Wanna be the very best, like no one ever was? Soz, according to the rumour mill someone’s already caught them all, filled their Pokédex and taken the title of ultimate Pokémon Master. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for any old Pidgey, Rattata or Drowzee that comes your way – there’s still a whole jungle of Pokémon out there, you just need to know where to find them.

Before the weekend saw its closure, you may have relied on sneaky web app Pokevision to find the exact location of those rarer virtual creatures but now that’s gone, you may need a helping hand. That’s where PlanetPass comes in. One of their Blue Badge guides, Hazel, is a Poké enthusiast and wants to help the public hone their skills and catch some critters all while taking in some London history.

The private tour is for up to six people, lasts 90 minutes and costs £66. We’re pretty sure you’ll hit a mass of Pokéstops and hatch some eggs along the way but as Pokémon are wily little things, we’re not sure how many rare or even good catches you’ll get on your travels. But, who are we to say? Seeing as Pokémon are generated by the highest ranking trainer in the area, Hazel’s mega skills might encourage that Cubone or Rapidash hit up the South Bank for a nice stroll. And if you need to entertain your aunt and uncle with some London sightseeing, you could kill two birds with one stone… or capture two Grimers with one Pokéball – something like that at least.

This is where to find 30 of the best and rarest Pokémon in London
