Pokémon world locations

The Johto Safari Zone (Japanese: サファリゾーン Safari Zone) is a special Pokémon preserve where Trainers can capture certain types of Pokémon. The Johto Safari Zone made its debut appearance in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, where it was shown to be located northwest of Cianwood. It is located at the Safari Zone Gate, a bazaar that sprung up due to the Safari Zone's popularity. It is owned by Baoba, the owner of the former Kanto Safari Zone, which was, by then, made into a Pal Park by his son.

For PokémonDollar.png500, the player will receive 30 Safari Balls. Akin to previous Safari Zones, there is a large area to cover, but the six areas of the Zone can uniquely be rearranged to suit the player. Also, there is no time or step limit to how long the player can try to catch Pokémon. The only ways to leave are to retire, to walk back through the entrance or to run out of Safari Balls.

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, run away, and throw Mud. Throwing Bait makes a Pokémon less likely to run, but makes it harder to catch, while throwing Mud does the reverse, making it easier to catch but more likely to run.

Access to the Safari Zone is part of the storyline. When a player first arrives at Olivine City, the Gym is empty. The player must heal the Glitter Lighthouse's sick Ampharos, Amphy, to cause the Gym Leader to return to the Gym. Only then will Baoba phone the player and announce that the Safari Zone is open for business. Players can then traverse Routes 47 and 48 to get to the Safari Zone whenever they wish.

Details

This Safari Zone works identically to the Great Marsh: Pokémon are made easier or harder to catch by modifying the catch rate of a Pokémon. Each Pokémon appearing in the Safari Zone also has an escape rate, representing the probability that they flee from battle; a Pokémon's escape rate is identical across all Generation IV games (however, their escape rates are not defined in games which they cannot be found in their Great Marsh or Safari Zone). As a rule of thumb, Pokémon at higher evolutionary levels generally have lower escape rates.

At the start of an encounter, both the catch rate and escape rate are set to their species defaults. When Bait is thrown, it lowers the escape rate by one stage, but has a 90% chance of also lowering the catch rate by one stage. When Mud is thrown, it raises the catch rate by one stage, but has a 90% chance of raising the escape rate by one stage. Stages for catch rates and escape rates work identically to stat stages: they can be raised as high as +6 and as low as -6, where 0 is the starting stage; multipliers at each stat stage also work identically.

At the end of each turn, a random number between 0 and 255 is generated. If it is less than the modified stat stage, the Pokémon escapes.

Areas

The six areas of the Safari Zone

Like the Safari Zone in Hoenn and Great Marsh in Sinnoh, the Johto Safari Zone has six areas, which are inhabited by different Pokémon. A feature unique to this Safari Zone, however, is the customization of these areas. Each of the six areas may be placed in any arrangement the player desires. This is a useful function, as it means the player does not have to traverse to the furthest area from the entrance to get the Pokémon living in it. This is taken even further due to the fact that there are 10 unique defaults from the moment the Safari Zone is unlocked.

Customization happens on the Nintendo DS touch screen. By dragging and sliding the tiles with the stylus, the player can move them with ease. The exits to each area are arranged so that every conceivable arrangement of areas is possible: up to 2,985,984. In each specific area, the player can choose from several different objects and put up to 30 into the area, which can potentially draw out rarer Pokémon, Pokémon not found in the area, or Pokémon not found in the zone any other way. The specific layout of the Safari Zone may be shared by multiple players at one time, like other events in Generation IV, through mixing records or by using the Safari Zone Link.

Default area layouts

There are ten possible layouts that the areas can be arranged in by default when the player first reaches the Safari Zone. Between the ten default layouts, all of the areas are utilized at least once with the exceptions of the Desert and Rocky Beach areas; each default arrangement positions the Peak area right in front of the entrance. Six more areas can be added once Baoba's second challenge is assigned to the player.

Challenges

First Challenge

When the player first visits the Safari Zone, its owner, Baoba, will give the player their first challenge of finding and catching a Geodude inside of the Safari Zone. No matter which of the 10 possible default Safari Zone area set-ups is in use, the Peak Area where Geodude can be found is always the first area that the player enters.

Second Challenge

Three game-play hours after completion of the first challenge, Baoba will call the player and give them their second challenge. The point of this challenge is to get the player to use the Area Customizer, a machine that allows the player to move around and order the different areas of the Safari Zone. Using the Area Customizer to add the Desert Area, the player must catch a Sandshrew.

