Giratina is a powerful defensive core (150/120/120 defenses), and his Ghost typing makes him immune to Rapid Spin, which was the only way to get rid of hazards in Gen V and before. Giratina-O is more offensive and has Levitate, making him immune to Ground moves as well.
He's no Lugia, but he's definitely not bad.
