“We hope you have fun hunting down the best Pokémon, but do watch out as you cross roads, avoid stepping onto private property, and try not to bang into anyone else on the pavement as you circle the spot.”

The council’s website at www.newport-pagnell.org.uk has clues to find them.

There are ‘C Stops’ in and around the High Street, St John’s Street, Tickford Street and Silver Street in the town, with some clues below.

All the stops below are not on private property. Look for a Lions head in well near a pub named after artillery; club for ex servicemen; signs at Ousebank Gardens. French family memorial; an abbey named after what a clock does and a black motor vehicle; Footbridge Plaque 2006; Play area in a street named after what a clock does and black motor vehicle.
