I like Giratina the most. It's just so cool! It has a different form and it lives in an alternate dimension! It's design is also pretty good as well. It's also mighty powerful. My second would have to be Palkia because Pokemon Pearl was my first 4th Gen game, and the first legendary I have ever caught! I sucked at catching them so that's why Palkia was my first legendary. I like it's design and it's also pretty epic in my opinion. Dialga would take third out of all three of the dragons. It's not that I hate it or anything, I actually like it. It's just not my favorite. I also don't really have much to say, as I would be basically repeating what I said about Palkia without the first legendary stuff.

What the hell is a pakia?

Palkia is definitely my favourite. I find the ability to be able to warp the fabric of space something insanely powerful. I also think the fact it's a flying T-Rex and that Spacial Rend is probably one of best moves in the game helps.

    The 4th generation was the best generation so far for me and Platinum is my favourite game of all time.

    I like Palkia better. In my opinion, it has a better design than the other two. Also, its signature move, Spacial Rend, has a huge chance of landing critical hits. If it uses this move on either Giratina or Dialga and it turns out to be a critical hit, then they could be taken out instantly.

    Giratina is my second favorite of the trio. It has two separate forms, it has a world of its own, and its background is quite interesting. There are many more reasons to like this Pokémon, but these are just a few. =)

    I've always liked Palkia more than Dialga, with its Spacial Rend and I like its design more. Hence why my Pearl version is my main game, along with Platinum, though Dialga is #2 for me.

        My favorite's Dialga. First off, he just looks plain cool. He's all spiky and if science has proven anything is that people think spiky stuff are cool. Secondly, is his concept. Honestly, if ANYBODY said they didn't want to control time at some point they'd be lying. Lastly, is since he is the master of time, it gives me a good excuse to listen to the Pink Floyd song called Time. Hooray for having to find excuses for no reason!

          I'm a Water-type user, my vote naturally goes to Palkia.
          Giratina is not bad too, especially in Origin Forme.
          I like it's wide movepool and it's base stats are great!
          Besides I have a thing for serpent creatures, not a favorite.
          Gyarados, Milotic, Dragonair, Giratina, Servine. :D

Plus the music in the area where you find Giratina in DP just creeps me out too much
            ^ everything that was said here minus the part about Giratina's music.
            I'm not too fond of dragon types but I do adore steel types. And a steel type that can dish out some damage like Dialga is okay in my books.

              Giratina, especially in Origin Forme, is my absolute favorite pokemon of all time. I mean, have you seen him?! Great stats, great moves, and, in my opinion, the best design of any pokemon. Giratina looks like a beast!

                  Hmm, tough choice. I would probably choose Dialga, just because of its design.

                    Giratina, definitely. Ghost/Dragon - how cool is that? Palkia is cool too. Not a fan of Dialga, though.

                    Honestly I don't like any of them, but based on the Water/Dragon typing and the slightly cooler design I'll have to choose Palkia. I've never been a fan of the huge angry powerful dragons and these three are no exception but I somewhat admire Palkia's design and concept so he narrowly makes it out as being a decent Pokémon. He's also relatively fun to use and has some cool moves to play with, so I quite like him!

                      Im beetwen Palkia and Dialga. While Dialga is resistent to a lot of types but Fight and Ground deals him x2 damage, Palkia is just resistent to three types and just dragon attacks deals him x2damage.
                      But Palkia has an insane Special Attack, so I think Palkia is the best one.

                        Both Dialga and Giratina I found interesting. Palkia... not so much.

                        Dialga's type combo negated the usual weakness of Dragons being Dragon and Ice type moves. It also comes packing with a really awesome signature move 'Roar of Time' tell me that doesn't sound severely awesome?

                        Giratina's type combo was very peculiar, it struck me as a Dark type. Giratina has my vote, it's such a badass Pokemon being banished for it's violence, has it's own world on the reverse side of ours and can change it's formes alternating it's Attack and Defense. I never normally use legends in my in-game team, but in Platinum it was too tempting to use Giratina. It's a real solid fighter.

                          i dont know too much about palkia actually.
                          dialga is awesome to play with, and i hated giritina originally. too creepy looking(which is a good thing for its role). but after watching the movie giritina and the sky warrior, my opinion of giritina has changed. and all dialga and palkia do is fight eachother, like grow up. you guys are like a billion years old.

                            I'm in total agreement, Palkia was always super lame to me. What good is controlling Space with your...pointy head(?)...when you can control time with a roar? Giratina was that surprise I found while I was wandering around in my Pokemon Diamond version. I hadn't heard about it yet by the time I found it. I thought I was so cool for finding this "secret Pokemon." So Giratina will always be special to me. And it has its own reality, that kinda tops warping space.

                              Palkia all the way. I like water types and was shocked to find out Palkia is one, I was expecting a Dragon or Normal/Dragon or something but NOT water. That basically made him rock.
                              Only basically.
                              His signature slash (Spacial Rend, if I may) is so stylish in the anime that just hypes you even more.
                              And Spacial Rend. Don't get me started. I love that move, absolutely awesome at 100 power. It is this move that takes inspiration from the absolutely amazing Aeroblast.
                              I played Pearl in my first gameplay of Sinnoh, but that just impresses even more on how Palkia is awesome.
                              And then in PMD - Explorers of Darkness. Just my god. Saw that face? Just so awesome.

                              I can't know how the hell he isn't in the history books as the best ever Pokémon.
                              ... alright, maybe a bit exaggerated, but still.
                              He's just beast. Saw those space-controlling hands? He made the matrix. Of course, Dialga can roar beast too, but here's to more style and action. Awesome awesome awesome.

                                Palkia because Pearl was the first 4th gen game I got and because I like its look best.

                                  I prefer Giratina. It has a decent defensive typing, good stats, good moveset.

                                    I haven't played Diamond or Platinum or Pearl so I don't know much about their Legendaries. Just based on appearances, I think Dialga is the best.

                                    I'm not a big fan of this trio honestly, but I love Ghost types and Giratina looks pretty awesome. Palkia looks like male genitalia and Dialga's teeth are placed awkwardly as if it were an old man that lost his top teeth. So yeah, Giratina it is for me! Plus it lives in a super cool place. Awww yeah.

                                    ≫ take your heart !
