    What you're describing now sounds exactly like my experience. I didn't count how many attempts it took me, but I felt like it took ~2 months to find munchlax (but only slathering honey once per day.) In hindsight, I should have just used the GTS for that Munchlax

      Back in year 2006, I find the idea of Honey Tree amusing and quite creative.
      Reminded me of the old Headbutt Trees from GSC series.
      When I first encounter them in my Japanese Pearl, I used them to hunt Combee and Burmy.
      But as time progress I found it annoying, since I tend to forget about them.
      Eventually I 'forget' about their existence...

        Err, koff~

        Just make a Snorlax hold the 'Full Incense' and breed it with a ditto. I hope you don't facepalm too hard, my friend. Or was it that you had to complete the Pokedex to be able to use the Pal Park? In that case I feel bad.

        I believe that the honey trees, while good in theory, was poorly executed. Now I just roam about in Pokemon White with a number of Combee to farm honey for fun, koffi~

          I know that, but my personal rule is that I have to catch each Pokemon within the generation and complete the regional Pokedex before beating the Elite 4. So yeah, Pal Park was not yet available to me. Trust me, it was tempting to just wait and do that, but I just wasn't giving up!

            I would do it all of the time but I'd keep forgetting about it everytime! XD I really badly wanted to get an Aipom so that's why I'd keep slathering on that honey! Otherwise I probably wouldn't have used it much.

            ...Never did get that Aipom. :c
