to Celestic Town and talk to Cynthia's granny.
Once you've done that, go to Oreburgh City and access Mt. Coronet from

Mt. Coronet
Items: Adamant Orb, Lustrous Orb, Stone Plate, TM02 Dragon Claw, Nugget.

Surf on the water going north and Rock Climb to the upper level. Head for
the stairs leading up to the next floor. Make your way around back to the
outside. head east and Rock Climb when you can. Go into the cave to the
right. Now, surf west then ascend the waterfall. Get out of the water via
the top end and enter he next cave.

The rock here has a STONE PLATE, then grab the things that you came here
for -- the ADAMANT and LUSTROUS ORBS. Leave this cave and trace your steps
to the Spear Pillar. There is a TM02 and NUGGET to be found along the way.

Once you reach the Spear Pillar, save your game and examine the blue portal
Dialga will appear and try to eat you.

| 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.                           |

Once Dialga is captured, leave the room and return to the previous floor,
then come back to the room where you fought Dialga. Save and talk to
the purple portal. Palkia will try to eat you too.

| Legendary Pokemon Palkia                                       |
| Palkia is very similar to Dialga, except that its a water      |
| Pokemon instead of steel. It also has an attack called Special |
| Rend that can deal a good amount of damage, so use your best   |
| Pokemon and slowly chip away Palkia's HP. You will have better |
| chance of catchin Palkia with Net Balls too.                   |
