Trivia

  • This card was originally included in the Giratina vs Dialga Deck Kit but was delayed, along with other related cards, due to Giratina's inclusion in Giratina and the Sky Warrior.
  • This is the first card in the DP Series to lack a Pokédex entry even though it is a regular Pokémon with only two pieces of card text and no held item.

Origin

This card is based on Giratina's Altered Forme, one of the two different forms that it can take on in the Pokémon games. Earth Power is a move in the Pokémon games that Giratina can learn.
