Milotic (Japanese: ミロカロス Milokaross) is a Water-type Pokémon.

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

Biology

Milotic floating

Milotic is an aquatic, serpentine Pokémon with a primarily cream-colored body. 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. These eyebrows extend to almost half of Milotic's body length, and will be longer on the female than the male. On top of its relatively small head is a straight spike. Running down either side of its neck are three black dots, similar to gills. Its lower body is a patterning of blue and pink, diamond-shaped scales outlined with black. The tail consists of four large, blue fins with pink ovals in their centers. Each of the tail fins overlaps the next slightly, causing it to resemble a fan. While it has not been depicted, Milotic's scales are said to change color depending on the viewing angle.

Milotic is said to be the most beautiful of all Pokémon. 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. It lives at the bottom of large lakes.

Trophy information

Have you ever noticed how anyone who's seen a Milotic just can't seem to describe how beautiful it is? Words just can't do it justice. Even that says a lot about its appearance, doesn't it? If you really wanted to compliment someone, you could say "You're looking Milotic this fine day!"

Trivia

  • Every Milotic that has appeared in the anime was owned by a Pokémon Coordinator or Frontier Brain.
  • In the official Prima Strategy Guide for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Milotic's Ability was mistakenly listed as Torrent.
  • 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 and share the same HP, Defense, and Speed stats.
    • Milotic may also be a Contest version of Gyarados since it was introduced in the third generation with Pokémon Contests. This is fortified by Milotic's emphasis being on its beauty, while Gyarados' emphasis is on its power.
  • Milotic is tied with Gyarados for the greatest increase in base stat total after evolving, at 340 points.
  • In 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.
  • Milotic, Espeon, and Umbreon are the only Pokémon with multiple ways of evolving from its pre-evolved form in the core series.
    • Unlike Eevee in Pokémon XD, which cannot evolve into Espeon or Umbreon normally due to lack of an in-game clock, a Feebas with maximum Beauty (via transfer from Generation IV) can still evolve by level-up in Generation V. This is because Beauty and the other Contest conditions still exists in the data structure of each Pokémon.

Origin

Milotic may be loosely based on sirens or the Loch Ness Monster, but mostly has characteristics of a sea serpent or sea dragon. Its pale, elongated body and extended, red dorsal fins are reminiscent of an oarfish.

Name origin

Milotic may be a combination of aquatic, melodic, or lotic and Milo (as in the sculpture Venus de Milo, which is known for being an example of beauty (and, like Milotic, possesses no arms). It may also involve mitotic (the healing process of a body part through mitosis), as Milotic has a wide range of healing and defensive moves.

Milokaross may be a combination of Milo (Venus de Milos) and καλλονή kalloni (Greek for beauty) or Χάρις charis (Greek for beauty, elegance, charm, or grace). See also Charites.
