I will use Jirachi in-game and in wifi battles but I heard that Jirachi's signature move (Doom Desire) is not a good move. Is it true? Does Doom Desire get STAB?

(Feel free to comment a moveset)

When you play Wifi battles, what Pokemon, moves, or abilities are you not allowed to use?

Future Sight and Doom Desire are not good moves. This is because they deal damage in 2 turns, so your opponent is easily able to pivot around it.

Trick Room.... you mean Future Sight? XDXDXD
thanks ree
This is heavily format dependent. Future Sight is viable on Slowking in Past generations NU/RU. Doom Desire made a CAP Poke S Rank in CAP due to having a high special attack. They are only good if a Pokémon with an exceptionally high Special Attack and STAB can use it in a format. Just because Pokémon like this aren’t present doesn’t mean the moves themselves are bad. :P
