==General== *Average stats all round *Many resistances *Very good ability and many moves that benefit from it ==Choice Scarf== Jirachi @ Choice Scarf Trait: Serene Grace EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Jolly/Adamant Nature (+Spd/Atk, -SAtk) - Iron Head - Fire Punch - Ice Punch - Zen Headbutt/Trick/ThunderPunch/Drain Punch *Can flinch the opponent multiple consecutive times with its main STAB move. *Fire Punch hits Steel types that resist Iron Head. *Ice Punch is for Garchomp and other Ground types. *Zen Headbutt is another STAB flinching move, however is inaccurate. *Trick is for opponents with defensive Pokémon such as Sableye, Whimsicott and Shuckle. *ThunderPunch hits Water types such as Keldeo and Suicune *Drain Punch is for Dark types and heals you, however has poor coverage with other moves and does not have a secondary effect. ==ParaFlinch== Jirachi @ Air Balloon Trait: Serene Grace EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Thunder Wave/Body Slam - Ice Punch - Fire Punch - Iron Head *A more defensive set to the previous one which takes advantage of Jirachi's decent defenses. *Body Slam has a 60% chance of paralysing the target, making them move last if they don't have priority (most of the time) and sometimes preventing them moving. *Thunder Wave has a 100% chance of paralysis, but doesn't break Focus Sashes. It hits Ghost types, but not Ground types. *Iron Head has a 70% chance of stopping the opponent moving if they are paralysed, which is more than the 60% chance with a Scarf. *Ice Punch hits Garchomp and other Ground types super effectively, possibly KOing of freezing them when they break your Air Balloon on the first hit. *Fire Punch is for Steels such as Genesect and Scizor. ==Other Options== *King's Rock can be used to increase flinch chance by an extra 20%, however the other items are generally more useful. - ==Checks & Counters== *Blaziken and Garchomp can outspeed and KO with Flare Blitz or Earthquake. *Water and Fire types such as Keldeo, Suicune and Arcanine can take most hits, unless Jirachi has Zen Heatbutt against Keldeo.
