Pokemon Go's Celebi Special Research is Now Live

Get started and get a chance to encounter the legendary Pokemon.

Pokémon Go's Celebi Special Research is now live for players looking to catch the legendary Psychic-type Pokémon in Niantic's hit AR mobile game.

The Celebi Special Research is a set of tasks you must help complete on behalf of Professor Willow. Once complete, you'll earn a chance to encounter the legendary Pokémon Celebi. If you happen to have caught Celebi during the Pokémon Go Fan Fest this year, then you'll unlock bounties to help level up your Celebi.

To do the Celebi quest you'll need to have completed the third group of tasks in the Mew Special Research. As an added bonus to Celebi's appearance, Pokemon from the Johto region are now more common in Pokewmon Go, and Field Research for Johto region Pokémon will also become available.

What's more, you can get a free Celebi T-shirt today in the Style Shop as a way to celebrate the legendary Pokémon. Avatar items from Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver are also available now and more items will unlock as you progress your Johto medal collection.
