Jirachi (Japanese: ジラーチ Jirachi) is a major character who appeared in Jirachi: Wish Maker.

In the movies

Max holds the rock containing Jirachi

In the movie, Jirachi was awakened for seven days from a mysterious rock while the Millennium Comet was nearby. Jirachi had been taken by Butler, who was hoping to use Jirachi's powers for his own gain. Butler's girlfriend Diane realized what he was doing, and informed Ash and his friends. They decided to bring Jirachi to its home of Forina.

Jirachi's Eye of Truth

Unfortunately, Butler followed them and got ahold of Jirachi. Using the Psychic Pokémon, he unwittingly created a Meta Groudon, which wrought havoc all over the forests of Forina. Fortunately, Jirachi was saved by Ash and then used its Doom Desire to obliterate Meta Groudon.

After the ordeal, Jirachi went back to sleep, and Ash and the others continued their journey. During its time awake, Jirachi grew attached to Max, and formed a special bond with him. It is believed that Max was the one who enabled Jirachi to awaken. He was sad to see Jirachi leave, but he knew that they would always remain friends.

Jirachi later appeared in a flashback in the opening sequence of Destiny Deoxys. It also briefly reappeared in a montage in The Rise of Darkrai, which chronicled the preceding nine movies.

Personality and characteristics

Jirachi is somewhat childlike, presumably because it is only awake for a week every 1,000 years, thereby limiting its personality and maturity development. It can be very bossy if no one wants to play with it. Jirachi gets along with Max the most, as the two were often seen playing together. Jirachi has the ability to absorb the energy from the Millennium Comet when the eye in the center of its stomach, known as its true eye, is open. It uses the energy to keep order and maintain the landscape of its home of Forina; however, it can also be used for nefarious purposes, as displayed by Butler and his creation of Meta Groudon.
