    That elusive fish, how did you finally get one? Do you remember what the phrase was in Dewford that let you get it?

    I didn't get one until Emerald, and it was by chance on the first tile I fished on.

    Any phrase will you give you Feebas.

    I managed to fish it in all my R/S/E games, thats b/c I searched in every tile.
    I hunt for Feebas, thats my fave thing to do in the game. I even managed to fish Feebas in D/P/Plat in a larger area.

    Anyway, if you switch game data between 2 R/S/E games, one will copy the tile where the Feebas in from the other game. I found that recently.

    I found a Feebas in Ruby after fishing for a looong time. I think I spent a few weeks trying to find it, so I was very happy when I did.

    I've never fished for Feebas since then - if I want another Feebas, I just breed.

    And I don't remember what my phrase in Dewford Town was.

    I really needed to train up my sceptile and I thought to myself "I know! I'll go look for feebas and kill a zillion carvanha and level up that way!"
    tile #3 had feebas

    PrismaticPrincessAnna I'll do my Lilliest

    My friend traded me one, that's it XD

    Then I bothered to catch one and took me 10 mins. It was under the bridge, nya~

    Estellise freeze!

    I had a friend catch mine. It only took him an hour. ._.
    But it's worth it!!

    I don't bother most of the time, but the last time I played Emerald I wanted a Milotic for my team, so I decided to get one. I just started to fish in every tile a couple of times and it didn't took long to find it. An hour, maybe even less IIRC.

    Nyula i like razors

    I remember how popular I was with my friends when I caught one. It's a good thing it was on Emerald, where Ditto's can be found for easier breeding.

    I don't think that the Dewford phrase has any effect. I've never heard that one. The tiles change everyday. I think.

    I didn't bother to search every water tile in Route 119 for Feebas. I actually found one while I was randomly fishing in the area; I think I was looking for a Carvanha at the time. I caught a couple Feebas while I was there just in case I'd need some extras, and it's good that I did since I ended up ruining one of the Feebas later on.

    Well, it took me 8 years, on and off, I found mine on 21 July 2012! I took a photo of the spot so I could find it again..
  14. KiaAsakura

    KiaAsakura Lie to me.

    I am one of the few very lucky people who fished for it on the first tile I tried, without knowing anything about the game mechanics and how it's so elusive. I didn't know how rare it was until I got a guide book on it.
  15. Durbe

    Durbe I'm tired

    I was young and silly. I kept changing the Dewford phrase without realising that it would affect the Feebas.
    So yep. Until today, I haven't found it... Oh, silly me.

    Besides a 4 hours straight gaming marathon, my phrase was Great Latios in celebration of his capture.
    The tiles change randomly every time you change the phrase so I don't see how collecting prases will help.

    I don't remember what phrase was in Dewford Town at the time, but I remember fishing on that stupid river for what seemed like hours before I finally found one.
    I remember just casting my fishing pole for the upteenth time, then that ugly little fish appeared on my screen and I nearly screamed in excitement. XD
    I immediately began force-feeding that thing PokéBlocks to get it to evolve. One of the happiest days in my life. <3

    dirkac I smash your Boxes.

    It took me a few days on Emerald. I managed to find one, AND evolve it, and guess what happens? My cousin saves over the game, not even catching the shiny he encountered. :'(

    The first one I ever found was in Sapphire. I didnt even know how rare they were, as I found it on the second fishing encounter.

    Then after realizing how rare they were, it took me about 2 days to find one on Emerald.
