Trivia

  • The Griseous Orb is actually crystal-like in shape, not spherical like the Adamant Orb and the Lustrous Orb. It is also the only one of the three orbs not to be included in the Pokémon Anime.
  • If a Giratina with the Griseous Orb is taken into a battle against a player from Diamond or Pearl, the Griseous Orb will go back to the player's bag. This is probably because Origin Forme is not available in Diamond and Pearl.
  • If a Giratina with the Griseous Orb is traded with another Gen IV game, then the Griseous Orb will go back to the player's bag. This was changed in Generation V, where it can be traded between games since.
  • Prior to Gen V, only Giratina could hold the Griseous Orb.
