Pokémon GO City Safari is coming to Seoul, South Korea on October 7 and 8, 2023! Set off on a new city-wide adventure as you discover the vibrant stories, new friends, and exciting Pokémon waiting for you in Seoul!

Whether you’re a resident of Seoul or a first-time visitor, your Pokémon GO City Safari will take you across the city in an all-new way—from historic landmarks to local favorites, get ready for a taste of the city with Pokémon GO by your side!

Say “안녕(Annyeong)” to Seoul in a citywide adventure!

Find a whole city of adventure waiting for you when you embark on a Pokémon GO City Safari! Encounter themed wild Pokémon throughout the entire city, complete City Safari-exclusive Special Research, and explore the rich culture in and around Seoul!

There’s no right or wrong way to enjoy a City Safari! This brand-new open format allows Trainers to enjoy the city-wide experiences at their own pace, catching Pokémon and making friends with other Trainers along the way.

Trainers can either purchase a ticket for one day of the two-day event or a one-day ticket with an additional second day add-on. One-day tickets are ₩11,000 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency, plus any applicable taxes and fees) and are available for purchase on the Pokémon GO City Safari website. You will see “Tickets Available” next to the Pokémon GO City Safari: Seoul event ticket if it hasn’t sold out yet. Event gameplay will be available only at the date, time, and location specified on your ticket.
