Pricing and other information on how to buy tickets is coming at a later date, so if you're interested, stay tuned, as we'll be sure to cover all the details you'll need in order to sign up and participate.

During this event, fast Pokémon will be showing up far more often, while unique field research will be made available for Trainers throughout the day. If you're in Canada but you won't be able to go the event, don't worry - the Pokémon featured in the Safari Zone Montreal will be appearing more frequently all over Canada.

Recently, Pokémon storage was finally increased to 2,500, so Trainers have plenty of space to store all of the different Pokémon they are catching. Additionally, don't forget that there's currently a crisis in the world of Pokémon GO as the Team Rocket invasion is still well underway. If you haven't gotten in on that major event yet, be sure to jump on it soon.
