Feebas and Milotic in Pokémon GO

 Anorith and Armaldo Castform 

Pokémon GO Feebas evolves into a Pokémon GO Milotic, the Gen III equivalent of Gyarados. Milotic Max CP is 2967 and both are pure water type Pokemon. In order to evolve, Feebas needs to be walked for 20 KM as a buddy.

Milotic can be built into two viable movesets:

  • Waterfall / Surf is the best moveset as a typical water type
  • Dragon Tail / Blizzard is the best moveset as a dragon type killer (check moves section below)

Milotic in the Pokémon GO meta

Milotic is a great addition to the metagame, however, it is not as powerful as a Waterfall Gyarados. Milotic’s added bulk makes him a bit more favorable in matchups with high damage output, but overall, Gyarados is a better option in most  matchups.

Milotic is another addition to the high powered water type lineup in GO. With strong stats, good move pool variety and access to Waterfall, Milotic can be a good replacement for Vaporeon and Gyarados. However, as explained below, Milotic makes for a solid Dragon slayer.

Feebas evolution

Feebas is the first Pokémon that features a Buddy Distance requirement as an evolution requirement. In addition to needing 100 candy, Feebas also needs to be walked for 20 KMs before it can evolve into a Milotic.

Pokémon GO Milotic Moves

Best moveset: Waterfall / Surf

Milotic has been literally blessed with having access to Waterfall and Surf. Surf is a two bar high DPS move that works better than Hydro Pump in most scenarios, as it provides a consistent damage output, especially in combination with Waterfall. That is, if you decide to build Milotic as a Water type, not as a dragon type killer that it should be. Wait, what?

Check the moves below before we continue:

  • Waterfall water (fast)
  • Dragon Tail dragon (fast)
  • Surf water (charge, 2 bar)
  • Blizzard ice (charge, 1 bar)
  • Hyper Beam normal (charge, 1 bar)

Milotic has access to one of the most interesting movesets to ever appear on a Water typed Pokémon:

  • Dragon Tail dragon (fast)
  • Blizzard ice (charge, 1 bar)

Dragon Tail is arguably the best currently available Dragon move and Blizzard is simply a powerful Ice move, although we would prefer Ice Beam over it. In any case, with these two moves, Milotic can take on almost any Dragon type currently in game and win. It’s like a Lapras, but with more damage and less bulk.

In the anime

Feebas first appeared on the 349th episode of the Pokémon series (Advanced Generation: Episode 75) titled, “Whiscash and Ash”. Milotic first appeared on the 309th episode of the Pokémon series (Advanced Generation: Episode 35) titled, “Win, Lose or Drew!”.

Fun fact

Interesting facts about this particular Pokémon family: while Milotic was so generously given the title “Tender Pokémon”, Feebas was given direct-straight-to-the-point-no-BS title: the “Fish Pokémon”.
