Celebi probably originated from the word "celestial".
Celebi wanders across time. Grass and trees flourish in the forests in which it has appeared. When it disappears deep in a forest, it is said to leave behind an egg it brought from the future. This Pokémon came from the future by crossing over time. It is thought that so long as Celebi appears, a bright and shining future awaits us.
Celebi is not available in any English version of the Pokémon game, and is not obtainable at all in Pokémon Red and Blue. Like Mew, you would have obtain it by a Nintendo giveaway event or by using Gameshark. However, it is also available in the Japanese bonus disc for Pokemon Colliseum, as Jirachi is available on the american version.
Obtaining Celebi in the game
In the Japanese version of Pokémon Crystal, Celebi can be caught by obtaining the GS ball (the same one that Ash had to carry around while in the Orange Islands). However, this requires a cable to connect the Game Boy Color with a cell phone.
After letting the Pokéball Expert, Kurt, take a look at it, he will ask you to take it to the Ilex Forest shrine where the forest's protector, Celebi, is honored. Upon placing the GS ball there, Celebi will appear and go to you. Only then will you be able to try to capture it.
To do this in the English version, it is necessary to use a cheat code to obtain the GS ball since it is not possible to get the cable that connects the Game Boy Color to the cell phone outside of Japan, nor did the game keep its full compatibility with it once translated.
Celebi is one of the main characters in the movie Pokémon 4 Ever.
In this movie, Celebi is running away from a hunter. He crashes into young Samuel Oak who protects him, and in return, Celebi transports them 40 years into the future (bringing them to the present) to save them from a Team Rocket member who turns Celebi into a Shadow Pokémon. See Pokémon Colosseum
