===Major appearances===
====[[Celebi (M04)]]====
Celebi debuted in ''[[M04|Celebi: The Voice of the Forest]]''. A {{pkmn|poacher|Pokémon hunter}} was after it and Celebi traveled 40 years into future to escape from him, taking young [[Sam]] along with it accidentally. The [[Iron-Masked Marauder]] eventually captured the Time Travel Pokémon in a [[Dark Ball]] and used it to destroy the forest. {{Ash}} and [[Sam]] managed to snap Celebi out of the Iron-Masked Marauder's spell.
 
====[[Celebi (M13)]]====
** A different non-shiny Celebi appears in {{g|Super Mystery Dungeon}}, who is referred to as a male.
* Although Celebi has a {{Shiny}} sprite, Shiny Celebi cannot be obtained from Generation III onward.
* A 2008 [http://www.pokebeach.com/news/0708/second-pokemon-interview-with-masamitsu-hidaka-many-interesting-points interview] done with [[Masamitsu Hidaka]] revealed that the [[GS Ball]] was initially meant to contain a Celebi that would be used in a story arc throughout the Johto series. This idea was shelved, however, and {{OBP|Celebi|M04}} became the star of ''[[M04|Celebi: The Voice of the Forest]]''.
* Celebi is the only Pokémon whose number in the [[National Pokédex]] and the [[List of Pokémon by New Pokédex number|New Pokédex]] are the same: 251.
* According to a dead Nintendo of Japan page from the early 2000s, Celebi's Japanese name was initially romanized as ''Selbi'' as opposed to the later ''Celebi''.<ref>[http://www.nintendo.co.jp/n07/selbi/ Nintendo of Japan page]{{dead link}}</ref><ref>[http://www.math.miami.edu/~jam/azure/forum/tuff/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=7;t=001003 The Azure Heights Forum: How to get Serebii] (thread from March 2001, containing a link to the aforementioned Nintendo of Japan page)</ref>
