View Full Version : How long did it take you to catch Feebas?

March 15th, 2010, 10:35 PM
Getting Milotic doesn't really seem worth the effort of catching Feebas! I spent 5 hours actually catching Feebas, then I spent about 3 days growing the berries to turn it into a Milotic! What's the procedure for caching a Feebas anyway?

March 15th, 2010, 10:37 PM
Well I took me about 30 minutes to an hour.
I am considered lucky, because I know someone that wasted 10 hours on catching feebas and then the game malfunctioned! :O

Go to Route 119 and fish in every spot avaliable with a super rod (you can use any rod, but super rod is the best because your only other option is carvannha). There are 6 specific tiles that you can catch a Feebas on. It's actually pretty common when you do find the right spot, though, but just to be sure, you should probably fish about 5 times per tile. If for some reason you want to restart, just go to Dewford Town and reset the Trendy Phrase.

Make sure your Feebas is one of the natures that likes dry food. That means Modest, Mild, Quiet, and Rash. Make a helluva lot of Pokeblocks/Poffins that are blue and dry. Best Berry to use is the Ganlon Berry, because that raises Beauty the most. But, you can make do with any berry that is dry (that's any berry that is blue in color. the game producers did that on purpose and made the color of every berry correspond to what stats it raise). When you think you have enough Pokeblocks/Poffins to max out beauty, go for it! I'd make sure that you save before doing this if I were you, because otherwise you'll have to start all over. Once he caps Beauty, level him up once to start the evolution, and you're good to go!

i think i spent more than a day(can't remember) coz i don't play it too long on a day

March 16th, 2010, 2:02 AM
took me around an hour to find a feebass and around a day to evolve into a milotic
one quick question I have never had one in the fourth gen where an I find a feebass or do I have to trade it over I don't play 4th gen much so I do not know where it would be

March 16th, 2010, 2:55 AM
It took me 2 hours to found a feebas and a half day to make her become Milotic

March 17th, 2010, 9:11 AM
I find it strange they placed something so rare, somewhat methodical and yet unexplained in the game...

I knew about the six tiles, but didn't spend much time after I gave up; Dragonair is prettier anyway, I think.

I kept track on a calendar...
Prepare for an EPIC FAIL!

164 days.

Wow. FAIL me.
But it is LV100 and has beaten the Beauty Contest Master Rank like 50 times.

March 17th, 2010, 5:45 PM
Hmm....about 45 minutes, But it was worth it.

March 18th, 2010, 4:26 AM
i consder myself very lucky on my latest run through in ruby, caught groudon full health with the first ball used which was a great ball and i caught 5 feebas in 20min, they came one after another in the same spot under the bridge on the far left side, i didnt even change that phrase thing in dewford...the only thing thats getting on my nerves is evolving it, i fed one all level 20+ berries and it didnt evolve, it was so close... now im spending days and days growing pamtre berries that are level 50, but they take over 24 hours to grow :(

March 18th, 2010, 5:14 AM
i was lucky i was fishing and there it was i wasnt looking for it or anything i just found it caught it and now one of it offspring is in my platinum game

March 18th, 2010, 5:15 AM
I tried for about 30 minutes and gave up. I never caught a Feebas, and I don't think it's worth it honestly. If I'm going to have an ugly brown fish, I'd much rather go for Relicanth because they're awesome. Well not so much if you take into consideration they have a quadruple weakness to Grass. I think it's awesome though that some people are willing to take the time to look for the elusive Feebas, which only seems to stay in one spot for hours on end. Why didn't they do that with Slowpoke? lol. Anyways, I just wish it were a bit simpler to get a Pokemon, even if it gives you perfect Beauty contests every time.

