List of game-based Pokémon

Channel Jirachi

Players can obtain Jirachi in both the European and Australian versions of Pokémon Channel. It can be downloaded onto a version of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. After unlocking the full version of Pichu Bros. in Party Panic, Jirachi will appear, and the mini-movie will be shown above the campfire. The Berry glitch in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire can also be fixed. Due to a programming error,[1] this Jirachi can be Shiny.

Pokémon Box Bonus Eggs

When a certain number of Pokémon are deposited from a game cartridge into Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire, an additional Pokémon Egg will be deposited, presented as a gift from Brigette. The Pokémon that hatches will know a special move that it would not learn normally and that cannot be passed down through breeding. The deposited Pokémon do not all need to have the same original Trainer ID number, but must be transferred from the same game cartridge into Pokémon Box. This means that, in cases where a player has access to multiple games, all of the Pokémon can be transferred to one, then moved into Box. The Pokémon that are available from the special Eggs are:
