Origin Forme Dialga weaknesses in Pokemon Go

Origin Forme Dialga, like its regular form, is a Steel/Dragon-type Pokemon, meaning it’s weak only against Fighting and Ground-type moves in Pokemon Go.

It’s worth noting that Dialga can resist Normal, Flying, Rock, Bug, Steel, Water, Grass, Electric, and Psychic-type attacks. While it’s also immune to Poison-type moves in mainline games, in Pokemon Go this translates as a stronger resistance to that type.
