What exactly is Giratina? "Giratina is a dual-type Ghost/Dragon Legendary Pokemon," according to Bulbapedia. While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokemon, it does have a second form that may be awakened by giving Giratina a Griseous Orb to hold or by being in its home, the Distortion World. In this form, called Spirit Link, Giratina becomes a spirit that can teleport itself and others through time and space.
It should be noted that while Giratina is always listed as a legendary Pokemon, this doesn't mean that it will appear in every game forever. The developer can remove it from their lineup at any time if they so choose. However, since it was introduced into Generation I, it has never been removed.
And now for something completely different...
If you had to guess what generation of Pokemon Game Boy Advance came out in, how would you respond? If you said 2001, you'd be correct! Giratina first appeared in Pokémon Gold & Silver, which were released in Japan in December 2001 and in America in April 2002. This makes it one of the first Pokemon to come out after the success of the Game Boy Color series and before the release of the Game Boy Advance SP.
Here's how many types of Pokemon are there in the world? That's right: 8. There are both ground and flying types, both normal and special, and both water and fire.
Giratina's shape may be changed manually in the mainstream series by equipping it with an item called the Griseous Orb. Altered and Origin Forme Giratina, on the other hand, are considered as unique Pokemon in Pokemon Go, so you'll have to capture them individually.
There is no way to change Giratina's form in the mobile game itself, but fans have come up with some clever techniques to do so via hacks.
It will revert to its original shape if it is given a griseous orb. Its Dragon Breath strike may engulf warriors in a huge, destructive whirlwind. If you're on the receiving end, be sure it doesn't sweep you off the stage. PAL: Giratina, often known as the Renegade Pokemon, resides in the Distortion World realm. It has two forms and will only be seen in our world in its original form if it is clutching a Griseous Orb. In its distorted form, it uses Dragonbreath to blow itself up like a bomb destroying everything in its path.
Giratina is the Pokémon Platinum Version Mascot. Along with Dialga and Palkia, it is a member of the Creation Trio. Like its siblings, it has three heads.
The three Generation II trios of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina were created by Yoko Taro as a tribute to the classic trio from the first generation. Giratina's true name is "Giratina-O". It can transform into a cloud with 100 million lightning bolts on each tip. This form is called "Giratina Mode" and it can destroy planets with its thunderbolt attacks.
In Japan, Giratina-O is considered one of the eight Divine Beasts. It is said that if you seek out and save all the beasts, you will be able to revive the dead.
In early February 2008, Giratina's Origin Forme was formally unveiled. Giratina is the Pokemon Platinum game mascot, featured on the boxart in its Origin Forme. It is a member of Sinnoh's creation triad, together with Dialga and Palkia, signifying antimatter. Its official English name is "Giratina SoulSilver."
Giratina came out in Japan on February 9, 2008 for Nintendo's DS hand-held video game system. It came packaged with a free copy of Pokemon Silver.

When Arceus emerged from its egg, Giratina, Dialga, and Palkia were born. Giratina was regarded to be one of the most violent Pokemon (together with Mewtwo). As a result, Arceus exiled Giratina to the Distortion World, where it was allegedly imprisoned indefinitely in order to balance the Distortion World. However, this story is likely just an excuse for why Arceus has no siblings.
Giratina may only only be obtained in a raid fight in Pokemon GO. A raid fight occurs when a high-leveled Pokemon takes over a nearby Pokemon gym for a brief period of time. In these cases, both common and legendary monsters may emerge.
If you find yourself in a raid battle, stay near the edge of the map or else you might get swept away by your opponent.
If you lose your first raid battle, you will receive a free ticket to try again later. You cannot receive tickets if you win your first raid battle or else you will need to wait out the timer before you can try again.
After several successful raids, you will be awarded with one special item called a "Giratina Orb". This item is used to create a Giratina clone which can then be battled in place of the original.
You can only have up to three clones at a time so be sure to use them wisely! If you delete any clones before their time has expired, you will not be able to recreate them.
Deleting clones also removes them from the Raid Meter on the left side of the screen. So make sure not to delete anything too early or else you might end up having to battle a powerful monster solo instead!
Once you've got the Griseous Orb, you can then open your party and select Giratina. Choose the "Held Item" option and then select the Griseous Orb from your inventory. You'll now see a little animation take place on your party screen as the legendary turns into Giratina's Origin Form. This form is completely static and will not attack any enemies on its own.
To turn it back into Giratina, just select it again and this time choose the "Helped" option. Now Giratina will help you find all kinds of items in the game, even if you don't have enough PP for a Special Attack. It will also give you 100% success rates in Raid Battles and will never fail to appear when you need it in a battle.
If you want to turn it into its alternate form, Gigantamax, you can do so by selecting it again and choosing the "Gigantamax" option. Now not only will Giratina learn several new attacks but it will also grow in size. Once it reaches maximum size, it will remain in that form until you go back into your party and change it back into its original form.
However, if you want to use it in raids or battles without changing forms first, you can still do so by selecting one of its attacks (such as "Recover" or "Defense Curl") instead of its options.
