R/B/Y Safari Zone Mechanics

A staple of the Pokémon series since the originals is the Safari Zone: a special place with Pokémon that aren't found anywhere else (and some that are) where instead of getting to use your own Pokémon to weaken and capture them, you must employ more old-fashioned methods while the Pokémon may run at any moment. While they haven't been in every game, they shake up the usual routine of catching Pokémon and have had various interesting mechanics through the generations - however, the very most interesting has to be the original.

How It Works

In every Safari Zone, the player is unable to use their own Pokémon at all. Instead, when you encounter a Pokémon you have four options: throwing one of the limited number of Safari Balls you have; an aggressive action used to make the Pokémon easier to catch; an enticing action used to make it less likely to run away; or running away from the battle yourself.

In Red, Blue and Yellow, the aggressive action is called Rock , and the enticing action is called Bait . The basic idea is this: throwing a rock will double your chances of catching the Pokémon, but it will also make the Pokémon angry for 1-5 turns. Conversely, throwing bait will halve your chances of catching the Pokémon, but cause the Pokémon to be eating for 1-5 turns. While angry, a Pokémon is twice as likely to run on any given turn as if it were in its neutral state, while it is four times less likely to run while it is eating than in a neutral state.

However, there are several more interesting details and subtleties to how Safari Zone battles happen.

Throwing a Ball

Capturing in the Safari Zone follows the regular R/B/Y capture algorithm , though since neither the Pokémon's HP nor its status can be affected and the only balls available are Safari Balls (identical to Ultra Balls), a lot of things are abstracted out in the Safari Zone. Unfortunately, thanks to the game's flawed RNG , Safari Balls underperform against full-health Pokémon, making all capture chances in the Safari Zone lower than intended. The capture chance maxes out when the Pokémon has a catch rate of 150 or more, for which the chance will be about 27-30% depending on rounding errors; all other Pokémon are harder than that.

The catch rate C starts out being, as in regular captures, the intrinsic catch rate of the Pokémon species. However, unlike regular captures, your actions in the Safari Zone can directly modify C, as hinted above.

Throwing Rocks/Bait

Rocks and bait have two distinct effects. First, every time a rock is thrown, the catch rate C is doubled (though it is capped at 255, so if doubling would make the catch rate more than that, it is made 255 instead), and every time bait is thrown, C is halved and rounded down. This happens even if the Pokémon is already angry or eating, and it happens completely blindly - if the Pokémon has a catch rate of 235, and you throw a rock to give it a catch rate of 255, then throwing bait will take that catch rate down to 127, rather than "canceling out" to give it the same catch rate as before.

Since the capture chance maxes out when the catch rate is 150 as explained above, there is no point throwing rocks at any Pokémon with an intrinsic catch rate of 150 or more, or more than one rock at a Pokémon with a catch rate of 75 or more, or more than two rocks at one with a catch rate of 38 or more. As it happens that covers all Pokémon that can be found in the Safari Zone except for Chansey (catch rate 30) and Dragonair (catch rate 27 in Yellow), who would need three rocks to go over 150.

Secondly, while a battle in the Safari Zone is going on, the game also keeps track of two counters, the "angry counter" and the "eating counter", which stand for the number of angry or eating turns the Pokémon has left. They both start out at zero; however, when a rock or bait is thrown, a random number between 1 and 5 inclusive will be generated and added to the appropriate counter (i.e. the angry counter if it's a rock, or the eating counter if it's bait), while the other counter will be reset to zero regardless of its previous value. This means only one of the counters can be nonzero at any given time. Since the random number is added to whatever value the counter already has, throwing further rocks at a Pokémon that is already angry will prolong its angry state, and likewise with throwing bait at an eating Pokémon. The eating and angry counters are both capped at 255.

The Pokémon's Turn

You always get the first turn in the Safari Zone, but on the Pokémon's turn, two things happen.

First, the game will check if either of the angry and eating counters is nonzero. If so, then a message saying "Wild [Pokémon] is angry!" or "Wild [Pokémon] is eating!" as appropriate is shown and the counter is decreased by one. If the angry counter is decreased to zero this way, the Pokémon's catch rate will also be reset to its initial catch rate , regardless of how it has been modified in the battle before this point; note that this last bit does not happen when a Pokémon stops eating, nor when the angry counter is reset to zero because you threw a bait.

After this, the game will perform a calculation to determine whether the Pokémon will run away on this turn. The run chance depends only on which state the Pokémon is in - angry, eating or neutral - but not on how many times you've thrown rocks/bait in any way: a Pokémon that you've thrown five rocks at followed by one bait will be exactly as happy to stick around as one that you threw a bait at on the first turn. Note that the Pokémon's actual current state does not necessarily correspond to the state indicated by the message that was just shown, since the message indicates only that the counter in question was nonzero before it was subtracted from. This also means that if you throw a rock or bait and the random number generated is 1, you will see an angry/eating message, but the Pokémon will in fact be back in its neutral state before even the run check is performed.

