Shiny Pokémon are rare versions of Pokémon in Pokémon go that have an altered appearance. They are called glossy because they have a slight sheen that makes them stand out more than normal versions. In this guide, we explain how to get the shiny versions of Giratina, including their Origin Forme and Altered Forme!

brilliant rates

Aside from Pokemon that don't have shiny versions in the game, each Pokemon has a base shine rating assigned to it that tells you how often you'll see a shiny version of it under normal circumstances. Since Giratina is a Legendary Raid Pokémon, their shine rating is around 1 in 20; so for every 20 Giratinas you find, you'll likely only see one shiny version.

How to Get Shiny Giratina

There is no way to force a Shiny Giratina to spawn. Instead, players simply have to play the game to hope to encounter one. However, there are a few tricks players can use to find them more easily.

  • Play at events featuring Giratina. Giratina can currently only be obtained during Legendary Raids. Although Legendary Raids are rare, Giratina appears in them more often than some other Pokémon. Since this is the only way to get Giratina, the best way to access it is during raid hours. There are two Raid Hours featuring Giratina in October 2021 (October 13 and 20). If you go to an area with a lot of gyms for a raid hour, you're much more likely to encounter a shiny build.
