Celebi quests revealed and new outfits available for Pokémon GO

You can begin the quests for Celebi right now!

Long-time Pokémon GO Dataminer Chrales has revealed all the new research quests required to unlock Celebi in the game. These have just gone live as well, alongside the Johto event which makes generation two (Johto) Pokémon more common. This latter effect is expected to last a week.

While maybe not as hard as earning 400 Magikarp Candy, quests have minimum time limits on them – e.g. “Catch a Pokémon 3 Days in a row”. Therefore you shouldn’t expect to get Celebi ASAP. The quests are as follows (numbers not yet known):
