Rare Pokemon glitter the Galar region, and they don’t come any rarer than Feebas. The innocent-looking fish Pokemon evolves into the powerful Milotic, but where can you find the both of them?

Feebas draws parallels with Magikarp. The Kanto Pokemon eventually evolves into the dual water and flying-type Gyarados to become one of the more powerful species in the region. The same is true for Feebas who goes from, let’s just say it as it is, a weak fish to the much more threatening Milotic.

There are plenty of other rare Pokemon to be found, including the likes of Morpeko, Deino, and Larvitar — the latter two are version exclusive Pokemon to each of Sword and Shield respectively — but Feebas is actually harder to find than all of them!

Spawn location and rarity

Feebas can only be found in one location in Pokemon Sword and Shield, and when you get there you’ll still only have a 1% chance of encountering it. The Gen 3 fan favorite can only be found while fishing in Route 2, specifically in the Lake left of the Professor’s House. Not even the rare Pokemon-filled Lake of Outrage can help you!

Given its spawn rate of 1%, you’ll need to throw your fishing line out an average of 100 times just to encounter it once. When you do find one, it will be between the level of 37 and 40.

Evolving into Milotic

While some trainers will have a genuine fondness of Feebas, most will be looking forward to its evolved form, Milotic. Unlike Magikarp, you can’t just get Feebas to a certain level to get that all important evolution.

The traditional method of evolving Feebas was to level it up when its Beauty value was at its maximum but contests were removed from Gen 5 onwards. Instead, you’ll need to find the Prism Scale and attach it to Feebas.

It can be found in the lake south-west of the Professor’s house, just on the shoreline. You’ll need to enter the water to get it. Once found, and attached, just trade Feebas to make it evolve. You’ll need to trade it again to get Milotic yourself, though!

Contrary to other spawn details, you can actually find Milotic in the wild as well. The datamined spawn locations didn’t have it listed but there is proof it can be found. Head over to South Lake Miloch and when the weather turns to heavy fog you might just be lucky enough to have one spawn by the bridge.


Complete First-Edition PSA10 Pokemon card set could sell for over $700K

An incredible, complete set of 1999 first-edition Pokemon cards is available for auction – and it’s looking like it could sell for more than half a million dollars when it’s all said and done.

The complete set is made up entirely of PSA 10s, the best possible grade one can give to a card, meaning these are in tip-top condition.

According to Goldin Auctions, who is hosting the bid, the collection includes four extremely sought-after Charizard cards. For many, Charizard is considered the holy grail of Pokemon cards.

So far, five people have put in the funds necessary to bid on the collection in two weeks. If you want to join in, you’re going to need some deep pockets – the minimum bid starts at $125,000.

The fact that there are four Charizards alone in the collection is nothing to scoff at, and could very well be the cherry on top of the pristine PSA 10 collection.

Just back in October of 2020, rapper Logic purchased the 1st Edition card for just over $226,000. But that was then, and this is now.

Goldin Auctions states they “just sold an SGC Gold Label Pristine 10 ‘1 of 1’ example of the Charizard for nearly $400,000 in their December Holiday Auction.”

While the card alone can sell for a ridiculous amount, booster box prices have also seen their value rise.

As the TGC community has continued to grow, plenty of YouTubers and Twitch stars have started spending a lot of money on booster boxes from the 90s. The end result is that costs have skyrocketed.

Earlier in December, a booster box from Heritage Auctions sold for a whopping $408,000.

Given the insanity of the current lot and just how many perfect condition cards are included, we could be seeing a brand new Pokemon record once the bidding wraps up. The only question is: Will it ever reach the million-dollar mark? We’ll have to see what 2021 has in store.
