Pokémon Legends: Arceus introduces brand-new forms of Dialga and Palkia: Origin forms! This means all three members of the creation trio, including Giratina, now have Origin modes. That being said, Dialga and Palkia do not appear in their Origin forms after you catch them in-game. Instead, you have to seek out two specific items: the Adamant Crystal and the Lustrous Globe. We’ve got their locations right here!
Adamant Crystal & Lustrous Globe Locations
As is the case with Giratina, Dialga and Palkia don’t necessary become more powerful when they change into their Origin forms. Dialga loses twenty points in Attack that go to Sp. Defense instead, while Palkia loses twenty points in Attack that go to Speed instead. This means that these forms are mostly for visual flavor, in which they are trying to copy Arceus.
To obtain the Adamant Crystal, you’ll need to visit the Diamond Settlement in the Crimson Mirelands. You’ll find Adaman near Lake Valor, looking out over the water. Challenge him to a battle and win, and he’ll give you the Adamant Crystal as thanks. Keep in mind that this battle is actually a three-against-one, so be prepared!
You can obtain the Lustrous Globe from Irida in a similar way. She’s located in the middle of the Pearl Settlement in the Alabaster Icelands, and she’ll also challenge you to a three-on-one battle. Win, and you’ll receive the Lustrous Globe. With these two items in hand, you’ll now be able to transform Dialga and Palkia into their Origin forms at will!
