The next Pokémon GO Safari Zone will be held in Goyang, South Korea.

Safari Zones are special reserves in Pokémon games that allow players to catch special, rare wild Pokémon from a specific region. Pokémon GO brings this concept into the real world, as Pokémon GO Safari Zones are held all over the world, allowing players to enter the area for a small price to catch a variety of rare Pokémon.

The next Pokémon GO Safari Zone will be held at Ilsang Lake Park in Goyang, South Korea. The event will be hosted from September 23 to 25, and players can visit the area from 12pm to 6pm for ₩1600 (around $12), or from 9am for ₩24000 (around $18). Here's everything more players need to know about the event.
