Aren't the tags hanging from its head from a Japanese festival?

The New Year's Festival, IIRC. Not sure if it has a name, but don't they place wishing tags on trees in the hopes that the wishes written on them come true? Evkl 08:09, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, that's it.

Excuse me, but do you mind that Jirachi's entry says that it's similiar to the Beanstar from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga? I know the idea might be farfected, but it's a possiblity.--Pokencyclopedia 06:45, 6 September 2005 (CDT)


Would someone be kind enough to explain to me how exactly Jirachi resembles Dimentio? In look, and in action the two characters have little in common. Trainer-c 09:01, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

The star thing, that's all. But seriously, get rid of all the similarity things. OptimatumTalk|09:02 23 Mar 2008
Dimentio is not shaped like a star... he is supposed to resemble a court jester. Trainer-c 09:07, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Dimento? Please. Thats almost as bad as my idea that espeon looks like the sonic charater Blaze The Cat.Glitchym1~♥ 21:34, 25 November 2009 (UTC)


Should it be noted that Jirachi is obtainable via a special Pokemon Colosseum preview disk that came with Jirachi: Wish Maker? That's how I got my jirachi, a few years back. -- Chris 03:50, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Or, to be more accurate, the Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disc. -- Chris 07:12, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, you get the Bonus Disc if you pre-ordered Colosseum. I didn't pre-order, and I wanted a Jirachi so bad those four years ago. BlueJirachi 02:48, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

At the time, my then girlfriend had the disk and gave me one. Still have it, in my Diamond PC.

Grass and electric?

Is it really nessecary to mention Jirachi can learn some Grass and Electric type moves? - unsigned comment from Zephy.Changes (talkcontribs)

Nope. — Laoris (Blah) 22:46, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

excuse me

i think there's something wrong with Jirachi's move set. Doesn't it get a STAB point from Doom Desire since it is part Steel?--PG1 FTW! 12:32, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Doom Desire don't receive STAB since it's typeless, much like Future Sight. Ҝəυzø8 12:35, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

but is says it's type is steel. im still confused.--PG1 FTW! 13:49, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it is a Steel-type, but it does not take type into account, ignore weakness, immunity and resistance. See this page if you want proper explanation. Ҝəυzø8 13:53, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

HG/SS Location

If Jirachi is only available from a bonus disk, why is HG/SS pokemon location TRADE, shouldnt it be pal park, and shouldnt the name colouring be blank, yet its coloured as though its available through catching, breeding, evolving or you recieve it... or am I wrong? --Ben7229 00:00, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

"Trade" is the default location. We haven't quite got around to updating it yet. —darklordtrom 05:39, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

oh...ok!--Ben7229 19:24, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Also, it isn't solely avalable via the Bonus Disc. There have been numerous Daisuki events in Japan, most notably the NZ event and more than likely one heading to the U.S. so technically it is trade as well. -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 19:27, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
actually, you may already know this by now, jirachi is avalable in an upcoming HG/SS wi-fi event that opens up the night sky pokewalker(?) course. - Geomexis 13:21, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
This is from November. They probably know this. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 13:24, 17 January 2010 (UTC)


When I got my Pikachu-Colored Pichu from GameStop the guy at the counter showed me a flyer suggesting that there will be a Jiriachi download (like the Pichu) Feb. 27- March 13. Is this true? I can't find it on Bulbapedia or GameStop's website.--NEOgreenSOROU 14:39, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Yes it is true. It is on bulbapedia, though on the event Pokémon 2010 page. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 14:41, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Smeargle, Jirachi Doom Desire.

The article says Jirachi is the only Pokémon that learns Doom Desire. Does that mean Sketch can't work on it? If Sketch can work on it, then the wording in the article should be changed to imply Jirachi is the only Pokémon to learn the move through level up. Yami 19:23, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

When we talk about learning stuff, we usually exclude Sketch because Smeargle can learn EVERYTHING. —darklordtrom 05:28, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Mystery Dungeon

The Wish Cave article says that wishing for "something good?" will either raise the rescue team to the next rank or give a non-recruited boss Pokémon. But what if you already have the Lucario Rank? Will it automatically give the boss Pokémon? QuackOfaThousandSuns 20:37, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Eye of Truth?

Can someone (or even me) add the fact that Jirachi's "Eye of Truth" is opened in its R/S/E sprite, while it's closed in the D/P/Pt/HG/SS sprite? Or it isn't necessary anymore? Palkia38 12:01, 22 April 2010 (UTC)


The trivia says that it is the only Pokémon to learn the same move twice by level up, but what about Smeargle and Sketch? Zappyton 14:28, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

You're right. I've removed that trivia. --AndyPKMN 17:39, 2 November 2010 (UTC)


Shouldn't we explain what the Eye of Truth does? ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 13:02, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

No wild location?

...Aren't there a ton of Pokémon with no in-game location? Like trade-only Pokémon (Magmortar, Politoed etc.), starters, many fully-evolved Pokemon (especially those that require stones to evolve). I could go on, but you get the point. Frenchhorn 23:46, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

What are you trying to say here out of curiosity, a statement isn't really a question? --Spriteit 11:18, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Jirachi a Fairy?

Still not sure, maybe just an sensation, but i think Jirachi had become an Fairy Type, so we need to use the Pokemon Bank to see if its true... --WikiAldo (talk) 23:45, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

It's not. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:47, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Type Effectiveness Across Generations

The Type Effectiveness box says Jirachi is damaged normally by Ghost and Dark type attacks in Generations 2 - 5, although it didn't exist in generation 2. Is this auto-written by the website's formatting or can it be changed to say generations 3 - 5? - unsigned comment from Scribbl (talkcontribs)

It's automatic, and you can't right now. I kinda did note this oddity on the talk page. Eridanus (talk) 08:32, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Jirachi as Male by Nintendo

While I am browsing Nintendo, I found something somewhat intersting here. It said: Use the menu to download Jirachi and add him to your team. In addition, doing so will also give you the Berry Update. Maybe this is just a simple error, they don't like using "it", or intentional. I want to add it, but I don't know where can I add it (Trivia?). --~~ThePokémonFanSince1995~~-- 04:45, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Not sure it's notable as it's likely an error. I refer to Diancie as "she", "her" all the time as it's been referenced as a princess, particularly in the movie starring it. However, in-game data shows it unidentified. CycloneGU (talk) 05:10, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
It is not notable enough because Jirachi isn't referred as "he" or "him" in any movie or anime. I don't know why Jirachi, Celebi, Mew, and Diancie can't have a gender in the games (except for Diancie in Pokémon Rumble World)... Just wanted to let everyone know about that. --~~ThePokémonFanSince1995~~-- 05:33, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Keep in mind that the Pokémon species article refers to the game data as gospel. Is it notable as trivia? I'm not sure. I don't think it's notable enough, but maybe it fits. CycloneGU (talk) 05:51, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Missing info

Hey there seems to be some information missing on this site. I just got a Jirachi with Draco Meteor, a move which isn't mentioned here. But since it got through GTS, it must be legal. It has ETE2010 as Original Trainer so it must be from some French event in 2010. I'm not good at editing so if someone reads this feel free to add this information. --N00bAtWork (talk) 21:08, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

That's the Summer 2010 Jirachi. We have the move on the Gen IV learnset, which is when when it was distributed. glikglak 22:23, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Ups, didn't realize that :) --N00bAtWork (talk) 22:31, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
