The Pokémon GO Safari Zone Events that were scheduled to take place across Europe on August 5th (Copenhagen and Prague) and August 12th (Stockholm and Amsterdam) have officially been postponed.

No doubt in reaction to the recent Pokémon GO Fest in Chicago, Niantic has decided to delay the events until an undecided, later date in the Fall. However, the September 16th Safari Event (Oberhausen, Paris, and Barcelona) and the Yokohama Pikachu Outbreak event on August 16th will continue as planned.

To compensate, Niantic will have Pokémon spawns that are rarely seen in Europe to appear in game in certain European cities for a brief time. You can read the announcement in full at their official Pokémon GO blog.

Do you think Niantic is making the right move to postpone, and regroup to “to guarantee the best possible gameplay experience for European Trainers?” Were you planning on going to one of the cancelled events?
