Corsola is Appearing in Europe for Pokemon GO Players and People Aren’t Happy

Corsola is Appearing in Europe for Pokemon GO Players and People Aren’t Happy

Many fans had travelled to last weekend’s Safari Event specifically to catch it.

Niantic has revealed that it is running a special Europe-wide event to thank those who attended Safari Zone in Dortmund. Corsola, a pokemon previously exclusive to a specific region strip on the globe, is now being released in all European Territories. This has irked many who had travelled to Germany specifically to bag themselves a Corsola, only to return home and find that it is now available throughout Europe anyway.

The Safari Zone Dortmund Event was a bit of a mixed bag for some, after a bug caused many players to be locked out from the game for long periods of time. The network issues did calm towards the end of the day though, with many able to enjoy the bonuses and exclusive pokemon offered up for the event. Niantic has launched a new Europe-wide event in hopes of making up for the connectivity issues during the event, though for many this simply isn't good enough.

Of course, for those who experienced connectivity issues during their time at the Safari Zone event, the fact that they will be able to catch a Corsola will no doubt be a good thing. It's also worth pointing out that Corsola was only one of many bonuses associated with the event, with many trainers able to make the most of boosted XP, increased shiny rates and more.

The event, which is currently live, will run until July 4 at 11:59 p.m. UTC, and sees Corsola and Roselia appearing across Europe. Safari Zone Dortmund was the first in a series of major events planned for this year, with Pokemon GO Fest taking place in Chicago July 14-15, and later in Yokosuka.

Trainers around the world worked together to complete a series of Global Challenges during the Safari Zone weekend, eventually unlocking a special Articuno Day that will go live on July 7. To read up on the upcoming Articuno event, head over to our Pokemon GO Articuno Day guide.

With Corsola now available over an increased collection of territories, you'll want to head over to our Pokemon GO Region Exclusive Pokemon Guide to see what other pokemon you can only find in your area.
