What You Need To Know On How To Evolve Feebas Into Milotic
Important Details Of Milotic
Milotic’s strength lies in its Sp. Attack and most importantly its Sp. Defense. It has very low physical stats, so it mostly relies on the special aspect. It has average defense and speed, so most players use it as a defensive Pokemon. It learns a lot of Water-type moves and Ice and Dragon-type moves in the later Generations. Speaking of moves, it has several moves that help it sustain itself in battle such as Refresh, Recover, and Safeguard.
How To Evolve Feebas Into Milotic
Evolving Milotic in Generation III and VI
First of all, you need a Feebas to start the process. An interesting point is that in Generation VI, the X and Y games do not have Feebas so you can only get one through a trade. The remake games Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby are pretty much the same as the Generation III games in terms of the Feebas location, and the method of evolving it into Milotic. In the Generation III games except for FireRed and LeafGreen, you can catch a Feebas in Route 119. This is the same location for Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.
That’s when the complete guide on how to evolve Feebas into Milotic comes in. In Generation III and IV, evolving Milotic is a bit tricky because you need to raise its Beautiful condition or simply Beauty high enough.
How to Raise the Beautiful Condition In Generation III
Just as we stated, this can only be done in Pokemon Sapphire, Ruby, and Emerald. In order to raise the Feebas’ Beauty above 170. The way to do it is by feeding your Feebas a Blue or Indigo PokeBlock. When the Beautiful Condition is above 170, the next time Feebas levels up, it will automatically evolve into Milotic.
How to Make Blue or Indigo PokeBlocks
You simply need the right combination of Berries and use the Berry Blender in the Contest Halls. Below is a chart as to which Berries you can mix to get the right colored PokeBlock that you need. Considering that this is a guide on how to evolve Feebas into Milotic, you don’t need to worry about the Berries decreasing other conditions since your goal isn’t joining the contests but rather just evolving Milotic.
Evolving Milotic in Generation IV
In the Generation IV games except for HeartGold and Soul Silver, you can catch Feebas in Mt. Coronet. You still need to raise the Feebas’ Beautiful Condition, but this time up to 200 or more and level it up and it will evolve into Milotic. The change here is that you won’t be feeding your Feebas PokeBlocks, but rather something called Poffins. The right Poffins to feed your Feebas is the Dry Poffins which are the Blue ones.
Important Things About Feeding Poffins
First of all, if you want to make Poffins, you can do it at the Poffin House. Save before you start baking in case something goes wrong and you don’t want to gather Berries again. We also included specific Berries that you can use to make Dry Poffins below. One other important thing is that your Feebas as well as other Pokemon can only eat a limited amount of Poffins. They can only eat 11 and if the Beautiful Condition hasn’t reached the required level yet, then it will not evolve and you will have no other way of feeding it.
Berries You Can Use to Make Dry Poffins
- Chesto Berry
- Passho Berry
- Oran Berry
- Kebia Berry
- Wiki Berry
- Charti Berry
- Razz Berry
- Chilan Berry
- Kelpsy Berry
- Apicot Berry
- Cornn Berry
- Micle Berry
- Pamtre Berry
That’s why it is important to save before you make Poffins. If you have an abundance of Berries to make more Dry Poffins, then save before you feed your Feebas. That way, you can test out if the Poffin combinations you used are enough to raise its Beauty to the required rating which is around 200 or more. Finally, be wary of your Feebas’s Nature because depending on the Nature, it may not eat the Dry Poffin and the list below will tell you which is good.
Nature and Dry Poffin Reactions
Natures that have good reactions to Dry Poffin
Natures that have bad reactions to Dry Poffin
The other Natures not mentioned have a neutral reaction to Dry Poffins. This means that they are alright but won’t have any of the boosts from the Natures that do like Dry Poffins. You’ll still be able to evolve Feebas into Milotic although not as fast. You have to do a lot of Dry Poffin combination to get that 200 rating or more on Beauty.
How To Evolve Feebas In Generation V, VII, and VIII
These Generations give you somewhat of a breather. You don’t need to worry about raising your Feebas’ Beautiful Condition when you want to evolve it into a Milotic. You need a Prism Scale and a good friend. Basically, the Feebas needs to be holding the Prism Scale before you trade it with someone. That’s where your good friend can come in because you need it to be traded back to you. That’s right, it’s that easy to evolve Feebas into Milotic.
Feebas Locations In Generation V, VII, and VIII
- In Black, Black 2, White, and White 2, a Feebas can be caught in Route 1.
- In the same Generation V games, you can actually catch a fully evolved Milotic in Route 1 during a Rippling Water Phenomena. However, the encounter rate for it is only 5% but it’s an option if you don’t want to evolve a Feebas.
- In Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon a Feebas can be caught in Brooklet Hill.
- In Sword and Shield, a Feebas can be caught in Route 2, Lake of Outrage, Bridge Field, East Lake Axwell, and as a Raid in West Lake Axwell. The encounter rate for Feebas in these games is very low though.
Is Milotic any good?
Knowing the steps on how to evolve Feebas into Milotic is good, but the question is if it is worth the time? In the earlier Generations, you have to do a lot of work to get a Milotic. It depends on how you play because Milotic is a good defensive Pokemon that can also hit hard when given the right moves. It excels in the special aspect and can be good against Electric and Grass-types.
That’s because those types are strong against Milotic, but it’s Sp. Defense will not let it get knocked out in the first few attacks. Plus, a lot of Milotic’s moves allow it to be tanky and remove debuffs and status ailments. In a sense, it is good to have on your party when you don’t have any other suitable Water-types. Keep in mind it can also learn Ice and Dragon-type moves.
Now that you have an idea on how to evolve Feebas into Milotic, you may think twice about getting one or not. Given the fact that you already know how well it can excel in battle, it may be worth it to pump some effort into getting that Milotic. The good thing is that in the later Generations, you can just trade it and evolve.
However, that could be just as hard for some people especially if they have no one to trade it. Regardless, that’s part of the game plus you may also want to complete your Pokedex and having a Milotic is essential to that. Then again, if you are getting stressed out, always remember that it’s not worth getting worked up over with.
