Now Playing: Pokemon Sword And Pokemon Shield - Official Reveal Trailer

A new Legendary Pokemon is now available in Pokemon Go. Following Palkia's departure, the Pokemon Diamond mascot Dialga has begun appearing in Raid Battles around the world--but as usual, it'll only be around for a limited time.

As with most other Legendaries, to catch Dialga you'll first need to team up with other players at a Gym where a Dialga Raid is taking place and battle the Pokemon. If you manage to defeat Dialga, each player who participated in the Raid will receive a handful of Premier Balls and an opportunity to catch it.

Dialga is the only Steel/Dragon Pokemon in the series, which gives it numerous resistances to other types. Your best bet for battling it is to bring along Fighting and Ground Pokemon such as Machamp, Hariyama, and Groudon. Dialga will only appear in Raid Battles until March 28, giving you until the end of the month to catch one.

In other Pokemon Go news, Niantic recently introduced the Team Medallion to the app's in-game store. This item allows players to change their team allegiance once every 365 days. The developer has also rolled out a new AR photo mode, which is the only way to encounter the elusive Pokemon Smeargle.

Pokemon Go's next Community Day event is scheduled for March 23. This time, the featured Pokemon will be Treecko, one of the three starters from Ruby and Sapphire. Players will also be able to hatch Pokemon Eggs at a quarter of the distance they typically require during the event.

Palkia is likely to still be around tomorrow during the day. We did a raid after 7pm as it spawned after 5pm which is usually the cutoff time for when a raid boss disappears on its last day.