The run calculation itself goes as follows:

  • Make a variable X equal to the low byte (i.e. the remainder if you divide by 256) of the Pokémon's Speed ( not the base Speed of the species, but the individual's actual Speed).
  • If the outcome is greater than 255 (i.e. if the Pokémon's Speed was 128 or more), the Pokémon automatically runs. Skip the rest of the procedure.
  • If the Pokémon is angry, double X again (if it becomes greater than 255, make it 255 instead).
  • If the Pokémon is eating, divide X by four.
  • Generate a random number R between 0 and 255 inclusive.
  • If R is less than X, the Pokémon runs away.

All in all, this means that so long as (the low byte of) the Pokémon's Speed is less than 128 (which it always will be in the actual game - the highest Speed any Pokémon actually found in the Safari Zone can have is 75), the chance that it will run is 2*Speed/256 if it's in a neutral state, min(255, 4*Speed)/256 if it's angry, or int(Speed/2)/256 if it's eating.

Crucially, since this is the actual individual Speed and not the base Speed of the species, lower-leveled individuals are less likely to run . While Scyther at level 25 or 28 have around or above a 50% chance of running every turn in a neutral state, for instance, Yellow's level 15 Scyther are considerably easier to catch, with only a 32% chance of running in a neutral state at the most. Thus, perhaps the best piece of strategic advice for the Safari Zone is to go for the lowest-leveled possible version of your desired Pokémon, given the lower-leveled version isn't unacceptably rare.

So, well, how should one go about trying to achieve success in the Safari Zone, other than trying to catch lower-leveled Pokémon? Four basic kinds of strategies come to mind:

  • Balls only. This is the simplest way to go about the Safari Zone - just madly lob balls at everything you want to catch and pray that they don't run before you catch them.
  • Rocks, then balls. Throw some sensible number of rocks, then lob balls and hope you catch it before it either runs or calms down and resets the catch rate. If you see it's not angry anymore, start again from scratch with the rocks.
  • Bait, then balls. Throw some bait to put the Pokémon in the eating state and make it stick around, then throw balls and hope the reduced catch rate doesn't come back to bite you. Unlike with rocks, where once the Pokémon stops being angry you're back at square one, it's not quite as obvious here that you should throw more bait once the Pokémon stops eating - each bait you throw lowers the catch rate more, after all.
  • Rocks to increase catch rate, then bait to get it to stay, then balls. Throw a rock or two (or three) and then immediately throw bait. Provided your first rock doesn't generate one as the number of angry turns (in which case the Pokémon will calm down immediately and reset the catch rate), you'll manage to increase the Pokémon's catch rate before the bait gets thrown, meaning you end up with a catch rate of the same, double or quadruple the original (depending on the number of rocks), but a 4x reduced chance of running and assurance that the catch rate won't reset when it returns to the neutral state.

There are other possible strategies, but they appear obviously flawed - if you were to throw bait and then a rock, for instance, you'd end up with a normal catch rate but a higher running chance after wasting two turns, which can't possibly be helpful. These are the main ones that at a glance appear to hold some kind of promise.

You may think, as I did when I was initially working this out, that the fourth strategy has the most potential. However, as it turns out, the R/B/Y Safari Zone is broken: the balls-only strategy nearly always wins by a considerable margin, at least in terms of your overall chance of catching the Pokémon per encounter. Wasting your time on bait and rocks is only worth it in a couple of very exceptional cases.

Wait, What?

Good question. If you don't care about getting an intuitive grasp on why this is true, feel free to skip to the Safari Zone calculator.

Here's the thing. The entire Safari Zone experience basically simplifies to a game where you and the Pokémon alternate turns, with each of you having a given chance of "winning" on each of your turns (you win if you catch the Pokémon, while the Pokémon wins if it runs). When you throw bait or a rock, however, you do that instead of throwing a ball on that turn, while the Pokémon will continue to have a chance of running on every single one of its turns; essentially, you are forgoing one of your turns (attempts to "win") in exchange for a later advantage.

What is that later advantage, then, and is it worth losing that turn? Well, in the case of a rock, you double your chances of winning (catching the Pokémon) for up to four subsequent turns - but you also double the Pokémon's chances of winning (running away), and because you used up your turn throwing the rock, it's the Pokémon that has the next move.

You can hopefully see how that's not really a recipe for success. However, it's not quite as bleak as it appears, thanks to the one place where the simplification breaks down: you have a limited number of Safari Balls. A rock, by doubling both yours and the Pokémon's chances of winning each turn, will shorten the average duration of the battle. Thus, if you have sufficiently few balls and the Pokémon has a sufficiently low catch rate and Speed, to the point that in an average battle against it you'd run out of balls before either catching it or it running, throwing a rock and shortening the battle so your balls will last can actually be worth it, even at the aforementioned cost. For instance, if you only have one Safari Ball left, then you can either throw that one ball with a regular catch rate or throw some rocks first, which will make your single ball much more likely to be effective once you do throw it; you'll only get one attempt to catch it either way. The risks will still outweigh the benefits if the Pokémon is pretty speedy, since then it will be likely to run before you can actually throw the ball at all, but for a sufficiently slow target (for a single Safari Ball, the highest Speed where a rock will be worth it is 25 or so), rocks can be a good idea when you don't have a lot of Safari Balls left.

