The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic shut down a lot of things, including many ones of Pokémon GO's biggest events. Pokémon GO's Safari Zone was slated to be huge celebrations allowing Pokémon GO fans to connect with one another while simultaneously participating in a massive live event.
On a more light-hearted note, due to the pandemic Niantic adjusted the event slightly. No players can participate in these events from anywhere in the world so long as they have a ticket. All ticket holders going to the in-person must also RSVP.
As for where these events are being held, there will still be held where they originally going to be held last year.
