Expert gamers think that Diamond and Pearl have a few minor differences from their early version in 2006. Dialga indicates the power with blue, and Palkia represents pink power. Though it's a little different, the major difference gamers will observe is that you cannot catch the Pokemon in one series, and your hunting will be continued for the next series as well.


Apart from the primary differences, battle style, weapons, the Sinnoh settings, and the storyline change, gamers can all experience major changes. At the same time, they start playing Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.


Dialga and Palkia both are powerful and absorb their power from the underground. Still, the results of the battles will depend on the weapons, technique, and strength of Pokemon players. Dialga is defensive steel while Palkia, offensive water, is different, but both are powerful on the battlefield. Players can use defensive or offensive, whichever they choose, and start play.


However, we can only assume what is what before release, but the real difference between the two legends will be revealed once the game pops up on your screen.