Throwing multiple rocks can also help, at least in theory, since more rocks will continue to double your chances of catching the Pokémon without raising the running chance further. Primarily, in many of those situations where a lack of Safari Balls means one rock is a good idea, two (or possibly three) rocks improve your chances even further, though the range of situations where this works is even narrower than for one rock. Technically multiple rocks can also help in general for Pokémon with very low Speeds and low catch rates - however, that's low Speeds as in single digits, and no Pokémon that fit the bill are actually found in the Safari Zone, making that point kind of moot. Otherwise, if you have plenty of balls to spare, the free angry turns they usually get to run away before you even start trying to catch them just result in a disadvantage you can't make up for.

What about bait? Bait is immediately somewhat more promising than rocks, since it halves your chance of "winning" but quarters the Pokémon's. However, bait also differs from rocks in that the catch rate doesn't go back to normal after the Pokémon stops eating, and just like rocks shorten the duration of the battle, bait prolongs the battle - it makes both parties less likely to win on subsequent turns. And the longer the battle goes on, the more the up-to-four turns (remember, the counter is decreased before the run check) that the Pokémon is actually less likely to run diminish in significance compared to all the turns after the Pokémon stops eating, when it will still have a lowered catch rate but a regular chance of running. That's besides the fact that again you must forgo a turn to throw the bait in the first place. In fact, as it turns out this makes bait wholly useless: there is not even in theory a Speed/catch rate combination for which bait will do you any good.

Where does this leave that especially promising-looking "rocks, then bait" strategy? Ultimately, it's stuck in the same rut rocks are: it's normally only useful for Pokémon with such ludicrously low Speed that they don't actually exist in the Safari Zone, and unfortunately, while rocks at least have a niche when you're running low on balls, you're always going to be better off just throwing however many rocks you're going to throw and then throwing your ball than throwing the rocks and then wasting your time on bait if you only have a couple of balls left. This strategy requires wasting several turns without throwing any balls, during some of which the Pokémon will have an increased chance of running, and to make matters worse, if the number of angry turns generated is one, you're going to lose even the rock's advantage and end up with the bait's lowered catch rate after all that preparation. It just kills it.

So, again, in nearly every case the best strategy is to just throw balls and hope you get lucky. That is, however, assuming that what you want to maximize is your chance of success per encounter: since rocks shorten the battle and make for fewer Safari Balls required, rocks may actually save you time and money.

The Safari Zone calculator below includes a variety of strategies, despite their mostly limited usefulness; play around with it if you think you might go with a different one.

Safari Zone Calculator

Use this tool to calculate your chances of capturing a given Pokémon.

As it is, it only includes Pokémon that are actually found in the Safari Zone in either Red, Blue, Yellow, or the Japanese-exclusive Blue version. If there is demand for adding other Pokémon just for the hell of it, I can do that too, but in the meantime, I feel this makes more sense.

In addition to your chances of capturing the Pokémon with any or all of the provided strategies, the calculator will also provide you with the basic capture rate and run chance per turn. When you select a Pokémon and game, additionally, it will give you the locations, levels and rarities at which the Pokémon is found in the Safari Zone in that game, so that you can perhaps attempt to find your Pokémon at a lower level or in an area where it's more common.

The base percentages the calculator gives may not match exactly up with those given by my R/B/Y catch rate calculator , since this calculator makes the simplifying assumption that the Pokémon's HP and Speed are equal to the average HP/Speed a wild Pokémon of the given species/level would have, while the catch rate calculator does the entire calculation for each possible HP IV and takes the average of the actual outcomes. I chose not to do the more accurate calculation here because this calculation is both already relatively slow and involves two different stats - trying every possibility would mean doing that whole relatively slow calculation up to 256 times, which just seems like way more trouble than it's worth.

Pokemon X and Y: Friend Safari Basics/Tips Guide

Go to the Friend Safari so you can catch them all faster than ever before! Read our guide to learn how.

pokemon y safari zone

One of the interesting, and possibly misunderstood, additions to Pokemon X and Y is the highly social Friend Safari. The successor to Safari Zone is inherently social, but in a completely different way from smartphone games like Candy Crush Saga. The quantity of your Pokemon playing friends is not as important as their quality, or to better put it, their skill level. An early heads up, you have to finish the main game before trying this out.

