In Pokémon there were many different oddly coloured trees in the game. If you "slathered the bark with honey" you would had a possibility of a Pokémon appearing after some time. Did you ever bother with the Honey Trees? :3

Let me know!

Discuss! :3

I always forget about coming back to the trees, so I never really use them.

This was a pretty cool feature that I enjoyed doing on my first playthrough, but after a while it got old and boring. Not to mention that 90% of the time I would forget about it.

I did make use of this a lot, and while it's annoying when you find an extremely common Wurmple it does get better if you find things like Heracross, Aipom (some gain Technician when they evolve!) or if very lucky, the elusive female Combee needed to evolve into Vespiquen (which I did get on my Platinum version).

While it's annoying waiting for the Pokemon, it's nice you can get a Heracross or an Aipom that might be good when it evolves out of it.

I didn't bother with it ever due to laziness ... I'd do it post-game only for Dex entries though.

That's not how you get Drifloon. A Drifloon stands in front of the Windworks on Fridays; in other words, it's a stationary Pokemon

Anyway, I only used the honey tree Pokemon as Dex filler. I only encountered Munchlax once, in the honey tree in Floaroma Meadow.

Nope! I used the feature when I first discovered it, but it got stale fast. The chance of finding a rare/quality Pokemon was super slim and the time you had to wait just to encounter a Pokemon was incredibly lengthy. It's a shame though because the feature does have a lot of potential; unfortunately it just wasn't fulfilled.

Well to be honest I don't like this feature as well as I don't like wasting my time at the tree. I did visited them at one time only to look for a Heracross and then what wasted an hour to find it and still it did not appeared

I always used to put honey on the trees. I wanted to find rare Pokemon like Munchlax or a Heracross. I never found them. I always got Wurmple or something really stupid. I sometimes got Aipom however, which is a Pokemon that I did want. Eventually, I just gave up with the Honey trees and I just went on to bring my Snorlax from Firered to Pokemon Pearl and I breeded it. Heracross.. I just used the GTS when I seen one. It's just my horrible luck with Honey Trees!

I used to use Honey Trees to catch Pokemon that I was trying to remember fastest route to check most of Honey trees possible to get them. Sadly, I can't find Munchlax there though.

I've gotten some results from those Honey Trees. Wurmple, Combee, Cherubi, Heracross, Aipom, but never the elusive Munchlax. It gets annoying though to return the next day to either find something you've already caught or simply nothing there.

Yes, but it was boring. I originally planned to use Heracross on my team, but I had horrible luck and never got it after many attempts, so I had to use Medicham instead.

Honey Trees were like a more annoying and time-comsuming version of headbutt trees. I didn't care for most of the pokémon you could get via this method and I never used it.

I liked the whole Honey Tree aspect because of Combee/Vespiquen. I really like Vespiquen so I always made sure to slap some honey on every tree in and around the Floaroma Town/ Valley Windworks area.

And I believe if you save before you check the tree and SR the gender and level of the Pokemon changes which was a handy way to get the female I needed. I'm not sure if the Pokemon changed as well, it's been a long time since I've played through Gen IV Sinnoh.

Honey.. ugh. Not my favorite feature since I was generally quite forgetful and a little bit impatient, so I only gave this a shot a few times. Do remember finding Munchlax once but not being able to catch it. :(

I spent soooooo much time trying to get Munchlax this way! Although I usually enjoy it when pokemon are are, I felt as though honey trees were a bit too real-life time consuming. If it's something like Feebas tiles, or Lapras at the end of Union Cave, a person can do this at whatever pace they like. When it came to the honey trees, you had to wait 24 hours per tree.

I really wanted a Heracross but I couldn't be bothered with the honey tree thing.
When I did use them, though, I found nothing but male Combee and a couple of Burmy.

Whenever I slathered the barks with honey, I always forgot to check them out the next day. That's why, I've never been able to encounter any kind of Pokémon from these trees. Even if I did check them, I probably wouldn't have been able to run into Munchlax anyway, since the chances of encountering this Pokémon were quite slim. ):

NO I am NOT about to slather the bark with honey because my dumb butt will forget about that mess. lmao I hate honey trees. I always forget them and it was just inefficient imo cause it took too long for a Pokemon to show up. :(

I did it semi-consistently for about a year and a half, trying to catch a Munchlax. Finally, when I reached the end of the game and just wanted to finish the Sinnoh Dex, I made it a priority. There were 20 trees, and you had to wait 8hrs after slathering each tree for a Pokemon to appear. It took NINE DAYS of routinely slathering honey three times a day on each tree before I FINALLY found a Munchlax. I remember it was at night, 'cause I caught it in a Dusk Ball. Grumble... 1% chance encounter rate my eye... Just over those nine days that was over 500 attempts (20 x 3 x 9), not to mention the hundreds of tries the year or two prior! More like 0.1% or less!!
