After Mewtwo leaves tier five raids in Pokémon Go, Altered Forme Giratina is coming back, this time with a chance to be Shiny.
From Sept. 23 at 4 p.m. until Oct. 17 at 4 p.m. ET, Altered Forme Giratina will be the star of tier five raids.
Altered Forme Giratina pales in comparison to its Origin Forme sibling, but is still worth collecting if you loved Pokémon Platinum or you just need a Pokédex entry. This time around, Altered Forme Giratina will also have a chance to be Shiny if you’re lucky.
This return means that Origin Forme Giratina will likely hit raids soon after Altered Forme leaves, so consider saving your raid passes for its much stronger form, though there’s no guarantee when it’s going to come back. Origin Forme Giratina is the undisputed best ghost-type attacker in the game.
Do note that Mewtwo’s rescheduled raid hour is during Giratina’s reappearance, so on Oct. 8 from 6-7 p.m. in your local time, Giratina will be swapped out with Mewtwo.
