Feebas (Japanese: ヒンバス Hinbasu) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

## Appearance

Feebas have brown skin and blue fins on its sides and on the top of its head too. There is also a fin on the back of this Pokémon. They resemble Magikarp.

## Etymology

Feebas probably got its name from the word "Feeble" probably because of its low stats, and "Bass"

## Special abilities

Feebas have the special ability Swift Swim. This increases Feebas' Speed when it is raining. Feebas are considered the ugliest and weakest Pokémon in the Hoenn and Sinnoh regions. Unlike Magikarp, Feebas can learn TMs and HMs. Feebas was meant to be the weakest Pokémon

## Evolution

Feebas evolves into Milotic when its Beauty stat reaches the maximum. In order to do that, feed it beauty poffins to increase it's beauty stat.It will still need to level up. In Pokémon Black and White, Feebas evolves by being traded holding the item Prism Scale.

• Feebas needs to have a high Beauty stat in order to evolve and in Black and White it is the only Pokémon that evolves by trading it with a Beauty Scale.
