Part 3: Things You Should Know about Jirachi Pokémon GO

For the event, you need to do some Pokémon GO Thousand Year Slumber Research, to get more involved at what you are fighting for. Pokémon GO Jirachi is a dual steel and psychic type mythical Pokémon. Known as the "wish making" mythical Pokémon, which can't be traded, it comes with a CP of 3090, making it the second highest of all steel types in the game.


Jirachi Stats:

Having the highest hit points among all the Steel types, Jirachi does a fair amount of damage output to its opponents. It also is a challenging Rock and Ice counter. As a combination of steel and psychic type, Jirachi often has an interesting move pool. It can also be built in two ways - Double psychic moves and Hybrid Psychic and steel moves.

  • Type: Steel, Psychic
  • Attack points (ATK): 210
  • Defence (DEF): 210
  • Hit Points (HP): 200

(Notably the HP is Highest among all the Steel Type Pokémons)

All Jirachi Moves and Moveset in Pokémon GO

For Psychic moves, choosing a psychic is beneficial. Dazzling Gleam though powerful, is not beneficiary from STAB. Thus, while choosing Jirachi, the moves should be properly accessed. It also has the following moves -

  • Confusion (Psychic)
  • Charge Beam (electric)
  • Doom Desire (steel)
  • Psychic (psychic)
  • Dazzling Gleam (Fairy)

Jirachi Best Moveset – CONFUSION / DOOM DESIRE

The best quick move is Confusion. It deals with the most DPS and is benefitted from STAB.

And the best charge move is Doom Desire. It deals the most DPS and is considered as the most powerful move in Pokémon GO with 2 bar power.

What Counters Jirachi

Jirachi itself is a steel/psychic Pokémon. It is strong against Fighting, Poison, ice, rock, and fairy types. But, it is somewhat weak against Fire, Ground, Bug, Flying, Ghost and Dark moves.

Part 4: Tips to Catch More Jirachi in Pokémon GO without Effort

Though Pokémon GO is a popular game around the globe. Yet the only disadvantage is, it demands a lot of hard work. Like in order to catch Pokémon, one has to walk around with the phone in hand, which reportedly can often lead to accidents. So, what can be a way out? Like, is there any way, which could allow a player to roam around in his Pokémon GO map, without doing the 'actual' roaming?

The answer is YES!

If a trainer has an iPhone or an iPad, he can use a tiny little hack, or spoof tool, which will enable him to catch more Pokémons, including rare ones, just sitting on his couch. Even it is a workaround, it can make the Pokémon GO Thousand Year Slumber Quests more fun too. All he/she needs to do is, download an application called “iMyFone AnyTo” from the software’s official website. This application let's its users change the location 'real time' to anywhere and anytime as per their convenience.
