Legendary Pokémon Giratina has returned to Pokémon Go for a limited time only – and it's ready to transform.
Giratina in its Altered Forme originally appeared in Pokémon Go in November 2018, but this time the Renegade Pokémon has reemerged from the Distortion World to "renew and transform". That means an extra form to battle against.
Starting March 28, Altered Forme Giratina will return to Pokémon raids until April 2, when it will transform into Origin Forme. You will then be able to battle Origin Forme Giratina until April 29.
