Pokémon Go Origin Forme Dialga counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Origin Forme Dialga, the somehow even chonkier Temporal Pokémon, has appeared in the world of Pokémon Go.

Along with its cousin, Origin Forme Palkia, this Pokémon has the ability to affect the overworld, referred to as an Adventure Effect. As of February 2024, Trainers in Pokémon Go can use Origin Forme Dialga to pause time, allowing for much more efficient use of Lucky Eggs, Star Pieces and Incenses. Origin Forme Palkia, meanwhile, can alter space to allow for a larger catch radius on the world map.

But in order to make the most of that benefit, you’ll need to add Origin Forme Dialga to your collection and stock up on Dialga Candy in the process. And to achieve that, you will need to know Origin Forme Dialga’s weaknesses and counters in Pokémon Go.

As with all Legendary Pokémon, Origin Forme Dialga will be available in five-star raids for a limited time, so, if you want to add it to your Pokédex, you’ll need to battle it alongside a group of trainers. Thanks to Remote Raiding, you can do so in the space of your choosing.

Everything we know about Origin Forme Dialga

Origin Forme Dialga dates back to when Sinnoh was still the Hisui region, as seen in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. You can read the difference between the two Formes below:

Dialga: ‘It has the power to control time. It appears in Sinnoh-region myths as an ancient deity.’

Origin Forme Dialga: ‘Radiant light caused Dialga to take on a form bearing a striking resemblance to the creator Pokémon. Dialga now wields such colossal strength that one must conclude this is its true form.’

It’s amusingly ironic that this ‘true form’ boasts an attack stat of 270 – down slightly from Dialga’s 275.

Finally, the shinies of both Origin Forme Dialga and Palkia are already available – you can see how they compare below.
