Catching Mareep in Pokemon Y?

0 votes

Ok, so I've watched all the videos and they all say to go to route 12 and use honey to get a horde of mareep to appear.

However, everytime I try this all that I get is a horde of Wingulls. Each and everytime. I've tried over a dozen times and honey is becoming hard to come by.

Is there anything I'm missing?

Elite four? Special number of badges? Certain Pokemon level? Certain place in the game I need to get past?

I already have the mega stone for Amphros so can someone pelase tell me what I'm missing??

Maybe lead with a pokemon with static, as that increases the chances of Electric types appearing? I haven't caught one myself, though, but I haven't tried to either (it's on my to-do list)
^ Yep. If it's a weak Pokemon, switch it out for a ground type like Diggersby. Or you could faint it and leave it at the beginning of your part & static would still work, but that's a bit mean.

Here, it says that you can only find mareep in hordes, and they are less common than wingulls. It's possible you aren't getting very lucky and just need to try a bit more with more honey.

Having a lead Pokemon with static:

will increase your chances of encountering electric type Pokemon in areas where electric types can be found, including mareep.

I'd just say get a lead static Pokemon and use lots of honey. You shouldn't need any badges or whatever to be able to find mareep.

I hope this helps!
