The process for obtaining Combee and its fully-evolved form, Vespiquen, can be pretty difficult in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.
You’ll need to catch Combee and evolve it into Vespiquen if you wish to complete the Sinnoh Pokedex. However, just like Munchlax and Beldum, Combee has a specific catching method in Diamond and Pearl. In fact, you won’t be able to encounter this honey-loving Pokemon in the wild at all, unless you’re willing to have a little patience.
While the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes may look different in their design, the Pokemon roster and their catching methods will remain unchanged. This means that the requirements for obtaining Combee and Vespiquen will likely be the same.
Whether you just want to catch ‘em all or wish to add Combee and its evolved form to your roster, then you’ll want to come prepared.
This Bug/Flying-type Pokemon can not be encountered under normal methods. So, before you go wasting any time running around in the Diamond and Pearl’s tall grass, be sure to follow these steps below:
Honey Trees house some rare Pokemon in Diamond and Pearl, so it’s integral that you know where they all are. The relatively low spawn rate of some Honey Tree Pokemon can also make utilizing more than one tree essential, especially if you wish to save yourself some time.
All of Diamond and Pearl’s Honey Trees can be found at the following destinations on the game’s map:
In order to get a Vespiquen in Diamond and Pearl, you’ll first need to catch a female Combee. Unfortunately, female Combee only have a 12.5% encounter rate, meaning you’ll likely need to rinse and repeat the above catching method. Once you manage to catch a female Combee, simply raise it to level 21.
As you can see, the evolution process is incredibly easy and should only take a few minutes depending on how far into the game you are.
Now that you know how to add Combee and Vespiquen to your team in Diamond and Pearl, you’ll be ready for the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Remakes. Be sure to check out our Pokemon hub for all the latest Pokemon guides and news.
