Jirachi has been available in Pokemon GO since 2019, but only for the wider player base via the Special Research story, A Thousand-Year Slumber.

However, that was only Jirachi in its normal form. Now, the Shiny version of the Wish Pokemon will be available as well. Here is everything you need to know on how to get your own with the Shiny Jirachi debut.

How do you get Shiny Jirachi?

In Pokemon GO, you will be able to get Shiny Jirachi from Monday, 20 February 2023. To get Shiny Jirachi, you need to buy and complete the Masterwork Research story - the tickets for which will be available to purchase at the in-game shop for $4.99 or your local currency's equivalent.

Along with "an opportunity to take on difficult challenges and daunting tasks", as specified on the Pokemon GO site, participating players are guaranteed to encounter Shiny Jirachi.

Tickets will only be available to buy from Monday, 20 February 2023 at 10AM PST to Monday, 20 March 2023 at 10AM PST. However, after you've bought the ticket, you'll have unlimited time to complete the Special Research and get your Shiny Jirachi.

So, don't worry about any deadlines after you've bought your Shiny Jirachi ticket.
