Pokemon Sword and Shield: How to Evolve Feebas into Milotic

Pokemon Sword and Shield features the return of many beloved favorites from the series. With these familiar faces come many new methods to encounter or evolve them in the Galar region. However, while Generation 8 innovates how to catch them all, it also features Pokemon from previous entries that have the same evolution method as before. In Pokemon Sword and Shield, one of these old veterans is Feebas, which evolves into quite the catch, Milotic.

Feebas is a water-type Pokemon first introduced in Generation 3's Hoenn region. After evolving, Milotic retains its water-typing, but gains massively increased stats and access to moves like Hydro Pump that its pre-evolution can only dream of. In Generation 3, 4, and the Hoenn remakes, Feebas evolved into Milotic by leveling up after its Beauty stat was raised high enough through Pokeblocks or poffins. From Generation 5 onward, contests were removed in new regions so trainers obtained Milotic by trading Feebas while holding a Prism Scale. In the Galar region, Feebas once again evolves after being traded between trainers so this guide will detail where to find Feebas and a Prism Scale.

Where to Catch Feebas

Feebas can be found on Route 2, which trainers will pass early in-game. However, the island where Feebas can be fished is located in the middle of the lake, and trainers need to upgrade their bike on Route 9 to cross water before they can reach it. Once there, find a fishing spot which is a black circle with bubbles inside and press A to start fishing. Note that Feebas has a 1-percent chance to be encountered and will range from Level 37-40. Trainers should be prepared to fish for a while and bring an appropriate-level Pokemon, such as their starter Pokemon, once they reel in Feebas.

Where to Find a Prism Scale

After catching Feebas, trainers won't have to go very far to find a Prism Scale. In the northern part of the Route 2 lake, above the island, there is an occasional sparkle coming from the water. Trainers simply have to bike over to the sparkle then click A to inspect and receive their Prism Scale. Alternatively, trainers can acquire a Prism Scale from South Lake Miloch in the Wild Area through the same method of inspecting sparkles in the water. Be aware that there are other items hidden in the Wild Area, so finding a Prism Scale there might take more time.

Once Feebas is holding a Prism Scale, trainers only need to trade it twice: once to evolve into Milotic and again to trade it back to their game.