After you defeat the Elite Four, you can go to Lumiose’s train station, where Professor Sycamore is waiting with a Rail Ticket to Kiloude City. At the left of the city is a house with a red roof, also pictured below. This is Friend Safari.

pokemon y safari zone

In Friend Safari, you can visit safaris your fellow Pokemon playing friends have made and registered. You will be able to catch three Pokemon there. Two of them are Level 30 Pokemon, and are frequently console exclusive. The third Pokemon is one of those only available in Friend Safari.

Awesome, right? But to make use of Friend Safari, you’ll need to have friends in real life, who have also finished Pokemon X and Y I mean.

Let me lay out the steps to ensure you can get a 3 rd Pokemon:

1.     When you find a fellow Pokemon player who will work with you, enter their Friend Code into your Friends List, from the 3DS Home screen. Your Friendship status should  change from Provisional to either Online or Offline.

2.     Next, you both need to have beat the Elite Four and received access to the Friend Safari.

3.     Finally, make sure your wireless is on and turn on Internet in game. If everything has gone without a hitch, you will be able to get 3 Pokemon from the Friend Safari.

Now, here are some tips to make the most out of Friend Safari:

·         Use a Pokemon with Trace as the leader. This way, you can check if the Pokemon you come across already has their Primary Ability, Secondary Ability, or Hidden Ability.

·         Give your leader the Smoke Ball, so that it can easily escape from hairy situations.

·         If you’re looking for Dittos for breeding, use Pokemon with Sturdy Ability as leaders. Sturdy will bring Dittos  down to as much as 1 HP. These Pokemon should not have any damage dealing moves. Bergmite is ideal. When the Ditto transforms it, you can easily swap it out and hit the Ditto hard. To improve your chances of catching it, try paralyzing or putting it to sleep as well.

Got any tips you’d like to share? We’ve been making Pokemon X and Y guides for a while now, feel free to share your knowledge with us below.

Pokemon X and Y: How to Find Pokemon on a Friend Safari

Image of Prima Games Staff

You’ll discover plenty of things to do while exploring Kiloude City, one of the more popular destinations in Pokemon X and Y .  We already covered the exciting Battle Maison . Now it’s time to go on a Friend Safari, where you’ll have opportunities to capture Pokemon you would otherwise have to trade with other players or transfer from previous games to obtain. 

To go on a Friend Safari in Pokemon X and Y, you must select from registered players on your friend list. In fact, you stand to gain even more Pokemon if the chosen friend currently plays X or Y.  In addition, you’ll unlock a different Friend Safari for each registered friend code. Naturally, the more Safaris you access, the more Pokemon you’ll collect. 

To capture Pokemon during a Friend Safari, head outside and run through the tall grass. Pokemon you discover will correspond to the Safari type you chose. For instance, opting to go on an Ice Safari means finding Cloyster, Delibird and Sneasel, among others, while a Fire Safari may result in capturing Charmeleon, Larvesta or Magmar, to name a few. 

Friend Safari Tips  

  • Pokemon captured during a Safari may possess hidden abilities.
  • Normally you find two Pokemon on a Safari, but if the person registered entered the Hall of Fame, you’ll get three. 
  • After going on a Safari, talk to the Judge in Kiloude City to reveal their potential. 

Here’s the complete list of Pokemon, by Safari type, that you can find. Pokemon with * after their names are ones you would only be able to get from a Pokemon Professor or via trades.

Center Area

pokemon y safari zone

Center Area (east)

pokemon y safari zone

In the entrance gatehouse to the Safari Zone, pay the requisite ₽500 to enter and receive 30 Safari Balls before heading inside the Safari Zone proper.

In Yellow Version, if you bother the attendant here, he will allow you to enter the Safari Zone even if you don't have ₽500. Instead, he will take all your remaining money and give you a number of Safari Balls proportionate to the amount you paid, leaving you with a single Safari Ball if you have no money at all. It seems the developers did this to avoid an uncommon scenario that could prevent you from making any further progress in the game: if you have no money and no method of earning any more, you cannot enter the Safari Zone to obtain HM03 and the Gold Teeth, both necessary items to complete the game. No such check exists in Red and Blue, so it is quite possible, though extremely unlikely, to get yourself into this situation in those games.

Interestingly, there is an out-of-bounds hidden item inside the entry gatehouse. The Itemfinder will ping if you use it, but, unfortunately, there is no way to unearth the hidden Nugget in here.

