I've been searching around route 119, square by square, but I'm sure like many of you, I've yet to find feebas. For those of you who were lucky enough to find it, would you mind telling how long it took you to finally get him, if you remember?

Question: Should I use the old rod or super rod, because if you can catch him on the old rod, than would that be a better choice since the super rod has a better chance to catch other pokemon?

It didnt take me long at all. I caught a few one after the other.
All you do is go to...[insert town that Ive forgotten here] XDD
and you talk to the guy there and change the word. Once he says he likes the word you surf to I think 119 and just wait.

Its the second gym area and the guy right outside of that house next to the Poke'mart. Think of a cool word and your good.

You don't have to talk to the guy. You can just go fishing at Route 119

It didnt take me terribly long but remember if you seem stuck just go chance the phrase in dewford town. i have read that this changes where the random 6 squares containing feebas is. Also fish in the square a few times. when you do hit the square they are pretty common but you dont want to take a chance that you miss your chance because of impatience. another thing i did was catch a bunch! that way you can pick out one with the nature that likes dry pokeblocks making it easier to evole it to milotic. and you fishing rod question, it goes both ways i heard. you can catch feebas with any rod i believe. I chose to use the lowest one just because other pokemon you catch with the old rod arent to difficult to just shove out of the way and get back on the hunt for feebas. Thats all i got to offer

I didn't have to look for it. My friend gave me a Feebas egg.
But I was just surfing around 119 and I encountered one in like...Ten minutes.

10 Minutes.

Look online, and follow the guides to the letter. If you do that, you'll have a much better chance, and you'll find Feebas much faster.

Stupid Feebas...

I remember trying to catch it and my internet wasn't working, so I couldn't ask online for help.

I chucked the Gameboy away, frustrated. Ironically, that Feebas seemed as slippery as a Feebas. Later when I found out where I was supposed to catch it from...

I didn't know whho was more stupid: Feebas, or me.

Oh, and my Gameboy didn't break, though.

It took me forever to catch it but what really made me mad was when i raised it to level 60 and it still haven't evolved becuase i didn't know it had to have high beauty to evlove

Level 60 Feebas :eek:? Ouch. How did you manage to get it that high? It's just a Magikarp with lower Defence and higer Sp.Defence.

My friends helped me hunt but they were impatient so I never did get that Feebas.

But my friend has got lots of Feebases, including a Milotic with great IVs, and he's gonna clone it and trade one to me in DP! Yay!

That long? Wow.

One day, I was like, "Ok, I want a Milotic. That evolves from Feebas, right?" And then I searched it up on the internet. After that it took me maybe an hour to actually find one, and then they just kept comin and comin. :cool:

Oh ok. What did the guy say. If he said it was good and liked it he should start saying it I think. Then go to that route and fish. Good luck.

Now thats lucky. I would have loved to find it on the first try. So it wouldnt have taken my forever to find it.

Yeah it was by accident and as soon as I found it I thought it was like a fake version of a magickarp but than i breeded it to teach it mirror coat and than i evovled it at level 6 and it was a cool looking so I was a guess they are similar.

I'm not sure... I think 2 weeks. It was pretty quick for me, at least I didn't have to go all the way down to the big pool on the bottom. I found feebas near the secret base right beside the water.

ZOMG! You haven't found feebas!?

Pity. Have you kept on searching?

I mean, there's only 400 water squares in the route..

It's a matter of patience. But it's annoying, the Emerald fishing system. Anyone knows if DP has the same system? I prefer the FRLG one, where the fishing part is done in a matter of seconds without you having to do anything!

arg! my friend had a milotic, but he decided to start over and didn't give his milotic to anyone. what a waste.

Sigh, I really want to catch it, but many of you arn't answering the second question. Does the kind of rod you use matter?

slashy
04-16-2007, 06:16 PM
ok, let me tell u this first, and how blissfuly unaware of the BIZZAR luck i had in one game (in emerald) ok, first, i found a shiny mignemite, and i wasent really looking for it, i just ran out of repels, about a week later, i got pokerus, thou i basicly wasted most of it, o well, i got some use, and, later on i found a feebas and geuss what? i didnt even know what a feebas really was except that a fisher man had it and i wanted it. i got it like in my first 3 or 4 fishing trys, and now that i look on serribi net, it tells me its really hard to find, yea me! and i also found that blue pokemon latios i think (not seaching) and little old me didnt know all of this till i restarted the game later (not lucky):surp:

and old rod, use it, it takes less pulls so it = faster, and it says to an serribi

edit-it took me an hour today 2 find him.

04-16-2007, 06:32 PM
1 month, i decided to give up... my friend then rang me and said he caught 7 feebas and he said, i only had to fish in 4 tiles, i'm like What the..!! Then he traded me 3 and i evolved them all, 1 to lvl100 which was pretty much unstopable XD

Well I went and tried a thorough search of the water on that route, then the ledge you use to surf up or down that river, I used one of my rods and viola, theres a Feebas. I caught two of them, then evolved one of them, so now I'm happy.

I won't be surprised if they're easier to find. Why? We can only trade from R/S/E --> D/P.

Well, I've decided to renew my Feebas hunt. Hey, it will at least make my egg hatching process less boring. :tongue:
