There is some basic information you need to know about Altered Forme Giratina. We have listed everything below.

Giratina Altered Form

  • Type: Ghost, Dragon
  • Weak against: Dark, Dragon, Fairy, Ghost, Ice
  • Strong against: Fighting, Normal, Bug, Electric, Fire, Grass, Water, Poison
  • Notes:
    • Giratina's dual type gives it extra resistance or damage against many different Pokemon. It is recommended to have a piece specially designed to face them, of the Dark, Fairy or Ice type.
    • Even though Dragon and Ghost types deal bonus damage to Giratina, they are also vulnerable to Giratina's attacks. If you're using a Dragon or Ghost Pokemon, it's absolutely crucial that they're upgraded with the strongest attacks and a Weather Boost. You should also pay attention to their secondary types, as they could make a Dragon Pokémon even more vulnerable. to Giratina's dragon attacks.


Because Mega Pokémon are rarely used, we chose not to include them in the list of best counters.

Zacian and Darkrai are probably the best options on the list above as they have better resistance to Giratina attacks. If you don't have any of the above Pokémon, it's highly recommended that you go for a Fairy-type Pokémon or a Dark-type Pokémon.

That's all you need to know about the next Raid Boss!
