Starting December 14, you'll be able to play a Special Research event with a story inspired by the movie. In an interesting twist, Team Rocket's Jessie and James will be guiding you through the story instead of Professor Willow.

The actual Research Tasks have yet to be revealed, but completing the Research will earn you an encounter with Shiny Celebi. If this Special Research is like the others, there shouldn't be a time limit on when you can complete it.

The event will feature more Pokémon that are related to the movie. In addition to Shiny Celebi, Explorer Pikachu will also be new to Pokémon GO.

Other Pokémon for the event include Hoothoot, Nuzleaf, Drilbur, Cottonee, Dwebble and Durant in the Wild. Lickitung, Mawile, Flygon and Rufflet can be battled in Raids, and Igglybuff, Smoochum, Elekid, Magby, Bonsly and Rufflet will hatch from Eggs. Rufflet can also be Shiny, which is yet another debut for Pokémon GO.
