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.

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 Pokémon Adventures manga

Red goes into the Safari Zone at the end of Meanwhile... Vileplume! and in Long Live the Nidoking! and A Hollow Victreebel in the Red, Green & Blue chapter. 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.

Pokémon

Red caught a lot of Pokémon at the Safari Zone, some to get out of trouble.

Despite the fact that he wasn't supposed to bring any Poké Balls, Red managed to smuggle one in and catch a Nidoqueen. The others were caught using the custom Safari Ball he was given.

In the anime

The Kanto Safari Zone appeared in an unreleased to America episode, EP035. It was unreleased due to excessive use of handguns throughout the episode, especially by the warden of the Safari Zone.

In this episode Ash catches his thirty Tauros in a challenge with Team Rocket to see who can catch the most pokémon.

Trivia

  • The Safari Zone's background music is the same as that when a Pokémon is evolving.
  • The Safari Zone is a location in Generation II, but is very minimally programmed into the game. It can only be accessed by changing the warp pointers when a room is entered, however, when it has been accessed, the area is unmistakably the entrance area, complete with music. It is apparently a leftover from the beta version of Pokémon Gold and Silver.[1]
