The next Pokemon Go Community Day is almost approaching. Before the event, Niantic revealed further information about the incentives that players would be able to get, including the special move for this month’s highlighted Pokemon.
Bulbasaur Community Day will be held on March 25. According to the official Pokemon Go website, the event will last three hours, beginning at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET and ending at 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET. Players will get triple the regular amount of XP for catching Pokemon during those hours, and Lure modules will last three hours.
THE POKEMON Go Bulbasaur Community Day time has been confirmed ahead of the big launch, with Niantic also confirming a new event reveal.
Pocket Monster enthusiasts on iOS and Android will have a busy day today.
The third Pokemon Go Community Day will begin later today and will include a variety of eye-catching gifts.
The most powerful will be linked to Bulbasaur, who will spawn often throughout the three-hour event.
There will be an additional incentive for those who collect enough Bulba Candy and develop a Venusaur during Community Day hours.
Those Pocket Monsters will develop with the exclusive Frenzy Plant action, which will be accessible exclusively during the event hours.
The Pokemon Go Community Day timing for each area has also been announced, implying several global releases.
The third Community Day event begins later today at 10 a.m. in the UK and ends three hours later at 1 p.m. in the UK.
Niantic has confirmed the following timings for the release of Community Day in various regions:
- 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. PST for the Americas and Greenland.
- 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM GMT across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India.
- 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. JST in Asia Pacific.
A new Shiny Venusaur is also anticipated to be released during the event, according to claims that the variety was just introduced to the game.
Shiny Pokemon are more likely to spawn on Community Day, so capture as many Bulbasaurs as you can.
It should be noted that before Trainers may add Venusaur to their Shiny list, they must develop a Shiny Bulbasaur into an Ivysaur.
Other benefits include triple XP for catching Pokemon and three-hour lures.
Pokemon Go Community Day time CONFIRMED following latest Niantic event reveal
“During these hours, you may learn a previously inaccessible move for that Pokémon or its evolution, as well as receive some Community Day benefits.
“Celebrate what it means to be a member of the Pokémon GO Community while making new friends!”
“During Community Day, Fast TMs and Charged TMs will not offer unique moves. You must capture or develop the highlighted Pokémon during Community Day hours to learn the unique move.”
Niantic has also announced that additional things will be available for purchase using PokeCoins during today’s Community Day.
New Community Day boxes are being introduced today, and they will be available for purchase just today.
The Community Day package will include Incense, Lucky Eggs, and Star Pieces and will be available for a few hours after the event concludes in the UK.
In addition to those benefits, players will see more Grass-type starter Bulbasaur spawns, which is the highlighted Pokemon for this month’s Community Day. However, like with last month’s event, Bulbasaur will not be able to learn the unique Community Day move; rather, its ultimate evolution, Venusaur, will be able to learn it if you evolve it during the event.
If players can develop Ivysaur into Venusaur by the conclusion of Community Day, the Pokemon will learn the devastating Grass-type move Frenzy Plant. This applies to any Ivysaur you possess, even ones acquired previous to the event. However, the Pokemon will only learn Frenzy Plant if it develops during the event hours, giving you a limited opportunity to get the special move.
The Pokémon Go team at Niantic has published details about its third Pokémon Go Community Day event.
The event will be held on March 25th and will feature the Pokémon Red and Blue starting Bulbasaur.
The Pokémon Go team has planned the event to run from 2pm to 5pm ET, same with previous Community Days. Trainers may capture the starter Pokémon during the event, which will know an unique move that it cannot normally learn.
In addition to the increased number of’seed’ Pokémon spawning in the game, players that capture Pokemon during the event hours will get triple experience points (XP). Lure modules will likewise be three hours long.
The Pokémon Go team will provide additional information about the event as the day approaches.
Pikachu was featured in the inaugural Pokémon Go Community Day event, which took place in January. This Pikachu, like the Pikachu in the games Pokémon Yellow and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, could utilize the move Surf.

My Last Opinion About This Community Day
Bulbasaur is a charming little starter from Generation 1. It develops into Ivysaur and eventually Venosaur, the latter of which is a decently formidable Grass/Poison-type but not really helpful in the current meta. If you develop a Venosaur during the event, it will learn the special move Frenzy Plant; keep in mind that this move can only be learned via evolution, not TMs. As usual, the whole Bulbasaur family will very certainly be available in a lighter green flashy version.
We offer a universal gameplay boost in addition to the Bulbasaur: three times the experience for all captures. Please keep in mind that this is only for catches, so don’t spend Community Day cooped up at home developing.
A word of warning this time: I doubt this Community Day will be quite as popular as last month’s, which included the valuable Dratini in both ordinary and Shiny varieties. Dratini not only evolves into Dragonair and Dragonite, the latter of which is one of the game’s most helpful Pokémon, but the captures also contribute towards the rare Dragon Tamer medal. Bulbasaur has been around long enough that many people have a Venosaur, and on top of that, it’s a much tougher to capture.
One of the most enjoyable aspects about Dratini was that, despite its scarcity, it had a reasonably high catch rate, which meant you could go crazy collecting them as long as Community Day was on. The starters have traditionally had poor catch rates, which means that these Bulbasaurs will be a berry, ball, and time drain, which isn’t as much fun. As a final discouragement, the experience boost isn’t nearly as helpful as the Stardust bonus from last month.
It’s really bad, since last month’s Community Day was one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had with the game in a long time, and judging by the crowds, many others felt the same way. The three-hour timeframe has the potential to generate a feeling of occasion and excitement that drives everyone out to play at the same time, but only if Niantic gets the reward calculation right.
Meanwhile, a new Legendary Pokemon has been added to Pokemon Go. From now through April 2, gamers may re-capture Lugia, the Legendary Psychic- and Flying-type from Pokemon Gold and Silver. Lugia learns the “newly enhanced” Flying move Sky Attack this time, but if players are successful in bringing it down, it should be more simpler to capture than before.
