GBA #4: Can't Sleep (Part 1) pg. 8

Remember when I said Jordan was a wrestling nerd waaaay back in Out of Mind? Yeah. The Shooting Star Press is really hard to illustrate.

Now even though this is a dream sequence this is something Jordan does in matches. Unlike Flying Press, which is a real Pokemon move (unique for being both Flying and Fighting), this is something Jordan's improvising so it's officially typeless (like Struggle or Shadow moves). It's mostly for flair, and most of the damage comes from Jordan (who is actually really heavy due to being a Rock type) landing on his target. It doesn't work as well on people who are more impact-resistant.
