The Time Flute is an item that, when used, will awaken Celebi to have it completely purify a Shadow Pokémon in Pokémon Colosseum. They are "one-use" items and only 3 of them may be obtained throughout the whole game. A Time Flute can purify a Shadow Pokémon completely, curing the Shadow Pokémon without any need for special treatment at all. It can only be used in the presence of the Relic Stone, however. The Time Flute is exclusive to Pokémon Colosseum, cannot be traded, and cannot be held.

If the player inserts the Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disc in and has all the Shadow Pokémon purified, Celebi will appear to be traded to the Generation III main series games. However, this only works in the Japanese version.

  • Another Time Flute is located in Pyrite Town, but can only be accessed by using the U-Disk for the UFO in The Under.
  • The third and final Time Flute is found at the top of Mt. Battle in story mode, before facing the 100th Trainer, Somek.
