To continue the pink Pokémon festivities in celebration of Valentine’s Day, there will be a Raid Day featuring Lickitung on Saturday, February 15, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in your local time zone! Lickitung will be in four-star raids and know Body Slam! You can receive up to five Raid Passes at no cost during the event by spinning Photo Discs at Gyms.

The City Explorer Pass will be £8 and will be available for purchase only along with a Safari Zone ticket. It cannot be purchased after a ticket order is complete and is not eligible for refunds or transfers.

With the City Explorer Pass, you’ll be able to take part in City Explorer Raids, hatch Eggs faster throughout Liverpool, and access other exclusive bonuses for the full event weekend. City Explorers will enjoy the following benefits.

  • 10 City Explorer Raids on a 72-hour timer at iconic city locations that will be chosen in partnership with the City of Liverpool. These raids will be accessible only by City Explorers.
  • 1/2 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators within the city.
  • Exclusive Field Research tasks will be granted by PokéStops throughout the city.
  • Regular Lure Modules will last four hours if placed by City Explorers within the city. All Trainers will benefit from those four-hour Lure Modules, not just City Explorers.
  • Increased Incense duration within the city.

The City Explorer Pass gameplay experience will last the full weekend, from Friday, April 17, at 6:00 a.m. to Sunday, April 19, at 10:00 p.m. GMT. We know that Trainers come to our Safari Zones from all over to experience a special one-day Pokémon GO live event. By offering an additional experience that spans the entire weekend, we hope that City Explorers and their friends can embark on even more adventures throughout the host city. We’re excited to bring Pokémon GO adventures to the whole area and to explore the city together!

Are you ready to take in the fresh ocean air, Trainers and City Explorers to-be? Be sure to log in to Pokémon GO on Friday, February 14, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. GMT if you want to purchase a ticket to Safari Zone Liverpool along with a City Explorer Pass!
