How to Get Honey in Pokemon BDSP
To get honey you need to travel to Floaroma Town. This city is filled with flowers and meadows. It is here that you can get your hands on honey. Use your map to travel to Floaroma Meadow for your first honey experience.
Floaroma Meadow may not open unless you get the quest objective to find the Work’s Key. This involves taking on a member of Team Galactic guarding the door to the works. You can see our video guide below on how to start and complete this Pokemon Diamond and Pearl quest.
Start the quest, battle the man at the works, then get the objective for the second key. A path to the meadow will open up. As you enter the meadow, you will see two members of Team Galactic bullying a man to hand over his honey.
If you defeat them, he will give you the Works Key. He will also give you a jar of honey as a gift. In any instance, from now on you can always buy it from him for 100 credits.
How to Use Honey Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
