Milotic (Japanese: ミロカロス Milokaross) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Feebas by level-up when Feebas's Beauty condition is high.

Biology

Physiology

Milotic's appearance is similar to that of a sea serpent. It is likely based on an [Oarfish http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oarfish]. The top of its head is long, with a point at the end, and long hair-like fins drape from the sides of the head. Its lower tail is covered with blue and pink scales, and four large scales overlap at the tip of the tail to look like a fan. Milotic is described in the Pokédex as breathtakingly beautiful.

Gender differences

The female's eyebrow fins are longer than the male's. Also, in Pokémon Platinum the female's antennae are colored blue when it is shiny.

Special abilities

Milotic have the ability to calm their enemies by removing their negative feelings, this suggests that they possess empathetic abilities similar to some species of Template:Type2 Pokémon.

Behavior

Milotic is a peaceful Pokémon that typically tries to avoid battles. It appears to dislike conflict, and will even appear before arguing humans in an attempt to calm their minds. It is a historically significant Pokémon, and has been depicted in many works of art.

Habitat

Milotic are divinely rare. They live at the bottom of large lakes.

Trivia

  • In the anime, with the exception of Pike Queen Lucy, all of the Milotic that appeared were under the ownership of a Pokémon Coordinator or at least a part-time Coordinator.
    • A Milotic is used by Misty in her rematch in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions, this shows, to-date, all water-type Gym Leader's having owned a Milotic, except for Crasher Wake.
  • In the official Prima Strategy Guide for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Milotic was erroneously stated to have the Torrent ability.
  • In many ways, Milotic is the Hoenn counterpart of Kanto's Gyarados. Both are the evolved forms of incredibly weak fish Pokémon, and both appear in times of conflict, Milotic to becalm, Gyarados to destroy. Both have base stat totals of 540, the only difference being the distribution of their stats: Milotic is more defensively based while Gyarados is more offensively based.
    • It is also possible it is meant to be a contest version of Gyarados - because Gyarados was introduced in the first Generation, and Milotic was introduced in the first Generation with Pokémon contests. This is fortified by Milotic's emphasis being on its beauty, while Gyarados' emphasis is on its power.
  • Milotic is the only Pokémon so far to have a particular gender difference visible only in its Template:Shiny2 form in Platinum: female shiny Milotic have blue eyebrows while males have red ones. This is apparently a coloring error, as the Diamond and Pearl and HeartGold and SoulSilver sprites have the normal red. Considering that the HeartGold and SoulSilver sprites of all other Generation III Pokémon remain unchanged from Platinum, this is highly likely to be the case.

Origin

Milotic may be based loosely on sirens, mythical creatures who can hypnotize with their voice to make men attracted to them. An argument can also be made for the possibility it is loosely based on the Loch Ness Monster. Its similarity to Dragonair suggests as basis in sea serpents or sea dragons as well. It has anatomical similarities with the oarfish, with a pale, elongated body and extended, red dorsal fins

Name origin

Milotic's name may be a combination of aquatic or melodic and Milo, as in the sculpture Venus de Milo, which is known for being an example of beauty, and like Milotic, possesses no arms. Its Japanese name may be a combination of the aforementioned Milo and the Greek καλλονή kalloni, meaning beauty or Χάρις charis, beauty, elegance, charm, or grace. See also Charites.

Milotic also have a wide range of healing and defensive moves, so its name may also be a variation on mitotic, descriptive of the healing process of a body part through mitosis.

In other languages

  • German: Milotic
  • French: Milobellus - From Venus de Milo and bella (Italian for "pretty").
  • Korean: 밀로틱 Milotic
