Dialga FTW. Why? Simple. In PMD 2, Primal Dialga was the coolest Pokémon in the game. Also, Diamond was the first version of Pokémon I got for the Nintendo DS.

Moar love needed for Palkia!

I chose Palkia after debating between it and Giratina as I like the idea of manipulating space and its design is appealing to me *shrug*

I absolutely hate Dialga. With a burning, fiery passion. No, it's not because it always beats me, because it doesn't. It's because its design in horrible - a long headed, blue, metal, space donkey. And was dumbfounded at all the people who loved him over Palkia. "Oooh, I want Diamond because Dialga is in it? Why do I like Dialga? Because everyone else does!"

Eh...

Giratina Please.

Dialga by miles for me - it was a combination of liking its design whilst not really liking the other two as much. Plus, it was the mascot for Diamond and it's my fave game of the three as well :D

My vote has to go to dialga. None of the above isn't even a match for Kyogre, Rayquaza, or Groudon.

This is about the only time I won't choose the Ghost type. I looove Palkia. <3 I don't know, but I just love the typing and design, not to mention Surf gets a STAB boost lol. Palkia is probably one of the only pokemon I've actually trained to 100.

Dialga was too slow for me and had a weird cry. :P
Giratina in D/P didn't do all that much for me. Giratina-O was cool, but I still like Palkia more.

Apart from Regigigas, I don't care at all for any of the Sinnoh legendaries, unfortunately. Maybe if they'd given any of these three a semblance of personality or interesting character design, I could muster up an opinion on them but... nope. To their credit, however, they're at least more interesting than the friggin' Lake Guardians. Ugh.

For some reason I like Dialga more, probably because time really interests me, Diamond was my first DPPt game, yeah, biased. Giratina is cool but I also like Dialga's design a lot too.
^ This. Definitely Dialga, love the whole 'time' theme and the design looks a bit overdone but still interesting. Next is Giratina, she's cool. I don't like Palkia tbh.

So we've got a steel-wrapped herbivore dinosaur that controls time vs a insect dragon with ghostly hands which transforms into a golden tapeworm with a orb and controls antimatter vs a fish like tyrannosaurs which can literally tear apart space.

I'll go with the latter, if not for the insanely good dual STAB.

Palkia is my favorite of the three. It was my first 4th gen legendary when I start playing Pokemon again. I don't really care about it battling ability. xD

Giratina by far. The concept is way to cool and the artwork is way better than Dialga/Palkia.

I went with Giratina, cos I love Platinum way better than Diamond & Pearl not to mention Ghost/Dragon is one epic but interesting type combination.

I also love how awesome it looks.

Not really a fan of any of these, but I don't wanna be boring & choose "none", so I'll choose Dialga.

I will pick Giratina. But only its Origin forme. Don't know why but its Altered forme seems weird to me and I love seeing Giratina around the Distortion World.

Being Giratina my first one, the second would be Palkia. I have to say I have only played Pokémon Diamond and Platinum, but Palkia has something that I like. And I think I got tired of seeing Dialga everytime I played Diamond so that could be another reason why I like Palkia more than Dialga. And isn't it cool the combination of Water/Dragon type?

I use Giratina the most. Not that I hate the other two, but this guy is just a balance between the trio.

Not to mention that its Attack and Special Attack are fairly balanced.

Oh, I see that for the moment I'm the only one who voted Palkia...
I'm not really fond of this trio now, but in my first game of Pearl Version, I really liked Palkia. I was more interested in the master of space than in the master of time, and I liked its double-type. Its design is pretty... Strange, of course, but I prefer it than Dialga's or Giratina's.
I completely agree, pearl was my first pokemon game and I absolutely fell in love with palkia. I then got diamond and dialga just wasn't as exciting to go after as it was for palkia.
So I would have to say Palkia, Giratina, then Dialga.

Dialga because of its type and because of Roar of Time. Primal Dialga also looked extremely cool.

Of the three, I would say that Giratina is my favorite. It has my favorite typing of the three (although I do like Dialga's Steel/Dragon, too). I also love that it has the two formes, one more offensive and the other defensive.

Also, the Distortion World made me like Giratina that much more!
