Here is what’s discovered in the GM File for the Special Research Jirachi:

GO Fest 2019 — Chicago (1/5)

  • Professor: Welcome to GO Fest 2019.%PLAYERNAME%. I’m glad you’re here.
  • Professor: I discovered something fascinating during my research, and I need your help. I’ve come across what I believe to be a rare Pokemon deep in slumber.
  • Professor: We have our work cut out for us %PLAYERNAME%. I think this adventure is going to call for some resources and even the help of some friends.
  • Professor: Could you collect some supplies? Meanwhile, I’ll see if I can find anything about this Pokemon in any of my texts.

GO Fest 2019 — Chicago (2/5)

  • Professor: Good work, %PLAYERNAME%. I’m sure the resources you’ve earned will be crucial.
  • Professor: I had some success in my research, as well. I came across an ancient text containing the story of a Mythical Pokemon that grants wishes.
  • Professor: I’m still researching the best way to awaken this Pokemon, but I keep hearing reports of other Pokemon in the area showing signs of distress.
  • Professor: Could I ask you to investigate these reports?

GO Fest 2019 — Chicago (3/5)

  • Professor: Well done, %PLAYERNAME%! I knew I could count on you. You know, something interesting came up when I reviewed your results.
  • Professor: Many of the Pokemon you encountered seem to have strayed from their habitats.
  • Professor: I’d like you to help them get back to their proper habitats, as I’m sure this will soothe them and make them more comfortable. This should be a breeze for an accomplished Trainer like you!
  • Professor: As you return the Pokemon to their proper habitats, be sure to snap pictures to help document this unusual situation.

GO Fest 2019 — Chicago (4/5)

  • Professor: Wonderful work, %1’L o1 J L A, You’re certainly getting the hang of that camera! Did you notice anything strange while taking photos of Pokemon in their habitats?
  • Professor: Apparently there’s an unusual phenomenon where Pokemon leap out in an attempt to appear in your photos. I’ve heard Spark refer to it as a “photobomb.”
  • Professor: I’m eternally amused—and amazed—by the things we learn about Pokemon every day. That said, I did notice a connection.
  • Professor: These Pokemon all seem to have something in common—music! I have a hunch that music may be the key to awakening our slumbering Pokemon.
  • Professor: What do you think, %PLAYERNAME%? Shall we set the stage and see if some beautiful music is the answer to this perplexing situation?

GO Fest 2019 – Chicago (5/5)

  • Professor: That’s it! The pure melody created by your musical Pokemon has awakened the Steel- and Psychic-type Pokemon Jirachi!
  • Professor: The ancient text was right—this Mythical Pokemon could only be awakened from its thousand-year slumber by a song of purity. The text also says that when Jirachi awakens, it grants wishes!
  • Professor: Now that we’ve done the work of waking Jirachi up, I wonder what you and your fellow Trainers will wish for. I already know what my wish is going to be—I want you to enjoy this amazing experience!
  • Professor: It isn’t every day that you get to join Trainers from all over the world in exploring a park with so many Pokemon in such diverse habitats—not to mention meeting a Mythical Pokemon!
  • Professor: I’m sure Jirachi was far from the last amazing discovery to be made, though. I’ll no doubt be calling on your excellent research skills again in the future!

It’s unclear if Celebi will be available worldwide, but those who will attend this year’s PoGo Fest in Chicago will most certainly have a chance to catch Jirachi. Most likely Jirachi will go live worldwide after the three GoFest events 2019 – pretty much September or later.

For last, there will be a Global Challenge, but that’s all we know for now.

More info to follow, so stay tuned!

Hi, gamers! You can call me Mr. DComplex. I'm a gamer, a hardcore gamer. My favorite genres are Action RPG and MMORPG. At the moment I'm using my PC as my only gaming platform, but soon I might get a new PS4 from Angel. Update - Angel did get me a PS4, oh wait, it's the PS4 PRO 1TB!!! Much love bro!


  1. The 100 km trade is going to be by far the most difficult task ever. That means you need to trade far from Go Fest to accomplish. Hopefully this isn’t the case.

    1. not so, people will be coming from all over, 100KM is nothing. Make a new friend trade a mon that is already registered for 100 dust and, viola, done!

    1. This site is usually honest. Unless we can trade with far away friends at the event, getting Jirachi may be impossible.

  2. I have a ton of babies that I’ve hatched and saved from all over the world. I’ll be there Thursday and wouldn’t mind trading them to help anyone out. I’d actually be thankful to get rid of some and to clear up that much more room.

  3. Oh! Keep in mind most of the players there actually live more than 100 km away! Just have someone trade you trash from their hometown with trash from your hometown or Chicago!
