Strategy Using Celebi

Celebi is very much like Mew with its base stats, but doesn't learn all the TM's/HM's that Mew could. However, its picked up another type, Celebi is part grass.
well, this moveset is pretty simple to understand. Its all about Toxicing your opponent while you keep yourself healthy with the help of heal bell(which cures status problems), Recover (which recovers HP) and Leftovers which will also recover some HP.
Psychic is for the sake of an attacking move, after all, if Celebi ends up to be your last pokemon, it needs something to attack with.
This set may have problems against Steel types but you should switch out if you come up against one. Otherwise, watch out for dark and fire types too, since he has weaknesses to both of them.
Overall, Celebi has well rounded stats and is usable in quite a few movesets, but this is quite a good moveset if you want to cause your opponent some slight annoyance while dealing slow but bad damage to him.
