Giratina (Japaneseギラティナ Giratina) is a dual-type Ghost/Dragon Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

While it is not known to evolve to or from any other Pokémon, Giratina has a second forme activated by giving Giratina a Griseous Orb to hold, or while it is in its home, the Distortion Region. Its original forme, Altered Forme, will then become Origin Forme.

Giratina's Origin Forme was officially revealed in early February 2008.

Giratina is the game mascot of Pokémon Platinum, appearing on the boxart in its Origin Forme.

Along with Dialga and Palkia, it is a member of the taming trio of Sinnoh, representing antimatter.

Biology

Giratina is a large, gray, draconic Pokémon with three gold half-rings on each side of its long neck. Its head has a gold crown-like object surrounding it with two large horns pointing sideways. A thick black stripe runs vertically along its front with five red horizontal stripes. In its Altered Forme, it has two large black ghostly wings with three red tips on each that can resemble claws. These wings can change shape as if made of a liquid or gas. Its six legs are thick and have golden claws. Two golden half-circles similar to those on its neck are on each side of each leg, resembling shackles. It has a tail. Giratina remains in Altered Forme when outside of its home region.

In its Origin Forme, it takes on a serpentine look. Its legs are reduced to golden-tipped spikes, and four additional golden spikes appear near the edge of its tail. While in Origin Forme, the six gold half-rings can grip objects. The back points of each half-ring have a black ghostly tendril with red a spike at its tip. The horns on its head are now facing the back. The sides of the golden "crown" cover its mouth and separate vertically like an insect's mandible when it opens its mouth. The black vertical stripe is broken into pieces and runs all the way down its body. Giratina can only be in its Origin Forme when in its home, the Distortion region, or when holding a Griseous Orb.

Giratina is able to travel through and control regions. When in its Origin Forme, it is able to pass through regions at will, however, it will turn back to its Altered Forme due to the gravity change from the Distortion region. Giratina is a highly aggressive and territorial Pokémon that is protective of its home. Legends claim that Giratina appears in cemeteries. Giratina has also been reported to appear in ancient cemeteries. Giratina was said to be banished for its supposedly violent behavior, though in the anime it is shown to possess a gentle side as well. Giratina is said to have observed the main region silently while in its own home region. Giratina is the only known Pokémon that can learn Shadow Force.

Major appearances

Giratina (movie)

Giratina debuted in Giratina and the Sky Warrior, where it sought revenge against Dialga for the damage it caused to its home, the Reverse region, during its battle with Palkia in The Rise of DarkraiZero later attempted to copy Giratina's powers so he could conquer the Reverse region. Throughout the movie, Giratina would take on its Origin Forme whenever it is in the Reverse region, and its Altered Forme whenever it is in the real world.

In Arceus and the Jewel of Life, Giratina was shown for the first time with both the other members of its trio. It resumed its attack on Dialga, but was finally calmed down through the intervention of Ash and Sheena. It later joined forces with Dialga and Palkia to fight Arceus.

Other

In Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, Giratina was one of six Legendary Pokémon summoned and hypnotized by the shadow Hoopa Unbound as its reinforcements. It and its teammates engaged in a battle against the LatiosLatias, and Shiny Rayquaza summoned to protect the real Hoopa in Dahara City. Eventually, after the shadow Hoopa was sealed in a Prison Bottle, the hypnosis on Giratina and the other Legendary Pokémon was lifted, and Giratina departed for its home. It appeared in both of its formes.

Altered Forme Giratina appears as a Poké Ball summon. It uses Dragon Breath to cause a whirlwind. It also causes damage on contact.

Altered Forme Giratina also appears as a trophy in both versions of the game.

Trophy information

NAThis Ghost/Dragon-type Pokémon is a resident of the Distortion Region. When it is given a Griseous Orb, it'll change into its Origin Forme. Its Dragon Breath attack can catch fighters in a powerful, damaging tornado. If you're on the receiving end, be careful it doesn't carry you right off the stage

PALAlso called the Renegade Pokémon, Giratina lives in a region known as the Distortion Region. It has two forms, and will only be seen in its Origin Forme in our world if it's holding a Griseous Orb. Its Dragon Breath attack composes a powerful tornado that not only damages you, but can carry you off the stage!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Giratina returns as a Poké Ball summon, retaining its behavior from the previous game. It also appears as two Spirits, one in its Altered Forme and the other in its Origin Forme.

Trivia

 
Origin Forme Giratina in the Distortion Region in Pokémon Platinum
 
Altered Forme Giratina at Turnback Cave in Pokémon Platinum
  • Origin Forme Giratina is the tallest Generation IV Pokémon.
  • Giratina has many differences from the other members of its trio:
    • It is the only member with form differences.
    • It is the only member without any double resistances.
    • Its HP is its highest stat rather than Special Attack.
    • It does not have a timespace orb in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl (the Griseous Orb is introduced in Pokémon Platinum).
    • It is met at level 70 in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl while the other members are met at level 47. This is reversed in Pokémon Platinum.
    • It is separated from the other members of its group in the Pokédex by Heatran and Regigigas.
    • It is the only member without a 100% recruit rate in the Mystery Dungeon series.
  • Giratina is tied with LunalaDawn Wings Necrozma, and Shadow Rider Calyrex for the highest base stat total of all Ghost-type Pokémon.
    • Giratina is tied with Drifblim for the highest base HP stat of all Ghost-type Pokémon.
  • In Pokémon Platinum, Giratina is the only Pokémon to come out from above the screen during the start of the battle.

Origin

Furthermore, both of Giratina's Forms resemble the Beasts of Revelation, with its Altered Form standing for the "Earth Beast", and its Origin Form standing for the "Sea Beast".

Giratina may also be based on Seta, a giant centipede, from the Japanese fake fairy-tale, "My Lord Bag of Rice", which was said to prey on dragon hatchlings and be as large as a mountain.

In its Altered Forme, Giratina's wings may be based on a bat's, and its body has an insect-like, six-legged feature, but its posture is similar to a sauropod.

Its Origin Forme has a body similar to the a serpentine body (due to saraph meaning snake or serpent in Islamic languages). Additionally, "Seraphim" alternatively translates to "[the] burning one", which could have been one of the inspirations for Giratina's destructive nature. The exact design of its six wings may be based on a scorpion's stinger or spider legs. This Forme also shares physical traits with the Amphiptere, a European dragon-like creature with wings but no legs.

ts Ghost-type may have been chosen to represent this, being the type of metaphysical and "otherworldly" substances and beings. Additionally, it parallels its counterparts' types; Dialga is part Steel-type, and Palkia is part Water-type - all three reference the three primary states of matter; solid, liquid, and gas.

Name origin

Giratina may be a combination of girasol (a type of red opal), guillotine, or girare (Italian for to wander/turn around); and platina and プラチナ purachina (Japanese for platinum).
