A few days ago, Niantic announced that the Safari Zone events originally scheduled for this month in Europe were delayed to sometime this fall (following the fiasco at the Pokémon GO Fest, last month). To apologise for this, some Pokémon rarely seen in Europe (such as Kangaskhan and Unown) are now starting to appear in several cities around Europe, and should stay until August 21st.

Also, if you go at one of the Unibail-Rodamco shopping centers, you will find Lure Modules activated at the many PokéStops on August 12th and 13th, and August 19th and 20th. The perfect occasion for you to get those unusual Pokémon and complete your Pokédex!
