2. SAFARI ZONE YOKOSUKA

3. MOLTRES DAY & REWARDS
Thanks to Trainers around the world, we've unlocked some significant Stardust bonuses. Triple catch Stardust, one-hour Star Pieces, double hatch Stardust, and 3,000 Stardust guaranteed per Raid will all go live on September 3 at 1:00 PM PDT and last until September 10 at 1:00 PM PDT.
We've also unlocked Moltres Day on September 8. Much like Articuno and Zapdos Days, each Gym will sport a three-hour Moltres Raid, five free Raid Passes will be given out, and Shiny Moltres will be released.
The final thing we've unlocked, thanks to three three research challenges at GO Fest and the summer's two Safari Zones, is the Ultra Bonus. We do not know what this bonus is yet, but an in-game news announcement says it will be revealed on September 10. SOURCE: Niantic
