Effect

In battle

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Does it check the Pokémon's species before or after using Transform (in each generation)?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

If held by Giratina, it increases the power of its Dragon- and Ghost-type moves by 20%.

Unaffected by item negating effects (such as Embargo and Klutz). Item manipulating effects (such as Trick and Fling) cannot give Giratina a Griseous Orb or remove a Griseous Orb from Giratina.

Outside of battle

It allows Giratina to remain in its Origin Forme outside of the Distortion World.

In Pokémon Platinum and HeartGold and SoulSilver, only Giratina can hold a Griseous Orb, and Pokémon holding a Griseous Orb cannot be traded. From Generation V onward, these restrictions no longer apply.
