For months, Pokémon GO players have been speculating that Celebi will be the next featured Pokémon in the special research tasks, following Mew. Today, Niantic has confirmed this news, as Celebi officially becomes available in the Pokémon GO special research tasks.
Celebi Pokémon GO Special Research Tasks
This however, isn’t the first time that Celebi has appeared in the game. The Pokemon Go Fest event in Chicago earlier this year treated players who attended a chance to get Celebi, also by completing a particular set of Pokémon GO special research tasks. This time around though, all players in the world will get a chance at capturing the Mythical Pokémon. For those who have already captured Celebi from the event, they will earn Celebi candies by completing the worldwide Pokémon GO special research tasks.
Just like with Mew’s tasks , players will also earn XP, items, and encounter new Pokémon as they complete Celebi’s Pokémon GO special research tasks. You may complete Special Research tasks on Celebi at your own pace, as long as you have done the third group of tasks related to the Special Research on Mew.
More Pokémon from the Johto region will also start appearing together with Celebi’s worldwide debut. New items will also start appearing in the shop including Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver Trainer avatar items, and a new Celebi shirt!
