    Default pokemon in the safari zone

    i was thinking, if the pokemon in the safari zone can't be found anywhere else in the region, are they even native to that region? because the safari zone is kinda like a zoo, and some if the pokemon can be found normally in other regions. so did the wardens take pokemon from other regions to promote their park, or are the pokemon just naturally found in the area where the safari zone is located

    I think the Pokemon move there after the banks buy out their house ^^"

    All jokes aside, I think the Pokemon just came there... I don't think Nintendo has given an explanation yet.

    Yeah, it's like a zoo. The pokemon aren't usually native.

    I guess that brings us to the OP's question. D: Chansey, for example. What if she's not really a Kanto Pokemon? The only place Chansey appear in the wild are in Shinnoh, right?

    Ooh, then a theory could be that they imported Chansey from Shinnoh to show them off in Kanto, but it took the poor Chansey a while to change from cold climate to the much-warmer Kanto climate. Many of them died out, which is why there are so very, very, VERY few to find for many people. And why they're rare in Kanto, but not in Shinnoh.

    ...random silliness. I'm on an energy drink high, so I can come up with something this silly. OTL But still, it sounds possible, no? I know it doesn't explain Blissey in Johto, but it DOES make sense for Happiny being a Shinnoh Pokemon naturally. Somehow. OTL
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Its mixture of pokémon not found anywhere else in the region (like Tauros & Exeggcute) and those only found in specific areas (like the Nidos & Doduo). They're all imported into an environment managed by conservation workers, I believe (the safari zone itself) which is unlike any other area of Kanto and therefore allows those different, exotic kinds of pokemon to live there.

    So yeah, some pokémon are from Gen 1 but not from Kanto, but able to live in the managed managed biome of the safai zone, a bit like the Eden Project.

    And I think that's made even clearer in Gen 2 when you go back to Kanto. The Safari zone's not really there anymore, or rather, with the lack of conservation work by the Safari Zone workers there, it seems to have turned into different type of environment, taken over by the natural Kantoan flora (if you take the Gen II beta map for the safari zone into account) and as such the pokemon can no longer be found.

    Well, I always thought there were many Pokemon who aren;t from the region that they are normally accociated with.

    For instance, I always figured that Farfetch'd are orginally from Johto since you have to trade to get them in G/R/B, though in yellow you can find them in the wild but since the Farfetch'd in that game are located near Safari Zone they were probably imported to the sarfari zone but then escaped.

    Same goes for Lickitung.

    Computer: There's an e-mail message! ... The 3 legendary bird POKéMON are ARTICUNO, ZAPDOS, and MOLTRES. Their whereabouts are unknown. We plan to explore the cavern close to CERULEAN.

    I see the Safari Zone is a giant game preserve that would import pokémon for conservation purposes and let trainers catch the surplus produced by captive breeding.

    That or the Safari Zone is a game park where they captive breed pokémon solely for trainers to catch.

    It's probably a sort of conservation method since some of the Pokemon in there are sometimes rare or uncommon in their own region.

    I have to agree with the pokemon being deported to the safari zone.

    Yeah, I aree with the idea that the Pokemon themselves are specially bred, and in some cases like Johto's imported. That explains Kangaskhan, Scyther, and all those other guys. As for the Hoenn and SINNOH Pokemon in Johto's, they obviously were imported.

    It is mainly like a zoo. For example, Kanto may have Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh Pokemon (maybe Unova), but it also has Kanto Pokemon that are extremely rare in the wild.

    I believe that Pokémon in the Safari Zone are specifically bred/imported for trainers to capture. Only a few of them are found in the wild, and many of them can't be found anywhere else.
