When used in tall grass, Honey acts in a manner similar to the move Sweet Scent, starting a wild Pokémon battle. In Generation VI, this will trigger a Horde Encounter if they are present in the area; however, in Pokémon X and Y, it cannot cause a wild encounter if the overworld weather is not clear.

In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Versions, Honey is first obtained after the player saves a Honey-selling man from Team Galactic in Floaroma Meadow, near Floaroma Town. He will reward the player with some of his Honey. From then onwards, the player will be able to purchase Honey from him in Floaroma Meadow for 100 each.

Multiple units of Honey (two in Diamond and Pearl, six in Platinum) are hidden in Floaroma Meadow and may be found using the Dowsing Machine Pokétch app. In Platinum, after the initial six hidden Honeys are found, two will regenerate in the same locations each day thereafter. [1]


There are many units of Honey scattered throughout the region, from Route 205 to Route 222. These include two hidden units of Honey, one in a yellow crate in the kitchen of the Old Chateau and another on a solitary gravestone on floor 2F of the Lost Tower.

In X and Y, the player can find respawning jars of Honey on Routes 12, 18, and at Pokémon Village. They can also find three jars on on Route 4, and will receive three more from Trevor on Route 5, when he teaches the player about Horde Encounters.

Honey is always held by wild Combee in Generation IV and Black and White, and is rarely (5% chance) held by wild Combee from Black 2 and White 2 onwards, wild Surskit in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire onwards, and wild Cutiefly in Sun and Moon onwards.

Once Honey is slathered on a Honey tree and at least 6 real-time hours have passed, a Pokémon may appear on the tree. If a tree is left unchecked for 24 hours, both the Honey and any Pokémon will be gone. Changing the Nintendo DS’s clock will have no impact on the Honey tree‘s timer.

There are 21 Honey trees spread throughout Sinnoh. Four of them have a chance to attract Munchlax; these trees are selected when the game begins, based on the player’s Trainer ID and Secret ID. The special Munchlax trees are visually indistinguishable from normal trees and cannot be changed short of starting a new game. In general, Munchlax trees are more likely to contain rarer wild Pokémon species, most notably Munchlax itself.

The species of Pokémon (or whether one will appear at all) is determined at the time a tree is slathered. Therefore, once a tree is slathered, saving the game and resetting will not change the Pokémon that will appear on it. However, its level, gender, Nature, IVs, and other random values may change.

Which four Honey trees can contain Munchlax depends on the player’s Trainer ID and secret ID [2] (referred to herein as tid and sid). These numbers are 2-byte values, and the game splits each into single bytes. tid 1 and sid 1 will refer to the lower byte of each ID number (calculable by id % 256), while tid 2 and sid 2 will refer to the higher byte (calculable by id / 256).

The game checks if any of these are equal. If A is equal to B, B is increased by 1. The game then checks A against C, followed by B against C, adding 1 to C if it is equal after either check. Then the game checks A against D, followed by B against D, and then C against D, and adds 1 to D if it is equal after any of the checks. If at any point any of B, C, or D would equal 21, they are set to 0 instead.

The final values of A, B, C, and D represent the locations of the Munchlax trees. The number can be treated as a 0-based index into the list of Honey tree locations above. That is, if A = 10, that means the Honey tree on Route 212 south can contain Munchlax.

When the game generates a species of wild Pokémon to appear on a Honey tree, it first chooses from one of three possible groups of Pokémon before choosing a Pokémon from within that group. These groups are shown in the table below. The 17 non-Munchlax trees have a 70% chance of choosing from Group A, a 20% chance of choosing from Group B, a 0% chance of choosing from Group C, and a 10% chance of choosing no encounter. The four Munchlax trees have a 20% chance of choosing from Group A, a 70% chance of choosing from Group B, a 1% chance of choosing from Group C, and a 9% chance of choosing no encounter.

When Honey is slathered on a tree, if that tree is also the last tree that was slathered, there is a 90% chance that the game will pick the same group as it did the last time. If the tree’s last slathering did not produce any Pokémon, it will be treated [ citation needed] as if the tree had selected Group A.

If the tree being slathered was also the last tree slathered (and the tree is empty), there is a 90% chance that the tree will attract a Pokémon from the same group that was used before. This will render the rates below inaccurate. See above for an explanation of the sets and the exact rarities of Pokémon.

In Some Enchanted Sweetening!, Honey was slathered on a tree, attracting several wild Bug-type and Grass-type Pokémon as well Ash’s Aipom and a wild Burmy. The Honey appeared to have been slathered by Cheryl, who wanted to catch a male Burmy to help her find the Enchanted Honey. Cheryl later explained to the group that Enchanted Honey was Honey gathered by Combee in the Amber Castle, located deep in Eterna Forest, which is said to be hundreds of times sweeter than normal Honey. With the help of Ash and his friends, and with her Mothim leading the way, she located the hive of a Vespiquen and its many worker Combee. After helping defend the hive from Team Rocket, the Vespiquen shared some of its Enchanted Honey with Cheryl, Ash, his friends, and some of their Pokémon. All of them loved the Enchanted Honey, except for Brock’s Croagunk, who looked disgusted by the sweet flavor.

In Honey for Combee, as Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum ventured into Floaroma Town, Diamond and his Pokémon smelt Honey and ran off to lick it off a tree. Later, the trio ventured into the Valley Windworks where they met Mars. She filled the Windworks control room with sand in order to do away with them. Pearl and Platinum ended up outside the building and were able to uncover Diamond’s location inside the building and save him thanks to a group of Combee being attracted by the scent of Honey on Diamond and his Pokémon.

• Honey may originally have been planned for Generation II, where unused text refers to an item called Sweet Honey (Japanese: あまいミツ Sweet Honey), which could be used to attract Pokémon by slathering it on a tree and waiting about a day, nearly identical to its behavior in Generation IV.

• In Wake Up—You’re Snorlax!, Red uses Beedrill honey that had fallen on his Bulbasaur to wake up a sleeping Snorlax. As a result, the awoken Snorlax chases after Red for the honey all the way to the finish line; the sight shocking the announcer and onlookers.
