Celebi sitting on the shrine

The Ilex Forest shrine is a small structure located in the Ilex Forest, which it is named after, west of Azalea Town in Johto. It can be found in the deepest part of Ilex Forest, situated right in the center of the forest itself. Many people say that the shrine is a symbol of good luck, and to wear away evil spirits in the forest. Some others say that the shrine is linked to the legendary Pokémon, Celebi, and that it lives inside the forest shrine, as the forest guardian.

The shrine is present in Pokémon Gold and Silver, but has no purpose. In Pokémon Crystal however, it is used to obtain the legendary Pokémon, Celebi. When the player puts a GS Ball on the shrine, a level 30 Celebi will appear. The player then has the opportunity to capture the Pokémon.

The shrine is set to appear in the remakes of Gold and Silver, in the same location as Pokémon Crystal, in the Ilex Forest. Screenshots have been released showing Gold interacting with a Pikachu-colored Pichu and the Notched-ear Pichu near the shrine, but its purpose in these games remains unknown, though likely to be similar to its Generation II function. Notched-ear Pichu will appear at the Ilex Forest shrine if the player approaches it with the Pikachu-colored Pichu first in the party. Her exact role not yet known. However, it is known that she can be caught or obtained by the player in some manner.