Safari Zone mechanics You have a 500-step counter while inside the Safari Zone. Running out the counter will automatically return you to the entrance, as will running out of Safari Balls. Turning on the spot does not count as a step, but can still be used to trigger wild Pokémon battles. You are restricted to the 30 Safari Balls you bought when entering, and any unused Safari Balls are lost once the game is over. The Safari Zone also has different battling mechanics to the rest of the game. The Pokémon here do not attack you but have a nasty habit of running away from battle, and those with higher Speed stats are more likely to flee. Instead of sending out a Pokémon to fight, you're restricted to throwing rocks and bait, which affect the capture chance and fleeing chance of the target Pokémon. Each rock you throw at the wild Pokémon doubles the chance of catching it but also makes it angry for 1–5 turns, and an angry Pokémon is twice as likely to flee. Conversely, each thrown bait halves the chance of catching the Pokémon but also lulls it into an eating state for 1–5 turns, during which time it is four times less likely to flee. For all these unexplained mechanics, the strategy that gives you the best chance to capture a Pokémon on any given encounter is simply to throw Balls at it and ignore rocks and bait entirely. The only time you might ever want to consider rocks and bait is if you are running low on Balls, but you will be significantly reducing your capture chances if you do this. A little later on, Red and Blue players can take advantage of a glitch to bypass all these odd mechanics and catch Safari Zone Pokémon using standard battle mechanics. For a full breakdown of these mechanics, take a look at the Safari Zone mechanics section.

Center Area : Besides the tall grass, there isn't much of interest in the Center Area at the moment.

Pokémon evaluations Exeggcute ( evaluation ) — Rating: C . Though it will be underlevelled and belongs to the Slow experience group, Exeggcute has a nice Grass/Psychic typing and can evolve immediately into the powerful Exeggutor. It wants the Psychic TM to be truly effective, however. Rhyhorn ( evaluation ) — Rating: D . Another underlevelled Pokémon in the Slow experience group, Rhyhorn won't evolve until level 42. While its physical stats are incredible and its movepool is great, it requires a long grind to become powerful, and still has low Speed and Special. Chansey ( evaluation ) — Rating: D . Chansey isn't a bad Pokémon, but it is extremely difficult to catch. Its abysmally low Attack means it can't effectively use any STAB moves, but it does at least have a strong Special and a wide special movepool. Tangela ( evaluation ) — Rating: D . A rare Safari Zone encounter, Tangela has a terrible movepool consisting entirely of Grass- and Normal-type attacks. It lacks SolarBeam or even Petal Dance , and its Attack stat is too low to use Normal-type moves effectively. Dratini ( evaluation ) — Rating: D . Available for the first time in Yellow Version, though at the low level of 15, Dratini only evolves into its powerful final form at level 55. This is a long grind due to Dratini's low stats and Slow experience group.
In-game trade preparation To complete all in-game trades, Red and Blue players should catch a Nidorino to trade for a Nidorina on Route 11, while Yellow players should catch an extra Tangela to trade for a Parasect on Route 18. You'll be reminded shortly when to trade these in, although none of these trades is worth it for anything except completion purposes.

Head north-east and take the narrow eastern path into Center Area (east).

Center Area (east) : In this area, a few new Pokémon are available, though Kangaskhan is found in Area 2 in Yellow, while Tauros is found in Areas 2 and 3 in Red and Blue, being most common (though still very rare) in Area 3.

Pokémon evaluations Kangaskhan ( evaluation ) — Rating: D . Kangaskhan is a tough Normal-type Pokémon with good stats and an excellent movepool. However, it is also a rare Safari Zone-exclusive encounter that is likely to run away, making it extremely difficult to catch. Tauros ( evaluation ) — Rating: D . Tauros doesn't fair too well in-game largely because it's so rare and hard to catch, and then will be a little underlevelled. If you do get one, it's a strong Normal-type Pokémon with great Attack and Speed and a fantastic movepool.

Head east and climb the rocky plateau to the north. At the northern edge is a Carbos . Take the westernmost stairs down off this plateau and head north. A patch of land jutting into the central body of water has TM37 ( Egg Bomb ) on it.

TM37 can be bought infinitely at the Celadon Department Store and contains Egg Bomb, a mediocre Normal-type move with 100 power and 75% accuracy. It can only be learned by Exeggcute, Exeggutor, Chansey and Mew, which all have much better options.

To the north-west, you can pick up a Max Potion . Proceed east from there, using the small rocky plateau here to bypass the tree, and pick up the Full Restore on the other side. Finally, go up around the plateau to the west and take the western exit to Area 2.

Area 2 : Check if you have any new Pokémon available to you in Area 2 before continuing.

In-game trade preparation (Yellow) This is the only area in the game where Kangaskhan can be caught in Yellow Version, and you can catch a spare one to trade away for a Muk much later on. This isn't worth it for anything other than completion purposes.

Head west, ignoring the first staircase to the north and the path exiting south, and instead pass through the patch of tall grass to the north and take the set of stairs here. Come down off this rocky plateau using the stairs to the south-west, and then go as far north as you can. To the east from here is TM40 ( Skull Bash ).

TM40 is a one-time TM which teaches Skull Bash, a 130-power Normal-type move with the massive drawback of requiring a charge turn to execute. Pass.

Loop around the bushes to the north to find a Protein and continue west. Head all the way south and exit south into Area 3.

Area 3 : Pick up the Gold Teeth to the south, then head west and pick up TM32 ( Double Team ) in plain sight.

