About Sweet Honey Trees ...

#1icemagicianPosted 3/5/2008 9:21:39 AM
I've got some questions about the Sweet Honey Trees ...

1) Basically, you just slather the bark with honey and then wait a while? How long does one have to wait until a Pokemon is attracted?

2) Can one see when a Pokemon has been attracted (Does the tree rustle or shake or something)?

3) Does the Pokemon that has been attracted also disappear after a while? Like, let's say I put honey on the tree, turn the DS off, wait some hours, and go check - is there a time limit?

Thanks in advance! (b")b

Ah, just read the FAQ and got my answers.

Sorry for not reading the FAQs first... =(
Here's the info, Shringator:

=====================
||Honey Tree Guide ||
===========================================================================

Similar to the Headbutt feature first introduced in GSC, Honey trees are a
new way to catch certain Pokemon. In fact, there are 4 Pokemon you can only
get via the Honey Trees. So, how does one use them? First of all, you will
need the Honey item. Honey is sold in the Floaroma Meadow for 100p a piece
(You cannot buy in bulk like other items, however). Once you do catch a
Combee, you can also use its Honey Gather ability to get some after battle.

Secondly, you will need to find a honey tree. There are a total of 21 honey
trees all over Sinnoh. Here are the locations of the honey trees:

* Two on Route 205
* One on Route 206
* One on Route 207
* One on Route 208
* One on Route 209
* Two on Route 210
* One on Route 211
* Two on Route 212
* One on Route 213
* One on Route 214
* One on Route 215
* One on Route 218
* One on Route 221
* One on Route 222
* One in the Floaroma Meadow
* One near the Valley Windworks
* One near the Fuego Ironworks
* One near Eterna Forest

As you can see, there is pretty much a sweet honey tree in every area
besides the snow routes, the beginning routes before Floaroma Meadow, the
water routes, the battle area, and the areas around the Pokemon League.

So, how does honey trees work? You will first need at least one jar of honey
per tree. Go up to a tree and Press A and it will ask if you want to put
some honey on the tree. Press "yes" and the tree will be marked with honey.
Note that you can do this multiple times, but it will not make much of a
difference.

Next, the waiting game. Its takes about 8-12 hours for a tree to get a
Pokemon to come to it. You can encounter one of several Pokemon when using
the sweet honey trees. Here are the Pokemon that appear:


/-----------------------------\
|Pokemon |Rarity |
|----------|------------------|
|Wurmple |Common |
|Combee |Common |
|Silcoon |Uncommon (Diamond)|
|Cascoon |Uncommon (Pearl) |
|Burmy |Uncommon |
|Aipom |Uncommon |
|Cherubi |Uncommon |
|Heracross |Rare |
|Munchlax |Rare |
\-----------------------------/


As you can see, there are several rare Pokemon that can appear, with all
besides Wurmple, Silcoon, and Cascooon only catchable via the sweet honey
trees. So, how does one influence the Pokemon that appear? Well, you can't.
The game chooses what Pokemon appears before you even get there, so the type
of Pokemon is already decided (Although the level and gender changes if you
save and reset).

Best way to get a particular is to cover as many trees as you possibly can,
and check them about 6 hours later. If you cover all the trees, then that
is 21 possible Pokemon to find the one you want (Note that it will cost
2,100p to cover all the trees once if you do not use Combee's pick-up
ability).

[...]

Finally, note that the Pokemon will not stick around forever. After about a
day, the Pokemon that is on the tree will dissapear. Note that changing the
DS clock does not see to affect the trees, so you cannot simply change the
time to find the Pokemon you want.

1) Basically, you just slather the bark with honey and then wait a while? How long does one have to wait until a Pokemon is attracted?


yes. 6 hours is the time you want.


2) Can one see when a Pokemon has been attracted (Does the tree rustle or shake or something)?


I seen trees shake, and i seen them do nothing. just remember which trees you used


3) Does the Pokemon that has been attracted also disappear after a while? Like, let's say I put honey on the tree, turn the DS off, wait some hours, and go check - is there a time limit?


Yes, there is a time limit i believe. dont know how long the pokemon will stay around though

1.) Thats the basic idea, yes. I believe the wait time is 6 hours and 15 minutes. It actually counts the time passed, so changing the clock doesn't help. You don't have to be playing, though. Sometimes the honey doesn't "take", and you won't get anything, though. Maybe its intended.

2.) The tree shakes when a pokemon has been attracted. Fairly noticable.

3.) There's definately a limit on how long the pokemon will stick around. Its fairly long, though. I've come back around 16 hours later and the trees were still shaking, I believe.

There are no specific trees to get certain pokemon, BTW. Its completely random.

I had heard that Munchlax come sooner than other Pokemon and leaves faster... is that at all accurate?
