The events in Pokémon Go always have a specific theme centered around them, and sometimes they feature special guests. For the Distracted by Something Shiny event, it looks like Jessie and James are making their return to the game. The dynamic duo will be assisting trainers as they attempt to work their way through catching shiny Pokémon, and the shiny event features several tasks players need to complete before the event times out.

All Distracted by Something Shiny research tasks and rewards – Catching a shiny Celebi
