While this is a very creative way to take a couple Prizes, it seems to have way too many moving parts to be considered reliable.  It would be hard for anyone other than the developers to duplicate, especially needing 4 Missing Clover in one turn.

 

It still seems like some information is missing that could explain this, or determine if a bug actually exists.  Without part of the game log, is it safe to assume that nothing was blocking Abilities for your second attempt?  ...No Silent Lab Stadium or Alolan Muk?

 

When looking at this official ruling (below) for Jirachi Prism, it makes me wonder if your opponent might have had Sudowoodo out, limiting you to 4 on the Bench.  With Kartana GX, Magcargo, a couple Mr. Mime, and maybe something else, are you sure there was a bench space?  With everything going on with your side of the field, this might have been easy to overlook.

 

Q. What do I do with Jirachi {*}'s "Wish Upon a Star" Ability if my bench is full?
A. If you cannot put Jirachi {*} onto the bench, you just put it into your hand but do not draw another prize. (Celestial Storm FAQ; Aug 2, 2018 TPCi Rules Team)

 

I'm curious though, how are you selecting Jirachi Prism (specifically) from your prize cards?  Doesn't it have to be selected when face-down only?  You can't rely on something like Town Map, right?

4 clovers in one turn is just an easy way to take a prize card, and I used it for an easy to reproduce example. 

 

It's quite easy to get the cards you need with Sylvian's Magical Ribbon attack. You end up with plenty of time to recycle the combo when you hide behind that wall.

 

I wish I could get the game log, but the current client doesn't seem to be saving it for me.

 

To answer your question, when you place the Jirachi in your prize cards using Macargo/Mr Mime, you can select the location of the prize card. (I usually chosoe either the top left or the bottom right if it matters for reproduction purposes.) As their effect does not shuffle prize cards you know which prize to choose. 

I have confirmed that I only have 3 pokemon on my bench Macargo, Mr Mime, and Kartana GX when this occurs.

It isn't "saved," it is copied to the clipboard when you click the button to do so.

That's what made me think your bench spaces might have been full, especially if your opponent possibly had a Sudowoodo out.

 

From your "reproduction" example, you would have at least 2 Mr. Mime out (making 4 on the bench), because you're doing it the second time, right?  The new Mr. Mime only works one time, when you place it on the Bench.  And then if there was another Eevee or something?

 

BTW, I'm not doubting so much, as trying to see.

Thanks guys. I ran a quick test and was able to export the log with your help. In this case I stopped and exported the log after I grabbed the Jirachi the second time. I'm not able to upload the entire debug file here. If there is a way to do this, please let me know. At this point, I have Macargo and 2 Mr Mime cards on the bench with Sylveon-GX in the active.
