Jirachi @ Choice Specs

EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

- Moonblast
- Psychic
- Thunderbolt
- Trick / U-turn

Choice Specs Jirachi has been on the rise on Steel teams thanks to its wallbreaking power. Jirachi's STAB and coverage moves allow it to take on various Pokemon such as Toxapex and Keldeo with Psychic, Hydreigon and Dracovish with Moonblast, and Azumarill and Pelipper with Thunderbolt. Trick allows Jirachi to cripple defensive Pokemon such as Chansey. However, when Jirachi loses its Choice Specs it's significantly less powerful. U-turn should be used when you predict a foe that a teammate could better handle might come in, such as Diggersby. Choice Specs Jirachi should be used to take out walls such as Mandibuzz on Dark teams, allowing teammates such as Cobalion to clean. Jirachi appreciates Corviknight and Ferrothorn's defensive utility, as the former is immune to Ground-type moves and the latter is a Water-resistant Pokemon that can set Spikes. Choice Scarf Cobalion is capable of revenge, killing threats such as Choice Scarf Excadrill, Urshifu-S, and Volcarona after a Quiver Dance.

- would rework the first sentence. i would definetly like you to work moonblast into the first sentence. i dont think it would be used without that move.
- overall i feel like this is written like an analysis, to change this. i would focus on its coverage in like one sentence and explain its role on steel teams a bit more

do this and i will qc it!

Choice Specs Jirachi has been on the rise on Steel-type teams thanks to its wallbreaking power, Psychic-typing allowing Jirachi to greatly help in the Poison- and Fighting-type matchup and has good coverage options like Moonblast that greatly helps with major threats to Steel-type teams like Hydregion and Choice Band Dracovish and can use Thunderbolt for Water-types like Azumarill and Peliper.
- couple of things here. list examples for the poison and fighting types maybe like keldeo. also seperate this into different sentences. 1 choice specs. 2 psychic. 3 moonblast. 4 tbolt, the way you structured it rn is awkward to read

Trick is another option for Jirachi to shut down bulky walls like Chansey and Gastrodon and set up sweepers like Bewear and Togekiss.
Jirachi can use U-turn as a way to gain momentum for the team on a predicted switch to get a teammate in safely to take care of Pokemon that threaten Jirachi like Urshifu-S, Salazzle, and Choice Scarf Excadrill. (i dont like urshifu or salazzle as uturn targets as they are vulnerable to jirachis coverage/stab) Trick is another option for Jirachi to shut down bulky walls like Chansey and Gastrodon and set up sweepers like Bewear and Togekiss. (reordered to match the set.) -'add a usage tip about how to use jirachi here'. Jirachi 'appreciates Corviknight' (these 2 words were misspelled) for it being able to come in on Ground-type attacks from Excadrill and Seismitoad. (also mention corviknights ability to defog away hazards for jirachi.) Ferrothorn is a great partner to set up Stealth Rock to help Jirachi get KOs easier and use Leech Seed to help it get some recovery. (mention spikes as well.) Choice Scarf Cobailon is good to help with threats to Jirachi such as Urshifu-S and Bisharp.
