Celebrating South America’s First Pokémon GO Safari Zone!


Thank you so much for visiting the Porto Alegre Safari Zone throughout the three-day event last weekend! We are astounded by the Trainers who journeyed from around the world to enjoy our very first Safari Zone in Brazil.

Throughout the weekend, tens of thousands of Trainers visited the recently revitalized Guaíba riverbank in Porto Alegre. Trainers from all over the world socialized and played together in Team Lounges while enjoying refreshing river breezes in the warm summer weather.

Whether relaxing while grabbing a bite to eat from local food vendors near the Gasômetro or hatching Eggs around the Marinha do Brasil park, Trainers caught Relicanth and Unown as they explored the Porto Alegre Safari Zone. Psyduck, Bagon, Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup appeared more often, too—not only in the Safari Zone but also all over Brazil in celebration of this special event! Over the weekend, Shiny Psyduck appeared around the world, allowing our global Trainers to join in the fun.

Along with being our premier Safari Zone in Brazil, this was also our very first time hosting a Pokémon GO Safari Zone in South America. We are so delighted that Trainers were able to enjoy this momentous event with us.

Stay tuned for details about our upcoming events—we’re excited for what’s to come, and we’d love for you to join us on the journey ahead! Until then, let’s GO!
