Pokemon Go’s Bulbasaur Community Day Classic Special Research story has arrived, meaning there’s a new set of tasks for players to complete to earn some great rewards.

Trainers have already enjoyed January’s main Community Day, which featured the Hoenn region’s Spheal as a headliner, but Niantic are also treating us to another special event this month: The first-ever Community Day Classic!

The headliner of this throwback event is Bulbasaur, the Kanto region’s beloved Grass-type starter, with players able to catch hundreds of the creature and evolve it into a Venusaur that knows the event-exclusive move Frenzy Plant.

As with all Pokemon Go Community Day events, there’s also a Special Research story to enjoy, with plenty of rewards on offer for Trainers who manage to complete every task – and you can find them all in this guide.
