Niantic now running digital tour of Dortmund via new Pokémon GO AR Safari on Instagram

The first event in Professor Willow’s Global Research Challenge is now underway in Dortmund, Germany, during the Pokémon GO Safari Zone event from June 30 to July 1. While there is plenty to do in the Dortmund area during this free event, such as encountering Unown and Corsola throughout Westfalenpark and Raid Battles happening around the city, Trainers worldwide will be able to join in the fun. In addition to completing Field Research tasks provided by Professor Willow, Trainers all over the world are now seeing increased appearances of the Grass- and Poison-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, Roselia. For the first time, players now have a chance at catching Shiny Roselia sprouting purple flowers.

Professor Willow’s Global Challenge participants on June 30 and July 1 will also be able to unlock special bonuses, including another chance to encounter the Legendary Articuno. If all tasks are successfully completed during the Pokémon GO Safari Zone in Dortmund, a special Articuno Day event will take place on July 7. Participants will receive five free Raid Passes and Articuno will appear as a Raid Boss at Pokémon GO Gyms for three hours. Niantic has confirmed that there’s a chance it will be Shiny Articuno during this period. Pokémon GO Safari Zone Dortmund Research Tasks and rewards from July 2 to July 9 are as follows:
