    September 27, 2020: Notice!! Swarms are currently disabled! While they may be announced in chat, swarms won't actually work until the bug is fixed. In the meantime you can visit Swarma in jail, who is imprisoned for a crime they didn't commit.

    Hello, this is the Safari Zone Guide!

    I also have a guide about gyms, the elite four and the bird quest here.

    And for basically any other information, here is the Survival Guide Information FAQ!

    This guide is definitely a work in progress. If you have any information you'd like to contribute, please leave a comment below or message me on discord!

    -------------------------
    Safari Zone Basics
    -------------------------
    The Safari Zone is a fun place to go try to catch rare and powerful pokemon! This is the only place you can catch Hidden Ability pokemon in the wild!

    It is located on the story server, and all you have to do is follow the path past the pokemon center and out of /spawn.

    To start, you must talk to the Entrance Safari Ranger (157, 17) and pay an entry fee of 5000 coins.
    If Ranger Swarma (178,18) is standing behind the Entrance Ranger, it is highly recommend that you talk to them. Please see the Swarm section for more details!

    Once you've paid, you'll receive 30 Safari Balls. These do NOT go into your inventory, instead they will appear in the menu when you encounter pokemon.

    To find pokemon, simply find a patch of grass and run around it until a pokemon appears. (Or, find a lake and swim around in it). You can also jump in the grass, which definitely helps conserve food, but encounters might show up less often. I'm not really sure.

    Each patch of grass has a different set of pokemon found in them, so see the Map section for all the grass patches and their contents. In addition, the time of day also affects what pokemon appear. So, each patch of grass also has a different encounter-table for Day and Night (based on the position of Minecraft's Sun and Moon).

    When you encounter a pokemon you can throw a pokeball at it and hope to catch it! Or, if you aren't interested in the pokemon, you can simply run away.

    Keep in mind, that after every other action, the pokemon has a chance to flee! Generally, if you encounter a pokemon you want, you will just throw pokeballs at it until either it catches or the pokemon decides to run. It's all up to luck!

    You can also move closer, which makes more likely that a pokeball will succeed, but also makes it more likely for the pokemon to run away! I'm not sure if it's worth it!
    You can also throw pokeblocks, which presumably makes pokemon less likely to run, but also makes it less likely for a pokeball to succeed. You also have to actually have pokeblocks in your inventory to do this. I'm not sure if this is worth it either.

    You can stay in the Safari Zone for as long as you want! But once you have used the last of your 30 Safari Balls, your run will end, you will be brought back to the Entrance Ranger, and you will have to pay another 5000 coins to participate again. Your run will also end if you ever leave the Safari Zone, whether it be from the server's daily reboot, your game crashing, or you simply being tired and walking out.

    Swarms
    -----------
    About every two hours, a swarm event will be announced in the story server. Regular servers will not receive this notification. While a swarm event is active, Ranger Swarma (178,18) can be found standing behind the Entrance Ranger. This NPC vanishes whenever a swarm is inactive.

    Swarm is a period of time in which a certain species of pokemon becomes more common in the safari zone. You won't find out which species of pokemon it is until a swarm actually starts.

    The exact details of timing is still uncertain, but it seems that swarms last about an hour and there is about 1.5 hours until the next swarm starts.

    These swarm pokemon won't appear in every grass patch, so you'll have to search around and hope you find a patch that actually has the swarm in it!
    Keep in mind, that just because a swarm pokemon is more common, they may still be rare and have low encounter rates.

    Swarm pokemon will NOT appear if you have not talked to Ranger Swarma.

    With each swarm, the first right click on Swarma will have them explain what a swarm is. You can click SKIP in your chat log in order to skip this dialogue, since it is the same each time. It is at this point that swarm pokemon will start appearing for you. However, it is very important for you to right click AGAIN.

    The second right click on Swarma will have them say which species of pokemon is swarming! Then Swarma will offer you a challenge to catch either one, two or three of that pokemon, depending on its rarity! The game will NOT keep track of how many you've caught until after you've talked to Swarma the second time.

    Once you've caught enough of the swarm pokemon, return to Swarma and right click to receive your reward! These are definitely worth doing if you're heading into the safari zone, as they will end up refunding your admission fee if completed!
    Catch 3: 5000 coins, 10 tokens, 5000 trainer exp
    Catch 2: 7500 coins, 15 tokens, 7500 trainer exp
    Catch 1: 15000 coins, 20 tokens, 15000 trainer exp

    Map and Patch Encounters

    As you can see, there is a Main Area and a Secret Area. There is large hole in the fence that leads between the two areas. I'm going to be splitting the grass patches (and lakes) between the two sections. The four most popular safari zone pokemon have been marked on the map, but everything will be listed below. Other popular and notable pokemon have been bolded.

    Keep in mind, (with exception of Ditto and Larvitar), everything is based on information confirmed after September 12th (the most recent safari zone update). Also "tbd" stands for "to be determined." If you have any pokemon to add to these lists, please let me know, and make sure to mention which area and patch it is in, and whether it was night or day.
