Appearing in the Pokémon TCG for the first time in its Origin Forme, Giratina (Platinum, 10/127) is a hefty Basic Pokémon with 100 Hit Points and 3 attacks. For 2 Colorless Energy, Giratina's Over Slash attack does 10 damage to each of your opponent's Pokémon. This is a great way to spread around damage, allowing you to pick off a Pokémon seeking refuge on the Bench. Dark Wing Flaps does 20 damage, and then allows you to choose a card from your opponent's hand without looking. Once you've checked to see what card it is, your opponent must then shuffle that card into his or her deck. The damage from Dark Wing Flaps isn't massive, but if you pick the right card, you can disrupt your opponent's game plan. If you need to pack a bigger punch, Giratina's Wrack Down attack does 60 damage—no strings attached!
