dada zarude shiny celebi

Last year, Japanese Pokémon players were able to download a special “Dada Zarude” by watching Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle in theaters. The twenty-third Pokémon movie is finally coming to the West, and so is its starring Mythical Pokémon. International players were previously able to snag a normal Zarude last year… but this one has a scarf. The Pokémon Company has also announced that a Shiny Celebi event is on the way too! Here are the official descriptions for both:
