Jirachi does not evolve and does not have a pre-evolved form.
Jirachi cannot breed as it is in the Undiscovered Egg Group. It takes Jirachi 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Jirachi takes on the appearance of a fairy that came from the stars, as its head takes the appearance of the top three points of a star.
Jirachi is a Genderless Pokémon.
Like Mew and Celebi before it, Jirachi is only available through promotions from Nintendo, Special Events, the Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disk or Pokémon Channel is required to obtain a Jirachi in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. FireRed and Leaf Green can still Trade with either of the aforementioned games to obtain a Jirachi.
In the Generation IV games a Jirachi can be obtained via a Nintendo WiFi Download event (which lasted a limited amount of time in ), or by transferring one from a Generation III game by way of Pal Park.
Jirachi's rarity extends to the Spin-Off games as well, only appearing at Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
Jirachi can be found on the 99th Floor of Wish Cave in the first run of Mystery Dungeon games. Jirachi is found on the 23rd Floor of Final Maze in Explorers of Time & Explorers of Darkness; in Explorers of Sky Jirachi is at the botoom of Star Cave. In Mystery Dungeon 3, Jirachi appears on the 28th Floor of each game's respective Secret area, but only as part of a WiiConnect24 Event.
Jirachi has yet to appear in any of the Pokémon Ranger games. Jirachi does appear, however, in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure after you beat all the high scores on "Venusaur's Rope Swinging" in the Granite Zone.
Jirachi can be found at Firebreathing Mountain Tower 3-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after meeting 40 people.
Trading Card Game
Jirachi appears in a total of 8 sets, the 6th Movie Halfdeck, Play Promotional (2; 1 EX Card), PokéPark Forest, a Nintendo Promotion and the 10th Movie Commemoration Set.
All 8 of Jirachi's TCG Appearances are as Rare Cards in the following sets: EX Team Magma Vs Team Aqua (Hidden), EX Hidden Legends, EX Deoxys, EX Crystal Guardians (EX Card), Legends Awakened, Rising Rivals, Unleashed, and Call of Legends sets.
Like Mew and Celebi before it, Jirachi is one of the Pokémon that appears from a Poké Ball in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Instead of doing damage, it slowly flies off, dropping Stickers, which fall slowly to the floor.
Jirachi has yet to appear in one of the TV episodes.
Jirachi is the primary focus and a main character of the 6th Movie, Jirachi Wishmaker, in which Ash and company find come across a Jirachi at an amusement park. However, a member of Team Magma has fell intentions, using a wish from Jirachi to create a fake version of the Ancient Pokémon Groudon.
Jirachi would awaken from its millennium-long slumber during the opening of Hoenn's Battle Frontier, which would be sought out by both Guile Hideout and Emerald, but for two very different reasons. Guile Hideout would be the one to capture Jirachi, and he used its wishing powers to create a monstrous Kyogre with the intention of flooding the Battle Frontier.
However, Emerald would also have a wish granted by Jirachi, which would turn the tide in the struggle against Guile Hideout. His wish to Jirachi was to free the other five Pokédex holders that had become petrified during a battle that involved both Deoxys and Mewtwo.
Jirachi would fulfill one more wish. Scott wished for the Battle Frontier to have more visitors, after which it would begin its millennium-long slumber once again.
Jirachi appears in Chapters 310, 311, 313-316, 318, 319, 323-326, 328-335 & 337.
Jirachi resides in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. With solid defenses and typing, Jirachi acts as a phenomenal check to a number of threat in OU, such as Mega Diancie, Clefable, Mega Gardevoir, and Latios. Its huge movepool allows it to take on many different roles, from offensive sets that allow Jirachi to revenge kill or lure in specific threats or defensive sets having immense utility with Wish. Serene Grace as an ability gives Jirachi the ability to turn the tides against the opponent by giving Jirachi's attacks a better chance for secondary effects to occur, which is particularly notable with Iron Head and its 60% flinch chance when considering Serene Grace. Jirachi's best set is a Stealth Rock set where it can act as a nice check to a large chunk of special attacking threats while having Healing Wish to heal up a teammate fully in exchange for its own life. Its Choice Scarf set can revenge kill threats while acting as a pivot with U-turn and having great utility with a fast Healing Wish to ensure a Pokémon can be healthy when it switches in. Other notable sets include a Substitute + Toxic set that can wear down Pokémon meant to counter Jirachi while having Iron Head to potentially prevent foes from healing up, a mixed attacker lure set that can surprise unsuspecting Pokémon with moves like Icy Wind and Thunderbolt, and a specially defensive set that is among the best counters for Mega Gardevoir while providing Wish support for itself and the team. Jirachi's biggest flaw is its relatively average offenses with low powered STAB moves that can be problematic when considering dangerous threats like Mega Charizard X and Garchomp can easily switch in.
Jirachi is also a viable option in the Uber tier of competitive battling. With a typing that allows for it to check various threats such as Latios, Latias, and Mega Diancie, Jirachi can be a useful utility Pokémon for teams. Its Choice Scarf set acts as a pivot that can annoy opposing teams with Iron Head flinches and heal up a Pokémon with Healing Wish. Jirachi differentiates itself from other specially defensive Steel-types with its access to Wish and its ability to paralyze Ground-types with Body Slam. Wish is especially helpful for Pokémon that lack reliable recovery such as Mega Diancie, Primal Groudon, and Giratina-O. The most glaring flaws in Jirachi are its tendency to be bait for huge threats such as Primal Groudon, Ho-oh, and Ghost Arceus. With its pitifully weak damage output, Jirachi can prove to be easy set-up bait for specific threats and lacks the ability to heavily damage Pokémon even with super effective attacks.
Jirachi cannot breed and therefore doesn't have any Egg Moves.
