About This File

In Pokémon Crystal, lies an event encounter whereby users get to challenge (and potentially capture) the Mythical Celebi.
Problem is, the encounter required the usage of the Mobile Communication Device, that was scrapped from the International Versions of the game.
As such, this event became unused for a good 10 odd years. (Using the cheat code 91C089DA, players can immediately get the GS BALL from Kurt, and proceed to get the encounter.)
As of 26th January 2018 12AM (Australia time), Pokémon Crystal (international versions) has been released to the Virtual Console,
with the only requirement for obtaining it being defeating the Elite Four. (Any instance would unlock the flag. Any other step, such as bringing the GS Ball to Kurt and waiting for one day still applies.)
This allowed Celebi to be legitimately captured and transferred up to generation 7.

This file was first uploaded to our Unreleased Gallery, as the Celebi event was unused at that point in time.
This page hosts the Celebi, obtained from the encounter.

It's possible to use some glitches to obtain it, as seen here, from Chickasaurus' video:

Would this be transfereable to Gen 8 too?

Can't think of any reason why it wouldn't be?

VC Gen 2 -> Transporter -> Bank -> HOME -> SWSH

You're loading it to a GameBoy/Emulator save file, which is not a 3DS virtual console save file. Celebi is only obtainable on the virtual console.
