New Safari Zone Locations Found by Miners

Trainers! The data mining group, PokeMiners, has released their latest findings in a Reddit post that can be found here. Some of the highlights include: earning PokéCoins from Research, unannounced Safari Zone locations, a new Team GO Rocket quest line, and much, much more!

Before we begin, we would like to make it very clear that NONE of the following information has been confirmed by Niantic. 

Anything found in this article can, and probably will, change. Everything that follows should be taken with a grain of salt until Niantic publicly confirms it; until then, it is nothing but speculation!

Now, let’s breakdown everything that was found.

Research PokeCoins

Come back tomorrow to earn more PokéCoins

Could it be? PokéCoins from Research Tasks? Only time will tell, but if that is what this means, exciting times, Trainers!

New Quests

quest_catch_plural_unique
Catch {0} different species of Pokémon

special_event_catch
Special Event: Catch {0} Pokémon

special_event_gifts
Special Event: Send {0} Gifts to friends

These appear to be three generic quests. Two of which, are seemingly linked to Special Events.

Hey there, %PLAYERNAME%. You’ve been instrumental in keeping back Team GO Rocket’s forces.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_0_1
Thanks to your hard work, we’ve learned so much about this enemy.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_0_2
Team GO Rocket won’t be going away anytime soon, so I’m glad I can rely on you and your fellow Trainers.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_0_3
While you’ve done an amazing job so far, I’m looking for more opportunities for you to hone your skills. Every good Trainer needs to stay on their toes!

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_0_4
The Super Rocket Radar is in good hands with you on the task, but I wouldn’t be a good Professor if I didn’t make sure you were keeping up with Giovanni.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_1_0
As expected, %PLAYERNAME%. Fantastic work!

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_1_1
Even though we’ve been fighting off the threat of Team GO Rocket for some time, I’m still concerned about the fact that Shadow Pokémon keep appearing.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_1_2
It seems even more Pokémon are being turned into Shadow Pokémon despite our efforts. I’ve been tracking this situation, and the numbers have almost tripled since all this began.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_1_3
We need to keep pushing forward—those Pokémon need our help! Can I rely on you to purify more Shadow Pokémon?

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_1_4
I’m sure you’ll see them shine with gratitude once you do!

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_2_0
Thank you for your efforts, %PLAYERNAME%.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_2_1
I’m getting more and more concerned about the growing number of Shadow Pokémon, so we need to keep fighting back against this threat.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_2_2
Your talent has made it clear that you’re ready for the next step in your preparations.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_2_3
Use your battle skills to take on some Grunts. I think with some further observation, I can figure out what you need to do to make sure you’re at your best!

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_3_0
All right! You should feel proud of your progress, %PLAYERNAME%. You consistently impress me and the team leaders.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_3_1
Candela could learn a thing or two from your battle prowess. I’m sure the Team GO Rocket Leaders see you as a challenge.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_3_2
Take that challenge to them, and drive them out of wherever they’re holed up!

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_4_0
%PLAYERNAME%, your preparations are complete—you’re ready to take on Giovanni.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_4_1
It’s time for you to use the Super Rocket Radar to track down the boss himself.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_4_2
You’ve proven not only your strength in battle but also your compassion through saving and purifying Shadow Pokémon.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_4_3
Confront Giovanni with that strength and compassion, and I believe he won’t be able to stop you!

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_4_4
Good luck, %PLAYERNAME%!

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_5_0
Well done, %PLAYERNAME%. You’ve shown Team GO Rocket just how strong your training has made you.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_5_1
Although your battle with Giovanni wasn’t easy, the skills you’ve learned through practice and patience have paid off.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_5_2
But keep your wits about you, %PLAYERNAME%.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_5_3
Giovanni doesn’t like to lose, so I’m sure he’ll be back soon to further his plans.

quest_special_dialogue_rockethq5_5_4
I know I can count on you when he returns, but until then, I’ll work on finding some training opportunities for you so you can keep developing your skills.

Safari Zone Quest Dialogues

Quest Dialogues for St. Louis, Liverpool, and Philadelphia. Perhaps even more interesting, Quest Dialogues were found for Goyang, Monterrey, and Seville! This could be a sign that three new events will be announced soon. The keyword here is COULD.

WHAT COULD BE

Obviously, nothing that was found other than Safari Zone: St. Louis, Liverpool, and Philadelphia, has been confirmed by Niantic. But, the possibilities here are very exciting!

Another way to earn PokéCoins? Yes, Please! A new TGR Special Research for March? Expected, but also yes, please. A badge for obtaining Best Buddies? We’ll take it! More new Pokémon being introduced? Give. To. Me. All Day! And last but not least, THREE new locations for Safari Zones? MUCH HYPE!

Should any or all of these findings be confirmed by Niantic, we will be sure to let you know. Until then, all aboard the hype train now departing Speculation Station!
