'''Jirachi''' (Japanese: '''ジラーチ''' ''Jirachi'') is a Steel and Psychic-type Pokémon known as the Wish Pokémon. It is said to able to grant any wishes written on the tags on its head once awake. It only wakes up for seven days once every thousand years. If in danger, it will fight without waking up.
Jirachi was introduced in {{pkmn|Ruby and Sapphire}} and succeeded Mew and Celebi as the cutea [[Psychic-type]], base 600 Mythical Pokémon. It was revealed in 2003 in the context of the sixth movie, [[M06|Jirachi: Wish Maker]], onin which it starred. It first became available in Japan to players who pre-ordered tickets to the movie, with other limited distribution events following throughout the year. Its distribution in the west was altered, as it was included in the [[Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disc]] in USA and in [[Pokémon Channel]] in Europe and Australia. Unlike its predecessors, Jirachi doesn'tdoes not have an extensive story or event in the core games, with its lore limited to a few indirect [[Mossdeep City|references]].
Jirachi is heavily connected to the real-world Japanese festival of {{wp|Tanabata}}, with several [[List of Tanabata event Pokémon|distributions]] occurring in celebration of the event.
