Pokédex Data:

A Pokémon spoken of in legend. It is said that time began moving when Dialga was born. It has the power to control time. It appears in Sinnoh-region myths as an ancient deity.


Hello everyone, as a way to say sorry it took me so long we’ll be reviewing the big guys of this generation this week; today its Dialga’s turn, so let’s get this started.


Dialga has the classic legendary Pokémon stats we all know. All of them are great but Dialga is special for something else; its type combination gives it a huge advantage over commonly used attacks and a huge immunity to toxic that is just great. Some like to use it as a purely defensive Pokémon, but I like being a little bit more offensive with this one.


The movesets for today are…


Special sweeper.
Dialga@Adamant orb.
Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).
EV’s: 252 Special attack / 128 Defense / 128 Speed.
- Ice beam
- Flash cannon/ Aura sphere
- Dragon pulse / Earth power/ Draco meteor
- Thunderbolt / Ancient power / Flamethrower/ Overheat


The first three attacks are your main offensive; ice beam is very valuable against ground and dragon types so I’d suggest you not to switch it. The last move depends on your strategy. You can add Choice specs to the equation and we have a pretty good hit-runner.

Physical sweeper.
Dialga@Adamant orb.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 HP / 6 Speed.
- Dragon claw
- Earthquake
- Shadow claw
- Stone edge


This physical sweeper is decent, but it is better if you use choice band. But there is an even better and more used set for Dialga…


Bulk up.
Dialga@Adamant orb.
Nature: Careful (+ Special defense, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Special defense / 252 HP / 6 Attack.
- Bulk up
- Dragon claw
- Earthquake / Shadow claw
- Rest


This is probably the safest way to go if you are choosing the physical sweeper. If has enough defenses to give you a good amount of boost via bulk up, then just sweep.



It resists Ghost, water, electric, grass, bug, dark, normal and flying. It cannot be poisoned via toxic (but you can, it is a useful move for Dialga as well) and its special item give it a very huge advantage over many Pokémon. I like this one a lot…



Your best shot is attacking Dialga with another offensive legendary Pokémon; Deoxys and Lati@s are pretty good, and a strong Earthquake from a boosted Tyranitar or a fast Metagross could give you a chance. You could as well go with a defensive Pokémon as Blissey, Miltank or Forretress, but you’ll have to plan a good strategy to take it out.


Bottom line.

Later this week we’ll have Palkia, so stay tuned folks…





Hope you enjoyed.
