Tie between Dialga and Palkia, but I went with Dialga, mainly because Diamond was the first Gen IV game I played.

Palkia all the way, though i wish it had more votes :/
Nevertheless my vote goes for it because Pearl was my first 4th gen game and it was my first legendary in 4th gen (duh) ahahah but i just like the typing 'n the desing *.* It looks so pretty 'n shiny. Pearls are shiny.

I like them all for different reasons, but Giratina is my favourite of the three and my second-favourite Gen IV legendary. "Renegade" Pokemon + dat typing + very creepy design. And the Pokedex entry that cites it appearing in an ancient cemetery, although that's not exactly true to the games.
Current mono-type: TFL, Round 4
Game: Black 2 (6/8)

Regions cleared: Johto | Hoenn | Sinnoh | Unova | (More? Let's finish these first~)

I love Giratina the most mainly because of design and Giratina getting his own realm.
I don't know but I don't like Palkia the most out of the three xD

Really not a fan of any of these because they all look so ugly imo. If I had to choose, I would pick Palkia because of its great typing and massive Special attack that is through the roof.

Giratina. I quite liked it since it was first revealed. On my first account here back in 2006, I tried to claim Giratina. I like that he looks menacing and fierce, like a demonic dragon. That's a far more interesting design than a dragon with some steel slapped on or water-type dragon, even with their time/space powers, pfft.
Even if it's a short life, burn hot and bright and overtake the moment. That's my way of life.

I really like the three of them. But I like Giratina even more.
Giratina is like the shield and the best escapist. I like how
his world was created, like the other side of earth.

Giratina, koffi~

I think the Ghost/Dragon typing really stands out here. I like the typing better than the other two. Palkia may have great resistances, but Giratina's design helps edge it out of all three, koff~

ps please no more Dragon Legendaries, we've had enough for now.

I will always be partial to Palkia because that was the first legendary Pokemon I ever caught. Excluding that, I can't really decide between the three though. I liked how Dialga could control time, and Giratina looked so strange to me, that I couldn't help but love it.
"The human sacrificed himself, to save the Pokemon. I pitted them against each other, but not until they set aside their differences did I see the true power they all share deep inside. I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are." -Mewtwo

Dialga, for surezies. I had to face Dialga in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon and I loved the whole gap in time/Temporal Tower falling apart thing. Diamond was also my very first main series game. Lastly, theories and explanations of time itself fascinate me.

Giratina's cool, but it wasn't all that well designed to me. I prefer its... 6-Legged Form or whatever it's called. That thing can really take a hit!

I've always been biased against Palkia for no particular reason, even though I love the color pink. I think the shields on its arms look really cool but other than that I don't like it. Especially its feet... looks like it was standing in a pool for 6 hours or something lol.

Is it me or are these three legendaries pretty ugly?! I would say Dialga is the cooler one but I just look at them and grimace sometimes?!

I would say Dialga... but Giratinas typing, backstory and design win my favour on this one. He's a very unique legendary to be sure... in regards to Palkia... I never really liked him to be honest.

Vote comes to Giratina. For me all these legendaries doesnt looks good, but i like Giratina. looks the better ( looks frighteningly, so for me its a plus :D ), you can give good TM's. Giratina is the strongest too in stats (if i good remember).

I don't care how powerful or their types are.
But I do like Dialga's design and attacks overall.

Palkia - liked the design ( big & cute ) :D

Didn't like Dialga ( like work horse in 1930 )

Giratina has good stats ( but Design looks bad for me - like a worm with wings ) ;D
