Today, Niantic has revealed another another Safari Zone, this time in Sentosa, an island off the coast of Singapore recognized for being a gorgeous resort with a variety of entertaining activities.
Pokémon GO Safari Zone Sentosa Event is Here!
Safari Zone Sentosa is a five-day event taking place from April 18th to April 22nd, 2019 in Sentosa, Singapore. Based on the cover art, featured Pokémon include the regional Tropius, the regular Unown, Lapras, Shuckle, Dratini, and Alolan Exeggutor.
Updated to include information found from the Sentosa official website, and to link to the registration page.

Like with previous Safari Zone events, there is no official word on whether or not a shiny will be released with this Safari Zone, or which of the featured Pokémon it will be. That being said, Sentosa's website claims that Shiny Shuckle will be the next shiny to appear, which makes sense given that Alolan Exeggutor is a frequent boosted rare spawn and Lapras is a widely boosted rare spawn.
Update: On April 17th Shiny Shuckle was seen in Singapore at Safari Zone Sentosa where Shuckle spawns increased for approximately 30 minutes.

About event tickets
Tickets are now available for registration, and will be used for entry to the event. These tickets have the following qualities:
- Are limited to one day and for one trainer, although up to 3 people can register as a group.
- Are required to see the event spawns, in this case regionals like Tropius, and Pokéstops
Keep in mind trainers, that this is a selection based event, so you may or may not get a ticket even if you register in time. You will get an email confirmation if you do on the 11th of March, so be on the lookout.
How to register
- Step 1: Register at the prior link, between the 5th and 7th of March for any preferred day.
- Step 2: Those that are accepted will get an email on the 11th of March to notify them, and another email later on with the QR Code ticket.
- Step 3: Print the QR code.
- Step 4: Spin the event PokéStops titled Resorts World Sentosa or Palawan Green, and then scan your QR code.
- Step 5: You are done now, explore the island to search for the regionals and possible shiny Pokémon, as well as make sure to use any of the preferred modes of transport.
For folks without tickets
If you did not obtain a ticket to the Pokémon GO Safari Zone in Sentosa, don't be too concerned; although you will lose out on certain spawns and special PokéStops, the general area will witness a shift in spawning and will be a fun event even for those outside the region. Also, previous Safari Zone events have included a shiny potential Pokémon, such as Psyduck, Wingull, Roselia, Plusle, and Minun, and it seems that this will be the case with Shuckle. Keep a look out for those in other regions of the globe!
It's been a few years since Pokémon GO was launched into the wild, but the augmented reality smartphone game is still highly popular here. So much so that a special Pokémon GO Safari Zone event hosted last month on the resort island of Sentosa drew over 95,000 eager participants from all around the globe looking to capture some uncommon pocket monsters.
The five-day event was a smashing success, according to figures revealed yesterday by the official Pokémon GO team. Trainers encountered rarities such as Tropius (that Grass/Flying-type Pokémon introduced during the Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald era) and shiny versions of Shuckle (apparently notorious for having low attack levels) at the first ever Pokémon GO Safari Zone in Southeast Asia, which ran from April 18 to April 22.
Fans of Pokémon GO, rejoice! From April 18 to 22, 2019, Sentosa will be host to Southeast Asia's first Pokémon GO Safari Zone! You'll be able to catch your favorite Pokémon, including region-exclusive Pokémon!
Trainers can anticipate many PokéStops to stock up on supplies for a once-in-a-lifetime journey, as well as rare, shiny, and never-before-seen Pokémon wandering throughout Sentosa, such as the region-specific Tropius, shiny Shuckle, Unown, and more!
How to take part?
Head over to the registration site from 5 to 7 March 2019.
Participate as an individual or as part of a group of up to three candidates. Around 100,000 free tickets will be distributed across the five-day event (you will be asked to choose a preferred date), and a poll will be used to select attendees.
What happens if you are selected?
On 11 March 2019, notice emails will be issued to chosen Trainers, followed by another email on 12 April 2019 including a QR code that acts as an event ticket.
To allow as many trainers as possible to participate, participation in the event is restricted to the day specified in the confirmation email.
What if you are not selected?
Over the Good Friday long holiday weekend, all visitors to Sentosa will be able to enjoy exceptional Pokemon experiences! There will be a 6-meter-tall Lapras inflatable in the water, as well as Meet & Greet sessions with Pikachu and the chance to get your hands on special Pokemon goodies!
