PokeNews: Jirachi Distribution

This event is expired, but feel free to read this post anyway! Also check the bottom of the post for information about future Pokemon 20 Legendary Distribution Events! Check back on the first of each month for information about the newest Pokemon 2016 Legendary Distribution Event Pokemon!

Here we are again with another PokeNews report! We are now three months into the Pokemon 20th Anniversary Legendary Pokemon Release Event! We’ve seen a host of Pokemon announcements and goodies from Nintendo since February, from the announcement of Moon and Sun to the release of Pokken Tournament! We’ve got two legendary Pokemon under our belts already, but it’s time to spring forward and into the Advanced Generation of Pokemon games, with April’s Jirachi release!


Jirachi, the Wish Pokemon, is a steel/psychic type from Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. Jirachi hibernate for a thousand years, during this time it is said that any wish written on the notes attached to its head will be granted once it awakens. Jirachi is also the only Pokemon capable of learning Doom Desire, which is its signature move. Like Mew and Celebi before it Jirachi had its own movie, Jirachi: Wish Makerthe one with the pretty lullaby.

Jirachi has been released before in two seperate Ruby and Sappire Events, so this will be the first time Jirachi will be available outside of its original games. I had one as a child, but that was only because I owned an Action Replay. So if you missed your chance to get Jirachi from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

The Jirachi Event will be a Nintendo WiFi Distribution and will take place between April 1st to 24th 2016. In order to obtain Jirachi, players must have a 3DS or New 3DS, and Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire.

The event Jirachi will be lv. 100 and have the Ability: Serene Grace, it will also come loaded with the moveset Wish, Confusion, and Rest.

  1. I got my beloved Mew, so I’m happy! 🙂

    But since I sometimes play with a Rain team online, I guess I’m most looking forward to Manaphy and Keldeo.

    1. You play online? 0.o I was never very good at competitive play (too much work for me). I think it’s awesome that you can play competitively!

      I missed out on just about all of the legendary events in the past… but I guess i’m especially looking forward to finally completing my pokedex, since the legendaries are all that i’m missing now.

      1. Well, nothing major. No tournaments or anything, just for fun. It’s too addicting, so I don’t do it often. ^^

        Good luck finishing your Pokedex!

Gush about cute otome boys~
