Now, as announced on the official Pokemon Go website, players can begin completing Special Research on Celebi at any time as long as the player has completed the third group of tasks related to the Special Research on Mew and actively finish tasks related to both.
Players who already completed the exclusive Pokemon Go Fest Special Research and already have Celebi, completing the new Special Research will get you Candy.
