Feebas (Japanese: ヒンバス Hinbass) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Milotic when leveled up with its Beauty condition high enough or when traded holding a Prism Scale (Generation V onwards).

Biology

Feebas is a shabby, old-looking fish-like Pokémon with a light brown body covered in dark, irregular spots. It has large, deep-set eyes and big, pink lips. The tail and pectoral fins are dull blue and tattered in appearance. The dorsal fin is triangular with a hole in the middle. Due to its poor appearance, it is largely ignored by Trainers and researches alike. However, this hardy Pokémon is capable of eating anything and living anywhere. It is often found in weed-choked ponds, even if only a little water is available. While there are many of this Pokémon in existence, populations tend to cluster in small areas. Once found, its dull-wits make it easy to capture.

Major appearances

A Feebas appeared in Ya See We Want An Evolution! under the ownership of Haley. It was nicknamed the loveliest Feebas of all.

In Malice in Wonderland!, a Feebas, which later evolved into a Milotic, appeared under the ownership of Johanna; however, it turned out to be an illusion created by Mismagius.

Minor appearances

Feebas first appeared biting Jessie's hair in Whiscash and Ash.

The Magikarp salesman sold a Feebas to Jessie in Pearls are a Spoink's Best Friend but it was actually a Magikarp in disguise.

Another Feebas also appeared in Historical Mystery Tour!.

Trivia

  • Feebas has several similarities to Magikarp:
    • Though its level-up moves are exactly the same as those of Magikarp, Feebas can learn moves from TMs and HMs, hatch from an Egg with Egg moves, and learn new moves via Move Tutors, making it slightly more useful in battle.
    • Feebas shares its species name with Magikarp. They are both known as the Fish Pokémon.
    • Feebas and Magikarp have almost identical stats. However, Feebas has a higher Attack and Special Defense, while Magikarp has a higher Special Attack and Defense. Both Attack and Defense stats for Feebas and Magikarp are reversed.
    • They share the largest base stat total increase of all Pokémon when they evolve: 340 (from 200 to 540).
    • They both change appearances drastically after evolution, evolving into serpentine, dragon-like Pokémon.
  • Feebas is the only Pokémon that needs a modification of its Contest stats for it to evolve.
  • Feebas has the lowest base Special Attack of any Pokémon, tied with Shuckle and Bonsly.
  • The probability of finding a water tile with Feebas on Route 119 is approximately 1/73, with six possible fishing spots on 436 water tiles. In Mt. Coronet, it is 1/132, with four possible fishing spots on 528 water tiles. If the player reels in one Pokémon in every tile, the chance of passing every Feebas tile without reeling in a single Feebas is 1/64 on Route 114, while in Mt. Coronet it is 1/16.
  • Feebas has the lowest maximum Pokéathlon Performance of any Pokémon, only capable of reaching 11 stars.

Origin

As its name suggests, Feebas is probably based on a bass, possibly the largemouth bass. It also resembles the marine hatchetfish. Its ugly appearance makes it appear to be also based from the concept of ugliness, appearing to don a wash of ugly makeup. It also seems to be based on the classic fairy tale, The Ugly Duckling, where a small and feeble "ugly duckling", treated as an outcast by other animals, blossoms into a beautiful swan.

Name origin

Feebas is a combination of feeble (weak) and bass. Feebas is also phonetically similar to phoebus (Latin for shining one), possibly alluding to Milotic, its evolved form.

Hinbass is a combination of 貧 hin (poor) and bass. Hin may also come from the words hind (located at the rear) or hinder.
