Shiny Celebi is being distributed in Pokémon Sword & Shield to celebrate the release of the Jungle Movie. Here is how players can claim it.
Shiny Celebi is finally making its way over to Pokemon Sword & Shield. This mythical Pokemon is amongst one of the rarest to exist in the series. Originally making its debut in Pokemon Gold and Silver, players were only able to obtain Celebi through a special event that unlocked the GS Ball item. It has appeared in multiple mainline titles since then, but its Shiny form has been reserved strictly for Pokemon Go, until now.
This event is finally happening to celebrate the release of the newest Pokemon movie, Secrets of the Jungle. This film is finally getting its English dub for a Netflix release this upcoming October. The film features the Forest of Okoya, a Pokemon paradise that is forbidden to outsiders. Koko, a human boy who was raised by the Mythical Pokemon, Zarude finally meets his first human with an encounter with series veteran, Ash Ketchum. This film is the introduction of Zarude in the Pokemon series. The film also features a Shiny Celebi that acts as the guardian of the forest.
To celebrate the release of the film, players will be able to claim this Shiny Celebi for their own. The Celebi itself will be level 60 with the ability Natural Cure and the moves Magical Leaf, Future Sight, Life Dew, and Heal Ball. Here’s how players can claim this legendary Pokemon.
