  2. Clarification Request::
    DIALGA IS NOT WEAK TO ICE!!! as you said, he's part steel, steel is resistant to ice which counters dragon weakness. dialga's weak to fire, ground, and FIGHTING.
    what's your lvl, pokemon, and is it primal or regular?

    A. For starters, use a Vile Seed to drop his level way down. If you have it, the move Dig is extremely effective. Be sure to have plenty of Oran Berries and Reviver Seeds in case it decides to spam Roar of Time. Sleep Seeds are good for getting some uninterrupted hits in. If you find yourself underleveled, you will unfortunately have to go back to Treasure Town, train, and come back, which means going through the Hidden Land and Temporal Tower all over again. Sorry, but thems the breaks.</i>

  1. I had the same problem. I ended up just level grinding for awhile. It still didn't work and I wasn't getting enough good items to use.

    I ended up going back to treasure town, buying some useful stuff and going to other dungeons to get useful items (reviver seeds!!!).

    Then go back, use some sleep seeds (or any other status seeds) and attack like crazy. Linking your moves will help, too.

  2. The easiest way I have found for beating bosses is to use status seeds, such as sleep seeds, totter seeds, X-Eye seeds...that strategy usually works. Also, have some reviver seeds and maybe oran berries.

  3. Status effects. I had a Cyndaquil and a Picachu. I would always try to keep him under BOTH Smokescreen and thunder wave, maybe you cauld use status effects?

  6. primal dialga is a bit difficult, even for high level players, so my suggestion is to build your characters to about level 50 then go in with about 5 revive seeds, and the rest of your bag fill with oran berries, if you are going to restart the game, then save EVERY SINGLE REVIVAL SEED YOU GET until you get to the point when it introduces the hidden land, and stock all of them that you can in your bag, not only are you in for a hard end fight, the proceeding dungeons of the hidden land have some diffcult pokemon, such as dragonite.

  7. And one thing i forgot in my previous post... if you go in with very few revive seeds, build up in x-eye and blast seeds, as x-eye will cause him to stop attacking and blast will do a good bit extra damage. Kill him off, and enjoy the cutscenes!

  8. And do not move link! they only make it harder, as they quickly drop hunger, and are pretty much useless, especially for your partner pokemon. it isnt worth the money.

  10. If you can get a pokemon that learns or knows smokescreen it would be very effective to spam dialga with the move

  12. Well for starters, go back to treasure town and make sure to buy items like vile and doom seeds violent seeds will work for you too. Have a pokemon on your team the can use a paralyzing and/or sleeping move it will help a lot. A good thing is that his roar of time move after using causes him to freeze use it to your advantage. Finally In suggest that your team has it's lowest be around 35 if all fails level grind as long as you can take it. Hope this helps

  13. If you take nothing else from this, have some Reviver seeds with you! if you can, have your team around or over level 40 to make things easier, though I guess that it isn't necessary. His attacks consist of Metal Claw, Ancientpower, Dragon Claw, and Roar of Time. The only one I had to worry about was Roar of Time, as this one will hit both members of your team wherever they are in the room, and can easily kill them if they're weakened. If you have X-eye seeds, DON'T HOLD BACK, THEY ARE SO FREAKIN' USEFUL! other than that, I guess your strategy depends on how Dialga attacks you and what your duo's moves are, pray that you can have some powerful fighting or ground type moves, it can really shorten the fight

  14. I beat Primal Dialga at level 36, so it isn't THAT hard. All you need are tons of Reviver Seeds, Violent Seeds, and X-Eye Seeds. First gollop a Violent Seed and hope he doesn't OHKO you, the X-Eye seed him so that he can't attack you. Then proceed with your attacks. If you have Brick Break on you, or Mud Slap if you're a Mudkip, USE IT. I took Dialga down with twelve Brick Breaks, and six Reviver Seeds used.

  15. well, i'd say the hard part is to reach dialga itself

    I finished the old blue mystery dungeon at lv 27 (is that low? rayquaza was down with that)

    when i tried this lv at the hidden land, my pikachu got pwned by GARCHOMPS

    oh crap i hate ground types

    for dialga itself... i dunno, I used my torchic as a wall with about 10 reviver seeds in the bag and I spam some shockwaves, and when shockwave's out of PP, i went right up under dialga's nose (it has a nose?!) and brickbreak'd it to death

  16. eat a violent seed and learn a VERY strong move, throw an x eye (NOT sleep, he wakes up very easy) seed at him, get him confused and just keep on attacking him.
