'Pokémon Go' Celebi Research Tasks: Every Step to Catching the Mythical Pokémon

Celebi is finally live in Pokémon Go. Similar to catching Mew, Pokémon Go players will need to complete 24 different tasks to encounter the Mythical Grass and Psychic-type.

There tasks are split into eight groups of three. If trainers haven't reached a certain point in the Mew tasks they won't be able to participate in the Celebi "A Ripple in Time" Special Tasks.

To gain access to the Celebi Special Tasks in Pokémon Go, trainers will need to have completed the third group of tasks in Mew's "A Mythical Discovery" tasks. The third group of Mew tasks include: Reach Level 15, Battle in Gym two times, and Battle in two raids. If you haven't completed these tasks, there's no rush as the Mew and Celebi Special Tasks are not timed.

With the Celebi tasks now live, Pokémon Go players are slowly learning what they need to do. Twitter user, Chrales has begun to datamine the information in the latest update and has come up with a few lines of code that may point to some of the tasks. You can check out his tweets below.
