Take on Dialga and Palkia in a Teracrist Raid

To our great regret, Dialga and Palkia are absent from the list of former Pokémon back in Violet and Scarlet thanks to Jeffry Andise. While it may appear that the fourth-generation Legendary Pokémon have been left out of the DLC, this is actually not entirely true.
