Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in olden times in the Pokemon world when it was rare to find harmony between people and Pokemon. Set in the Hisui region, modern-day Sinnoh, you will join the Galaxy Expedition Team (Galaxy Team for short) as a member of the Survey Corps stationed in Jubilife Village. You will be tasked to meet every Hisui Pokemon species to complete the region’s first-ever Pokédex.

How to Complete “The Taste of Honey” Request (Request 57) in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

The Galaxy Team will task the player to do missions in the game. Additionally, various people will also ask for help from the player requests. One of these requests is Request 57, titled ‘The Taste of Honey.’ This guide will teach you how to complete ‘The Taste of Honey’ request.

The Taste of Honey

To unlock this request, the player must first unlock Basculegion as a rideable Pokemon which is part of ‘The Lordless Island’ Mission (the tenth mission in the game). The player must quell a frenzied Hisuian Arcanine. Additionally, the player must first encounter or catch a Combee and add it to the player’s Pokedex.

Combee can be found in the Obsidian Fieldlands (Grueling Grove, Ramanas Island, and in the east and west of The Heartwood), the Crimson Mirelands (around Cloudpool Ridge, Lake Valor, north of Cottonsedge Prairie, south of Droning Meadow, and west of Gapejaw Bog), and the Cobalt Coastlands (near Aipom Hill). Combee can be found in these locations at all times of day and in every weather condition.

After doing the requirements mentioned, you can now start this request! To do just that, head on to the Galaxy Hall and proceed to Professor Laventon’s room on the left side of Captain Cyllene’s office. In Professor Laventon’s room, you will find a blackboard just behind Professor Laventon himself. There are a few requests on this blackboard that the player can take on. Read what is on the blackboard and the prompt, and select ‘The Taste of Honey’ request. And, just like that, ‘The Taste of Honey’ request has started!

According to the request description, a member of the Agriculture Corps named Almous has a request regarding the flavor of honey produced by Combee. To complete this request, this is what the player must do:

  1. First, head out of Professor Laventon’s office and the Galaxy Hall, then head to the middle row of houses in Jubilife Village and enter the second door on the right side of the houses (assuming the Galaxy Hall is behind the player). 
  2. Inside the house, you will find Almous, a member of the Agriculture Corps. Talk to Almous, and he will tell the player that he has been gathering Combee honey for work, and he thinks that the Combee’s honey’s flavor varies between groups of Combee. He will then tell the player that he wants to look into the differences but collecting honey from Combee hives in different areas is too much for him. So, Almous will ask the player to bring him, Combee from three different areas. 
  3. First, Almous will ask the player to catch a Combee from Grueling Grove for him. Head to Grueling Grove, which is on the northeast part of the map in the Obsidian Fieldlands, then catch one Combee. Suppose you decide to battle the Combee before catching it.
  4. In that case, it is worth noting that Combee is a Bug-type and Flying-type Pokemon which means it is weak against Electric-type, Fire-type, Flying-type, Ice-type, and, especially, Rock-type moves (super effective), resistant to Bug-type and, especially, Fighting-type and Grass-type moves (not very effective), and immune to Ground-type moves (no effect). Combee’s preferred foods are Dazzling Honey, Hearty Grains, and Plump Beans if you plan to distract it with food.
  5. After catching one from Grueling Grove in the Obsidian Fieldlands, head back to Almous, still in his quarters in the middle of Jubilife Village, and show him the Combee you just caught. Almous will then try a sample of Combee’s honey, and he will say that it is exactly how honey should be, which according to him, tastes like a distilled drop of nutritious, forest-y goodness. Almous will say, however, that he has a feeling that it does not quite taste like honey from other areas.
  6. Next, Almous will ask the player to catch a Combee from Aipom Hill. So, head to Aipom Hill, which is on the southeast part of the map in the Cobalt Coastlands, and catches one Combee.
  7. After catching one Combee from Aipom Hill in the Cobalt Coastlands, head back to Almous in Jubilife Village and show him the Combee from Aipom Hill. Almous will try a sample of this Combee’s honey once again, and he will say that it is not too heavy on the sweetness. According to him, it is just plain and simple honey that is good enough to serve on its own and tastes different from the Combee’s honey from Grueling Grove in the Obsidian Fieldlands.
  8. Lastly, Almous will ask the player to catch a Combee from Ramanas Island. Head to Ramanas Island, which is an island on the southeast of the Obsidian Fieldlands, and catch one last Combee. It is important to mention that the Combee in this area can only be found from shaking trees which can be done by simply aiming and throwing one of your Pokemon to a shaking tree.
  9. Then your Pokemon will strike the tree, and a Pokemon (hopefully a Combee) will leap out at you. However, if there are no shaking trees on Ramanas Island, the player would have to reset the map by returning to Jubilife Village and then returning to Ramanas Island in the Obsidian Fieldlands. You would have to repeat this process if necessary.
  10. After catching a Combee from a tree in Ramanas Island in the Obsidian Fieldlands, head back to Almous in Jubilife Village, show him the Combee from Ramanas Island, and, for the last time, he will try a sample of this Combee’s honey. He will say that this type of honey begs to be stirred into a cup of tea, and there must be something different about its flowers.
  11. Almous will then conclude that Combees in different areas makes differently flavored honey. As there are so many different clusters of Combee in Obsidian Fieldlands alone, he is now getting the urge to go collect more honey. Almous will then thank the player for helping him confirm his suspicions, and he will reward the player with three King’s Leaf and three Dazzling Honey for his efforts.

Now that you have completed ‘The Taste of Honey’ Request, you can now try to complete other requests, complete missions, or complete Arceus’ task for you, which is to catch ‘em all!