Using Double Team to ramp up your evade stat can be very useful if luck is on your side. After enough uses, it can feel almost impossible for your opponent to hit you, and with enough luck, it can be so good that it earned itself a ban from competitive matches. Still, it takes time to use it repeatedly over a few turns, and in-game you can often one-hit KO an opponent with supereffective hits. If you want game-breaking strategies, X Accuracy and one-hit KO moves are quicker and far superior. TM32 is also infinitely available to buy from the Celadon Department Store, so you can at least try it out without having to worry too much.

There is also a hidden Revive which is inside the nearby statue. Enter the Secret House by this statue and speak to the man inside to receive HM03 ( Surf ).

As well as being an HM move which allows you to travel over bodies of water on the overworld, Surf is an excellent Water-type move in its own right, being a little less powerful than its closest competition, Hydro Pump, in exchange for near-perfect accuracy and higher PP. It should be a staple move on any Water-type Pokémon for a strong and reliable STAB attack, though a handful of other Pokémon can learn it too. Its only downside is that once it is learned, it can't be forgotten short of trading the Pokémon to Gold, Silver or Crystal, so think carefully before teaching it.

If you have defeated the Fuchsia Gym Leader, you can now use Surf outside of battle after teaching it to a compatible Pokémon. Exit the Secret House and surf south over the small body of water here. Head south into the patch of tall grass and pick up the Max Potion a little to the east before climbing on to the rocky plateau. Head east and descend the other set of stairs here to pick up a Max Revive before exiting to the east.

Center Area : You'll emerge back into the west side of the Center Area. Head east and surf across the water to pick up the final item, a Nugget . That's all for the Safari Zone unless you want to catch any more Pokémon, so either exit to the south or, more likely, have the step counter run out to return to the entrance.

Link to area overview

Back in Fuchsia City, head for the Warden's house, which is the building directly east of the Pokémon Center. Now that you have the Gold Teeth, you can return them to the Warden to receive HM04 ( Strength ).

Strength is used on the field to push large boulders around, which will be needed to solve a few puzzles later on. In battle, it's an unremarkable 80-power Normal-type move that's outclassed by moves such as Body Slam. However, because it is an HM move, it can be taught infinitely, so if the TM for Body Slam has already been used up on a Pokémon, Strength is a reasonable alternative.

You can put Strength to work immediately and push the nearby boulder to one side so you can claim the Rare Candy .

Surf round-up With Surf now available to use outside of battle, a large portion of the game opens up to you. There are also some areas you have previously visited where you can now pick up new items and Pokémon. This guide will first take care of some in-game trades before continuing to the surf round-up.
Red/Blue in-game trade 6/9 : Nidorino ↔ Nidorina Red and Blue players should withdraw their Nidorino for this in-game trade before flying to Vermilion City and heading east on to Route 11. Proceed all the way east into the gatehouse, then head upstairs and talk to the young man by the window to trade your Nidorino away for a Nidorina.
Yellow in-game trade 3/7 : Tangela ↔ Parasect Yellow players can instead withdraw their Tangela for another rather pointless in-game trade. From Fuchsia City, take the western exit into the Route 18 gatehouse, then head upstairs and talk to the man here to trade Tangela away for a Parasect.

Surf on to the water directly south of the Pokémon Center. You'll spot two houses to the south. Surf in between them and examine the west side of the eastern house, on the tile closest to land, to find a hidden Max Ether .

Yellow players should now head to Route 6, just north of Vermilion City.

Pokémon evaluations Psyduck ( evaluation ) — Rating: D . This is the only place that Yellow players can catch a Psyduck or, rarely, its evolved form, Golduck. It'll be very underlevelled compared to the rest of your team but is otherwise a decent, if somewhat bland, Water-type Pokémon.
In-game trade preparation (Yellow) Catch a spare Golduck here if you can, even if it is rather rare, to trade away for a Rhydon later on. If you don't want to hunt for the rare Golduck, then alternatively you can get one by evolving a Psyduck, though you will have to train it from level 15 to level 33 to get it to evolve.

Make your way west from the Pokémon Center to the small pond in the centre of the city. Surf across and talk to the elderly lady on the other side to receive TM41 ( Softboiled ).

Softboiled can only be taught to Chansey and Mew. If you're using one of these two Pokémon, Softboiled has some utility for its out-of-battle effect, which transfers 20% of the user's HP to a chosen party Pokémon. Given Chansey's gargantuan HP, this can save you a few trips to the Pokémon Center. In battle, it's also useful for simply healing the user for 50% of its maximum HP, though using items is still superior without taking up a moveslot. TM41 is unique, but this isn't much of an issue as there is hardly any demand for it.

Fly to Lavender Town so you can head south into Route 12. Continue south, passing through the gatehouse, until you come to the first Fisherman. Just south from him on a small isolated section of land sits TM16 ( Pay Day ), which you can reach with Surf.

