Milotic (ミロカロス) is the 141st Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Water type, and is known as the Tender Pokémon.

Milotic can possess one of two Abilities; Marvel Scale, which increases its Defense by 50% when it gets afflicted with any one of the five Status Conditions, or Competitive, which raises its Special Attack stat by two stages when one of its stats are lowered. Its Hidden Ability is Cute Charm, which has a 30% chance of causing an opponent of the opposite gender to become infatuated with this Pokémon should it use an attack that requires physical contact.

When Milotic debuted in Generation III, it could evolve from Feebas after obtaining a High Beauty level by being fed Blue Poké Blocks, and then Leveling up. That changed in Generation V; en lieu of Pokémon Contests a Feebas can evolve to Milotic by being traded to another game while it is holding a Prism Scale.

Milotic is in the Egg Groups Water 1 and Dragon, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Milotic approximately 600,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Game Information

Original Games

In most of its game appearances, the only way to obtain Milotic is to evolve a Feebas. Generations 3 and 4 require a High Beauty rating then Leveling Up, whereas the fifth generation requires trading while holding a Prism Scale.

Milotic can be found at Route 1 in Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 by fishing with a Super Rod at a Shaking Spot.

Spin-off Games

Milotic appears at Endless Level 71, Forever Level 21 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Milotic can only be obtained by evolving Feebas in the first Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Milotic appears at End Lake B1-B24. Milotic is exclusive to Stormy Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, but can only be obtained by evolving Feebas. In each of the Mystery Dungeon games, a Feebas can evolve into a Milotic by holding a Beautiful Scarf.

Milotic has yet to appear in the Pokémon Ranger series as of writing.

Milotic can be found at World Axle Lake B2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

Trading Card Game

Milotic appears in nine sets. It is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Supreme Victors set. Its other seven appearances are as Rare Cards: EX Hidden Legends, EX Emerald (2; 1 EX Card), EX Dragon Frontiers (Delta Species Card), Great Encounters, Supreme Victors (2; 1 Champion Card & 1 Secret Holofoil Card) and Dragons Exalted sets.

Anime/Manga Information

Anime

A co-ordinator named Robert battled and defeated Drew with a Milotic in the episodes Win, Lose or Drew! and Rhapsody In Drew. Juan and Lucy also used a Milotic in two separate battles against Ash, and Ash's Pikachu won each time.

Wallace also appeared with a Milotic during the Wallace Cup.

Movies

Palmer appeared with a Milotic in the film Arceus and the Jewel of Life, and Wild Milotic appeared in the film Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

Manga

During Chapter 266, Ruby would be reunited with his Feebas after she attacked Archie and Maxie, and would subsequently evolve into Milotic at the end of the chapter, helping to defeat both Archie and Maxie in Chapter 267.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Milotic finds itself in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With good overall defensive stats including a standout base 125 Special Defense to complement its nice base 95 HP, Milotic can act as a solid defensive stalwart. Its Water-typing lends itself very well to checking the many Fire-types in the tier. With access to reliable recovery in Recover, Milotic can stay healthy very well. Haze is a great move that allows for Milotic to check bulky Calm Mind users like Florges and Reuniclus as well as set-up sweepers like Dragon Dance Gyarados, making Milotic one of the best Pokémon that can stop set-up sweepers. Despite having the ability Marvel Scale which benefits Milotic when statused, it would prefer to not be statused as it can be heavily crippled by Toxic. Milotic's average base 79 Defense can give it problems even when fully invested, as strong neutral attacks could deal some heavy damage. It faces problems against Pokémon with Substitute or Taunt that could use it as set-up bait. While it handles certain Fire-types like Darmanitan and Entei well, it does not match up as well against Infernape and Rotom-H due to both having super effective coverage to hit Milotic hard. Milotic also does not provide as much utility as a bulky Water-type from numerous other Pokémon in the tier, such as Swampert, Empoleon, and Tentacruel, but has its own unique advantages to stand out such as access to Haze.
