Pokémon GO fans, rejoice as Sentosa will be home to Southeast Asia’s first Pokémon GO Safari Zone from 18 to 22 April 2019!
Organised by the Sentosa Development Corporation in collaboration with Niantic and The Pokémon Company, Pokémon GO Safari Zone, SentosaTM will see players hunting their favourite Pokémon, including region-exclusive Pokémon, through the island’s golden beaches and past the island’s many attractions, from the Sentosa Boardwalk to Tanjong Beach!
Look forward to multiple PokéStops where fans can stock up on supplies for the adventure of a lifetime, as well as rare, shiny and never-before-seen Pokémon roaming around Sentosa, such as the region-specific Tropius, shiny Shuckle, Unown and more!
While on the journey to catch ‘em all, players can snap photos with their favourite Pokémon at various photo points across the island. They can also look forward to Team rest areas where they can mingle, swap tips, trade Pokémon with fellow trainers from Instinct, Mystic and Valor, and enjoy the all-round camaraderie Pokémon GO is known for! Plus, refuel at more than 120 dining options across Sentosa after a day full of adventure!
How to take part: Registration process
From 5 to 7 March 2019, interested players will need to register their interest and select their preferred date of play on the event website. 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.
Selected trainers will receive a notification email from 11 March 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.
Plus, for trainers living in 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, SentosaTM. 200 packages for each day of the event will be up for grabs on a first come first served basis.
For trainers who do not manage to obtain a QR code, fret not as you can still enjoy a day of fun at Sentosa and experience normal gameplay instead.
