Pokemon BDSP Palkia Location

Palkia is a Water-Dragon Legendary Pokemon with a catching chance of 0.4%.  It is very useful against other, Fire, Water, and Steel-type Pokemon and we will be helping you catch one for yourself while explaining what type of Pokemon it is.

How to Catch Palkia

Palkia is a legendary Dragon Pokemon that requires a lot of effort and grind to capture. As mentioned before, you can only capture Palkia if you own Pokemon Shining Pearl as players who have Brilliant Diamond will get Dialga instead.

Start by defeating Commander Jupiter at Lake Acuity and then go to Veilstone City. Once you reach there, go to the Team Galactic HQ and speak to the grunt outside to receive the Storage Key.

Use this key to enter the storage, on the left side of the HQ building and defeat Scientist Fredrick. After that, you need to grab the left Pokeball as that’s the Galactic Key you need to enter the HQ.

Enter the HQ and defeat both Cyrus and Commander Saturn. Once you’ve done that, go to Mt.Coronet by following Route 207 and keep fighting Team Galactic’s grunts until you reach the peak. Defeat both commanders and then get ready to face Commander Saturn once again.

Once you’ve dealt with everyone from Team Galactic, Professor Rowan will show up and after that, you can battle and capture either Dialga or Palkia which in this case, would be Palkia. Note that you will have to throw at least 40 Ultra Balls to capture Palkia.
