Looking for a way to be whole again.

I have been thinking about these two theories for a while now. They are both spoiler-filled so if you don't want spoilers, wait until you have played Legends Arceus to get to the point where you are finished with them.
At the start of the game, the player character has been sent into the past by Arceus, back to the time in which Sinnoh was still called Hisui. Depending on the starting choices, the player character can be seen wearing a shirt related to one of the other regions. In this theory, it's very possible that the character is actually the protagonist from the Sinnoh games, who went to another region after the events of DP or BDSP, but not Platinum, the Platinum version will be explained later in the theory. This also makes sense on why he/she knows how to use the Arc Phone, because it's literally his/her phone upgraded by Arceus itself. In a sense, the non-Platinum Sinnoh games can be considered part of canon now. But now to finally explain Platinum, so during the events of Legends Arceus, Giratina sided with a villainous character, but later learned to become good thanks to the player character stopping said villain. As the protagonist and the unpicked character had descendants for many years, Hisui developed into the Platinum version of Sinnoh, with the descendant being the Platinum protagonist. This explains why Giratina intervenes with Cyrus's plan in Platinum but not in the other Sinnoh games.
After 15 years since Platinum, Dialga and Palkia received their own Origin forms. The strange part about the forms is that they look eerily similar to Arceus, very unlike Giratina's own Origin form. So with that in mind, it's very possible that when the first Dialga and Palkia were created, Arceus created them in its own image, in other words, Dialga and Palkia originally looked like Arceus, this creation resulted in the accidental creation of Giratina. In the science about matter, it's stated that antimatter is created alongside matter, the two are different and yet, are created at the same time. In a sense, Giratina is the antimatter of the Creation trio, explaining why Giratina was never created looking like Arceus, but rather, looking serpentine with no legs instead.
