Pokémon Go Makes its First Safari Zone Stop in South America Later This Month

Pokémon Go's outdoor Safari Zone get-togethers are making their way across the planet with a weekend-long event scheduled for Guaíbi, Brazil.

It seems that Brazilian trainers are in for a treat this month as a Pokémon Go Safari Zone on its way, marking the first time that one of these popular events will take place on South American soil.

Pokémon Go’s Safari Zones are events that see thousands of people flocking to a single area in order to catch wild pokémon as a group. Although they take place at designated locations, players worldwide can also join in the fun.

This time around, the Safari Zone will be taking place along the riverbanks of Guaíba in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Those who plan on making the trip for the event can rest assured that they will get the chance to enjoy the metropolitan surroundings and the city’s rich history.

The event will see a number of wild pokémon gathering in the Guaíba area including water/rock type Relicanth, spooky generation 2 psychic type Unown, and classic water type Psyduck. For those who can’t make it to Porto Alegre however, there will be an increase in Psyduck internationally throughout the weekend.

The Brazilian Safari Zone will take place in Guaíba from January 25 to January 27, 2019. Tickets for the event can be picked up for free, but are in limited supply.

Pokémon Go is available now on iOS and Android. The popular mobile app can also be used in conjunction with the latest installments in the long-running franchise; Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Each of which can be purchased via Amazon.
