Pokemon GO has added yet another special research quest to the game today in the form of 'Distracted by Something Shiny'.
This new quest is in conjunction with the Secrets of the Jungle event, added as part of a celebration of the new Pokemon movie by the same name.
The research quests for Distracted by Something Shiny ultimately allow players to catch a second Celebi, which was originally made available for the A Ripple in Time special research in 2018.
Better still, the Celebi players encounter at the end of the Distracted by Something Shiny quest will be a shiny Celebi.
All players need to do is start the Distracted by Something Shiny research quest whilst it's available.
The quest starts Monday 14th December and can be collected by Thursday, 17th December ending at 10pm local time.
As long as you collect the quest, you can complete it at any time and take as long as you need to finish.
Although it is far easier to finish this quest during the Secrets of the Jungle event because grass-type Pokemon spawn more frequently and Team Rocket leaders Jessie and James' balloon should be spawning more frequently too.
