Niantic Labs announced on Monday that the next Community Day festivities will take place on Sunday, March 25, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET, Gamespot reported. Just like the first two Community Day events that happened in January and February, the third one for the year will also showcase a featured Pokemon, and this time, it will be Bulbasaur.

Moreover, the upcoming event will also bring others fantastic offers like three-hour lures, triple catch XP, and a special move for Bulbasaur, which Niantic has yet to reveal, the report added. Back in January, the first ever Community Day had Pikachu as its featured Pokemon while last weekend's event put the spotlight on Gratini.

Meanwhile, Niantic also announced last week that Legendary Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon have returned to the Raid Battles. The two will also be joined by Rayquaza, and the three will be available only for a limited time. "Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza each have their own strengths and weaknesses, so challenging all three will take skill!" read Niantic's announcement.

"Power up your strongest Pokémon, grab your friends, and head to nearby Gyms for a chance to battle and catch them from February 23 until March 5," it added.

Interestingly, there are different possible outcomes that Trainers will experience, depending on the overall result of the Raid Battles. "If Rayquaza is defeated more than Kyogre and Groudon combined, Pokémon that typically prefer windy weather (for example, Bagon) are more likely to hatch from Eggs from March 5 to March 16. If not, Pokémon that prefer sunny or rainy weather (like Trapinch or Lotad) are more likely to hatch," explained Niantic.

"Pokemon GO" also launched a 48-hour event to celebrate Pokemon Day last Tuesday, in honor of the launching of the first ever Pokemon Red and Green for Game Boy in Japan. The event marked the return of Birthday Hat Pikachu who now has the ability to become Shiny.
