Official Pokémon GO artwork for the new Celebi T-shirt avatar item on male and female Trainers

The Mythical Pokémon Celebi has officially become available globally via Special Research in Pokémon GO as of 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. As part of the ongoing Johto Festival 2018 event, more Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region now have increased appearances throughout the game until August 28 at 1 p.m. PDT.

Plus, Field Research relating to Pokémon discovered in the Johto region has become 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 (Bronze, Silver or Gold). In addition, three new boxes are now available for purchase via the in-game shop:
