Distortion World - Catching Giratina

Go after Cynthia when the brief scene ends. At the center is an elevator
which will take you down to a new floor. Mesprit will appear here so move
after it. You will soon get to see your character defy physics. Try to
get a hang of things first before continuing further.

Once you're ready, go along the path and hop on platforms towards the
elevator and step on the central depression to go down. There, hop onto the
square, then onto the upper one to go forward, then pick the left one on
the next platform. Press left again to join Cynthia on her spot

Talk to her to continue. Head to the opposite side, leap to the side then
move the elevator east. The next platform should also go east, then the next
one should go down. For the next platform, move it left, hop onto the north
spot then step on the upper one to head further down.

Next, head east on this platform towards an elevator. Again, stand on the
middle to descend. Stand on the lower depression to reveal the next set of
platforms. Go along the path until you meet Cyrus. After he leaves, continue
downward to an intersection. Go east then north. Now, step on the northeast
depression onto a new platform. Here, go straight ahead a bit then go south
and into the depression to reveal a set of platforms.

Go on to the opposite side, onto the T-shaped platform. Hop onto a new
elevator going down. There, navigate along the floating platforms until you
reach solid ground. Head south and try to leap off, so that Uxie shows up.

Leap off the ledge, and use Strength to push the boulder into the hole. Hop
to the bottom and take one more elevator down. Hop off from the west side
onto the main platform, and make your way to the boulder up ahead. Push that
boulder into the hole next to where Uxie is. Doing this wrong will result in
a do-over so be careful. After that, go to the far west end, following the
narrow path 90 degrees to Cynthia's location. Take the elevator back up.

Now, head left atound to the boulder and move it to plug the hole, after
Mesprit appears. Go around to the next elevator, going up afterwards. Hop
off west once again and follow the path all the way up to the next elevator.
Jump off west and head south to reveal a platform, allowing you to get to
the other side. Go right to see another one and cross it. Hop off the
T-shaped platform to activate another elevator going down. Surf on the water
towards land, and keep going until you spot a sideways platform. Get on it
to the next platform and use that one to reach another foothold on the
ceiling. Move around towards the water and surf to a sideways waterfall.
Drop along the falls until you reach the bottom. Surf northwest towards land.

Azelf appears this time. Push the boulder into the hole. Now, go around the
platform and leap off at the end to reach the elevator. Hop over to the first
ledge to activate this lift. Once the lift stops, go west and move the
boulder to Mesprit's desired hole. After that, go right and push the next
boulder into Azelf's desired hole. Now, go find Cynthia and talk to her.

Save your game and take the new elevator down. Follow Cynthia off the lift
and talk to Cyrus to fight him.

 ----------------------- ----------------------------- ---------- 
| Boss                  | Pokemon                     | Rewards  |
----------------------- ----------------------------- ----------
|                       | Houndoom (Lv. 45)           |  --      |
|                       | Gyarados  (Lv. 46)          |  --      |
| Galactic Boss Cyrus   | Crobat (Lv. 46)             |  --      |
|                       | Honchkrow (Lv. 47)          |          |
|                       | Weavile (Lv. 48)            |  $8640   |
----------------------- ----------------------------- ----------
| Both the Gyarados and Crobat are weak to electric attacks. The |
| former has Waterfall and the latter has Confuse Ray. Avoid     |
| using fire-based Pokemon when fighting a water-type enemy. The |
| Honchkrow has Heat Wave, which spells trouble for Steel-types. |
| The Weavile, like Sneasel is weak to fight-type moves.         |

After the battle, Cyrus leaves and Cynthia heals your party. Move
forward and jump onto the platforms. Save your game when you reach the
third one. Giratina will attack you.

| Legendary Pokemon Giratina                                     |
| Giratina is weak to Ghost, Dark, and Ice-type attacks. Even    |
| though the 3 elements are its weaknesses, none of them deal a  |
| lot of damage, so you'll have to slowly chip away its HP using |
| your best available Pokemon. Also, Giratina's Shadow Force     |
| makes it invisible. You can't capture it with Poke Balls at    |
| this time. I would recommend throwing Dusk Balls when you get  |
| target down to a tiny chunk of health.                         |

Once Giratina is caught, leave this area through the portal that appears.
You will then emerge at the entrance of the Turnback Cave, where Giratina
used to live in Diamond/Pearl. You can now try to capture the legendary
Pokemon in Lakes Valor, Verity and Acuity.

Added 9th Jun 2012, ID #150830

THANX!!!!! This helped soooo much btw u can also just use a master ball. i did

Added 29th May 2012, ID #146760

first go to disortion world in the spear pillar and you'll have to figure out how to get through it. when you;re close to battling giratina cyrus of team galactic will appear and challenge you to a battle his pokemon are: houndoom, crobat, gyarados, honckrow, and weavile. after you beat cyrus, just keep going and you'll battle giratina. i request you use the master ball.

I recommend using the Master Ball. Not Dusk balls.

Added 11th Feb 2011, ID #28768

if you do the ezy bit on your own it's easy to understand the guide

Added 10th Jan 2011, ID #24855

how do you get to that point that you do that

Added 3rd Jan 2011, ID #23951

I havent got there yet but it sounds ok

Added 3rd Jan 2011, ID #23941

This a very good guide. Its following needs concentrating, but to sum it up, there's no errors and it's quite clear.

Added 29th Dec 2010, ID #22942

best guide ever

Added 30th Nov 2010, ID #19808

Giratina is pretty easy to catch. I almost KO'd it with my Lv.50 Luxray's Crunch. The hard part is when you have to keep throwing Dusk Balls to catch it.

Added 26th Oct 2010, ID #16370

thankz very much pouh

Added 10th Oct 2010, ID #14822

its not that hard to figure out on your own anyway. no use to criticize the guide, you should criticize yourselves for needing one

Added 16th Sep 2010, ID #12758

i agree pictures would be great cause the walkthrough did not help me at all but your little chart thingy did
