Niantic has announced Pokémon Go‘s featured attack for the upcoming Community Day is new to the game. On March 25th, trainers who evolve a Bulbasaur into its third and final form, Venusaur, will earn the Grass-type charge move Frenzy Plant.
According to the developer’s latest blog post, Frenzy Plant can only be taught to Venusaurs that are evolved during the Community Day hours. On Sunday, March 25th, the event will run from 11 a.m. PT to 2 p.m. PT, meaning players will have a three-hour window to earn the new move. It’s unclear what the base power of the Grass-type move will be, but it will be a two-bar charge move, as seen in the image shared by Niantic below.

Similar to the two previous Community Days, Bulbasaur being the featured Pokémon means trainers will find increased spawns of the Generation I starter in their local parks. In addition to the new move and high encounter rate, all catches will grant three times more XP and lures will last three hours.
The first two Community Days featured Pikachu and Dratini, as well as their color variants, known as shinies. In turn, if the trend continues, trainers could see the shiny versions of Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur on March 25th. Niantic also recently introduced the first shiny Legendary into the game with the return of Generation II’s Lugia to raid battles. Players currently have a high chance of encountering the bird’s color-swapped version when battling it in raids. Thankfully, all shinies have a 100 percent catch rate.
