The event was free and lasted between Wednesday, August 29, and lasted until Sunday, September 2 (JST) in Yokosuka City in Kanagawa Prefecture. Three city parks (Mikasa, Verny, and Kurihama) were participating in this special event. Trainers were able to find Pokémon not normally seen in Japan, such as the Grass- and Flying-type Pokémon Tropius, Unown, and more. While there are many exciting Pokémon to catch throughout the event, Raid Battles were be available at the event locations.

The Yokosuka Pokémon GO Safari Zone event was held over the course of five days, but gameplay was designed to be a single-day experience. In order to give as many Trainers as possible the chance to take part, participation was limited to the day listed on each ticket. If a Trainer somehow managed to obtain multiple tickets, they were only able to find special Pokémon on the day the first ticket was claimed.

In celebration of the Yokosuka Pokémon GO Safari Zone event, Pokémon such as Feebas and Torchic were found more often throughout Japan.
