    There are hundreds of Pokémon hiding out in the world of Pokémon Go, but some are rarer than others. These mythical Pokémon are available through official contests, campaigns, and Raids, but there are some who require a little bit more effort to track down.

    Mew was the first Pokémon available to catch through the game's Special Research campaign. Now Nintendo has added a second creature to the list, the mythical Psychic and Grass-type Pokémon known as Celebi.

    It's not as easy as finding it on your game map. You must complete the Special Research campaign A Ripple in Time in order to get your chance to nab this valuable Pocket Monster. Haven't managed to get your hands on Celebi yet? Here's how to do it.

    1A Ripple in Time Part 1 - Battle
    The first part of your quest will revolve around battling your Pokémon against others. The first thing you'll have to do is power up your Pokémon five times by collecting Stardust and Candy. Get Stardust from catching or feeding Pokémon in a Gym. Get Candy by transferring Pokémon in exchange for their specific Candy. You'll have to catch a lot of Pokémon to get past this one.

    Once you have powered your Pokémon up, you will then need to battle in a Gym twice and a Raid once. Locate a Gym on your map, and when you're in range, you can perform both tasks. A Gym battle you can do on your own, but a Raid will require you to work together with other players to defeat one strong Pokémon.

    2A Ripple in Time Part 2 - Evolve
    The second part of your quest will have you doing a little bit of everything. You will need to make three friends in the game by sharing your Trainer Code with other players and sending friend requests to people you know. You also must catch three Pokémon three days in a row (so nine total), which shouldn’t be too difficult.

    Hardest of all, though, is that you will have to evolve an evolved Grass-type Pokémon. Considering the requirements, it narrows things down a bit. That means you will have to evolve your Ivysaur into Venusaur, your Weepinbell into Victreebel, your Bayleef into Meganium, etc. Remember, you can generally find Grass-types in open fields and wooded areas.

    3A Ripple in Time Part 3 - Hatch Eggs
    The third part of your quest gets a little specific with its tasks. You must reach Level 25 in the game. You can level up as a trainer by catching Pokémon, hatching eggs, interacting with PokéStops, and battling at Gyms. You must also hatch nine eggs, which you can do by collecting eggs and incubators, then walking around for the allotted distance. Since common eggs require less walking, it's a good idea to use them in this situation, if you want to get through this part quickly.

    In order to move ahead, you must also use a Sun Stone to evolve a Gloom into Bellossom or a Sunkern into Sunflora. Since both Pokemon are rare finds in the wild, it's hard to say which one is best to target. Keep in mind that Gloom will also require 100 Candies to evolve, while Sunkern will only need 50, which could save you a lot of time in the end.

    4A Ripple in Time Part 4 - Espeon
    The next two parts are very Eevee focused, so make sure you've found plenty of them by this point. Basically, you have to evolve Eevee into Espeon, which is actually a two-part process. Because Eevee will normally evolve into one of Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon with 25 Candies, you must first make your Eevee eligible to become Espeon.

    You can do this by assigning Eevee as your buddy and walking 10 km. This will complete your first task, and also make it possible to accomplish the second. Now if you use 25 Candies on that Eevee during the day, it will evolve in Espeon.

    Finish out this part of the quest by sending 20 gifts to your friends. Go to your friend page and select the person you want to send a gift to. You can gather items to gift at PokéStops. Keep in mind that you can only gift each friend once a day, so if you want to get through this quickly, you’ll need to friend a few people. Trainers who are 13 or younger don’t have to go through this step, so it will complete on its own.


    5A Ripple in Time Part 5 - Umbreon
    You must do everything you did with Eevee in the last stage, only this time you will evolve the Pokémon at night. Assign Eevee as your buddy, walk 10 km again, and then use 25 Candies to evolve it into Umbreon at night. The only other thing you have to do to move forward is complete a trade with another player.

    In order to perform a trade, you must be in close proximity to another player in real life. When determining which Pokémon to trade with another player, it’s important to consider the price you will have to pay for the deal. Pokémon already in a player’s Pokédex will cost less than if you were to receive a creature you haven’t seen yet.

    6A Ripple in Time Part 6 - Items
    This part of the quest requires trainers to use some of the many items you can collect in the game. You must use 25 Pinap Berries while catching Pokémon, which can help you gain more candies upon a successful capture. Find these items at PokéStops and Gyms.

    You will also be required to use two Evolution Items to evolve Pokémon. These special items can be obtained from PokéStops and Gyms, or by completing research tasks. The Dragon Scale can be used to evolve Seadra into Kingdra. King’s Rock will evolve Poliwhirl into Politoed and Slowpoke into Slowking. Metal Coat will evolve Onix into Steelix and Scyther into Scizor. The Up-Grade can evolve Porygon into Porygon 2. As seen previously, the sun Stone can turn Gloom into Bellossom and Sunkern into Sunflora.

    The only other task you need to complete is to visit PokéStops seven days in a row. By performing this task, you will receive a bonus and be gifted with a valuable item. This is an easy way to get an Evolution Item.

    7A Ripple in Time Part 7 - Throw a Curveball
    The tasks in part seven work well together, so you can earn your way to completing all three at the same time. You must catch 30 Grass- or Psychic-type Pokémon, which means you should probably hang out in a grassy area for a while. Psychic Pokémon don't have a set area they like to populate, so you're better of targeting Grass-types if you can.

    While you're busy working to catch those 30 Pokémon, you can also practice your throwing technique because you need to perform an Excellent Curveball Throw. When you encounter a Pokémon, you can actually control where and when you throw the Poké Ball. Time your throw when the glowing ring is at its smallest and your throw will be considered better. To perform a Curveball, you need to spin the Poké Ball in a circle and release it in such a way that it lands inside the circle in front of the Pokémon. If you do it right, you'll perform an Excellent Curveball Throw, and you'll pass this part of the quest.

    While you're off catching Pokémon, hopefully you're also racking up the amount of critters you have seen before you need to earn the gold Johto Medal in order to continue on. To earn this medal, you will have to fill your Pokédex with 100 Pokémon from the Johto region.

    8A Ripple in Time Part 8 - Catch Celebi
    Once you complete part seven, you will encounter Celebi and have a chance to capture the mythical Pokémon. Celebi will teleport around the screen during your encounter, making the process of capturing it to be a little tricky. Celebi has a 100 percent catch rate, though, so you're guaranteed to bring one home with you if you made it this far. If you're having trouble keeping Celebi in the Poké Ball, throwing a Curveball will give you an increased catch rate
