The Pokémon GO Safari Zone is a recurrent, regional event that has already occurred across the world. [1] It has been hosted throughout various countries within the Americas, Europe and Asia such as France, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Japan and Taiwan.

The common feature of Safari Zone events is that, they give Trainers the possibility to catch region-exclusive Pokémon that aren't "native" for region where the event is hosted. Additionally, there is increased spawnrate of selected Pokémon and Unown.

Due to coronavirus outbreak, Safari Zones of St. Louis, Liverpool and Philadelphia were postponed.[2]

First part:

Trainer! Thank goodness you made it to this important research site.

I came to study Pokémon that commonly appear in this area, but it seems I need your help! The species of Pokémon I've observed today don't normally appear around here. What a strange occurrence!

Would you be willing to travel throughout the park and perform some tasks for me? With all these wild Pokémon around, it almost feels like a safari!

Please complete the following research tasks:

Second part:

Wow, great work today! In addition to completing some insightful research, you've skillfully helped me document the amazing nature around us and the fascinating migration patterns that Pokémon follow. I have a feeling there's even more to discover out here!

The results of your work have produced an awesome amount of Stardust. Perhaps you could find good use for it in powering up or trading a Pokémon! Enjoy, Trainer!
