Pokemon Goes Taiwan
You will be pleased to know that the Lantern Festival is completely free. Unlike Safari Zone, this will be an epic, city-wide event. As for Pokemons, you can expect to see Electrike, Mareep and other similar electric beasts. Additionally, you may also encounter various bug Pokemons such as Illumise and Volbeat. Illumise is a particularly interesting choice, as it usually chills in South and North America, and Africa. Lastly, you will have the opportunity to capture Unown L – the rarest type of Pokemon, while soaking on the beautiful songs of Chimecho. What's not to love?
What About Safari Zones?
The first Safari Zone event will happen in Tower Grove Park in St. Louis. This is admission only event, with tickets ranging between $ 12 and $18. In park, you will be chasing Mankey, Snivy, Ferroseed, and Teddirusa. Chatot, a Pokemon usually reserved for South America, will also be making its appearance. If you are lucky, you may find Unown S just snooping around.
2020 is the first year in which the UK will be a part of Safari Zone. It will work identically to the first event, with early access tickets going for £18, and regular ones for £12. In the wild, you will find Krabby, Dratini, Oshawott, and Chinchou. Relicanth, a pokemon that's originally from the Pacific Islands, will be making am exclusive appearance. Make sure to explore every part of Sefton Park, as there's a chance you will encounter Unown V.
Unfortunately, the details for the 3rd Safari Zone event are still unknown. However, once they are out, they will appear right here.
