Milotic is a Water type Pokemon introduced in Generation III. It evolves from Feebas when leveled up with its Beauty condition high enough, or, from Generation V onward, when traded holding a Prism Scale. Take a look below for 25 fun and interesting facts about Milotic.
1. Milotic is an aquatic, serpentine Pokemon with a primarily cream colored body.
2. It has red eyes with long, pinkish antennae above them. Additionally, there are long, hair-like fins above its eyes, which begin thin and thicken towards the tips.
3. These eyebrows extend to almost half of Milotic’s body length, and will be longer on the female than the male.
4. On top of its relatively small head is a straight spike.
5. Running down either side of its neck are three black dots, similar to gills.
6. Its lower body is a patterning of blue and pink, diamond-shaped scales outlined with black.
7. The tail consists of four large, blue fins with pink ovals in their centers.
8. Each of the tail fins overlaps the next slightly, causing it to resemble a fan.
9. Milotic’s scales are said to change color depending on the viewing angle, which has so far only been depicted in Pokémon Battle Revolution.
10. Milotic is said to be the most beautiful of all Pokémon.
11. When there are fights going on, it has the power to calm angry feelings and end arguments by releasing a wave of energy. In addition, it can move by floating in the air as shown in the anime.
12. It lives at the bottom of large lakes.
13. In the official Prima Strategy Guide for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Milotic’s Ability was mistakenly listed as Torrent.
14. Milotic seems to be a counterpart of Gyarados. Both are the serpentine evolved forms of weak fish Pokémon, and both appear in times of conflict, Milotic to calm, Gyarados to destroy. Both have base stat totals of 540, sharing the same HP, Defense, and Speed stats with Attack, Special Attack and Special Defense stats sharing the same values but in a different arrangement.
15. Milotic may also be a version of Gyarados oriented to Pokémon Contests, since it was introduced in the third generation, the one in which Pokémon Contests debuted. This is fortified by Milotic’s emphasis being on its beauty, while Gyarados’ emphasis is on its power. In addition, Milotic is strongly associated with Pokémon Contests in the anime; all known male Top Coordinators have a Milotic as their signature Pokémon.
16. Milotic is tied with Gyarados for the greatest increase in base stat total after evolving, at 340 points.
17. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, it is possible to evolve Feebas into Milotic without trading, even though no Poffin can be obtained and used in the game. This is done by visiting the Haircut brothers in Goldenrod City or by talking to Daisy in order to groom Feebas, which not only helps to raise its friendship, but also raises its Beauty. This is subtly stated by the brothers and Daisy in the games, but cannot be checked unless the Feebas is traded to Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum. However, this cannot raise Feebas’s Beauty if its Sheen is too high.
18. In the core series games, Milotic is the only Pokémon with multiple ways of evolving from its pre-evolution in the same game that does not have different forms for each method.
19. Milotic mostly has characteristics of a sea serpent or sea dragon, but may also be loosely based on sirens or mermaids. Its pale, elongated body and extended, red dorsal fins are reminiscent of an oarfish.
20. Milotic may be a combination of Venus de Milo (a sculpture known for being an example of beauty) and aquatic, melodic, exotic, or lotic.
21. Milotic debuted in Win, Lose or Drew!, under the ownership of Robert. Robert used Milotic again for the Hoenn Grand Festival, where the Tender Pokémon helped him to fulfill his goal of becoming a Top Coordinator.
22. A Milotic debuted in The Great Eight Fate!, under the ownership of Juan. It was used against Ash for their Gym battle in the following episode, being his strongest and last Pokémon. Milotic was able to defeat Swellow with a combination of Hydro Pump and Twister before losing to Pikachu‘s Thunder.
23. A Milotic appeared in Queen of the Serpentine, under the ownership of Pike Queen Lucy. It was used during her battle against Ash at the Battle Pike. Milotic defeated Donphan before losing to Pikachu when he used Volt Tackle in one of its Twisters. It reappeared in a flashback in A Pyramiding Rage!.
24. An illusory Milotic appeared in Malice in Wonderland!. A wild Mismagius created an illusion in which a Feebas owned by Johanna evolved into Milotic while battling Dawn’s Piplup during the world’s greatest Coordinator playoff.
25. A Milotic appeared in Our Cup Runneth Over!, under the ownership of Wallace. It reappeared in Staging a Heroes’ Welcome!, during the opening of the Wallace Cup; in Strategy with a Smile!, when Dawn was being awarded the Aqua Ribbon; and in a fantasy in Goodbye, Junior Cup – Hello Adventure!.
