The Safari Game, a common staple of Pokémon games. This area allows for the capture of Pokémon without the need for battling them. With 500 steps and 30 Safari Balls, you are sent into the Zone. However in Diamond & Pearl's Safari Game in Pastoria City, there are certain differences:

Allocating Pokémon

Allocating Pokémon in the new Safari Game is done in an entirely new way. As there are a good deal of Pokémon that are allocated to the Safari Game, only a certain amount are obtainable at one time, therefore there must be a means to get specifics.

In the upstairs of the Safari Game building, there is a lookout with 3 binoculars pointing towards the Safari Game. For 100 PokéDollars you get a brief glimpse around the Safari Game showing certain Pokémon in certain areas, including non-Sinnoh Dex ones after you have obtained the National Dex. Once you've seen the Pokémon you're looking for, go into the Safari Game and you should find it in that area. This however is not a guarantee


In the Safari Game

The internals of the Safari Game are also different. There are 6 areas in the Safari Game, all interlinked in some way, Surfing or just General paths. However there is a train in the Safari Game that can take you to a specific area so that you can hunt that Pokémon down much easier.

The grass in the Safari Game is also incased in Mud, if you walk too slowly or close to grassless mud, you will get stuck in the mud and have to remove yourself, every time you get yourself out of being stuck, it counts as a step so be weary


Below are the Pokémon in the Safari Game found only through looking through the Binoculars, unless stated, they are only available after the National Dex has been obtained:
