The next real-world event for Pokémon GO is nearly here. Niantic is hosting the third Pokemon Go Community Day this Sunday, March 25, giving players around the world a chance to earn bonuses and capture rare Pokemon, including one that may know an exclusive move.
Like previous Community Days, this month’s event will be held during a specific three-hour window, which will kick off at different times depending on where you live. In the US, the event begins at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET and runs until 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET; in Europe and Africa, it runs from 10 AM – 1 PM UTC; and in the Asia-Pacific region, the event lasts from 12 PM – 3 PM JST. During the Community Day hours, you will earn triple the normal amount of XP for every Pokémon you capture. It will also be possible to earn up to six times the usual amount of XP for catching Pokemon if you activate a Lucky Egg during the event. As an additional perk, Lure Modules will last for three hours.
Pokémon GO: The featured Pokémon for this month’s Community Day is the classic Kanto starter, Bulbasaur.
The Grass-type will spawn much more frequently during the event hours. If you manage to evolve one into Venusaur before the Community Day ends, it will learn the powerful Grass-type attack Frenzy Plant. However, only Venusaur that are obtained during the event will learn Frenzy Plant, giving you only a brief window of time to get the exclusive move. In addition to the Community Day, Pokemon GO‘s Easter-themed Eggstravaganza event is now underway.
From now until April 2, Pokemon that typically hatch from 5 km or 10 km Eggs, like Wynaut or Ralts, can be hatched from 2 km Eggs, and certain Pokemon like Pichu and Togepi will hatch more frequently. Every Egg that’s hatched during the event will also come with extra Candy.
Pokémon GO‘s latest Legendary Pokemon, Lugia, is also still available. The Psychic-type will appear in Raid Battles until April 2, and this time around it knows the “newly improved” Flying move Sky Attack. Players will also find that Lugia is also easier to capture than it was during its initial run if they manage to bring it down.
Pokémon GO Easter Event Now Underway For A Limited Time
A new event is now underway in Pokémon GO. Ahead of this month’s Community Day, Niantic is bringing back the Easter-themed Eggstravaganza event, making it easier for players to hatch certain Pokémon and providing extra bonuses for a limited time.
The event kicked off on March 22 and gives players a chance to hatch an “even greater variety” of Pokémon from Eggs. In particular, monsters that typically hatch from 5 km or 10 km Eggs, like Wynaut or Ralts, can be found in 2 km Eggs for the duration of the event. Some Pokemon, such as Pichu and Togepi, will also hatch more frequently. In addition to that, every Egg that players hatch during the Eggstravaganza event will come with extra Candy. Niantic is also offering double Stardust throughout the event as an added bonus, and special boxes that contain Super Incubators, Star Pieces, and other items will be available for purchase from the in-game shop.
Pokemon Go’s Eggstravaganza event runs until 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET on April 2. That is also the same day that the latest Legendary Pokemon, Lugia, is scheduled to leave the game. Following its initial run as a Raid Battle boss last summer, Lugia returned to Pokemon Go earlier this month. This time, the Legendary Pokémon knows the “newly improved” Flying move Sky Attack, and Niantic says it will be easier to capture than before if players manage to successfully defeat it.
Niantic is hosting the third Pokémon GO Community Day event this weekend, on March 25. As before, the event will run for a three-hour block of time. The featured Pokemon for this month’s Community Day is the classic Red and Blue starter Bulbasaur, and if players manage to evolve it into a Venusaur during the event hours, it will learn the powerful Grass-type attack Frenzy Plant.
