Jirachi cannot be caught in the wild in "Pok��mon Emerald," and aside from trading with another player, the only means of obtaining him is to transfer him in from "Pok��mon Ruby" or "Sapphire." Transferring requires the use of a Gamecube game, though which game is required differs depending on whether you are in the United States or Europe. At a minimum, players need a copy of "Emerald," a copy of "Ruby" or "Sapphire," two Game Boy Advances, a Nintendo Gamecube, a Game Boy Advance link cable and a Gamecube-to-Gameboy Advance connector cable.Continue Reading
Players in the United States will need the "Pok��mon Colosseum Bonus Disc." This disc was only made available as a pre-order bonus for "Pok��mon Colosseum," but can be purchased second-hand through sites such as eBay and Amazon. Players in Europe and Australia will have an easier time, as they need only the "Pok��mon Channel" game.
"Pok��mon Colosseum Bonus Disc" allows you to simply download Jirachi directly to "Ruby" or "Sapphire" by way of the connector cable. "Pok��mon Channel" requires you to first unlock the full version of "The Pichu Brothers in Party Panic," which is done simply by watching all of the episodes. Jirachi will then be available for direct download to "Ruby" or "Sapphire."
This can be done at the Link Corner in "Ruby" or "Sapphire," but will require a Game Boy Advance link cable, as the wireless adapter was not included with the system when "Ruby" and "Sapphire" were originally released.
