Celebi (セレビィ Serebyi) is a Psychic/Grass-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Celebi is small, angular Pokémon with short arms and stubby rounded feet. Its cranium is shaped similarly to a flower bulb, extended upward in a left stroke. Celebi's blue eyes are rather large, compensating most of its face. Also extending from its head are two small string-like antennae with blue tips. They seem to curl in a different direction most of the time. The larger space of its back is covered with two, white moth-like wings, short and small extending only halfway up its arm length. Celebi's head is similar to an onion.

Evolution

Celebi does not evolve.

A pink Celebi joins the players group in the world of the future, in the last dungeon before returning to the past. She has an unusual personality, and is an old friend of Grovyle, helping him go to the past twice. In the game, it is hinted that she may have feelings for Grovyle.

Anime

Pokémon 4Ever

Celebi M13

Celebi in the anime

In the Pokémon movie Pokémon 4Ever, it is the star/main Pokémon, along with Suicune. It inadvertently takes Sam from the past while trying to flee from a bounty hunter only to end up in the sights of a more sinister hunter.

Zoroark: Master of Illusions

Celebi also played a role in the 13th movie as Zorua's friend.

Other Appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Celebi reappears as a Poké Ball Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. Melee. When a Poké Ball is thrown, there is a 1 in 251 chance of Celebi appearing after all these requirements have been fulfilled:

  • Unlock all 25 characters
  • Unlock all 29 stages
  • Beat all 51 events
  • Unlock the score display (by reaching 5000 KOs)

It does not affect the battle, but the thrower of the Poké Ball will earn a bonus and trophy of Celebi.

Trophy Description

"Celebi has the power to travel through time, and thus wanders from one age to the next. It is considered a deity by the forests: plants and trees are said to grow in unimaginable abundance wherever Celebi visits. Like Mew, Celebi is a Pokémon shrouded in mystery. Its special techniques blend grass and psychic powers."

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Celebi reprises its role as a Poké Ball Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When a Poké Ball is thrown, there is a 1 in 493 chance of Celebi appearing. Like the other "secret" Pokémon, it drops collectible items; in Celebi's case, it drops trophies.

Trophy Description

"A Time Travel Pokémon. Celebi can travel throughout time and inhabit multiple places simultaneously. It is said that it appears only during times of peace, greeted by a flourishing of grass and trees. Two turns after Celebi uses its Future Sight move, the foe is bombarded with psychic energy. This proves to have a devastating impact on any Pokémon."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Celebi only appears as a trophy this time in Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS.

Trophy Description

This Pokémon has the unique ability to travel through time to the past or future. However, the only times Celebi wants to visit are those of peace, so catching sight of Celebi in one of the beautiful forests it frequents is a good sign indeed. Perhaps it's mankind's responsibility to create the kind of time Celebi would want to visit.

Trivia

  • Celebi was the second Pokémon introduced who is not legitimately obtainable in any main series game as of now, the first being Mew.
    • It is possible to obtain Celebi in the Japanese version of Crystal, by placing the GS Ball on the Shrine in Ilex Forest.
  • Celebi bonded with a younger version of Professor Oak in Pokémon 4Ever. In the same movie, Celebi is revealed to be able to take people and Pokémon into the past or future.
  • Celebi could be obtained on the Pokémon Store on New York that opened November 16, 2001. During the first month of opening, you could put your game into their Pokédex and you would get a Celebi.
  • Celebi is the only Pokémon thus far that is able to time travel, other than Dialga, the Time Deity.
  • In HeartGold and SoulSilver, when you approach the shrine in Ilex Forest with a promotional Celebi, you will go back in time 3 years to battle Giovanni.
  • The only way to obtain a Shiny Celebi outside of Japan is through hacking or the Gamestop/GAME Event.
  • A hacked Celebi will not trigger the Zorua event in Black and White. Only Celebi from the GameStop/GAME event will have the bond with the Zorua in Castelia City. This also resembles the part in the thirteenth movie, where Celebi shared a great bond with Zorua.
  • In PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure after you beat the game in the Meeting Place, there's a sign with a code on it that when you enter it, you can encounter Celebi.
  • Because of its physical appearance it has been confused as an Onion Fairy despite its Pokédex entry as a Timetravel Pokémon.
  • In celebration of Pokémon's 20th Anniversary, a Celebi could be received via mystery gift by connecting to the Internet on Pokémon X/Y & Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire from March 1 to 24, 2016.
  • Celebi's type (Psychic/Grass) is one of the few type combinations that has the max 7 weaknesses. It also shares this typing (except the types are switched around) with Exeggcute and Exeggutor.

Origin

Celebi is based on a fairy.

Etymology

  • "Celebi" is a combination of "celestial" and "being".
