Isaac and his older brothers Kian and Callan all love playing the game Pokémon GO on their smartphones.

If you have not heard of Pokémon GO, it is an augmented reality mobile game, available on App Store and Google Play, which allows you to catch and battle Pokémon as you walk around outside and encourages outdoor exercise and walks, which is particularly important for a generation who would rather be inside gaming.

This weekend we were booked to take part in the first ever Pokémon GO Safari event in the UK at Sefton Park in Liverpool, which was understandably postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

However, in good news for those who were booked to attend, you can still take part this weekend, if you opted to keep your tickets and use them for the rescheduled event.

This weekend, anyone with a Safari Zone ticket will have access to the Safari Zone Pokemon encounters, as well as the Special Research during the original scheduled event hours, to be used from home for the day(s) they booked.

Plus, if you also booked the City Explorer Pass add-on, which would have allowed you to take to the streets of Liverpool to take in more Explorer Raids, Field Research takes and more, these will also be honoured in your own location.

There is an increased Incense and Lure Module duration, as well as the reduced Egg Hatch Distance, which will be activated globally during the original event weekend, in your local time. Only ticket holders will be able to experience this bonus event.
