Is it possible to get a second dialga in Pokémon diamond from a fossil? I left a fossil at the mining museum in 2014 (I’m not sure which one) and picked it up in 2017, and it was a dialga. It says I got it from the mining museum in the summary of it. Is this a glitch, or a normal part of the game?

What happens when you try to encounter a Dialga on Spear Pillar?
I had already gotten dialga from spear pillar when I got the fossil one, so now I just have 2 dialgas and there isn’t one at spear pillar.

Wow ok that’s a glitch. The only Pokemon you can get from fossils in DPP are Omanyte, Kabuto, Aerodactyl, Lileep, Anorith, Cranidos, and Shieldon (source). If that isn’t enough proof, I looked up where you can find Dialga in Diamond, and the only location was Spear Pillar. Plus, Bulbapedia said there is only 1 in the game.

So, you glitched. That’s kind of crazy. May I ask, have you used cheating devices or glitches in the past? I don’t know much about cheats and glitches, but I’ve heard that some weird stuff happens when you glitch or cheat.

Hope this helps! :)

I haven’t used any cheating devices or glitches, so I’m not really sure how it happened. Maybe it was at the museum so long it glitched or something?
Maybe, I’m not too familiar with things like glitches.

That's a glitch, I've never heard of this one before but it is possible that you might have just randomly (but most unlikely) walked exactly enough steps to trigger a glitch, but I think that probably only for the tweaking glitches. There are usually excessive data in the game such as getting Darkrai using tweaking glitches, actually keeping the typing of generation 2-generation 7 in the Let's Go games.

It might be excessive data that at first game freak wanted you to get a Dialga or Palkia fossil but then they decided to let you catch the legendary Pokemon at spear pillar instead, but what went wrong was they forgot to delete that data. Usually doing glitches to your game will make the game freeze, but I guess the excessive data turned the fossil you have into a glitched Dialga, but if you can use it and it feels like a normal Dialga, then it was excessive data. Or else, it would be just problems with the code that would glitch your game further or just turn it into a bad EGG.

I've hoped I've helped!
