Palkia is a Legendary Water/Dragon-type Pokémon that first appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. It has the ability to manipulate space, in contrast with Dialga's ability to manipulate time.


Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Palkia's first appearance in the Mario franchise is in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, in the Spear Pillar stage alongside Dialga and Cresselia. When the stage has a purple tint, Palkia has a chance of appearing. Once it appears, it has a multitude of abilities, including destroying sections of the stage, shooting a powerful beam either vertically or horizontally, decreasing the stage's gravity (making players jump higher and fall slower), tilting the camera so that it's askew, flipping it horizontally, and rotating it upside-down. After performing a couple of these abilities, it will disappear.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, Palkia can be spawned from a Poké Ball or Master Ball and attacks by using its signature move, Spacial Rend, which involves it slashing across the screen and flipping the camera. This affects nothing other than the player's viewpoint. Coming into contact with it does minor damage. Eventually, the screen tilts back to normal and Palkia disappears.

Dialga warps time, but Palkia has control over space. It lives between parallel dimensions and is known for its power, rumored to be able to warp space. It can use Spacial Rend to rip through the very space an enemy resides in, damaging the foe at the same time. It is Pearl's mascot.

Stories surround this Legendary Water/ Dragon-type Pokémon, saying that it has control over all of space. Its Spacial Rend attack will tear space and flip the screen upside down. When this happens, the left and right controls of the fighters will become flipped as well. Stories of this Legendary Pokémon say that Palkia is a god that controls all of space. When it uses its Spacial Rend attack in Super Smash Bros., it causes the screen to flip upside down. If that wasn't confusing enough, it also flips the left and right controls!
