As part of the event, a new set of special studies titled “Distracted by Something Shining” has been added to Pokemon GO..
In this special study, Shiny Celebi will be added to the game and players will need to complete a three-step task before they can get the Pink Onion Fairy.
Unlike previous research tasks, this is led by Jesse and James, the infamous Team Rocket duo of Pokemon anime and movies. I will not meet Professor Willow this time.
This special study was added during the event, but you don’t have to rush to complete it as you can open the game and tap the Jesse and James icons in the corner to unlock it permanently.
