Pokémon Platinum Version Tips

Honey Tree Variable
After slathering honey on a tree and waiting twelve hours, a pokemon will appear in the tree. What most people don't know is that if you save the game beforehand, the pokemon in the tree will stay the same, but it's level and gender will change every time. This is a perfect way to catch Burmy and Combee of the gender you're looking for, as it matters in regards to evolution.

Keep in mind that time 'can' run out, and the pokemon may disappear if you try restarting for more than an hour.
