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

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

It serves as the guardian of Ilex Forest.

Celebi is the last Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex and Hoenn Pokédex in Generation III, although in the latter, Celebi is not shown.

Biology

 
Celebi sensing a temporal anomaly

Celebi is a green, fairy-like Pokémon. It has round toeless feet, three-fingered hands, and clear wings on its back. It has a round head that comes to a curved point. It has large baby-blue eyes with thick black rings around them, and a pair of green antennae with blue tips.

Often found in forests, Celebi is a Mythical Pokémon, known in legend as the "Voice of the Forest." It is able to travel through time and exist simultaneously throughout time, and plant life flourishes wherever it has been. As seen in the anime, it is able to bring deceased Celebi back to life and restore plants to perfect health. Celebi also has the ability to heal wounds. It was shown in Pokémon Colosseum that Celebi has the power to instantly cause the Purification of any Shadow Pokémon and can be summoned at Relic Forest with the melody of a Time Flute.

Despite living in forests as its guardian, Celebi only shows itself in areas and times of peace. It has been regarded that as long as Celebi are seen throughout the world, a prosperous and bright future is still in store for the Pokémon world. As shown in the anime, it can sense if something is a temporal anomaly in their current timeline and will bring them back to their original timeline. Celebi has been referred to as a forest deity.

However, Ash and Sam managed to snap Celebi out of the Iron-Masked Marauder's spell.

Celebi (M13)

In Zoroark: Master of Illusions, Grings Kodai was after Celebi's Time Ripple in order to restore his ability to see the future, which he got on a previous encounter with it. It befriended Zorua and helped save Zoroark after she was mortally injured by Kodai.

Celebi (recurring)

In A Timeless Encounter!, a Celebi was disturbed by the battle between Ash's Lycanroc and Torracat. In response, it accidentally caused Ash and Torracat to travel back to the past.

Other appearances

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 information

"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

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 information

"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 trophy in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS

Celebi appears as a trophy in the 3DS version only.

Trophy information

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.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Celebi appears as a Spirit.

Game data

NPC appearances

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.
  • Pokémon Ranger: Celebi is in a Ranger Net mission. In the mission, the player must capture the Celebi to save it from the Go-Rock Squad. It is found wandering in Lyra Forest.
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness: A Shiny Celebi is a supporting protagonist in the main storyline. When the player and partner are sent to the future by Dusknoir, the player, partner, and Grovyle work together to get back to the past. Celebi was the Pokémon who sent Grovyle and the player to the past before, and the trio receive her help to go back again.
  • Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs: Celebi is the first boss of the game and a main Pokémon in the storyline. It has the power to time travel and can send the player (without the Ukulele Pichu) into the past. It can also send specific Pokémon to the present if the player uses the correct Ranger Signs.
  • Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon: A regular Celebi appears with Ampharos and Jirachi of the Expedition Society to transport the player and partner out of harm's way before Nuzleaf and Beheeyem get a second chance to petrify the player and partner after their return from the Voidlands. Celebi explains that Dark Matter once threatened to attack the Tree of Life which would have resulted in the planet's collision with the sun, but was stopped by the efforts of a human and a Pokémon. Celebi theorizes this same human was brought back to the present by the ancient Mew. Celebi also reveals that the Harmony Scarves worn by the player and partner were made using materials from the Tree of Life; their temporary evolutions were triggered as a result of the Tree's power. Later, Celebi helps assist many other Pokémon in stopping the ascent of the Tree of Life into the sun a second time. It, along with the Shiny Celebi from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, are recruitable after completion of the main story via the Connection Orb.