March 18th, 2010, 10:19 AM
About 5 mins. This was on a friends game, of course. I've NEVER seen a wild feebas in any of my games (though my luck isn't that bad; 5 out of the 6 Latias' that i've caught have been with Pokeballs). I quickly traded it over to my game, bred one for myself, and gave it the bunch of blue Pokeblocks i'd been saving up anyway for the contests and voila! A brilliant Milotic. That Marvel Scale (or whatever it's ability is called) is really really handy coupled with Rest.

When I didn't know Feebas was so rare, I just surfed at Route 119 and voila there was Feebas

March 18th, 2010, 2:20 PM
20 minutes, never going to do that again. I'll just rebreed the Milotic I have if I want a new Feebas....

March 18th, 2010, 2:31 PM
Ugh, I still haven't caught a Feebas till this day. I can never find those six tiles. :(

March 19th, 2010, 2:13 AM
Haha, I have no idea. Probably like seven or eight hours, I remember staying up one night, sitting in bed, trying every tile about ten times. I caught a shiny Carvana (sp?) so it was worth it when I finally found one. I spent maybe twenty minutes catching them, to trade to friend for money. Haha, I was such a cool fourteen year old. But yeah, I traded a lot of them over to Pokémon Box, and then raised like three into Milotics, Ev training them the whole time. I now have a very very fast Milotic whose Ice Beams are soething to ~marvel~ at. Yes, I am extremely lame. :[

March 20th, 2010, 7:21 AM
Not long since i first read a guide on where to catch it. after that i breed so many.

March 21st, 2010, 4:02 PM
I found one in the second tile I tried. So I'd put the estimate at around five minutes or so. :D

March 22nd, 2010, 4:57 AM
I'll forever remember that fateful day: My sis, my bro and me were on the lookout for Feebas since quite a while. We had an unexpected day off and we decided to make a strategy: We devided the the 2 seas in the route into three parts. and so we did it: My bro, with his Ruby, took the northern part of the sea next to the Weather Institute, my sis, with her Sapphire, took the southern part if that sea and at last but not at least, I, with my Emerald, took the sea in the south of the route. And so, I went to my part, together with my Super Rod, my aichu and lots of motivation. After 2 hours, I've checked every part of the sea but I haven't found anything. I pwned every Carvahna I found (my Raichu was 15 levels higher after that btw)!^^ Around 10 minutes later, my sis screamed! She found a Feebas-spot! We fastly went there and caught some Feebas. Afterwards, we had a Pokeblock-party!^^

Ahh, good times...^^

Several. Freaking. Weeks.

GOD, it was so stupid. This is what happened:

I started from the bottom, and I worked my way up, fishing five times on every tile before I moved on. Then, I skipped a few tiles because I thought I had already fished there. BAD idea. So I worked my way up to the waterfall, then up the waterfall, and then I finally found it. Not above the waterfall though. It was obviously on one of the tiles I had skipped. I was SOOO happy, and yet I felt so stupid.

I'm glad i'll never have to do it again unless my Platinum screws up.

March 22nd, 2010, 5:02 PM
It was the first tile I fished on, after about the third cast, so I would estimate less than a minute. Serious luck, there. I will never change the trendy phrase, though. I like that spot (it's one of the closest tiles to Fortree City). This happened about two weeks ago, after I got the Silph Scope from Steven.

Seven years and still counting. x_x

March 22nd, 2010, 6:59 PM
I caught feebas and it took me about an hour.

I feel so guilty saying I found one the first time I fished for something ): so, about thirty seconds.

April 2nd, 2010, 9:43 AM
At first i felt lucky... catching one in 10 minutes. 10 MINUTES!!!!!! Then my annoying cousin jacks me for my game and turns off the power without saving.....Then I looked again and it took like half a day. And Milotic isn't even that great there are way better water pokemon(Vaporeon,Gyrados, Wailord to name a few)

April 2nd, 2010, 7:34 PM
After going through each individual tile, it took me a couple hours to finally get feebas.

