Come to the dark side, people… We have ghost dragons!
Giratina is a legendary Pokémon, so we only have few informations about this strange and dark creature. It is a very large draconic Pokémon, more than four metres long. Its scales are grey and it has red and black stripes on the body. There are three golden rings around its neck and five pairs of spikes on both sides. Giratina also has a golden mask, similar to a crown, with two horns. Behind this mask, bloody red eyes are hidden. Its wings are very weird, they look like an insect legs but they’re made of gaseous matter. Giratina only has this appearance while traveling in its home, the Distortion World.
When in our world, Giratina changes its form. This altered form is not very different from the original one, the Dragon Pokémon gains six sturdy legs and a more solid look.
When the Renegade Pokémon travels through the two dimensions of space and time, it continuously changes form. It is a very aggressive Pokémon, in fact it was banished from our world for its violence and forced to live in another dimension. However, it is thought that Giratina can be found in cemeteries sometimes or in the Turnback Cave.
Giratina is often connected to insects, maybe because of its look and in particular its legs and wings, but it is still a Dragon. We will also find this connection when we will talk about another Dragon Pokémon, Flygon.
The curious thing is that this Pokémon is actually based on an insect from the Japanese Mythology. The concept of Giratina draws inspiration from Ōmukade, a giant centipede that lives in the mountains near Lake Biwa. It is thought that this beast is so large and ferocious that even dragons fear it. Ōmukade often eats baby dragons after killing their mother. .
