The previously postponed Pokémon GO Safari Zone events in Europe are now just around the corner!

On September 16, official Pokémon GO Safari Zone activities will be taking place at Unibail-Rodamco Shopping Centers located in CentrO in Oberhausen (Germany), Les Quatre Temps in Paris (France) and La Maquinista in Barcelona (Spain).

At each Pokémon GO Safari Zone event, ticket holder Trainers will be able to…

  • Receive special 2 km Eggs from the various PokéStops found at each of these shopping centers
  • Take advantage of Lures that will be activated all day at each PokéStop at the event
  • Enjoy higher spawn rates of rare Pokemon such as Kangaskhan, Chansey, Larvitar, Shiny Pikachu, Shiny Magikarp, and various forms of Unown
  • Get a special in-game medal and an in-real-life “Trainer Kit”
  • Meet and catch up with your fellow trainers in team lounges

However, in order to optimize the experience for all Trainers attending, Gym and Raid Battles will not be available at these shopping centers during the events.

Trainers will soon be able to reserve free, nontransferable tickets to each of the Pokémon GO Safari Zone events taking place on September 16. To receive a QR Code, which is required to participate in the event, the person who claims the ticket must be over the age of 13 and be present with a valid photo ID. Trainers who aren’t able to get tickets will be able to discover and catch some of the Pokémon found at the Pokémon GO Safari Zones events throughout the city where the shopping centers are located.
