Giratina Forms

  • Altered Giratina
  • Origin Giratina

Forms have different stats and can learn different moves from tutors. Moves are retained through form changes. Giratina transforms into Origin Forme in the Distortion World or while holding a Griseous Orb. Otherwise, it assumes its Altered Forme.

In Generation IV, the Griseous Orb returns to the bag upon entering the Wi-Fi Club or the Union Room.
