The Laramie Big P Ranch and Laramie Village

Laramie Village

Located in Safari Land is the Laramie Big P Ranch, which is owned by the Laramie family. On the ranch, lots of Pokémon are bred and raised in their natural habitat. It is not allowed to catch Pokémon inside the Laramie Big P Ranch. According to Brock, Pokémon Breeders love Pokémon originating from the ranch, because they were raised in the wild and are a little bit stronger than other Pokémon. Located on the farm is Laramie Village, which would host a festival commemorating the Big P Pokémon Race, night before the event starts.

Ash and his friends arrived on the ranch in The Flame Pokémon-athon!. Thinking they had reached the Safari Zone, Ash attempted to catch a Tauros. He was stopped by a Growlithe that was revealed to be owned by Lara Laramie, part of the Laramie family and in charge of patrolling the farm. After making clear they had no intention to do any harm, Lara introduced herself to the group. She invited them to a party at Laramie Village held that night and also to watch the Big P Pokémon Race held the day after.

Pokémon Preservation Area

Closer to the Safari Zone are dense forests and open plains filled with many rare wild Pokémon, which are patrolled by Ranger Jenny in her jeep. In The Kangaskhan Kid, Ash and his friends helped Tommy to reunite with his parents after they lost him in Safari Land five years earlier. After defeating Team Rocket, Tommy's parents decided to live with Tommy's adopted family, a herd of Kangaskhan.
