In {{game|Crystal}}, if the player has the [[GS Ball]] [[Key Item]], they can encounter a wild Celebi in [[Ilex Forest]]. In the original [[Game Boy Color]] release of Pokémon Crystal, this item was distributed via [[Pokémon Mobile System GB]] in Japan (it was not available outside of Japan). In the [[Nintendo 3DS]] [[Virtual Console]] release, the player can obtain the GS Ball in normal gameplay in [[Goldenrod City]] after entering the [[Hall of Fame]], making this the second time a Mythical Pokémon can be encountered in normal gameplay (after {{p|Deoxys}} in {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}).
In {{g|Colosseum}}, Celebi appears if the player uses a [[Time Flute]] at the [[Relic Stone]], descending from above and then flying around a [[Shadow Pokémon]] to instantly Purify[[purification|purify]] it. In the Japanese version, once the player hascan Purifiedobtain Celebi after purifying all 64 Shadow Pokémon, Celebi will joinin the playergame.
It starred in the fourth Pokémon movie, ''[[M04|Celebi: The Voice of the Forest]]''. A Celebi also had a central role in ''[[M13|Zoroark: Master of Illusions]]''.
Jirachi is heavily connected to the real-world Japanese festival of {{wp|Tanabata}}, with several [[List of Tanabata event Pokémon|distributions]] occurring in celebration of the event.

In spite of being included in the preceding games, {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}, Deoxys was first made available in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}. Officially revealed in late 2003 as a leading character in ''[[M07|Destiny Deoxys]]'', players were first able to capture Deoxys by use of the {{DL|Event item|Aurora Ticket}}, which provided access to Birth Island, where it appears in-game.
While Deoxys originally had little impact on the story of [[Generation III]], {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} introduced the [[Delta Episode]], a mission following the {{player}}'s first completion of the [[Hoenn League]] in which the player must stop a meteor from hitting the planet by destroying it with a befriended {{p|Rayquaza}}, revealing a Deoxys within that, if defeated, would reappear on the [[Sky Pillar]] after the player defeated the Elite Four. This marked the first time a Mythical Pokémon was available in-game without the need to attend an event or use a download code.
Contrary to its classification in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, [ Poké] as well as the [[Scholastic]] book ''[[Official Guide to Legendary and Mythical Pokémon]]'' call Deoxys a Legendary Pokémon rather than a Mythical Pokémon.
