You might have learned a thing or two about tracking down Pokémon on busy city streets through Pokémon Go, but do the same skills apply when scouring for similar species in the wild? You can find out at Yomiuri Land’s new attraction called Pokémon Wonder. Here, visitors get 90 minutes to track down wild Pokémon in a hidden section of the park that was previously closed to the public.

There are 50 different kinds of Pokémon in total that can be found across two different trails. The first trail will take you along the area’s ‘ancient stone wall’ while the second one will lead you into a lush bamboo forest.

Before you begin your journey, you will be briefed by Professor Creso and Pikachu and receive a set of clues that’ll help you track down the pocket monsters. Keep your eyes peeled – the Pokémon are crafted from natural materials like acorns and palm leaves, meaning that they blend in far too easily with their surroundings and can be quite tricky to spot.

Critters that live in the forest include everything from Oddishes to Omanytes and Seedots to Rowlets.
