The Safari Zone event in Pokémon GO: Taipei got off to a fantastic start with Trainers from Taiwan and beyond arriving to interact with other Trainers and participate in event activities.

The final exploration challenge features the Water-type Winged Fish Pokémon, Finneon, which Trainers can earn encounters with after completing in-game tasks. We have listed the tasks available for the Exploration Challenge and the rewards to be obtained in Pokémon GO.

As Trainers can be awarded Finneon encounters when completing Exploration Challenge tasks, there is a chance that these encounters will also spawn a Shiny Finneon in Safari Zone: Taipei. Similarly, trainers can upgrade Finneon to Lumineon to 50 Finneon Candies should they catch enough Finneon in this event.

Finneon will appear in Wild Encounters in his shiny form alongside other Pokemon like Unown T, P, and E and the three event-exclusive Pikachu variants. This event experience is only available to people attending the Safari Zone: Taipei event in person throughout the weekend.

To ensure trainers can successfully catch the Winged Fish Pokemon, they should ensure they have enough Poké Balls in inventory and use their Berries wisely to simplify this process. Finally, Trainers should visit the various spawn locations to further guarantee encounters with Finneon and use a few Nice and Curveball throws for good measure.

The Safari Zone: Taipei event is available to attend in person at Da’an Forest Park until October 23, 2022 at 6 p.m. local time. Likewise, the in-game Halloween event is ongoing for all Trainers until November 1, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. local time.
