Pokémon world locations

The Safari Zone (Japanese: サファリゾーン Safari Zone) is a special Pokémon preserve where Trainers can enter to capture certain types of Pokémon. It is owned by Baoba.

For PokémonDollar.png500, the player will receive 30 Safari Balls. With a large area to cover, Trainers must plan out their destination so as to arrive in time to capture all the Pokémon they want.

During Generation I and Generation III, however, a sweepstakes is taking place to find a hidden house deep in the Safari Zone, called the Secret House. The winner of the sweepstakes receives HM03 (Surf).

When a wild Pokémon appears, no Pokémon may be sent out to battle it: catching Pokémon here, as in all Safari Zones, requires sheer luck. There are four options in the battle screen: Throw a Safari Ball, throw bait, throw a rock, and run away. Throwing bait makes a Pokémon less likely to run, but makes it harder to catch; while throwing a rock does the reverse, making it easier to catch but more likely to run. If the player takes too long to catch the Pokémon, it will automatically run away.

In Generation II, the Safari Zone has closed down while Baoba takes a vacation. In the contemporaneous Generation IV games, he has opened another one in Johto and Kanto's Pal Park can instead be found in this location.

In the anime

The Kanto Safari Zone appears only once in the anime: in The Legend of Dratini, an episode which aired in few countries outside of Japan.

In the anime, the Safari Zone is run by a gun-toting warden, Kaiser. Like in the games, Trainers are restricted to only thirty Safari Balls per challenge. It is explained that this is because of too many Trainers capturing all the rarest Pokémon too rapidly and due to searching for the Pokémon Dratini.

Ash captures thirty Tauros in his Safari challenge.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In the Red, Green & Blue chapter, Red visits the Safari Zone during Meanwhile... Vileplume!, Long Live the Nidoking! and A Hollow Victreebel. With the help of the two robots Pidgebot1 and Pidgebot2, Red goes through the jungle on a moving wooden plank. When he encounters two Nidoking fighting over a Nidoqueen, Red decided to capture a Nidoking. The Nidoking blocked the Poké Ball with its arm hitting the Nidoqueen straight on the head capturing the Nidoqueen. This made the Nidoking very angry. It began to rampage and crush everything. Red threw rocks at Nidoking, hurting it badly and making it even angry, but managed to escape.

Later, Red was eaten by a Victreebel (using Vine Whip). He was not digested, however; merely tied up for a feast in the near future. This feast would be to celebrate the evolution of Bellsprout and Weepinbell. Red and Pidgebot had an idea to use a Poké Flute to wake the Grass Pokémon up, and distracted them with a Poké Doll before escaping. Unfortunately, they ran straight into the Nidoking from earlier on. Using a caught Victreebel, Red was also able to capture the Nidoking.


Red captures several Pokémon in the Safari Zone. Despite the fact that he was not supposed to bring any regular Poké Balls, Red managed to smuggle one in and catch a Nidoqueen. The others were caught using the custom Safari Balls he was given.
