Template:PokéBoxPanel Template:Nihongo is a Legendary Template:Type/Template:Type-type Pokémon. Giratina is the Version Mascot for Pokémon Platinum. It is a member of the Creation Trio, alongside Dialga and Palkia.

Biology

Physiology

Giratina's Altered Forme is a giant, dragon-like Pokémon, with an appearance similar to that of a large sauropod. It has 6 legs, gold protrusions that look like external ribs, and golden horns on its head. Its neck has five red stripes and 4 black stripes. On its back, it has a black stripe pattern that extends to its legs. It has black wings with three red thorn-like appendages called girasols (a rare type of opal) coming out of them. Giratina's Origin Forme is more serpentine (like an amphitheater) than its Altered Forme. Its wings are now shaped like tentacles with the red thorn-like appendages sticking out at the end. Its mouth is now behind the two appendages in front of its face. They open when Giratina roars or etc. The horns on its head are still the same. Giratina in Origin Forme has five rows of golden spikes protruding out of the torso and near the tail. Five gray and red stripes are partially overlapped by these spikes.

Natural abilities

Giratina's Origin Forme.

Like some Pokémon, it has a signature move, called Shadow Force, which hits the opponent without fail even if the foe uses Protect or Detect beforehand. When in its Origin Forme, it retains its phenomenal amounts of HP, like any other Pokémon that is in their alternate formes, and it focuses on more offensive moves, and less on the defensive moves. It switches its Attack stats with its Defense stats in its Origin Forme, making it a great powerhouse. It is also a vastly powerful Pokémon that can use these benefits to fit the trainer's focus on attacking.

It will become Origin Forme when in the Distortion World, or when holding the Griseous Orb.

Behavior

Among the most complex Pokémon to understand, Giratina is both malevolent and dreaded in both its nature and appearance. For all the fear it receives, Giratina can be merciful to less evil creatures. A decent example of its merciful side is that it will freely allow the player to enter and leave the distortion world, even in defeat and despite Team Galactic's previous meddling.

In the 11th movie, Giratina was angered by Dialga and Palkia for polluting it's home by having a battle, time and pace were being distorted. In the 11th and 12th movie, Giratina continued to attack Dialga but it was calmed by Ash and Sheena.

Evolution

Giratina does not evolve.

Pokémon Mythology

Giratina, along with Dialga and Palkia, was created when Arceus hatched from its egg. Arceus tasked Giratina to create the universe alongside Dialga and Palkia. Giratina was known (other than Mewtwo) to be one of the most aggressive Pokémon. Because of this, Arceus banished Giratina to the Distortion World, where it supposedly would be trapped forever to balance the Distortion World.

Appearances

Anime

Main article: Giratina (anime)

Giratina has a large role in the 11th Pokémon movie serving as one of primary protagonists, Giratina and the Sky Warrior, where it tries to attack Dialga for polluting its dimension with its earlier battles with Palkia. However, later on it is captured by Zero and after he tries to absorb its powers it had to deal with a machine which just obtained its powers. Giratina is rescued by Ash and his friends, with help from Shaymin. Giratina also has a role in the 12th Pokémon movie, Arceus and the Jewel of Life, where Giratina, Dialga, and Palkia fends off Arceus as Ash and friends prevent the betrayal long ago from happening.

Main article: Giratina (MS018)

A Giratina appeared in the 18th movie as one of several Legendary Pokémon summoned by Hoopa Unbound in order to attack its light side.

Trivia

  • Along with Palkia and Dialga, their eyes resemble those of Arceus's.
  • In the anime, Giratina has the same roar as the monster Mothra, who initially starred in her own movie, before being absorbed by the Godzilla franchise.
    • Giratina is not the only monster to have a roar from the Toho Sound Library. Palkia, Zekrom, Reshiram, and Kyurem also have roars used by monsters in the Godzilla franchise (part of Palkia's roar came from a Skywalker Sound, the Boga).
  • If one listens closely, Girantina's cry sounds like it has background music.
  • Giratina is currently the only Pokémon to fall down from the top of the screen at the start of its wild encounter (though this only occurs in Platinum).
  • At the start of the Distortion World battle in Platinum, the message says "The Distortion World's Giratina appeared!". This is another one-off, but this only appears once. From there on, references state "The wild Giratina".
  • In Super Smash Bros., Giratina is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the move Dragon Breath.
  • Giratina, in both forms, is the heaviest and the biggest Template:Type-type Pokémon.
  • Giratina is the only Creation Trio member to actually become a main protagonist of the movie.
  • In Platinum, Giratina's Battle Theme has the sound of a flatline

Origin

Giratina is possibly based on Fallen Angels, beings who despised God and were sent to Hell (similarly reflecting how Giratina despised Arceus and was sent to another dimension). It is also possibly based on Seta, a giant centipede from Japanese folklore that ate baby dragons and was as tall as a mountain. The fact it has 6 legs, 6 wing spines and 6 gold ribs on its chest could be a reference to 666, which is the Devil's Number. It might also be referencing to multiple visions of Satan, which are often seen as a serpent. Along with these resemblances, Giratina's species is the Renegade Pokémon; this may also be referencing the fact that in the Bible, Lucifer became "renegade", separating himself from God, before the creation of the world. It may also be based on Samael, the god of destruction that, despite being chaotic, has a god-like and heavenly ruler, similarly how Giratina is often associated with death and destruction while it is still under the rule of Arceus, a heavenly god-like being. Samael is also the 5th God of Heaven, and Giratina is the 5th Legendary Sinnoh Pokémon in Pokédex order after the Lake Guardians.

Both of its forms are similar to the Beasts Of Revelation, with its Altered Forme looking like the Earth Beast and its Origin Forme looking like the Sea Beast. Its Altered Forme shares some physical traits with sauropod dinosaurs. Most of the golden parts of its body are also similar to bones, most notably, a rib cage. Its Origin Forme shares some physical traits with spiders, scorpions, bats, snakes, and spiders, all being animals sometimes depicted as evil or nightmarish in fiction. Its Origin Forme is also likely based on the ancient legend of Amphiptere, a dragon that had wings, but no legs. Its relation with Dialga being based on solids and Palkia on liquids, Giratina is possibly based on antimatter or gas.

Etymology

Giratina comes from "guillotine", "girasol" (a type of red opal), and "purachina" (Japanese for platinum).
