Giratina and the Sky Warrior (ギラティナと氷空の花束 シェイミ Giratina and the Sky's Bouquet: Shaymin) is the 11th Pokémon movie, and the second movie in the Diamond and Pearl series' time period. It premiered on July 19, 2008 in Japan and on February 13, 2009 in United States on Cartoon Network at 7:00 p.m. It stars the Pokémon Shaymin, Giratina, Regigigas and Dialga. Other significant Pokémon include Magnezone, Magneton, and Magnemite belonging to the main antagonist, Zero and his robot Infi. Zero aims to use Giratina's power over the Reverse World to rule it, however, he needs the Shaymin that Ash, Dawn and Brock have befriended to open a portal from Giratina to escape. Zero wants to destroy the Real World because it pollutes the Reverse World. Cover Pokémon is Giratina.
Giratina is the sole Pokemon living in the Reverse World, a little-known realm adjacent to our own. Enraged when Dialga and Palkia disrupt time and space, it drags Dialga into the Reverse World for a battle--but the conflict is broken up by a tiny Shaymin, the Gratitude Pokemon!
After departing the Reverse World and meeting Ash and his friends, Shaymin--communicating telepathically--asks for help, so it can be reunited with the other Shaymin in the Gracidea garden.
Soon after Ash and his friends agree to assist Shaymin, they're dragged into the Reverse World and meet Newton Graceland, who's been researching the mysterious realm. Little do they know that Newton's former assistant, Zero, seeks to harness Giratina's power to rule the Reverse World, even if that means destroying the real world!
Can our heroes and their Pokemon thwart Zero's evil plans and protect both worlds? Will Giratina resolve its differences with Dialga? And what will Ash and his friends learn about that special Shaymin?