Pay Day is a weak 40-power Normal-type move without much battling use and generates money equal to twice the user's level whenever it hits the opponent. This isn't much, so it is not worth using up a moveslot for this. TM16 is unique, so use it carefully.

Pokémon evaluations Slowpoke ( evaluation ) — Rating: C . This marks the first opportunity for Yellow players to catch a Slowpoke, though higher-level ones are available later on at the Seafoam Islands. Water/Psychic typing is fantastic, but Slowpoke takes a lot of hits due to its abysmal Speed.

Now that you have Surf and have tidied up any previous areas, you can take a detour to pick up Zapdos, a level 50 dual-type Electric/Flying Legendary Pokémon. It's an excellent Pokémon, particularly if you don't have an Electric-type Pokémon on your team and have saved the Thunderbolt TM for it.

Purchase a handful of Ultra Balls and bring along a Pokémon that can put opponents to sleep, because Zapdos has a very low catch chance if it isn't inflicted with any status conditions. Freeze is equally good but far harder to inflict, while poison, burn and paralysis aren't quite as good but are still better than using no status condition at all. Also, make sure you have enough room in your PC Box for Zapdos and a handful of other wild Pokémon that you might be interested in.

Fly to Cerulean City and withdraw Pokémon that can use Surf and Cut. Head toward the eastern exit of the city by passing through the burgled house and using Cut on the bush before Route 9. Head all the way east through Route 9 on to Route 10, recognisable by a large patch of tall grass bordered by water on the north and east sides.

It might be worth healing up at the Pokémon Center just to the south here, which is the nearest one to the Power Plant but also cannot be accessed via Fly. This means that using Dig or an Escape Rope to leave the Power Plant will return you to this Pokémon Center, saving you the trek through Route 9 from Cerulean City.

Surf on to the water to the north and follow it around to the east and south. As it banks around to the west, you'll spot a PokéManiac (F) above you.

PokéManiac (F) Pokémon Type Lv. Exp. Moves Rhyhorn Ground/Rock 30 867 Horn Attack , Stomp HP: 92 , Attack: 61 , Defense: 66 , Speed: 24 , Special: 27 Lickitung Normal 30 816 Supersonic , Stomp , Disable , Defense Curl HP: 98 , Attack: 43 , Defense: 54 , Speed: 27 , Special: 45 Reward ₽1500

Just to the north-west of him is the entrance to the Power Plant, so head inside.

Hoenn Safari Zone

Hoenn Safari Zone Map.png

The Hoenn Safari Zone (Japanese: サファリゾーン Safari Zone ) is a special Pokémon preserve where Trainers can enter to catch wild Pokémon . The entrance is on Hoenn 's Route 121 .

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire , and Emerald , this Safari Zone is only accessible to Trainers participating in the Safari Game. In a Safari Game, players may only use Safari Balls , and rather than weaken wild Pokémon in battle, players must use non-conventional tactics to try and catch them. For $ 500, the player is granted entry and 30 Safari Balls. In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the player is limited to 500 steps and the player is only allowed entry if they also have a Pokéblock Case .

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire , the Safari Game has been removed, and players can enter the Safari Zone area without paying a fee. Pokémon found here are now collected through normal battles. Each area also now has both tall and long grass , and while encounters between them are mostly the same, two rare Pokémon in each area can only be found in one type of grass specifically.

Certain areas of the Safari Zone can only be accessed with the Mach Bike or the Acro Bike . In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, all areas are accessible with either Bike and Surf , but in some areas, only one type of grass will be accessible without using the other Bike. In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, there are also breakable rocks that can be used to encounter Pokémon. In Emerald , after the player obtains the National Pokédex , two new areas will open up to the east, featuring many Johto Pokémon not found in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire or Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen .

  • Area 6 is directly north of Area 5. It is only accessible in Emerald, and only after the player has entered the Hall of Fame.

Pokéblock feeders

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire , and Emerald , there are Pokéblock feeders throughout the Safari Zone. If a Pokéblock is placed in a feeder, 80% of wild Pokémon encountered in grass patches and water tiles up to five steps away from the feeder will be forced to have a Nature such that, if an identically flavored Pokéblock were thrown at it, the Pokémon would be enthralled (i.e. its preferred flavor dominates its disliked flavor in the Pokéblock); the feeder has no effect if no such Nature exists. Only one Pokéblock may occupy a feeder, and the feeder's effect disappears after 100 steps are taken.

Due to an oddity in the programming of Pokéblock feeders, forced natures do not have a uniform distribution. This causes natures with higher ID numbers to be more common than Natures with lower ID numbers. For example, if a green (bitter) Pokéblock is in the feeder and forces an enthralling Nature: Calm has an 8.71% chance to be forced, Gentle has a 15.61% chance to be forced, Sassy has a 27.66% chance to be forced, and Careful has a 48.02% chance to be forced (approximately).

