The Jirachi quest is, with the Heatran quest, currently the only quest which requires a region specific play time requirement (120 Hours). Other than a usual hour requirement, the hours needed for this quest will be counted from the specific beginning time of the Hoenn region. This time can be checked by Professor Birch in his lab in Littleroot Town after the story part of this region is finished.
Accomplishment of the dex requirements
In order to move forward at the Jirachi quest, you need the owned data of all all possible Kanto, Johto, Hoenn Pokemon (Including Mew and Celebi, seen data only for other legendaries) on your Pokédex. You also need at least 210 different evolution's in your Pokédex.. Spawns for all Pokémon can be found at their specific pages.
More specific information regarding owned and evolved Pokémon and their mechanic regarding the Dex can be found at the Pokédex page.
Jirachi and Castform's seen data
The quest starts in the Player's House with Jirachi's seen data. Once you have beaten the Hoenn Elite Four you will have the option to get Jirachi's seen data at the second floor of the Players House located in Littleroot Town. A interaction with the Jirachi will set the seen data in your Pokédex. Depending when you do the quest, you may already have Jirachi's seen data when you started the Hoenn region. If you don't see Jirachi on its specific spot, check out your Pokédex and see it you have the data. If yes, you can continue.
The next step is to get Castform's seen data. For that, you have to fight a nameless scientist located in the Weather Institute at Route 119A. The Scientest can only be fought once but the seen data gets saved in anyway, win or lose.
All NPCs cool down after 7 days unless noted contrariwise.
Latios and Latias
Firstly, to be able to fight Latios and Latias, in order to get the seen data of them, you have to interact with the TV in the Players House in Little Root Town. That will result in a dialogue which shows you that the Red Pokémon is still roaming around - Latias.
Before you start hunting for the seen data, you should visit Professor Birch located in is Lab, also in Littleroot Town. Birch will unlock the Moon for you, in case you haven't yet. You can now travel to the Moon with a fee of §15,000 at any time.
After this small stopover, you can go for the seen data of Latias now. However, it can be at ten possible locations.
- Starting Truck located in Littleroot town.
- Route 103 on the water.
- New Mauville in the upper right corner of the building.
- Weather Institute second floor.
- Mt. Chimney at the reactor located north western.
- Meteor Falls B1F 2R
- Mt.Pyre Exterior
- Lilycove Department Store on the roof top.
- Abandoned Ship
- Hoenn Safari Zone 2 House.
Once you have found the right location, interact with it. Latias will evolve into Mega Latias and a battle starts. Mega Latias has a level around 100-120. Even if mega evolved, you will get the seen data of Latias once you started the fight, if you win or lose does not matter regarding the Pokédex data. When the battle is over, you have to go back to the Starter House again and have to interact with the TV. Now a Blue Pokémon is roaming around - Latios. Latios also has ten possible locations same as Latias had.
- Petalburg Maze in north eastern direction.
- Devon Corporation 3rd floor.
- Granite Cave.
- Route 124 Underwater
- Route 123 at the lake.
- Shoal Cave in the ice room at low tide.
- Mossdeep Gym
- Sky Pillar 5th floor.
- Victory Road Hoenn
- Route 134, hidden behinde a rock.
Same as with Latias here, once you interacted with it, it will mega evolve into Mega Latios and a battle will start. The seen data will be from Latios.
The three Regis and Rayquaza
The next goal is to get the seen data of the three Regis - Regice, Registeel and Regirock, which are located in their caves. As usual, the seen data will be obtained with a battle against the Pokémon.
- Route 105 - West path.
Archi and Maxie
To battle against this bosses, it is required to have 6 level 100 Pokémon in your party. Both bosses Pokémon are level 120. This battles are also one time fights. The seen data of the Pokémon should be obtained once you started the battle. To conclude, it does not matter if you win or lose regarding the seen data. However, you wont have a chance to get the extra rewards in case you lose which are a Carvanha from Archi and a Numel from Maxie.
Now you can finally aim for Jirachi and catch it. The Moon should be unlocked now as it was suggested to unlock in the Latios and Latias part. If not done, you can do it now too.
Jirachi is located on the Moon. To get on the Moon, you have to travel to Mossdeep City, enter the Space Center and talk to the older man at the second floor, which will give you the option to travel to the Moon for $15,000.
Once reached the Moon, you have to pass some caves in order to reach the shiny stone on a hill. The way is the same as for Deoxys in the past. Interacting with the shiny stone will teleport you to the Wish Room with Jirachi in the middle of it. Interacting with Jirachi will result in a fight and the chance to catch it. In case Jirachi was not successfully caught, you have the chance to catch it again by beating Nikola.
