Dialga + Palkia

Question asked by HisServant on

Dialga + Palkia

I have heard that you can only catch dialga + palkia once you stop galactic from getting hetran + and get the 2 orbs. Can you get them just on your way back to the spear pillar? Also I heard that you need to go in a portal. Will they both be there or only one of the portals. If both portals are there will the palkia one go away if you go into the Dialga one??????

If you save before you start you can try until you get bored. I f something goes wrong turn your DS off. Once you turn it on you will back where you started before battling.

You can't get them that way because after you get heatran and the orbs you have to go to the cave painting in celestic town and press A on it then you have to talk to cynthia untill she is done talking. If you go to the spear pillar after that only the Dialga portal will be there once you get done battling against it you have to go inside mt cornet then come back out to the spear pillar and the palkia portal will be there.

To catch Palkia and Dialga, you need to defeat Team Galactic's Veilstone Headquarters, defeat the Elite four, and have gotten the two orbs in Mount Coronet. When farther in the cave, they will be a place to surf, and they'll be a door over there. Go through the door and collect the two items. Then later travel on the Spear Pillar, and there will be a blue portal where Dialga is. Walk out of the Spear Pillar, and return back in, and there lies Palkia. Remember, you have one chance to catch them, so save before you catch. I caught Dialga with an Ultra Ball and Palkia with a Quick Ball.

Well really after you beat the elite four you have to see mesprit or whatever his name is in that one lake in twinleaf and he'll run away then professer oak will come talk to you then you can leave. If you have the adamant orb and lustrus orb go to spear pillar and catch dialga then go back in mt. Cornet and go back to spear pillar and you'll see a pink vortex instead of a blue one (the blue one is dialga) when you see the pink one thats palkia I had the same problem I got them like an hour ago. And I'm stuck now. I can't complete my national dex what you need to go to the resort area or survival area.... Good luck for now :D

Look it's as simple as, beat the elite four, get the two orbs from the waterfall room(on the way to the summit) go up dialga's portal will be open to the left, battle nd capture, go back into mt corronet, go back to the top and palkia will be open to the rite. I've seen alot of sites saying you need heatran or the Pokemon of the lake, but tbh, I did it with just beating the elite four and the two orbs.

It took 15 ultra balls to catch dialga and 1 to catch palkia I think you might be wrong on that

starfy1 answered:

Or You Could trade from Diamond or Pearl. =D

darkrai xstar answered:

First you explore mt. Coronet and find a cave with two orbs you need to find dialga and palkia then go capture or defeat giratina then go defeat all the gym leaders and then defeat elite four and then go to spear pillar and dialga will be there and after you catch or deafeat dialga palkia will be there and do the same thing you did with dialga

The MCT Overlord answered:

Defeat the distortion world, get the orbs, and head to speaar pillar. I believe that this is all you need. I can't remember but I think I did this before I beat the elite four. Can't remember

Hope this helps!

Yes you are able to obtain the two Orbs right after exiting the reverse world where GIRATINA is caught.

Both orbs are accessible before elite 4 but are use, ess until the post game wear you talk to cynthias grandmother in celestic town. The national dex is not needed as both pokemon are added to the normal dex during the distortion world incident really making it unnecessary

Guest answered:

Go to celestic town go to the librarey ps I'm 7. Talk to the old woman and then go back to spear piller ps again beat the eileat 4 first.

Guest answered:

You can get them after you beat the elite 4 and just go 2 the spear pillar and they will be there you don't need any orbs

Guest answered:

First you must beat the elite four,then talk to cynthia's grandmother in celestic town,stock up on poke balls (especially ultra balls and dusk balls)and max repels (if you don't want any other Pokemon interupting you).after that make your way to the spear piller, find the two orbs in the waterfall cave on your way to the spear piller. Once in the spear piller go all the way to a triangle shape thing marked on the floor and see if there is a light either on the right or the left. (if the light is pink that is palkia if the light is blue that is dialga). Go up to the pink/blue light and press A on it and you are now battling either palkia or dialga. Battle them (wach out they are both lvl 70) and try capturing them or KO'ing them(I suggest putting them to sleep and capturing them). If you successfuly captured dialga and palkia congratulations you are now the proud owner of dialga and or palkia treat them with care. If you KO'ed them don't worry just go back to the elite four and defiete them and cynthia and you can then battle dialga and or palkia again.
Hope this helpedSmile