Safari Game

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, this Safari Zone is only accessible to Trainers participating in the Safari Game. In a Safari Game, players may only use Safari Balls; rather than weaken them in battle, players must use non-conventional tactics to try and catch wild Pokémon. There are four options on the battle screen: throw a Safari Ball , throw a Pokéblock , go near, and run away. Throwing Pokéblocks makes a Pokémon less likely to run, while going near makes a Pokémon easier to catch but more likely to run.

Pokémon found in the Safari Zone carry two values with them that are used for the mechanics of the Safari Game. First is the "catch factor", which starts at 100/1275 of the Pokémon's catch rate , rounded down. Furthermore, there is an "escape factor", which represents the probability that a Pokémon will escape at the end of each turn. This "escape factor" starts with a value of 3 which results in a 15% chance to flee per turn.

Depending on the action taken, the catch and escape factors are modified as follows:

If a Pokémon's "escape factor" is reduced below 0 * , it will be adjusted to a value of 1. If a Pokémon's escape factor is currently 1: Pokéblocks are unable to affect it.

Throwing a Pokéblock that the Pokémon completely ignores does not directly affect the escape factor, but does increment the Pokéblock counter used for subsequent Pokéblock throws. A Pokémon is enthralled by a Pokéblock if its preferred flavor dominates its disliked flavor, while a Pokémon completely ignores it if its disliked flavor dominates its preferred flavor. If both preferred and disliked flavors are equal (including if neither are present), the Pokémon is curious about the Pokéblock.

If a player chooses to throw a Safari Ball, the catch factor is multiplied by 1275/100 (rounded down) to obtain the modified catch rate. At the beginning of each turn, a randomly generated value from 0 to 99 (inclusive) is obtained, and if this value is less than 5 times the escape factor, the Pokémon will escape at the end of the turn unless captured. Modifications to a Pokémon's escape rate will not take effect until the following turn.

These numbers translate to a 5% change in probability of escaping for every unit change (plus or minus 1) in the escape factor, with an initial 15% chance of escape; and approximately a 2.5% change in probability of capture for every unit change in the capture factor, with an initial capture probability of approximately catch rate/510 rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.025 (2.5%), or 0.025 if it would be less.

Pokéblock throw bug

In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, instead of the escape factor having a minimum value of 1 (5% chance to flee) like the catch factor, the game is coded to set the escape factor to 1 if it would become negative due to a thrown Pokéblock. This means it is possible for the player to throw Pokéblocks such that a Pokémon's escape factor becomes exactly 0, and the Pokémon will have a 0% chance to escape. Exploiting this can make it very easy to catch Hoenn Safari Zone Pokémon. Though, it is worth noting that if the "escape factor" is ever equal to 1, the game will not reduce it further regardless of which Pokéblocks are thrown by the player.

Due to an oddity in the programming of Pokéblock Feeders, the distribution of wild Pokémon's natures is not even across each of the possibilities. This causes Calm Pokémon to only spawn in 1/10 encounters if a bitter Pokéblock is in the feeder while Careful natured Pokémon will occur in nearly 4/10 encounters. This gives players an opportunity to greatly increase the effectiveness of their Pokéblock manipulation.

The optimal catching strategy for exploiting this is as follows:

Make these three single- flavor Pokéblocks: two green * (bitter) Pokéblocks, and one red * (spicy) Pokéblock. Put the green * Pokéblock into a feeder and start a wild encounter near that feeder.

Note: this can be done with yellow * , pink * , blue * , and green * Pokéblocks in the feeder; green * is just the most effective. With any of these colors make a red * Pokéblock as well. If you would like to use a red * Pokéblock in the feeder pair it with a yellow * (sour) Pokéblock.

When the battle starts...

  • If the Pokémon's catch rate is higher than 200, throw Safari Balls .
  • 1) If the Pokémon is curious (escape factor = 0), throw Safari Balls .
  • 2a) If the Pokémon is enthralled (escape factor = 0), throw Safari Balls .
  • 2b) If the Pokémon is curious (escape factor = 1), throw Safari Balls .
  • 3) If the Pokémon is enthralled (escape factor = 1), throw Safari Balls .

This strategy results in, at minimum, a 75.88% chance to catch any Pokémon that appears.

The Safari Zone Pokémon Catch Rate goes as follows:

Vending Machine

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire , there is a Vending Machine at the entrance to the Safari Zone.

Generation III

Generation vi.

  • No Pokémon introduced in Generation III appear in this Safari Zone.
  • In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire , the entrance to the Safari Zone has a book titled "The Path of the Safari Zone" written by the founder of the Safari Zone.
  • In Pokémon Emerald , the Rare Candy in Area 6 cannot be picked up if the player tries to pick it up while facing it from the north or the west.
  • Hoenn Safari Zone Areas 1, 2, and 4 from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire can be found in the internal data of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen . However, the tileset data is missing, so the maps are glitched.
  • Both Aipom and Gligar can be found in the Emerald expansion of the Safari Zone, both of which would become version exclusive Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violets DLC: The Teal Mask.
