Pokémon BDSP Honey Tree Spawns: All Honey Pokémon in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Honey trees is the perfect place for shade and that's just how I feel.

by Elliott Gatica

An interesting mechanic that made its way to the Diamond and Pearl remakes is the use of honey in certain interactable trees. This allowed for certain Pokemon to be lured in, allowing for the trainer to go up to the tree and battle them. It’s very complementary to the berry system in the sense that you monitor the locations you slather honey on and revisit them hours later. Here is all you need to know about the honey trees in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

How honey trees work in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Honey trees are something you’ll see as early as hitting the Valley Windworks. They’ll appear yellow in color and can be interacted with. If you interact with it, a text prompt will come up about slathering it with honey.


What you’ll need is honey, an item that is cheaply obtained in the game. You put it on the tree, turning it into bait for certain Pokemon to come in. It’s like fishing, but it takes six hours for a Pokemon to take that bait. It’s best to put honey on multiple trees in the Sinnoh region.

Next, to monitor the status of your trees, open up your map. You’ll see some options on the bottom of this screen. Click the plus (+) button to open up the Location Info menu. There, you can check where berry patches are, along with honey trees. You can locate vacant honey trees along with those that are currently baiting Pokemon and those that have a Pokemon reeled in.
