Celebi (Japanese: セレビィ Celebi) is a Shiny Pokémon that appears in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, as well as Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX.

Although normally gender unknown, this Celebi is referred to as a female; however, during gameplay, it is treated as gender unknown.

Shiny Celebi is impossible to permanently recruit through legitimate means in Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky.

In the games


Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

Celebi is seen in the future, where she originally helped Grovyle escape to the present to collect Time Gears. Celebi can travel short distances through time all by herself, but for big trips of many generations, she uses the Passage of Time at the end of Deep Dusk Forest. She does not like the everlasting darkness of the future, and is willing to sacrifice herself to get rid of the planet's paralysis.

When the player and partner are trapped in the future with Grovyle, Celebi guides them, by joining their team, through Deep Dusk Forest to the Passage of Time, where they can escape to the present again. When they make it there they are cut off by Dusknoir and his Sableye, as well as Primal Dialga. Primal Dialga interferes with Celebi's time traveling, but thanks to the partner's quick thinking, she is able to teleport them forwards in time just past Dusknoir and his Sableye and close enough to the Passage of Time to escape. She repeatedly claims it's impossible for Dusknoir to catch her and this seems to hold true, as it appears she escapes Dusknoir after helping the player, partner, and Grovyle go back in time.

In the Future of Darkness

In the In the Future of Darkness special episode, Celebi reappears as a prisoner of Spiritomb at the end of the Icicle Forest, used by Dusknoir to bait Grovyle into standing in between the four electricity-generating pillars of ice to literally melt away Grovyle's spirit. Dusknoir would then occupy Grovyle's body and return to the past; however, he gives up on the ploy right as Grovyle's spirit was almost completely melted away. Out of nowhere, Primal Dialga then appears, and attacks everyone except Celebi and Spiritomb; however, it is after this time that the long-paralyzed planet finally starts moving again, as pointed out by Celebi by breezing winds and, most notably, an aurora. After being saved by Grovyle and Dusknoir, they chase the berserk Primal Dialga to the top of Vast Ice Mountain, where she helps in the successful effort to take it down. Afterwards, she, Grovyle, Dusknoir, Sableye, Dialga, and the other Pokémon of the future are spared of being erased from history, presumably by Arceus.

201 Spoilers end here. 201

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon

Celebi reappears as a character that needs to be rescued in Super Mystery Dungeon through Grovyle's request. Rescuing Celebi will allow her and Grovyle to be used as playable characters. Upon being rescued, Celebi thinks to herself that she fainted on purpose just so that Grovyle would come to save her.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX

Celebi appears during the post-game. After beating Purity Forest for the first time, a Shiny Celebi has a rare chance to appear in Mystery Houses, likely as a reference to the Celebi from Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky. If a Shiny Celebi is encountered, simply talking to her will recruit her into the player's team. Celebi is the only Shiny Pokémon to not be encountered as a Strong Foe.

Personality and characteristics

Apparently, Celebi has feelings for Grovyle, which are shown when the player and the partner are trapped in the future, even blushing when the player talks to her. Right before they both vanish in the morning sun after defeating Primal Dialga at the Vast Ice Mountain Peak, Grovyle holds Celebi in his arms as they watch the future's first sunrise, with Celebi commenting that she had never seen such a beautiful sight before.
