Some Pokemon in Pokemon GO are a bit of an investment. You might need to earn a certain number of candies to get it. (Far more than normal for a next-step evolution.) You might also need to set it as your buddy for a while. When it comes to getting a Feebas to evolve into a Milotic in Pokemon GO, you need to do both.
How do I catch a Feebas in Pokemon GO?
Feebas is pretty hard to find in Pokemon GO! It isn’t available in eggs at the moment. While it isn’t showing up in Raids all the time, it can pop up in them occasionally. Probably your best bet is to encounter one in the wild. It can be a rare spawn during the correct conditions. Also, it can show up more often during certain events.
How do I evolve a Feebas into Milotic in Pokemon Go?
Like Magikarp, Feebas is designed to be one of those “uphill climb” characters that becomes dramatically better when it can finally evolve into Milotic. This remains true in Pokemon GO. There are two things you need to get yourself settled.
First, you need to walk 20km (about 12 and a half miles) with Feebas as your Pokemon GO buddy to evolve it.
Next, you need 100 Feebas candies to evolve one into Milotic in Pokemon GO. You get one candy for each 5km (roughly three miles) you walk with it. Using Pinap berries when catching each Feebas will help.
Once you hit 20km with a character and have enough candies, you can evolve it.
How should I use Feebas and Milotic in Pokemon GO?
Well, Feebas isn’t great! You should just set it as your buddy and walk with it. Especially since the moveset is limited. It can have either Splash or Tackle as its quick move and Mirror Coat as its charged attack. Since Splash does nothing, make sure it knows Tackle and Mirror Coat.
As for Milotic, focusing on type bonuses for it can help a lot. That means getting Surf as a charged attack could be handy. However, the amount of damage you get out of it knowing Blizzard isn’t bad either, if you need an extra character with an ice-type attack. As for the quick move, you may want to go with Waterfall, as that’s what I have on mine, and it is a bit stronger than Dragon Tail.
Milotic isn’t one of the best Pokemon GO Pokemon out there. I consider it a “Hey! I finally got and evolved it!” type. However, it is pretty good against fire-type Pokemon if you need a counter for them.
