I'll be honest, I don't like any of them :p But if I had to choose, I'd go with Dialga just because of it's Steel typing. I think Palkia is somewhat cool but it's design looks rude ;; Giratina I just plain don't like because it's scary and unoriginal - plus it looks more like a Yugioh monster than anything xD And Dialga's somewhat cool with a pretty sleek design and an interesting typing, so he wins my vote n.n

Even though I haven't used any of the three in my main team I'm going with Dialga here. I think its design outruled the other two easily. A unique typing - Dragon/Steel, seriously that's a great type to introduce!

Being the ruler of time in Pokemon which sounds like a hard job. Yet Dialga manages it so well xD. Although all legendaries are powerful, this one is beastly with it's signature move- Roar of Time.

So for this one, I'm going with Dialga all the way xD.

I'd explain it in the same way, but I'd say Palkia is a purple-pink kind of guy.

      I liked Dialga the most because of its design. Although Giratina comes in second with its Origin Form.

        Dialga was my muse until Platinum came out. Giratina took the spotlight.

          I've always hated Giratina. Palkia's awesome though. Cool-looking dinosaur dragon thing with a pink body. STAB Surf doesn't hurt either.

            I've despised Palkia's design since day one, so it's a toss-up between Dialga and Giratina (Origin Forme). Think I gotta go with Dialga. Steel/Dragon is a pretty nice typing.

              Dialga is a bad ass looking pokemon, Palkia is okay looking, And Giratina in origin Forme looks bad ass, But I like Dialga better.

                I choose Giritina. The Ghost/dragon typing is pretty awesome and I like how he is he keeps the dimensions in balance. Definately my fav of Arceus's dragon trio(well i liked dialga first but Giritina caught my eye when I found out he existed)

                  I really don't know, for I like all three of them.
                  But If I had to pick, I'd say Palkia.

                    I played Platinum first, but Giratina is still such a boss in my opinion.

                      "Giratina is called the Renegade Pokemon in the Pokedex. Renegade is synonymous with "rebellious". Giratina was banished to a different dimension for being violent.
                      Satan is often known as the Rebellious One. He was banished by God to Hell for leading a rebellion against God and the angels.

                      Giratina in Origin Form resembles a serpent and in Altered form a basilisk. Satan takes the form of a serpent and a basilisk many times in the Bible.

                      When in Origin Form, Giratina has 6 wings, 6 rib bones, and 6 spikes.
                      When in Altered Form, Giratina has 6 rib bones, 6 spikes, and 6 legs.
                      The number of the Devil is 666."

                        I'd definitely go with Giratina. What can I say? I love director's cuts like Emerald and Platinum :D

                          I am going to of to go with Dialga. I never played Pt. so I can't give a very good answer. But Girtina is extremly close 2nd. I don't really care much for Palkia.

                            I always thought Palkia was kind of cool, and Spacial Rend is nice because you don't have to recharge after using it, even if it didn't do the same massive damage as Roar of Time, but I'm going to go with Giratina. Outside of it's Distortion World form, it just looks OK, but when it's in that form, I think it's one of the coolest looking legends in Pokemon.

                              At risk of sounding clichè, I'd say Giratina. Although it's orgin form looks horrible, the alternate one is awesome and just looks epic. I loved it instantly. Also, Giratina's special move may not be as strong as Dialga/Palkia's (subject to opinion) but I still love its move pool.

                                Defenatly Giratina, it's a pain to find in Diamond/Perl though.
                                Really? I found it pretty easy. Catching it was the hard part, especially when you're using ultra balls.

                                And personally, I liked Palkia the best out of them. Giratina looked prett-y weird looking to me.

                                  Palkia. Pearl was my 4th gen game, and I always thought that it looked fierce and pretty cool as a shiny.

                                  I liked Giratina a lot as my 2nd favorite, but Dialga isn't the best in my opinion.

                                    Dialga and Palkia look like statues that can't move, designed to go on parade floats more than anything. Same with Reshiram and Zekrom.

                                      I like Palkia and Diagla although I barely battle with them.

                                        I first got them (all) in Pokemon Raptor EX, so I'm not biased I think.

                                        If I had to choose one, I would go with Dialga. Because it has the best design and best type combination out of the three imo. Dialga is steel/dragon. I don't know if it's unique in that but it gives really good type effectiveness. Only weak to two types, takes normal damage from three types and immune to poison.

                                        Palkia is water/dragon. If I wanted that type combination I could use Kingdra too although I don't like Kingdra's design that much either. It is a good type combo though. Also, I'm not a fan of Palkia's design.

                                        Although Giratina has more immunities than the other two it has more weaknesses than Dialga and not really rare types in that. I don't like Giratina's design either. In it's origin forme it looks like an overgrown caterpillar and altered forme looks like a big fat creature, like an elephant.

                                          I'm gonna have to go with Dialga on this one.. I got the short end of the stick when it came down to Legendaries with my fiancee. We buy the partner games (ie: Pearl/Diamond (she lost Platinum), and intend to get B&W, and B2&W2. We pick which one we want, and that's that. Did the same with HG/SS. Being a gentleman, I let her pick first.. she takes the cool one. I see Palkia, and I'm like, "Okay.. he looks damn tough.." I get him (without using Master Ball; was a PAIN), playing with him, get him to 70+.. then I see my fiancee's Dialga..

                                          .......... I was pissed. I don't know anything about Giratina, but even though I have Palkia in my game.. I would prefer Dialga.. so, my vote goes to Diamond.

                                            Definitely Dialga. It has a massive amount of resistances, and it looks awesome. That and the fact it resists other dragon types. I prefer spatial rend to roar of time, however, and I really don't like shadow force. If your opponent has a single normal type on their team, they can just switch out and you have wasted two turns. As such, Giratina 3rd; Palkia 2nd and Dialga definitely the best
