Palkia, known as the Spatial Pokémon, is a legendary Pokémon and part of the Creation trio, along with Dialga and Giratina. It represents spatial matter whereas Dialga represents time and Giratina represents antimatter. Palkia, like Dialga, has an appearance of a dinosaur. Palkia has wings on its back which can open up and purple stripes on its neck and tail. Palkia also has a pink pearl on its right shoulder. In Sinnoh-region lore, it was said to be created by Arceus, at which space began to take form and matter began to take shape. According to Platinum, Palkia's breath keeps space and matter stabilized.
Main Pokémon games
Palkia is only obtainable in Pearl, in the same way that Dialga is only obtainable in Diamond. It is summoned by the defeated leader of Team Galactic, Cyrus, who hopes to have it create a new universe for him, at the Spear Pillar on top of Mt. Coronet. It is stopped by Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf, which nullify its power, and the player now challenges it. Its special item is the Lustrous Orb which amplifies Palkia's Water- and Dragon-type attacks when held by it. In Platinum, it can be faced after getting the Lustrous Orb.
