PKMN.NET :: Honey :: Diamond, Pearl and Platinum Pokémon
Diamond, Pearl and Platinum Pokémon: Honey | Trees, Honey, and finding Pokemon. Fun!
Back in “ye olde dayes” of Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal you were able to get into battles with certain Pokémon by knocking them out of trees by using the move Headbutt.
Now before you get too excited and start thinking that they’ve brought this feature back let me tell you something, they haven’t. But Pokémon Diamond and Pearl do feature something quite similar, but quite a lot stranger.

This new feature involves spreading a new item, known as Honey (Not "Sweet Honey", just Honey) on certain trees around Sinnoh to entice certain Pokémon to them.

You first get Honey when you save the man in Floaroma Meadow from Team Galactic. From then on, one of the easiest ways to get more Honey is to buy it from the man for 100 Pokedollars.
Other than that, you'll will find Honey numerous times while playing through the game and you can even get it from Combee's special ability. It's like they're desperate for you to get your hands on the sweet stuff!

To use your newly gained Honey you will have to find one of the many big brown trees dotted around Sinnoh.
Found one?
Now, walk up to the tree and press the A button.
After a quick schpiel about the air smelling sweet, you are given the option to spread your Honey on it. Don't question it, just do it. Once you have done this you can go. Yes, leave that tree alone for a while. Come back at some point within twelve hours and you should find a Pokemon there, waiting to be battled by you!
If you wait too long then your Honey will have gone to waste so make sure you remember to come back. I know about this personally, I never remember.

Usually, all you'll find is a Wurmple, or possibly Silcoon or Cascoon, but don't worry, there are cooler Pokemon to be found using Honey. The best thing about it is that these Pokemon can only be found using Honey.

These are the Pokémon that are obtainable only through using Honey:

UPDATE!: After eight hours, all honeyed trees will contain a Pokémon (assuming they haven't run away). Remember - the longer you wait, the higher the chance of the Pokémon escaping.

Also, are you fed up of getting male Combees when you really need that elusive female? Fear not! If you save before checking a tree, and get the wrong gender, switch off the DS. The Pokémon species itself will remain unchanged, but its level and gender can change. Also useful if you want a higher-level Pokémon of the same species for quick evolution.

I've only managed to catch one munchlax and that was near Eterna Forest, it takes 6 hours for a pokemon to inhabit the tree so all trainers searching for munchlax may want to check every 6 hours or so.

Munchlax is supposed to appear in ALL trees, people seem to make that up. Plus, all pokemon on trees are always level 10. You can use it like Sweet Scent too :)

Good. I can catch a Munchlax now... NO MORE COMBEES OR WURMPLES!!! THEY STINK!

I've been doing the Honey Thing for like 5 days and still no Munchlax! I've gotten Burmy. 1 Aipom and tons of MALE Combee, which is so annoying. Oh and by the way (if you don't know) False Swipe gets the wild Pokemons down to 1 HP but I don't know where to get it... but it is a TM!
