Celebi... a massive disappointment!!! Or just mine?

The mew quest I got 93% iv which was pretty good I thought...
Hoping that a similar good iv pokemon was gonna be worth the 'epic' quest I had completed.

Totally disappointed & wondering why an iv floor of at least 80% wasn't ensured?
CP-1274 (73.3%)
A-10, D-14, S-9

Did anyone get ripped off worse than me?
Please post your crap Celebi stats so I feel like keeping this pokemon instead of trading it...
I think the chance of stats getting worse is pretty small atm

Can't trade Celebi. Can't transfer it. That's your Celebi. Forever.

Thanks for the info, I didn't know that...
I mean, thanks for the even worse news,
Can you organize the delorean so I can go back & avoid the extra disappointment? Cheers

I'm not sure the 9 for HP is possible - don't you get a guaranteed 10-10-10 minimum? Check your IV's again, but yeah 1274 isn't good CP :-(

Maybe calcy iv is wrong?
It does show a unique iv stat...

I dare someone to post a worse celebi! 🤬

Tap the egg icon as this will tell it that the IVs should be a minimum 10-10-10 as per all raids/eggs/quest rewards.

Sometimes the tool can't tell exactly what the value is and gives you a range of options. In this case, it is telling you that 10 is a possibility.

The smaller numbers next to the shield and heart are a range. After selecting egg stats, it will give you 10a/13d/10s.

It's not like it matters, does it? IVs are important if you want to fight with it, but Celebi has no point in a fight anyway...

Well I'm powering up my mew a bit so I can fight with it...
I did plan to power up celebi a few lvls too.
I think it's pointless having them if I never use it & pretty much just reduced another spot in my dex by 1

that's it. that's the only point, filling your dex. you are done just as much as someone with a 93%. no difference.

Mew can have a niche. You can see it as a replacement attacker for any type you would not be well furnished (provided you have a lot of TMs). It will never be the best, but it's always a decent option if you have very few pokemon of any given type.

Examples: Need a water mon? -> Waterfall/Surf Mew. Need a legendary bird killer? -> Charge Beam/Rock Slide Mew. And so on...

Granted, the scenario of a player lacking Vaporeons while still having tons of TMs is very unlikely! But you get the idea.

But Celebi... Grass type without any grass move... Only ok if you are lacking psychic/fairy mons... What does it have for it?

Well, it's cute at least :)

I get that it feels bad but consider the following:
1) Celebi has no chance of being meta relevant if it doesn't get a major moveset rehaul. At best it's a mediocre counter to Machamp with the current movepool.
2) Most of the time IVs don't matter much in a fight anyway. IV are added on top of base stats so a difference of 20% IV is about 2% in overall stats. You will rarely notice any difference fighting with a mon that has worse than perfect IV.

Mine wasn't much better, only 1283.

There's Nothing you can do about it, you can't catch another one and it's no use in combat, so not worth worrying about imo.

I Don't think Niantic intend mythical Pokemon to be good in combat, hense the shocking movepool.

I wouldn't go that far about the mythical thing. Unless they nerf Doom Desire, Jirachi has higher DPS than Metagross despite the huge stat disparity. Mew is held back by average stats, it technically has the moves to do just about anything.

Still, I can't believe Celebi doesn't get a single grass type attack. It's only existing option on the fast move front would be Hidden Power grass and Hyper Beam could have been replaced with literally any grass charge move it can learn.

If nothing else, Celebi should have Future Sight and Ancient Power for the time travel reference.

Future Sight, Ancient Power, and Grass Knot for charge moves? Fine by me.

At least you got a good Mew.

Both of my mythicals are junk, and coincidentally share exact same CP and IV: 1297 CP, 84 %.
It sucks.

Luckily Celebi is useless. Any other relevant grass or psychic type will do whatever Celebi can do but better. Celebi’s typing has always bothered me. When they created the Fairy type they definitely should have made Celebi a Fairy/Grass rather than Psychic/Grass. Or even Psychic/Fairy. Getting STAB on Dazzling Gleam would make it fairly strong against dragons and fighting types.

Upcoming mythicals might be good, however. Jirachi with Doom Desire, Darkrai, Arceus (depending on how they handle typing).

Living wonder dex is a goal for some players and mine for Gen 1 is virtually complete, lacking only regionals, Mewtwo and Mew. Would really suck to be permanently unable to achieve this goal simply because RNG gave a non-wonder Mew or Celebi.

Rejoice! There is a way out. It is only for the Truly Dedicated, though, and it goes like this:

1) Create second account
2) Catch fresh Celebi (and Mew)
3) Repeat until both Celebi and Mew have been obtained with satisfying stats
4) Trade your current set of favorite Pokemon to your new mythical account
5) Catch and level replacements for those Pokemon whose IVs have been ruined by the trade
6) Abandon the empty husk of your old account
7) (^∇^)

Of course there is always 8) Catch Jirachi with abysmal stats

Should we tell the above poster that Mythicals can't be traded?

Lmao, just what the doctor ordered....
I like your style bro. Made me have chuckle!

I have decided to lower my expectations to the point that any future crap the game hands me will actually seem pretty good...

Note: Overall I still enjoy the game & hope they can keep improving it.
I'm def not that hardcore to even contemplate restarting.
And I only use one account, taking the easy path to glory devalues whatever you achieve..

I've been pretty lucky with what I've got so far :) Except for the elusive shiny forms.... my stats have them spawning aprx. 1 in 700 or 2 in 1400 catches

And goin by other posts mine def isn't the worst...

My Celebi is also CP1274. 11A/11D/10S --- 71%

My Mew is CP1265. 10/10/10 ---67%.

Anybody have a worse combo than that?

Yep, we are all owed Celebi's with at least 15 Atk for doing incredibly difficult tasks like spin 7 stops, and evolving 2 Eevee's .... spoiled much!?!?

I agree, mine was 12-A 11-D 11-S that's crap for a mythical Pokemon. I feel with their lore and how they're described in games, shows, and movies, they should be a min of 89% iv's
