Pokemon GO: how to get Giratina

Until October 17, Pokemon GO coaches can participate in the Giratina Raid in Altered form, with the possibility of capturing the creature in its Shiny (chromatic) variant. We explain to you how to prepare for the Raid, indicating the best Pokemon to deploy on the field.

The Altered form of Giratina can be captured with the following PL values:

  • 1848 – 1931 PL at level 20, without improving the weather
  • 2310 – 2414 PL at level 25 with the improvement of the weather in case of wind or fog

Being weak to Sprite, Dark, Dragon, Ghost and Ice-type attacks, the best-attacking Pokemon to use against Giratina’s Altered form are those able to perform these types of moves.

Best ever attacking Pokemon

The most effective attacking Pokemon ever against the Altered Giratina form are the following:

  • Rayquaza: Codadrago, Outrage
  • Palkia: Codadrago, Dragobolide

Excellent attacking Pokemon

Other optimal options, although less effective than Rayquaza and Palkia, are:

  • Dragonite: Codadrago, Outrage
  • Salamence: Codadrago, Dragobolide
  • Latios: Dragospiro, Dragartigli
  • Dialga: Dragospiro, Dragobolide
  • Mewtwo: Psycho Cut, Shadow Ball
  • Gengar: Ombrartigli, Palla Ombra
  • Banette: Ombrartigli, Palla Ombra
  • Tyranitar (Shadow): Bite, Crunch

To increase your chances of success, we advise you to face the Raid in the company of other coaches, in order to join your strength. Using the Pokemon and the moves listed above, you will be able to inflict a great amount of damage on Giratina’s Altered form, bringing you closer to victory faster.

How to get Giratina in Altered and Shiny form

Once you have defeated the Giratina Altered form in the Raid, the Pokemon will appear in the wild to be captured. At this point all you have to do is use the Pokeballs and Berries at your disposal to capture the creature, trying to make optimal (possibly curved) launches to increase your chances of capture.

With a good dose of luck, the altered form of Giratina may also appear in its chromatic version (Shiny). If this does not happen, you can always try to deal with other raids. In this regard, we point out that between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm (GMT +2) on Wednesday, September 25th, the five-star Raids that see the protagonist Pokemon will be more numerous. In any case, remember that you will have the chance to meet him until 22:00 (GMT +2) on Thursday 17 October!

Speaking of the upcoming events on Pokemon GO, don’t forget that the October community day will be dedicated to Trapinch.
