Pokemon Go's Next Community Day Event Takes Place Today
Community Day is here.
The next real-world event for Pokemon Go is here. Niantic is hosting the third Pokemon Go Community Day today, 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 Pokemon 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.
The featured Pokemon 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.
Pokemon 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.
