PSA: Celebi is now available for Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire for a limited time

Legendary Pokemon #251 from the Pokemon Gold/Silver generation is available now in the current generation of Pokemon games, as part of the series' continuing 20th anniversary celebration.


As Pokemon continues celebrating its 20th anniversary, the news of the weekend was the release of the original Pokemon games: Red, Blue, and Yellow. But the current generation of Pokemon games are still going strong and to continue the anniversary celebration, Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire owners can pick up the mythical Pokemon Celebi right now.

For those that aren't familiar, Celebi is the legendary Grass/Psychic-type Pokemon of the Gold/Silver generation, normally obtainable only via special circumstances. Its Natural Cure ability is a valuable one, as it heals any status condition inflicted whenever it switches out. The 20th anniversary would seem to fit that bill, so anyone looking to pick it up should boot up their copy of X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire and open up the Mystery Gift menu. Opt to connect via Internet and download your Celebi. It'll be waiting at the nearest Pokemon Center. No word on how long Celebi will be available, but don't expect it to be around forever. Thanks to for the heads-up.

This giveaway comes weeks after Mew made its way into GameStop. There's a whole new Pokemon generation coming later this year with Sun and Moon, so stay tuned to see if anymore mythical Pokemon come out of the woodwork prior to their arrival.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
