How To Get Palkia And Dialga’s Origin Forms In Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Along with Hisiuan forms in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, you will also encounter the Origin forms of Palkia and Dialga. These two legendary Pokemon make their appearance at the end of the main story. However, you will only get to see one Origin form. This is based on which clan leader you choose to help. If Irida is chosen, Dialga will be in Origin form. Alternatively, if Adaman is chosen, you will see the Origin form of Palkia.

Obtaining The Adamant Crystal

The Adamant Crystal is used to transform Dialga into its Origin form. To obtain this crystal, you will need to complete request 89, called ‘The Diamond Clan’s Treasure’. This will appear after catching both Dialga and Palkia.

This request can be accepted from Adaman, who is found at the edge of Lake Valor near the Diamond Settlement within the Crimson Mirelands.

Adaman will be looking over the lake and when spoken to. He also wants to battle.

Battling Adaman

Adaman will send out the following three Pokemon.

  • Leafeon (level 64)
  • Umbreon (level 32)
  • Vaporeon (level 32)

This battle will not be too hard, considering you will be around the same level once you have completed the main story. Once Adaman has been defeated, he will reward you with three Comet Shards, as well as the Adamant Crystal.

Obtaining The Lustrous Globe

The Lustrous Globe is used to transform Palkia into its Origin form. This item is obtained by completing request 90, called ‘The Pearl Clan’s Treasure’. This is pretty much the same request as the one above, but you will battle Irida instead.

After beating the main story, you can find Irida in the Pearl Settlement within the Alabaster Icelands. Like Adaman, Irida will want to battle you.

Battling Irida

Irida will send out the following Pokemon once the battle starts.

  • Glaceon (level 64)
  • Espeon (level 32)
  • Flareon (level 32)

This battle will not be too difficult either. Once the battle is done, you will be rewarded with the Lustrous Globe and three Comet Shards.
