Getting your hands on a shiny Giratina Origin in Pokemon GO in 2022 is pretty difficult, so much so that you might not know whether it even can be shiny. In this guide, we are going to be discussing just that, including how to tell the difference between the two. We’ll also tell you what you need to do in order to hopefully catch a shiny Origin Forme Giratina.
Can Giratina Origin Be Shiny in Pokemon GO
Yes, Origin Forme Giratina can be shiny in Pokemon GO in 2022, just like Giratina Altered. The similarities don’t end there; the color palette changes are pretty much identical. The yellows and the whites change places (the body is yellow instead of white, the “head armor” and and side spikes are white instead of yellow). The stripes going down Giratina’s neck are blue instead of red when it’s shiny, and the tips of its “wings” have the same color change. So, yeah; there’s no way you can confuse the two versions. Now, of course, there’s still the problem of how rare all shiny Pokemon are. Giratina Origin is, sadly, no exception. And to make matters worse, the Legendary Pokemon appears pretty much only in five-star Raids.
Fortunately for those of you trying to get a shiny Giratina Origin in Pokemon GO, you’ll get your chance really soon. It will be the star of five-Star Raids from October 27th to November 8th, 2022. So, that will be your best shot to catch a shiny Origin Forme Giratina in the foreseeable future. Obviously, you’ll have to contend with its extreme rarity. Basically, you’ll have to participate in every single raid that you come across and hope for the best. It’s hardly ideal, but it’s better than nothing. Just be sure to stock up on healing items and other stuff you’ll need for a pretty tough fight.
