Pokemon Go Fest 2018 Gameplay: Capturing the Legendary Celebi

See a Pokemon master go toe to toe with Celebi and add it to their collection. 


Pokemon Go Fest 2018 was more than just a celebration of all things Pokemon. It also featured a special event where you could capture the second-generation mythical Pokemon Celebi. Those who attended the event had the chance to capture Celebi rather than just being gifted it like last year's Lugia, and we have gameplay of one very talented trainer working to take a Celebi home.

Celebi is triggered by completing various research challenges assigned by researcher Professor Willow, as he asks players to investigate "unusual geological phenomena." After you complete the quests, you'll find Celebi and can square off against Celebi to add it to your collection.

There's a lot to do if you want to make this Pokemon yours, but it's all worth it in the end. You don't have to get out there and travel all the way to Chicago to see a capture in action, though. We've got it all here for you, so make sure you check it out above!
