Honey is a method of catching Pokémon introduced in Generation IV. When put on certain trees, sometimes a Pokémon will appear later at 6 and a half hours. The player can tell what trees to put honey on by their yellow coloration. They can also be used on trees that cut can be used on. Honey can be purchased from a salesman in Floaroma Meadow, which is located north of Floaroma Town. Each honey costs 100 Poké dollars. You can find honey throughout the game as well. The Pokémon Combee's ability, Honey Gather, will find honey as it travels with the player in your active party. In Floaroma Meadow, there is a lot of hidden Honey. Honey is also used in Generation VI to attract hordes of Pokémon.
Pokémon found by using Honey
- Silcoon (Pokémon Diamond)
- Cascoon (Pokémon Pearl)
- In the Floaroma Meadow, there is a pair of Team Galactic grunts who try to steal honey, hoping to use it to "attract Pokémon in great numbers." This came true in Pokémon X and Y, as honey can now be used to create wild Horde Encounters.
- In Generation II, there is unused text for Honey named Sweet Honey, implying it was planned to debut in Pokémon Gold & Silver. The item works the same as normal Honey, with the player being able to put it on trees to attract Pokémon a day later.
