#487 Giratina

Next is Giratina. Giratina is obtained in an area called the Distortion World. In the Distortion World, all Giratina are in their Origin Forme. When in the real world, they are in their Altered Forme. After you have captured Giratina and defeated the Elite Four. A portal back into another part of the Distortion World appears. In this part of the Distortion World, you will find an Item called the Griseous Orb.

This item, when attached to Giratina, changes its form to the Origin Forme and boosts the power of Giratina's Ghost & Dragon moves. However, when you go online to connect to past games, the item temporarily disappears. This is due to incompatibility with the game. As it disappears, Giratina reverts back to its Altered Forme


Giratina's Forms both have many different attributes including, stats attacks and even ability so it is best that you keep clear in your mind what form has what strengths. Below is a quick and simple rundown.

#492 Shaymin

Finally, Shaymin is the last Pokémon that changes forms. Shaymin is an event Pokémon and as such, there are special circumstances towards changing its form.

In order to get the Key Item called the Glacidia Flower from this girl in Floaroma Town, you need to have the Shaymin given away at the 11th Movie in 2008 or at various events in 2009. The Shaymin captured in this game can also activate this. With this Shaymin, you get the Glacidia Flower. This item is a Key Item and thus does not require attachment. However, to use it, there are a number of conditions. Firstly, it has to be in the Day, meaning from Between 7am to 8pm. Second, Shaymin cannot be Frozen.

Once used, Shaymin will stay in Sky Forme and there are only two ways to make it revert back. First, you put it in a box and it will rever once you place it in. Secondly, when the time hits 8pm, Shaymin will automatically go back from Sky Forme to Land Forme making Shaymin's Sky Forme a Daytime only Pokémon


Shaymin's Forms also both have many different attributes including, stats attacks and even ability so it is best that you keep clear in your mind what form has what strengths. Below is a quick and simple rundown.