Blocks

After the player has both received the National Pokédex from Professor Oak and completed Baoba's second challenge, Baoba will eventually call the player to tell him or her, that he has come up with a new idea for the Safari Zone. After receiving this call, the player will then be able to place one block at a time of any of 5 categories of blocks inside of the Safari Zone, up to 30 blocks in one area at a time. Baoba will continue to call the player another three times after this giving the player 6 new blocks each time. There are 24 blocks in total, three of which are favored by Pokémon that live in grasslands, three which are favored by Pokémon that live in forests, three which are favored by Pokémon that live in rocky areas, three which are favored by Pokémon that live by the water and twelve others. Blocks that are favored by certain Pokémon can be used to draw out Pokémon that are not normally found in each area.

Block upgrades

Each area of the Safari Zone keeps a hidden count of how many days it has been used. Every ten days of use, a certain block type will be upgraded just for that area, and Baoba will call to notify the player of this. Once a block for a certain area is upgraded, the upgrade will not disappear if the player moves the area or takes away the blocks. When blocks are upgraded, they increase effectiveness. For example, a Plains block with no upgrades would count as one Plains block, but a Plains block with one upgrade would count as two Plains blocks. So, after 20 days of use, a particular zone's Plains and Forest blocks would each be worth 2, while the Peak and Waterside blocks would still be worth 1.

Day Block Upgrade
10 Plains Double block value
20 Forest
30 Peak
40 Waterside
50 Plains Triple block value
60 Forest
70 Peak
80 Waterside
100 Plains Quadruple block value
110 Forest
120 Peak
130 Waterside

Pokémon

The Pokémon found below are often impacted by the objects placed in the area. For example, Fearow will not appear in the Peak area unless there are five Forest objects placed in the Peak area. Spheal will not appear in the Peak area until the Peak Waterside objects have been upgraded, because it requires 35 Waterside objects, and each area can only contain 30 objects of each kind to start with. Also, Pokémon can need two types of objects. For example, Vigoroth needs Plains and Forest objects.

In all zones, there are 10 encounter slots which give to the Pokémon present a 10% chance to appear. All the Pokémon that appear due to blocks have a 10% chance to appear; however, some Pokémon can be in two slots, which gives them a 20% chances to appear.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Weavile Wobbles But It Won't Fall Down, Silver ventured to the newly opened Safari Zone after hearing about it from Clair. There he participated in a Safari Game, during which he was attacked by an Arbok and he countered its attack. In the midst of battle, Eusine stopped him and lectured him about the rules of the Safari Zone, which prohibit attacking the wild Pokémon. Silver, who just found out about Plates, showed Eusine a Plate but did not get any reaction out of him other than confusion. His actions were, however, seen by Petrel who attacked him and Eusine. During the following battle, Petrel revealed information about the Plates and that he defeated Lance. The battle ended as Petrel left. Some time after, Silver encountered Crystal, who was on a field trip with the children from Pokémon academy, and they decided to travel to Ecruteak City together.

Trivia

  • Johto did not have a Safari Zone in Generation II. However, an unused, incomplete Safari Zone map still exists in the coding of the Generation II games, accessible through the use of cheating devices. From its location on the map and the positioning of the return warps, it is assumed it was intended to be the Kanto Safari Zone three years later.
  • The number of Pokémon species that can be acquired in this Safari Zone is by far the largest quantity in the main series to date, and includes several species that were never before available in the wild, most notably Shelgon, Metang, Breloom, Vigoroth and Riolu.
  • This is the only Safari Zone which the player can customize.
  • This is the only Safari Zone not to put a limit on the number of steps a player can take before being forced out.
  • The two construction workers outside of the Safari Zone, in the Safari Zone Gate, imply that they are the ones who move the Safari Zone areas; they mention that most people would think a complicated system would be in place, as well as complaining about aches and pains.
  • Interestingly, this Safari Zone is located nearest to the city with the fifth Johto League Gym, Cianwood City. Both the Kanto Safari Zone and Great Marsh are also located in cities where the fifth Gym Leader is faced in their respective regions, though Crasher Wake only falls fifth in Pokémon Platinum.
