How to get shiny Celebi Research

You can purchase the Whisper in the Woods Masterwork Research for $5 (or the equivalent pricing in your local currency) in the in-game Shop. You’ll be glad to know that there’s no time limit for this quest, so you can complete it at your convenience.

Why can’t I buy shiny Celebi ticket?

If you have already completed the ‘Distracted by Something Shiny’ Special Research available in December 2020, you won’t be able to buy the Whisper in the Woods ticket.

Each trainer can have only one shiny Mythical in Pokemon Go, so you cannot take on any quests rewarding the same prize again.
