Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why is Jirachi in the ORAS Hoenn pokedex if you can`t even find it in ORAS?

It seems quite irrational in ORAS to have a Pokemon in the Reigon pokedex that you can't even find anywhere in the game legitimately, and getting a Jirachi via trade is practically possible since most people keep their Jirachi's stashed away in their PC's, and the people who do throw them on the GTS want something along the lines of Mew, Darkrai, Meloetta, Keldeo, Manaphy, or Arceus.

Personally, I consider those kinds of people to be "stupid" and "annoying" for asking for something that is impossible to get or "looping" for the same thing or something similar  (example:  Darkrai -for- Celebi  -->  Celebi -for- Darkrai  -  or  -  Shaymin -for- higher/lower level - Shaymin, etc.).  I'm not trying to troll anyone; just stating my honest opinion.  though I should stop talking (/typing?) before I get myself into trouble or start rage talking.
I'm also trying to get a Jirachi but the GTS is really frustrating. Just about everyone is trading for the mews, arceuses, etc. even if they're only offering magikarps or zigzagoons. I can never get any decent trades :(

It is just because Jirachi is a Hoenn Pokemon. Every game since the start has done this, anyway, so it's not like its a new thing. Mew, Celebi, Diancie, Victini, etc., are not obtainable through regular gameplay in any of their respective games, but are still included in the local pokedex.

I really hope they release an event for Jirachi.
The only possible way I can think of getting a Jirachi without having to go through trade shenanigans would be to have the Jirachi from the Pokemon Colosseum bonus disk (that's where I got mine).
I have a shiny Jirachi up 4 trade in X
Besides white and black, or was that an event item that allowed you to go to the island
there were no event Pokemon on the D/P/Pt pokedexes even though gen 4 introduced the most event Pokemon of any generation.
