Pokemon GO Giratina Origin Counters & Weakness

We’re gonna get into the Origin Forme Giratina best moveset in a second, let’s first go over its weakness and best counters. The weaknesses are actually the same as with Altered Forme Giratina (we’ve covered more similarities in our Giratina Form Change & Differences guide). It does not do well against Dragon, Ice, Ghost, Fairy and Dark attacks; the all deal 160% damage. With that in mind, here are some of the best Pokemon to use in this fight.

  • Mega Gengar with Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball
  • Shadow Salamence with Dragon Tail and Draco Meteor
  • Shadow Dragonite with Dragon Tail and Draco Meteor
  • Mega Banette with Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball
  • Shadow Mamoswine with Powder Snow and Avalanche
  • Mega Houndoom (or Shadow) with Snarl and Foul Play
  • Mega Absol (or Shadow) with Snarl and Payback
  • Shadow Gardevoir with Charm and Dazzling Gleam
  • Mega Abomasnow with Powder Snow and Weather Ball
  • Mega Latios (or Shadow) with Dragon Breath and Dragon Claw
  • Mega Latias (or Shadow) with Dragon Breath and Outrage
  • Palkia with Dragon Tail and Draco Meteor
  • Rayquaza with Dragon Tail and Outrage
  • Garchomp with Dragon Tail and Outrage

Pokemon GO Origin Forme Giratina Best Moveset

Now that we know the best counters for Origin Forme Giratina and its weakness in Pokemon GO, let’s dive into its best moveset. It’s not entirely the same as Altered Forme Giratina. Your absolute best choice in this case is Dragon Tail (Dragon) as your Quick Attack and Shadow Ball (Ghost) as your Charged Attack. If you really want to go full Ghost, you can substitute Dragon Tail with Shadow Claw.

That pretty much covers all the Quick Attacks Giratina Origin can have. As for the other Charged Attacks, it can also have Ominous Wind (Ghost) or Dragon Pulse (Dragon). However, I don’t really recommend either of these. Shadow Ball is perfect for all of your needs.
