Well, Jirachi is faster than Metagross. However, there are things in both of their favor.

Metagross: With the powerful Meteor Mash attck, Metagross is a force to be reckoned with, especially when taking into acount the high attack stat. It can also know the powerful Earthquake attack. Lower Speed is not that much of a problem with Metagross, it has Agility and Bullet Punch. It also has a higher defense stat than Jirachi. Clear Body is also a useful ability.

Jirachi: Serene Grace is a great ability, doubling the chance of a secondary effect, which can work very well with Thunder. Doom Desire is a powerful move, although I think Meteor Mash is better.

My opinion is that Metagross is a better Pokemon, and with Bullet Punch or Agility (Metagross has the defensive stats to set this up, and Clear Body makes it so that the foe is hard-pressed to get rid of it) it can be made to fit your battle style.

I'l go with Metagross too. As long as it knows meteor mash its safe to go to the elite 4 if you ask me.
