Dialga Next Raid Boss
Palkia was announced as the legendary raid boss for all of February. The cover of Pokemon Pearl will be available until February 28, 1pm PST.
As a result, it isn’t particularly surprising that the Pokemon Diamond legendary Pokemon, Dialga, will replace it. It has been announced that Latias, a current raid boss, will be staying in raid battles until March 1. Therefore, Dialga could be added then.
Furthermore, there are strong indications that the brand new Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch will be announced on February 27. Consequently, it doesn’t make sense for Niantic to dilute news on that day.

Another Gen 4 Pokemon
Dialga will be the 80th Gen 4 Pokemon to be made available in Pokemon Go. Consequently, there will be 27 remaining.
The remaining 27 generation 4 Pokemon can be seen in the list above.

The authenticity of the leak cannot be confirmed. However, it’s important to note that the account has yet to be wrong.
The leak gives ample opportunity to prepare Pokemon in advance of its inclusion as a raid boss. Unlike Palkia where the best counters are dragon based Pokemon, Dialga is weak against primarily fighting types.
Machamp probably offers the best overall counter to Dialga with its suitable moveset and high attack stat. Elsewhere, Blaziken provides good stats but not quite as good moveset. Groudon is another possibility with its high stats across the board.
Dialga Boss CP, Catch CP and Weather Boost
The leak also provided further information about Dialga as a raid boss. The steel and dragon-type Pokemon will have a max CP of 48,472.
Catching it at level 20 will give it 2,307 CP, while at level 25, as a result of snow/windy weather boost, will give it 2,884 CP.
