Thanks for exploring Pokémon GO Safari Zone Liverpool!


Over 20,000 Trainers participated in the Pokémon GO Safari Zone event in Liverpool city this past weekend—the first major real-world Pokémon GO event since late 2019! Between the Trainers who showed up in person at Sefton Park and those who enjoyed the event remotely, participants walked 372,000 km and caught 5.93 million Pokémon. Bravo!

At Sefton Park, Trainers were able to enjoy the beautiful Liverpool landscape and its stunning waterside—the perfect backdrop for the maritime- and water-themed Safari Zone event—while encountering Pokémon like Chinchou, Relicanth, and Unown E, I, L, O, P, R, and V.

For the first time at a Safari Zone event, a massive inflatable Snorlax joined the festivities, giving attendees a fun photo opportunity to remember the event by. Pikachu and Eevee mascots returned to meet and greet their friends and fans, too! Attendees were also able to purchase an exclusive Safari Zone T-shirt, which came with a matching in-game avatar item. Plus, some lucky Trainers were able to get their hands on the Professor Willow trading card!

We’ve come a long way since Safari Zone Liverpool’s original announcement in 2020, and we’re grateful to all of you for your patience and understanding in the meantime. Thank you for taking part—either in person or remotely. Our events are special because you make them special!
