The Community day is just around the corner, we have a lot to be excited about! Not only do we get Bulbasaur as the event spawn, but with 3-hour lures and 3x XP per catch.
Bulbasaur will have the exclusive move Frenzy Plant (Announced on 1 PM PST March 16th) we know that Venusaur will receive Frenzy Plant, a two-bar 100 power charged move. It could very well be something to redefine the Bulbasaur family’s place as the most useful GRASS type in the game!

Catching Percentage Chart
Bulbasaur’s base catch rate is 20%, same as Pikachu’s catch rate. This means Bulbasaur will be more difficult to catch than Dratini during the Community Day, despite most players having Gold GRASS and POISON medals.
We prepared a table for common Bulbasaur catch scenarios. Assumes that you have double gold medals and that throws are curved:
|Normal||Nice||30% – 36%|
|Great||37% – 45%|
|Excellent||45% – 50%|
|Great||Nice||41% – 49%|
|Great||50% – 59%|
|Excellent||60% – 65%|
|Ultra||Nice||50% – 59%|
|Great||60% – 69%|
|Excellent||70% – 75%|
Tips and Notes
Bulbasaur Has a Base Flee rate of 10%
“Great” Curve throw + Great or Ultra Ball = Less than 5% flee, even at Level 35 with a worst possible throw, the flee rate goes up to 17% at level 35.
Burn Through That Incense!
Community Day is the perfect time to dust off those incense and use them! Incense spawns will be mostly Bulbasaur (based on the last community day).
Set the Pokemon Go Plus with only Spin PokeStops
On average, the Go+ has a less 50% chance of catching a 320CP or lower Bulbasaur. And a less than 40% Chance on a 540CP or lower Dratini.
From the past 2 Community Day, it is noted that Shiny Family is released on the Community Day. If released here’s how Shiny Bulbasaur Family looks like.
