Celebi (Japanese: セレビィ Celebi) is a main character in Zoroark: Master of Illusions.
Prior to the movie, businessman Grings Kodai discovered Celebi in Crown City and used his Pokémon to attack and knock out the Time Travel Pokémon when it tried to escape into the Ripple of Time. Kodai then touched the time ripple that was produced due to Celebi's time traveling, and as a result of this, he gained the ability to have powerful hallucinations that show him the future. However, by attacking Celebi, he caused the flow of time to reverse in Crown City, destroying all of its greenery.
Twenty years later, Celebi returns to the city, unaware of the fact that Kodai wished to capture it in order to renew his ability to see into the future. While greeting some of the local Pokémon and making some of the greenery grow, it meets and befriends Zorua while the latter was searching for his mother, Zoroark, who was being blackmailed by Kodai. After calming a large group of angry wild Pokémon that had attacked Zorua in retribution for what his mother was forced to do, Celebi agrees to assist its new friend in locating his mother. During their search, Celebi comforts a saddened Zorua by growing a patch of grass around him that reminded Zorua of his mother's fur.
Soon, Celebi finds itself and Zorua pursued by Kodai's minions. During the confrontation, Zorua tries to protect Celebi but is easily defeated. Kodai quickly captures Celebi and strangles it in order to force it to reveal the location of the Ripple of Time to him. Zorua recovers and tries to fight again, only to be overwelmed until Ash and company arrive and rescue them both. Celebi is left too badly hurt to fly, and thus it's up to Ash and the others to get it to the time ripple before Kodai. However, Kodai is quickly on their tail, forcing Dawn and Brock to stay behind to hold off Goone, but Kodai still close behind. Thinking quickly, Celebi hides in Ash's backpack, allowing Zorua and Karl's Bronzor to lure Kodai away.
Ash and Pikachu manage to get Celebi into the Pokémon Baccer World Cup Stadium, the location of the Ripple of Time, but Kodai, having defeated and captured Zorua, arrives and disables the group with his Mismagius's Psychic. Zoroark arrives, but is likewise detained when Kodai threatens Zorua's life. Unopposed Kodai then finds what he believes to be the time ripple, and begins to absorb its power, not caring if the disaster that befell Crown City years ago occurred again. The "time ripple" ends up being an illusion created by Zoroark and Kodai was nowhere near the energy field. Afterwards, Kodai was driven away by Zoroark and the guardians of Crown City, but Zoroark collapses from a mortal wound sustained from Kodai. As Zorua cries over his mother, Ash helps Celebi reach the true Ripple of Time, allowing it recover its strength. Celebi then uses the ripple's energy field to heal Zoroark, repaying Zorua for his kindness. Happy that Zorua and Zoroark are reunited and Kodai was defeated, Celebi makes the area's greenery bloom in celebration before finally departing for another time, Zorua promising to be its friend forever.
In the credits, Celebi is last seen emerging from the time ripple and disappearing into the depths of a forest.
To coincide with the movie release, a fateful encounter Celebi based on this one was distributed in local events; from July to September 2010 in Japan, and during February and March 2011 in other regions. It has special in-game effects on HeartGold and SoulSilver, and in Black and White. It can be received in any of the main series Generation IV games, and like most of these distributions, can only be received once per game cart.

|The date this Pokémon was received is determined by the date on the DS when it was obtained from the Poké Mart.|
NOTE: The template is not ideal, as we need one with all the similarities between the events but omitting the differences (like OT), plus I think the current event template is too bloated. (I know it emulates the in-game status screen, but still). Concisely, the following elements should be removed:
- Nickname (depends on region)
- Dex number (unnecessary)
- OT and ID no. (depend on region)
- Date received, and distribution dates (depend on region)
- Location met (depends on region)
- The fact the date may vary (should be mentioned in prose in another part of the article)
- Games on which it can be received (should be mentioned in prose in another part of the article)
- Method through which it is received (should be mentioned in prose in another part of the article)
All other elements, such as nature (whether it is random or which is it), and OT color, which *I think* are constant across all different distributions of a Pokémon, and obviously moves and held item and ribbons, should stay.
Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver
If this Celebi is taken by the player to the shrine at Ilex Forest, Lyra and her Marill will appear. Celebi will then take the player back in time to witness a discussion between Silver and his father Giovanni. It will then take the player to Tohjo Falls during the time when the Team Rocket Executives had taken hold of the Goldenrod Radio Tower. In there, he or she encounters Giovanni, who states he doesn't wish to join his former team, and battles the player. After he is defeated, he disappears as he did three years prior, and Celebi takes the player back to the present Ilex Forest shrine.
Pokémon Black and White
The following are the list of different distributions of this particular Celebi. Please note that while the distribution itself is limited to a certain time span, the date the Pokémon is received could be anything, as it is based on the date as registered in the DS.
