|Safari Zone 1|
Safari Zone 1 is the first of seven Safari Zones and is located in Onega Town on the Vesryn Mainland. The zones are unique in that no Pokémon battles are permitted and they feature several rare Pokémon, some of whom cannot be found outside the zone. Safari Zone 1 hosts a forest and grassland biome and features a large lake in the northwest corner.
An attendant guards the entrance between Onega Town and the zone, charging 500 per visit. He also confiscates the player's Pokémon for the duration of their visit and equips the player with Safari Balls, Rocks, and Bait to assist the player in capturing Pokémon.
Once inside, the player is free to roam through the grass or fish and surf the northwest lake in order to catch Pokémon. The player is limited to 600 steps and 30 safari balls per visit. The visit ends when the player runs out of either.
The best method for capturing Pokémon in the zone is to only use the Safari Balls, as both the bait and rock increase the chance of a Pokémon fleeing while doing little to nothing to assist in capturing them. However, the bait can occupy the Pokémon long enough to capture it.
TIP: Save before fighting Thundurus, as it is capable of fleeing and will not respawn if the player fails to catch it.
