Pokemon X and Y's First Legendary Distribution is Celebi


You can get Celebi by downloading Pokemon Bank before September 2014.

Pokemon Bank [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/128440-Pokemon-X-and-Ys-Pokemon-Bank-Wont-Launch-Until-Dec-27], the cloud service that lets you store a large amount of Pokemon online, and its companion app, Pokemon Transporter, which lets you transfer Pokemon from Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 to X and Y, will launch on December 27 in the US. To celebrate, Nintendo has announced that its launch will also accompany the game's first legendary Pokemon distribution event: Celebi.

As long as you download the app prior to September 2014, a free Celebi will be automatically be placed in your bank. You can then transfer it to your game by launching the Pokemon Link feature from the game menu.

The special event Celebi will have the moves Hold Back, Recover, Heal Bell and Safeguard. Hold Back is a move that cannot be learned during normal gameplay. It is similar to False Swipe, where it will always leave the target Pokémon with no less than 1 HP. The Celebi will be level 10 and have the Ability Natural Cure.

The Pokemon Bank service requires a yearly subscription of $5, and allows you to store up to allows you to 3,000 Pokemon. If this seems a little bit rich to you, and you just want to utilize the service to bring over your Gen V Pokemon, don't fret, the service (including the Pokemon Transporter) will have a free trial period, from when it launches until January 31.

Well looks like I'll have 2 Celebis then. I've got the 10th Anniversary Celebi in my Pokemon White game as well.

Welp, JWittz's girlfriend will be happy, she likes Celebi.

I wouldn't mind a fairy-onion, myself. Speaking of which, it seems fitting to change it from Psychic/Grass to Fairy/Grass, I wonder if they did?

Bulbapedia says no, as of now, but I'm not even sure if they can find that out for sure, yet without those hacker-types like that which found the legendary trio.

As for the bank, all I want it for is to transport my valued Pokemon, and possibly to quickly rid my boxes of my many level 1 Skarmorys...

Looks interesting, though outside of the Celebi I don't think I'll really use the bank all that much. The price does seem reasonable.

Move all my stuff on Black (which all traces back to Ruby through Diamond) to X and Y and get a Celebi in the process? Well Nintendo I was gonna get the Pokebank anyway but thanks for giving me stuff. I appreciate it.

Very excited about this. Celebi is way underdistributed. And they made it really easy this time around. Speaking as one of those crazy completionists, this is something I needed.

I already have three (legit!) Celebis. What they need to do is distribute Manaphy and Phione because I'm pretty sure there's no way to get them right now without transferring them across at least three separate games.

Ooho, I'm pretty darn happy about this.
Celebi's always been my number one favorite legendary yet I've never had one in game.
I hope I get some Good IV's and a positive nature.

You are thinking about the Manaphy Egg from Pokemon Ranger, as there was never a Celebi egg available in the Ranger series to my knowledge. The Manaphy Egg transfers into the Gen IV Pokemon games (Diamond, Peral, Platinum).

I'm pretty sure they included footage of Reshiram in the trailer because they knew I was watching. I ended up being more excited about that then getting a Celebi. I guess it's because I already have one, but it's cool to get another Celebi too.

All I know is that I'm gonna pull a Noah and get at least two of every Pokemon into the Pokemon Bank, and at least 100 of my GTS Reshirams.

Totally worth it when I did that. If you want it then take the time to do it. I'm not waiting for Nintendo to release it as a WiFi download.

OT: Yay free Pokemon for a service I was going to be using anyway :D

So you have bought every piece of clothing? Got all the items? Beaten the entire Battle Mansion? And become the world champion in every tier?

Yes. I also caught the Mew under the truck, collected every form of Missingno and went to space to catch Deoxys. After you do all of those and upload them to your Gen VI games, Professor Oak will appear and present you with a Lvl 150 Mewthree.
