Jirachi is a dominant force in 1v1. Jirachi's above-average bulk coupled with a great defensive typing in Steel / Psychic gives it a place as one of the most fearsome attackers, handling top-tier threats like Galarian Darmanitan, Mimikyu, Sylveon, and Dracovish. This set mainly functions as a simple offensive attacker, using its ability Serene Grace to efficiently wear down foes such as Galarian Darmanitan, Sylveon, and Crustle via the help of Iron Head's high flinching rate. Access to Trick allows it to cripple bulkier Pokemon like Galarian Corsola and Corviknight and easily defeat them. Fire Punch lets Jirachi deal super effective damage to Steel-types like Ferrothorn and opposing Jirachi,(AC) which would otherwise completely wall it. Moonblast, when boosted with Serene Grace, lets it deal with Hydreigon and other Dragon-types like Kommo-o and Dracovish. Zen Headbutt is an alternative to Moonblast, hitting Poison- and Fighting-types like Toxtricity and Keldeo. The EVs on this set are tailored to live Choice item-boosted attacks from common Pokemon such as Sawk, Haxorus, Keldeo, and bulky Galarian Weezing while also taking two Shadow Sneaks from Choice Band Mimikyu.

Primarina is an fantastic teammate for its ability to handle Fire- and Dark-types like Incineroar and Hydreigon and bulky Steel-types like Aegislash. In return, Jirachi covers other Fairy- and Steel-types like Mimikyu and Ferrothorn while also handling Galarian Darmanitan. Pokemon like Dragapult, Mimikyu, and Incineroar make good partners due to them being able to take on Psychic-types like opposing Jirachi and Celebi. Jirachi can handle Dragon-types that they both struggle against like Haban Berry Goodra and Haban Berry Kyurem. Jirachi hates Dark-types that utilize Sucker Punch strategies like Grimmsnarl and Bisharp, so having Pokemon that can counter these like Primarina, Choice Band Mimikyu, and Arcanine is suggested.

This set mainly functions as a simple offensive attacker using its ability Serene Grace to efficiently wear down foes via the help of Iron Head's high flinching rate to handle numerous foes such as Sylveon, Crustle, Sawk, and Haxorus you would be using Moonblast against these, replace with Darm-G. The access to Trick in its movepool, allows it to cripple bulkier Pokemon and easily defeat them, like Galarian Corsola and Corviknight. Fire Punch lets Jirachi deal super effective damage to Steel-types which would otherwise completely wall it like Ferrothorn and opposing Jirachi.

Primarina is a fantastic teammate for Jirachi; its ability to handle Fire-, bulky Steel- and Dark-types like Incineroar, Aegislash, and Hydreigon makes it a valuable partner. In return, Jirachi covers other Fairy- and Steel-types like Mimikyu and Ferrothorn, while also handling Galarian Darmanitan.

Jirachi can handle Dragon-types that they both struggle against like Haban Berry Goodra and Haban Berry Kyurem. Jirachi hates Dark-types that utilize Sucker Punch strategies like Grimmsnarl and Bisharp so having Pokemon that can counter these like the aforementioned Primarina, Choice Band Mimikyu, and Arcanine work well.
