Greetings, travelers! With Halloween fast approaching, Giratina, the Renegade Pokémon, has once again appeared in its Altered Forme. Starring in Legendary Raid Battles that will shake dimensions from September 23 until October 17, lucky trainers will now be able to encounter Shiny Altered Forme Giratina! Additionally, on September 25 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm local time, Giratina will appear more frequently in five-star raids. Our researchers have laced up their gravity-defying sneakers and set out to conquer the ruler of antimatter. Here are the results so far!

Since Giratina’s emergence, researchers have completed 271 raids and caught 10 shinies. This is too small a sample size to draw definitive conclusions on in isolation, but these data appear to be in line with previous evidence for a Legendary shiny rate of
1 in 20 (99% CI of 1 in 14 – 59)
The Silph team will continue to monitor shiny rates and provide updates throughout the event. Until then, safe travels, and happy raiding!
