This special Celebi is being distributed alongside the purchase of the classics Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver on the Virtual Console on the 3DS. Upon purchasing or prepurchasing one of these games, you’ll be able to view a Serial Code that can be redeemed like other Mystery Gift Codes in Pokemon Sun and Moon. Only one Celebi can be redeemed per code, and it can be redeemed in either Pokemon Sun, Pokemon Moon, or Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
Here’s how to get the code:
- Purchase Pokemon Gold or Pokemon Silver on the 3DS eShop
- On the 3DS Nintendo eShop, select the top left Menu.
- Select Settings/Other
- Select Account Activity
- From here, you can view your Pokemon Gold or Silver receipt
- The serial code is displayed in the purchase details
You will also receive an email from Nintendo with this information.
You must redeem this code by October 31, 2018.
Gold and Silver 3DS Themes
Purchase Pokemon Gold or Pokemon Silver via the eShop on the 3DS to get a code to unlock one of these themes. You’ll get the gold Ho-oh theme if you purchase Pokemon Gold on the eShop, and the silver Lugia theme if you purchase Pokemon Silver on the eShop.
These themes play the original Pokemon Gold and Silver title screen music.
The code for these themes are located on the Pokemon Gold and Silver eShop receipt, where you’ll find the code for Celebi.
Gym Cast 3DS Theme

This theme is based on the Gym Leaders and cast in Pokemon Gold and Silver and is given as a bonus for purchasing a Pokemon Gold or Pokemon Silver code from Amazon, GameStop, or Best Buy.
Keep in mind, this will come instead of the eShop bonus themes, and there have been no reports of Celebi codes distributed when Pokemon Gold and Silver were purchased through retailers. It’s worth noting the retailer sites also make no mention of a Celebi code, and Pokemon.com specifically states “The code will appear when Pokémon Gold or Pokémon Silver is purchased in Nintendo eShop…”
We will update this page when the game launches!
