Limited time registration for South-east Asia’s first Pokemon Go Safari Zone – taking place from April 18-22, 2019 – is now open.
Interested players will need to register their interest and select their preferred date of play on the event website: safarizone.sentosa.com.sg from now till March 7. Fans can bid for places as an individual or in a group of up to three applicants. Over 100,000 places will be available for free across the five-day event, and a ballot will be held to select participants.
Organised by the Sentosa Development Corporation in collaboration with Niantic and The Pokemon Company, Pokemon Go Safari Zone, Sentosa will see players hunting their favourite Pokemon, including region-exclusive Pokemon, through the island’s beaches and past the island’s attractions, from the Sentosa Boardwalk to Tanjong Beach.
In a statement, Sentosa said fans can expect multiple PokeStops where they can stock up on supplies, as well as rare Pokemon such as the region-specific Tropius, shiny Shuckle, Unown and more.
While on the journey to catch ’em all, players can snap photos with Pokemon at various photo points across the island. At team rest areas, they can mingle, swap tips, trade Pokemon with fellow trainers from Instinct, Mystic and Valor.
Selected trainers will receive a notification email from March 11, 2019, and another email on a later date containing a QR code that serves as a ticket to the event. Participation in the event is limited to the day stated in the confirmation email, in order to give as many trainers a chance to take part.
For trainers living in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, travel agencies JTB and Panorama-JTB will be providing 3D2N Stay & Play tour packages which come with a guaranteed ticket to join Pokemon Go Safari Zone, Sentosa!
For each day of the event, 200 packages will be up for grabs on a first come first served basis. For more information on these packages, visit JTB Philippines, JTB Malaysia, Panorama-JTB, and JTB Thailand from March 7.
Trainers without a QR code can still enjoy normal gameplay at Sentosa during the event period.
