Pokemon GO Safari Zone Philadelphia: 3 Things to Know
It Spans a Whole Weekend
This event will take place from May 8-10 in the Fairmount Park of Philadelphia. Although, there are specific "City Explorer" events that take place outside the main park area. Players will have the chance to explore the whole city while finding their favorite Pokemon and meeting other trainers.
City Explorer Pass
For the first time ever, Pokemon GO players won't have to be confined to a park to experience the event they signed up for. The separately-sold "City Explorer Pass" allows trainers to head outside Fairmount Park to join raids, catch legendaries, find this event's featured Pokemon and experience much more. The focus of this pass is to truly let players enjoy the city they've decided to visit.
The European regional Pokemon Mr. Mime will be making an appearance during this event alongside several others including: Rufflet and Braviary, Unown P, and shiny Voltorb. Additionally, players can encounter Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno in five-star "City Explorer" raids at iconic locations in the city.
