Pokemon Legends Arceus: How to Get Dialga & Palkia Origin Forms

Both Legendary Pokemon Dialga and Palkia are up for grabs in Pokemon Legends: Arceus – here’s how to get their Origin forms.

Players are finally beginning to get their hands on Pokemon Legends: Arceus, and the game is shaping up to be a tremendous success.

Game Freak’s first delve into a true open-world Pokemon adventure looks to be going down well with the franchise’s fanbase, at least.

Although huge Pokemon are freaking people out in Legends: Arceus, we’re just happy to see some variety in the game!

And when you come to the end of the main story, it’s time to seek out some Legendary Pokemon. You’ll be catching Dialga and Palkia through the game’s main questline, but what about their Origin forms?

After that, don’t miss our guide on catching Arceus itself!

Where to Find Adamant Crystal & Lustrous Orb in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Once you hit the post-game of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, it’s time to begin your hunt for the Mythical Pokemon that inhabit the region.

Now you finally have a chance to find every Unown around the Hisui region or hunt down some of the game’s strongest Pokemon.

And where better to start than with the Origin Forms of Dialga and Palkia? You’ll already have these two ‘mons in their base forms, thanks to the main storyline – but what about their Origin appearances.

The good news is that these controversial new forms aren’t gone for good, you’ll just need special items to transform them at will. Here’s where to find each one:

Where to Find Adamant Crystal for Dialga Origin Form

  • To find the Adamant Crystal, head to the Crimson Mirelands, just North West of Lake Valor.
  • Talk to Adaman on the edge of the water and battle him at his request.
  • Adaman will send out a Vaporeon (Level 32), Leafeon (Level 64), and Umbreon (Level 32), all at once, so be ready for a fight.
  • Beating Adaman will result in him giving yout the Adamant Crystal.
  • Then, simply use it on Dialga in your inventory to transform the Legendary Pokemon between its Origin and base forms! This can be done as many times as you like.

Where to Find Lustrous Orb for Palkia Origin Form

  • To find the Lustrous Orb, head to Alabaster Icelands and fly to Pearl Settlement.
  • At the top of the camp, talk to Irida and battle her just like you did Adaman.
  • After the fight, Irida will hand over the Lustrous Orb.
  • Once again, use the item Palkia in your inventory to transform the Legendary Pokemon between its Origin and base forms! This can be done as many times as you like.

Once you have your Legendary Pokemon the way you want them, it’s time to continue the hunt! Why not catch Cresselia in Pokemon Legends next?

And don’t forget that you can also catch Manaphy and Phione if you know where to look! However, doing so is far trickier than even Dialga and Palkia.

Or begin your hunt for an alternative color palette with shiny Pokemon. Thankfully, this new way to farm shiny Pokemon in Legends: Arceus makes the whole process easier than ever!
