PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

At noon, I slathered honey on all my trees for the sake of my Oak Challenge, and now, nearly 8 hours later, none of them have any Pokemon. The guide I'm following says there'll be a Pokemon ready every 6 hours. When interacting, it says the tree is slathered in honey.

Edit: I've tried turning my DS lite off and on, leaving and re entering buildings, and nothing worked. However, I switched the game over to my 3DS and it triggered an encounter. Can anyone tell me what's up with this? the game is also a bootleg.

Edit 2: Day two, and my honey trees should've been ready 4 to 5ish hours ago, since I put new honey on this morning. Now, none of my DS systems are triggering an encounter. All trees still say they're slathered in honey, though. I also want to add that I never change the time on my consoles, since a lot of people tend to think that... I'll edit tomorrow and try on my Legit copy of Pearl version to see if it happens on that too, just to see if it has to do the bootlegness or not.

That means you waited 8 hours, not 6.
i said, i went back every half hour to check after exactly six hours.
okay sorry.
@staff can i just like hide this question? At this point it feels like its impossible to tell what the heck happened and i'm tired of guess answers, and ive just kind of accepted that only a dataminer would be able to answer it
Yeah probably hide it. The only possible solutions at this point is something wrong with your game/save file/ds

  1. Your game is a bootleg therefore is unreliable and unpredictable

  2. Your ds is broken in some capacity

  3. There is a 10% chance whenever you slather honey that no Pokemon will appear at all.
