Pokemon Go Safari Zone news: New event starts today, probably won’t include Mewtwo Raids
As confirmed by Niantic earlier this year, the new Pokemon Go Safari Zone events are set to launch today in Europe.
On September 16, official Pokemon Go Safari Zone activities will be taking place at Unibail-Rodamco Shopping Centres located at CentrO in Oberhausen (Germany), Les Quatre Temps in Paris (France) and La Maquinista in Barcelona (Spain).
And while there will be a few eye-catching rewards for hardcore fans, there’s probably very little chance of a Mewtwo Ex-Raid.
Niantic have confirmed that Gym and Raid Battles will not be available at these shopping centres during these events.
This would suggest that Niantic are not planning on launching any new Legendary-types, like they did in Chicago and Yokohama.
However, new in-game medals and special 2 km Eggs will be available from various PokeStops found at each of these shopping centres.
And one of the biggest boosts will be the Pocket Monsters spawning during these new events.
Lures will be activated all day at each PokeStop at the event, which willl see the likes of Kangaskhan, Chansey, Larvitar, and others popping up throughout the day.
Trainers in the area may even get to catch a few Shiny Pikachu, Shiny Magikarp, and various forms of Unown.
“The Pokémon Go Safari Zone events will give Trainers the chance to meet one another and catch up in the team lounges,” a message from Niantic explains.
“Attendees will also receive Trainer kits for joining the day’s Pokémon-catching activities. Throughout each of the participating shopping centers, special offers for Pokémon GO Trainers will be available in select stores.
“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.”
For those who don’t manage to nab a ticket, some of the Pokemon found at the Pokémon Go Safari Zones events will be spawning throughout the city where the shopping centre is located.
