Mythical Pokemon Celebi has been rumored to be heading to the AR-based Pokemon GO game for some time. Today, those attending the Pokemon GO Fest in Chicago went on a three-part quest that if completed, will give them the opportunity to battle Celebi. Attendees today went on a nearly 4 mile walk around the Windy City's Lincoln Park, trying to complete all of the tasks. Pokemon GO Fest will run through tomorrow.

Only those attending the Pokemon GO Fest are being given the chance to battle for Celebri at the moment.
