Shiny Celebi Special Research Availability
We’re excited to announce that the latest Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, is coming soon! In celebration of the upcoming release, beginning on Monday, December 14, 2020, Jessie and James will be returning to Pokémon GO, and you’ll be able to encounter Shiny Celebi by completing limited-time Special Research! You can also look forward to lots of other in-game content inspired by the movie!
There is no time limit to complete the Special Research “Distracted by Something Shiny” once it has been collected.
There will be a deadline for when you can obtain the Special Research story but once you obtain it, you can complete it at your own pace. Although it’s recommended you finish while Meowth Balloons are still around.
These Pokémon will be released in their shiny variant with the start of the event.
