The second Pokemon Go Community Day event may have only recently concluded, but Niantic has already revealed details for next month's event. The third Pokemon Go Community Day takes place on March 25, and this time it'll feature one of the original three starting Pokemon from Red and Blue.

Like the previous two Community Days, next month's event is scheduled to run for three hours, beginning at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET and ending at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET. As before, players will be able to obtain a rare Pokemon that knows a special move it cannot typically learn during the event hours. Niantic hasn't revealed what the exclusive move will be for March's Community Day, but the featured Pokemon will be the Grass-type starter Bulbasaur.

On top of increased Bulbasaur spawns, players will earn triple XP for catching Pokemon during the event hours. Lure modules will also last for three hours. More details about the Community Day will be revealed closer to the event.

The first Pokemon Go Community Day event took place back in January and gave players a chance to capture a Pikachu that could use Surf, just like the one that was featured in the classic Pokemon Yellow version. The second Community Day took was held this past weekend, on February 24. It featured increased spawns of the rare Dragon-type Pokemon Dratini. Players who were able to evolve Dratini's evolution, Dragonair, into a Dragonite during the event hours, the Pokemon would learn the powerful Dragon-type attack Draco Meteor.

Before the next Community Day rolls around, Pokemon Go players will be able to catch a special party hat Pikachu to celebrate Pokemon Day and buy new avatar outfits inspired by Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen. Players also have another chance to add Groudon and Kyogre to their team; the two Legendaries are returning to the game after their initial tenure as Raid bosses from now until March 5. The Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza is also available in Pokemon Go until March 16.