April 3rd, 2010, 12:51 AM
Just half of an hour. I also managed to catch a shiny Magikarp while looking for Feebas.=D

April 3rd, 2010, 2:48 PM
I gave up after an hour or two. I was too lazy to continue looking.

April 3rd, 2010, 8:07 PM
dude i caught in like 10 minutes.damn lucky.it spawned when i fished the third time then breed it with my ditto.holy crap my other cartridge took 3 hour to get it....

April 3rd, 2010, 9:20 PM
Ive only searched for it once. Ten seconds
I decided I wanted a feebass I went to the area and the first fishing spot I chose yielded a Feebass on first try. I caught a few more (I knew id forget the spot) After catching 14 reg and 1 SHINY (Number 4) I left. Wouldnt you know it none of them were SP. ATK boosting natured Feebass

September 8th, 2010, 6:25 PM
LOL I was browsing the forums just now while trying to catch mine; have been working on it for about 2 hours. I was spaced out and reading a page on stumbleupon and nearly choked on my gum when I looked down at my gameboy and saw one on my screen XD.

September 8th, 2010, 7:44 PM
the forth tile i fished on so one minute..... and then 2 weeks later i found a shiny one cause i used the same tile but reseted my game.... :(

September 8th, 2010, 8:47 PM
In my first Sapphire playthrough: it took me around an hour to an hour and a half to look for Feebas (it popped up, albeit unintentionally).

might will fate
September 8th, 2010, 10:29 PM
Only 10 secondsi fished 2 times bu tnothign then a feebas yey!

September 8th, 2010, 10:35 PM
I never looked for one, a friend traded me a Milotic. so now when I need a Feebas, I just throw Milotic and Ditto together in the daycare.

September 8th, 2010, 11:38 PM
10 days!! i went crazy just because of looking for a feebas!!
but after that i found 2 shiny feebas...lucky~

September 9th, 2010, 6:34 AM
Between 30mins to 2hours. I spent 2 hours in a waiting room so I decided to whip-out Ruby to waste time...I had caught Feebas before the 2 hours was up.
Its totally worth any amount of time to me, I love Milotic!

September 9th, 2010, 7:00 AM
I still haven't caught one yet. After eight years of several different playthroughs, my internal battery has run dry, and not one Feebas has been found.

September 9th, 2010, 7:05 AM
I took me 2 hours to catch a feebas, and around an hour to turn it in to milotic.

Never really bothered to. Hmmmmmmmm. I haven't played pokemon for about 2 or 3 years ==". Now I feel like playing it...

Dragonair looks prettier =3


September 13th, 2010, 3:05 PM
It took me 2 full days... I hate it. xD

September 13th, 2010, 4:37 PM
well i never like that thing i was fishing for something dont remebr and i ended up catching feebas and i was like why not and than i lost my sapphire game like 1 month later after that i learn feebas was hard to catch and about the 6 squares go figure but i ended up getting another one in a trade =]

September 14th, 2010, 12:45 AM
Still haven't found one after two years, but I sort of gave up.
I was satisfied enough with the shiny Carvanha I caught instead 8D

September 14th, 2010, 11:35 AM
I never caught one on my Sapphire, but on Ruby I thought I'll have a try, and It was the first pokemon I found. So naturally I caught 3, and now have too many Feebas for my own good. :P

September 20th, 2010, 2:14 PM
I caught a Feebas on the second encounter. I thought I'd start at the bottom of the river first (near the house) and I think I was fishing (don't remember) then on the second encounter it was all like "A wild Feebas appeared." Too bad I restarted my Emerald so that I could get a shiny starter :P

September 20th, 2010, 4:12 PM
The last time I caught a Feebas was on accident. ^^; But I'm gonna be spending alot of time finding a female Feebas for my manga challenge...

October 2nd, 2010, 5:04 PM
i never really like feebas so i didn't have experience getting one..

October 2nd, 2010, 6:43 PM
It actually took me so long to try and catch Feebas, so I ended up just getting one off the GTS. :P
