Pokémon GO developer Niantic has announced a handful of large-scale community events set to take place throughout the first half of the year.
Four events have been detailed so far, all taking place between February and May of 2020. The majority of these are Pokémon GO Safari Zone events, which have traditionally allowed attendees to snag region-exclusive Pokémon not usually available in their area. Here's the full list so far:
- Taiwan Lantern Festival in Taichung - February 6-9
- Pokémon GO Safari Zone St. Louis - March 27-29 (Tickets will go live starting January 24 at 8:00 AM CT)
- Pokémon GO Safari Zone Liverpool - April 17-19 (More information about tickets will be announced soon)
- Pokémon GO Safari Zone Philadelphia - May 8-10 (More information about tickets will be announced soon)
Niantic has also revealed that similar events held across 2019, including Pokémon GO Fest Chicago, helped to drive an estimated $249 million in tourism revenue for the cities in which they appeared. These events have regularly attracted tens of thousands of Pokémon fans, many of whom travelled across the globe to take part.
Do you happen to live near any of these events? Will you try to attend? Let us know in the comments below.
SAFARI ZONE IN PHILLY?!
Count me in
Neat, the UK is finally getting a Safari Zone.
It's quite far from home though, so I'll pass.
Wow, I'm actually pseudo-close to one of the events! Close enough to consider going at least.
Finally! St. Louis is getting something Nintendo related.
Buzzing about this! The Liverpool safari zone is about 10 minutes walk from me 😁
Hmm, so Liverpool is about 4-5 hours by train. Question is whether I travel on the day or find somewhere to stay overnight.
Oooh, never been to Liverpool before. Sounds like a good excuse!
Here's hoping for another canadian one later in the year
