    I never even managed to catch Feebas no matter how many times I kept looking for it *Slams head against desk* T_T

    I actually never found a Feebas. It was quite irritating.

    I must be the luckiest trainer here. I managed to catch a Feebas on my second fishing attempt! Took me all of a couple of minutes to do. Obviously have kept hold of it for breeding purposes.

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    My sister and I saw one, but at the time, we didn't know what it was/how rare it was, so we didn't catch it. Haven't seen one in 3rd gen since XD

    This week, I was thinking about how I used to play the Gen 3 games with my best friend from elementary school, and remembered that she had several Feebas on her Sapphire. She was able to fish up several of them without really trying. I already had my Milotic by that point, but I was a little mad that she found Feebas so easily while it took me forever lol.

    I might actually still have one of her Feebas stored on one of my games. She traded me several of her Sapphire & Colosseum Pokemon for safekeeping when she restarted those games and I think I still have some of them sitting untouched in PC boxes (& others were Pal Parked to Pearl IIRC).

    I just sat down and started fishing through the tiles, about 5 times each. Took me about two or three hours until I found one of the spots. I caught about 5 of them, so I would never have to return lol.

    I spent weeks fishing to find one in Emerald. It was the hardest task I ever did in the games and Feebas should have never been made so rare.
     
  10. I do remember finding one. It was boring and was a pain in the you know what, in both the gen 3 and gen 4 games. I like that Feebas is easier to get now.

    I hated hunting for Feebas in the GBA games. It added insult to injury that it was such a weak Pokemon that had only one purpose, which was evolving into Milotic.

    I found it a nice touch! But yeah, slightly tiring.. I think it was supposed to be a flavour thing along with the other stuff in the region, and it's quite good at that.. Like walking through a road and you see a landmark or weird thing, LOL.

    I first find it easily at random time, but that time I wasn't up in catching it so I just run away..then I realized I needed it lol I took me hours of finding it on the second etc.. times but I;m out of luck.

    I've never managed to find one. Partly because for a long time I didn't know anything about "special tiles", and partly because after five or ten minutes of fishing I get bored and want to do something else. :rolleyes:

    It took me several hours, and many Carvanhas, but I ended up finding mine under the bridge.

    Never caught one in Gen 3, nor in Gen 4 or 5. But then at the close of Gen 6 we had the night bridge, and the drought(pun unknown?) end and a Feebas was caught!!!

    I never saw a wild Feebas at all, so I have no experience in fishing for it.

    I remember I found it on my Ruby after days of trying. I remember reading that if you had the phrase "Natural Flowers" popular in Dewford you had a better chance of finding it. Obviously that's a lie and it doesn't change the overall odds, just the tiles you can find it on. I always used to restart my game if the phrase changed because I strongly believed the dross I read. At least I had 2 games.

    It did pay off though and I eventually found a Feebas with an Impish nature. Was super happy but was unaware of the conditions I needed to evolve him into a Milotic and ended up giving him a lot of tough boosting PokeBlocks because I wanted to use him in contests. Thank Arceus for the existence of Ditto otherwise I would have been stuck hunting for a second one.

    Ugh, I effing disliked fishing for Feebas in R/S/E since the odds of finding one were so rare. Why did Game Freak need to make such an ugly Pokemon so hard to find! :mad:

    I think I got lucky only once at finding the randomized fishing spot. But it was on a ROM so it doesn't quite count. I also got lucky a single time in Platinum and caught a Feebas. I'm just glad ORAS made it easier to find. I don't think my sanity would have been safe if I had to search the entire Route for one. Oh and the limit on how many Pokeblocks it could eat was also pretty aggravating. I bred the one I found with Ditto and had three that were so close to having Max Beauty but couldn't be raised anymore because it was "too full to eat."
