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.
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.
