No Story Missions take place in this Dungeon.
Remember that your Pokemon's levels will be reduced to Lv. 5 upon entering Wish Cave. This means that they would not know their usual moves. How you can prepare for this dungeon is to bring Pokemon that have good initial moves, fitting abilities and specific Rare Qualities.
It is a must for players to enter Wish Cave to strategize the items they will bring into the dungeon. It is a 99F dungeon and a big chunk of your success will rely on how well prepared you are.
|Reviver Seed x 5||Escape Orb||Max Elixir x 10||Big Apple x 4||Silver Spike x 30|
These are all in addition to the always needed Apples, Oran Berries and Tiny Reviver Seeds
WIsh Cave is a 99F dungeon so you should strategize on which items you will bring. These are our recommendations.
Notable Held Items

A Silver Spike being thrown by an enemy Pokemon
Be careful when using projectiles as Pokemon in Wish Cave have the ability to use them against you. Most Pokemon can also catch the thrown projectiles at them. This gives them the chance to throw it back to you. This makes the use of projectiles discouraged.
Masquerain is good because of its initial characteristics
Scizor is good because of its initial characteristics
Any Pokemon that has good starting moves and abilities will perform well in this dungeon.
Most of the time, you will want to avoid fighting in order to preserve your time and resources. Moves like Agility and Rock Polish can help you in escaping Pokemon since they would not be able to keep up with you.
At this point, you should have a full party of Pokemon with you. The Jirachi boss fight is not really special. Just treat it as a normal boss fight. Just use Oran Berries if it damages your Pokemon and make sure every Pokemon is able to damage it with the use of thrown items such as the mentioned Silver Spike.
Because of positioning, every Pokemon is able to attack Jirachi either through moves or Silver Spikes.
Flygon can increase its Speed using Dragon Dance and decrease your party's Sp. Def using Earth Power
Scizor's Technician Bulet Punch can easily knock your Pokemon out.
Claydol's stats can quickly stack up using Cosmic Power so eliminate him as soon as possible.
Metagross can use Magnet Rise to make Ground moves useless. His raw offensive power is also very high so be wary.
Do not worry too much about levelling up in Wish Cave, you will get the appropriate amount of experience as you go. Prioritize getting items for your dungeon run.
For the first 20 floors, the Pokemon are not that strong so you will have an easy time going through those floors.
Parts of the map that have so many items are most probably Monster Houses. You can trigger Monster Houses so that you will get both items and EXP points.
Medicham is more powerful compared to the other Pokemon in these floors. Its Atk. is high and its HP stat is over 100. It can also pick up projectiles giving it the ability to damage you from long range.
Meditite on the other hand has Superpower which is both strong and can lower your stats.
Electabuzz deals high damage and Manectric has high HP and can deal damage to you if you do not take it outt early. Try to take them out from range so you do not take that much damage.
Be careful as both of them has Magnitude and Earth Power which are room-wide moves. Your Pokemon can get wiped out early.
Many Pokemon with Sludge Bomb appear here! Try to run away from them so you avoid getting the Poisoned status condition.
At this point, you already have enough levels, Pokemon and resources to deal with Jirachi. The Pokemon here are also from Sky Tower. These are very strong Pokemon that can deplete your resources quickly if you choose to face all of them.
It is smarter to preserve your resources for the fight against Jirachi. Prioritize getting to the next floors rather than trying to attempt a last minute EXP haul for your Pokemon.
