20K Feebas Buddy?
Has anyone tried waking a feebas 20k to evolve?
I vaguely remember trying to do it with one of the 1st gen. pokemons and finding out the feature wasn't functional.
I'm up to 9.9k on a feebas now, but I caught a 100% larvitar and I want candy for it.
Edit: Sounds like the requirement is 100 candy plus 20k as walking buddy. Thanks.
It's "only" 5km for each candy, but in order to evolve a Feebas you need to have 100 candies as well as have that particular Feebas as buddy for 20km, which isn't too far really. I can do that in a couple of days.
I have had a Feebas as a buddy for more than 20km and I have the candy, so I will evolve it during the event in a few days so as to get some extra XP.
But you lose out on potential candies if you switch buddies.
Like you could switch buddies every 4km and still get the full 20km on the Feebas without getting any Feebas candies.
Considering the effort you have to put into Milotic to evolve it, I don't think it's worth it to use it in battle. It's about on par with Vaporeon, but Vaporeon got outclassed by Gyarados who in turn got outclassed by Kyogre, so Vaporeon's only advantage is that it's easy to evolve, so I'd consider it dex filler as it'd almost never get used realistically. Not unusable but not the best water type either.
I walked my Feebas, and hatched a mess of 10k's, where I hatched enough Feebas to not only evolve but power it up. My Milotic is level 30, 2521cp, 149 hit points, with waterfall and surf as its moves. I will probably continue to power him up, as he continues to be my buddy, and see how he would do as a part of my Ninetales attack team.
Milotic is only for collection/putting in gyms unfortunately. At least it's better than vaporeon in terms on gym defense.
Speaking of this aside to evolve Feebas you need 100 candies and have to walk a total of 20 km with it. In other words it's good for 2 power ups if your feebas is from a 10km egg which is very likely because wild caught feebas are 99.9% Garbage.
