Combine a day of relaxation with grass and bug Pokémon hunting at the Botanical Gardens at Samarès Manor in Jersey and you might also run into some of your favourites like Bulbasaur or Scyther.

Created in the 1920’s, the historic Botanical Gardens at Samarès Manor offer you a tranquil day out as you roam the established gardens and manor house in search for an array of grass and bug types.  After wandering around the estate of extensive flora, top off your day of relaxation by adding a Vileplume or Pinsir to your Pokédex


Guernsey’s Vazon Bay is not only a magnet for tourists searching for breathtaking sea views but also a prime location for adding the likes of Kingler and Squirtle to your collection.

Take your Pokémon hunting quest to Vazon Bay, where any time you’re not catching the more elusive water Pokémon like Seadra and Starmie can be spent watching the extreme sports enthusiasts who are lured to the stretch of expansive beach and strikingly blue seas.


Fancy uncovering your favourite fossil Pokémon? Aerodactyl could be waiting for you as you throw yourself back in time at the fascinating Jersey Museum.

Then why not take a trip to the intriguing Jersey Museum? With displays surrounding Celtic treasure hoards, Jersey’s prehistoric Ice Age and the Claude Cahun art exhibition, you can mix together a day of culture with a chance of uncovering a Kabutops or an Omastar.
