Celebi (Japanese: セレビィ Celebi) is a dual-type Psychic/Grass legendary Pokémon.

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

Celebi is the last Pokémon in the Johto Dex and Hoenn Dex, although in the latter, Celebi is not shown.

Celebi was a major character in the movie Pokémon 4Ever.

Biology

Physiology

Celebi is a green fairy-like creature. Celebi has round, toe-less feet, three-fingered hands and clear wings on its back. Celebi has a round head that comes to a point and sticks upward in the back, large baby-blue eyes with black rings around them and a pair of green antennae that are tipped blue.

Gender differences

Celebi is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Celebi has the power to travel through time. Celebi can restore plants to perfect health (an ability that is also accredited to Meganium). Celebi mainly attacks with surprisingly powerful Grass and Psychic attacks.

Behavior

Celebi is a fairly playful species in general (like Mew, though less so), and particularly tends to get very excited after being healed (whether out of sheer joy at being healthy again or to show gratitude to whoever helped it is unclear). Celebi are extremely powerful despite their small size, another trait they have in common with Mew. Celebi also can be very timid, despite their awesome power. Although multiple Celebi have been seen at one time, it is unknown if they are different individuals or the same Celebi from different time periods.

Habitat

Because Celebi travels through time, it may inhabit many places. However, Celebi is generally associated with forests. Because of this, it is known as the spirit and guardian of the forest.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

File:Celebi anime.jpg
Celebi in the anime

Celebi first appeared in Pokémon 4Ever. A Pokémon hunter was after it and Celebi traveled 40 years into future to escape from him, taking the young Sammy Oak along with it accidentally. Vicious eventually captured the time traveling Pokémon in a Dark Ball and used it to destroy the forest. Ash and Sammy managed to snap Celebi out of the Iron Masked Marauder's control.

Celebi also made an appearance in Pokémon Chronicles. In Celebi and Joy, Celebi took Ritchie back in time to help stop the destruction of a Pokémon Center.

In Green Guardian, the Pokémon Ranger Solana accompanied Ash and friends in helping the time traveling Pokémon.

A Celebi appeared in the boss fantasy of A Lean Mean Team Rocket Machine.

In the beginning of The Rise of Darkrai, Celebi is seen in the middle of Entei's Fire Spin.

In the manga

In Pokémon Special, Pryce aimed to capture Celebi and use its time-traveling powers to save his two Lapras, which he had lost years ago prior to the start of the GSC saga.

Near the end of the RS Saga, Ruby is revealed to have a Celebi. He explains that due to the lack of information he had on it, he rarely uses Celebi at all. Celebi was used to retrieve the Red and Blue Orbs from Maxie and Archie, to prevent them from ever controlling Groudon and Kyogre again. Then, it revived Norman, Steven and Magma Admin Courtney by sending them through an altered future.

In the TCG

Main article: Celebi (TCG)

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee/Brawl

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.

Celebi returns as a rare Pokémon in Brawl as well; the chance of it appearing is decreased to 1 in 493. Like the other "secret" Pokémon, it drops rare items instead of just flying away. In Celebi's case, the items are Trophies.

Trivia

  • Celebi is the mascot of Serebii.net.
  • Celebi was the only Pokémon of the 100 Generation II Pokémon that wasn't used in the Johto Pokérap.
  • Celebi is notably the hardest Pokémon to obtain, as there are very few ways to legitimately obtain one outside the two Japanese version games it's found in.
  • Celebi has the most weaknesses of all Pokémon, with seven. It shares this with Exeggcute, Exeggutor, Snover and Abomasnow.
  • While Celebi has the power of time travel, it cannot control time, a power belonging to Dialga.
  • Unlike most legendaries, Celebi needs only 1,059,860 Exp. to get to level 100, whereas others need 1,250,000. It shares this trait with Mew and Shaymin. All of these Pokémon have 100 for all of their base stats.
  • During the main story of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2, the Shiny Celebi is referred to as a female, while it is genderless in the main series.
  • A 2008 interview done with Masamitsu Hidaka by the webmaster of PokéBeach 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, however, was shelved, and Celebi became a co-star of Pokémon 4Ever with Suicune.
  • Celebi's number in the National Dex and the Johto Dex are the same: 251. This makes it one of eleven Pokémon to have the same numbers in more than one Pokédex-like listing. The others ten are all members of the Bulbasaur, Ralts, and Beldum evolutionary families.
    • Of these eleven, Celebi is the only one with the same number in two actual Pokédexes.
  • Celebi is the only Pokémon to have a Pokédex entry that is exactly the same in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. Other Pokémon either have unique Pokédex entries for Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald or have same Pokédex entries for Ruby and Sapphire but different entries for Emerald.

Origin

It may be based on a fairy or dryad.

Name origin

Celebi's name may be a combination of celestial and being. Celebi's Japanese name may be taken to be a combination of the English serenity and the Japanese bii, which translates to beautiful. It may also come from celery, due to the fact that Celebi is a Grass-type. It is interesting to note the similarity between "Celebi" and "telebi", the Japanese word for "television". Its name may have even originated from disco artist Celi Bee, and quite possibly, the Spanish word for onion, cebolla, since Celebi's head is shaped and looks slightly like an onion.
