Legendary Giratina Transforms Into Origin Forme and Returns as Raid Boss [Pokemon Go]

Wait…Legendary Giratina is Evol…Transforming. The Ghost- and Dragon-type Pokémon is back

The Legendary Giratina is returning as Raid Boss in Pokémon Go. A perfect opportunity for players to battle the Ghost- Dragon-type Legendary Pokémon in Raid Battles. Successfully defeating Giratina, you will be given the chance to capture and add the Legendary Raid Boss to your collection.

Upon on Giratina return, the Legendary will be in its Altered Forme. However, players will bear witness to the Renegade Pokemon transforming into Origin Forme Giratina.

Legendary Giratina

The Ghost and Dragon-type Pokémon is a member of the creation trio of Sinnoh along with other legendary pokémon Dialga and Palkia.

Whilst it is not known whether Giratina is able to evolve into or from other Pokémon, it has the ability to transform into different formes. Giratina appears to transform from its original Altered Forme into Origin Forme by giving a Griseous Orb to hold or whilst the Legendary Pokémon is at the Distortion World, Giratina homeworld.

In Pokémon Go, Giratina will appear in its transformed Origin Forme without the need of the Griseous Orb and will see the new Forme during Raid Battle shortly after the Pokémon returns.

Date + Time

Giratina (Altered Forme): Thursday, Mar. 28, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7) to Tuesday, Apr. 2, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)
Giratina (Origin Forme): Tuesday, Apr. 2, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7) to Monday, Apr. 29, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)

You will have the opportunity to capture both Formes of Giratina, so start assembling a team of Pokémonn, ready for battle.

Altered Forme Giratina/Origin Forme Giratina Counter

Both formes have virtually the same strength and weaknesses, therefore, the counter guide applies to both Formes of Giratina. The Dragon- Ghost-type Pokémon is vulnerable to Dark, Dragon, Fairy, Ghost and Ice-type Pokémon.

Assembling either Rayquaza, Palkia, Salamence, Dragonite, Dialgo are supreme counters even though they are Dragon-type Pokémon. Dragon is one of the most powerful types in Pokémon even though it counters its own Dragon-type.

If you do not have any of those Pokémon good replacements are Mamoswine, Mewtwo, Latios, Weavile and Genger.
