Pokémon GO has seemed to have event after event lately and that hasn’t stopped throughout December which just saw its big Community Day wrap up. And just as it did another new event began, this time centered around Jessie and James and their search for shiny Celebi. The Mythical Pokémon is the ultimate prize of the new Special Research as well, but there’s a lot more to it than just that. Here’s our Pokémon GO Distracted by Something Shiny guide with all the tasks and Rewards.
