The IVs of a Pokémon can't really be raised, so to find a Pokémon worth investing resources into will be a matter of catching a bunch and appraising them all. If it's for Giratina, it'll be worth examining which one of it's formes is worth acquiring.

Perfect Giratina CP Pokémon GO: Altered Forme

Giratina Altered Forme is when it has legs. It takes this form when it leaves its native Distortion World. As Giratina isn't in its element here, this forme is slightly weaker. Altered Forme has a max CP of 3,379.

Perfect Giratina CP Pokémon GO: Origin Forme

Giratina's true form sees it at peak power. This is the forme Giratina takes when it resides in its home dimension. Giratina-Origin has a max CP of 3,683.

Both Giratinas are quite formidable in competitive, and they actually compete with each other over which is stronger. Origin forme takes the crown due to the CP increase, but it's only a marginal distance. Giratina is one of the strongest Pokémon in the game, so you can't go wrong with either.
