The extremely popular Safari Zone event for Pokémon GO trainers is headed to Sentosa for the first such event in Southeast Asia! Set to be held from 18 to 22 April, the event will allow Pokémon GO trainers who register the chance to catch rarely-seen Pokemon at locations in Sentosa, like
Sentosa Boardwalk and Tanjong Beach.
During the event, trainers will be able to access event PokéStops to stock up on supplies, catch rare, shiny and never-before-seen Pokémon on Sentosa – such as the regional Tropius, shiny Shuckle, Unown, and more! It looks like Dratini and Lapras will see increased spawn rates too.
Registration for the event will take place from 5 to 7 March at the official website: safarizone.sentosa.com.sg. You can register individually or in groups of up to 3, and there will be more than 100,000 places available across the 5 days of the event. Registration will be a ballot, so if you must play in groups, please register in groups (and don’t end up like me in Japan).
Successful trainers will be notified by 11 April. Registration is free! You will get a second email with a QR code that serves as a ticket and turns on the special spawns for the event, which non-registered trainers (aka like me in Japan) cannot see. Participation in the event is limited to the day you registered for.
For our overseas trainers
For trainers living in Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, travel agencies JTB and Panorama-JTB will be providing 3D2N Stay & Play tour packages which come with a guaranteed ticket to join Pokemon GO Safari Zone, Sentosa. 200 packages for each day of the event will be up for grabs on a first come first served basis. For more information on these packages, visit JTB Philippines (https://www.jtbphilippines.com/), JTB Malaysia (https://www.jtbmalaysia.com/), Panorama-JTB (https://www.panorama-jtb.com/), and JTB Thailand (https://www.jtbthailand.com/th/home/) from 7 March.
(And if you’re like me in Japan) don’t worry, trainers without a QR code can still enjoy a day of fun at Sentosa, as they will experience normal gameplay.
Pokémon GO Safari Zone, Sentosa is organised by the Sentosa Development Corporation in collaboration with Niantic and The Pokémon Company.
