The Mythical Pokémon Celebi will become available globally via Special Research in Pokémon GO on Monday, August 20. You can gain XP by completing Special Research on the iconic Time Travel Pokémon at any time as long as you have done the third group of tasks related to the Special Research on Mew. For those who have already completed the exclusive Pokémon GO Fest Special Research and have obtained Celebi, completing this new Special Research will earn you a new bounty of Candy to power up your Celebi.
More Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region will also have increased appearances throughout the game. Plus, Field Research relating to Pokémon discovered in the Johto region will be available throughout this special time. A new Celebi T-shirt is now available for free in the Style Shop. Plus, Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver Trainer avatar items are also available in the Style Shop, featuring outfits that unlock according to your Johto medal progress.
