If you missed your chance way back in 2002-2003 to get a Jirachi, now it’s finally your chance. Jirachi is April’s legendary monthly Pokémon you can receive. It is known as the Wish Pokémon with the ability to bring any of your wishes to fruition. It’s the star of Jirachi: Wish Maker, the sixth full-length Pokémon film. In it, Ash and friends must help Jirachi stop a disturbing wish of bringing Groudon to life in order to destroy the land.
Jirachi is available via Nintendo Network using your game’s Mystery Gift feature. Only Pokémon X,Y, Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby are compatible. It is only available until April 24, then you may have to wait another decade or so. In addition to receiving Jirachi, there are a few products featuring the legend. At participating Toys R Us locations you can pick up a limited edition plush, Pokéball and figure, as well as a Pokémon TCG set.
