Niantic has announced that, after the issues encountered at Pokémon GO Fest, they have chosen to delay the Safari Zone events that were to take place across Europe.

That will see the events scheduled for August 5th in Copenhagen and Prague as well as for August 12th in Stockholm and Amsterdam postponed until later in the year.

Although, the events planned for August 14th in Japan and September 16th in France, Spain and Germany will still go ahead.

“In order to guarantee the best possible gameplay experience for European Trainers, we have decided to postpone the events in Europe scheduled for August 5 (Copenhagen and Prague) and August 12 (Stockholm and Amsterdam) until a date later in the Fall,” Niantic announced in an update.

“No other scheduled events are affected including the event scheduled for Yokohama, Japan on August 14 and the events scheduled for September 16 in France, Spain, and Germany.

“We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you understand that our priority is to ensure a great experience for Pokémon GO Trainers in Europe and around the world. Trainers that might have questions regarding the Safari Zone events should visit the help center.

“As a special surprise, we understand that some Pokémon that are rarely seen in Europe will be appearing soon in certain European cities for a brief time. Keep your eyes peeled!”
