After defeating two Team Galactic members in Jubliffe City, you will start to head north to Floaroma Town in the hopes of eventually reaching Eterna City. However, Team Galactic is causing trouble, so you will need to thwart their plans in Floaroma first. Before you tackle your mission, head to the left of the Pokémon Center and speak to one of the old people. Speaking to the old man will allow you to get Jirachi, but only if you’ve played Pokémon Sword and Shield.
