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

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

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 pattern 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. Milotic's scales are said to change color depending on the viewing angle, which has so far only been depicted in Pokémon Battle Revolution.

Milotic is said to be the most beautiful of all Pokémon. In fact, it is said to have inspired many artists in their works. 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

NA: 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!"

PAL: Have you ever noticed how anyone who's seen a Milotic just can't seem to describe how beautiful it is? Maybe words can't do it justice. We'll have to add "Milotic" to the dictionary as a brand-new word. But then...how would you define it? Maybe you'd need an illustrated dictionary...

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Milotic appears as a Spirit.

This Illumina Pokémon looked stunning as it swam gracefully through the clear water. I suspect some connection with Meganium stirred Milotic from its sleep.

Trivia

  • 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, sharing the same HP, Defense, and Speed stats with Attack, Special Attack and Special Defense stats sharing the same values but in a different arrangement.
    • Milotic may also be a version of Gyarados oriented to Pokémon Contests, since it was introduced in the third generation where Pokémon Contests debuted. This is fortified by Milotic's emphasis being on its beauty, while Gyarados' emphasis is on its power. In addition, Milotic is strongly associated with Pokémon Contests in the anime; all known male Top Coordinators have a Milotic as their signature Pokémon.
  • Milotic is tied with Gyarados for the greatest increase in base stat total after evolving, at 340 points.
  • In Pokémon 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.
  • In the core series games, Milotic is the only Pokémon with multiple ways of evolving from its pre-evolution in the same game that does not have different forms for each method.

Origin

Milotic seems to be based on a sea serpent and a mermaid due to its hair-like fins, pale upper body, and scaly lower body. It is also similar to an oarfish, which have very long bodies and red fins. Its gills are similar to those of lampreys and hagfishes. Its tail fin resembles a hand fan, and its colorful scales resemble stained glass. Its feminine appearance and history of being depicted in art indicate that it may be inspired by Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty. Its drastic transformation after evolving from Feebas may be inspired by the classic fairy tale The Ugly Duckling, where a small and feeble duckling is treated as an outcast by other animals until it eventually grows up to be a beautiful swan.

Name origin

Milotic may be a combination of Venus de Milo (a sculpture known for its beauty) and aquatic, melodic, milk, exotic, or lotic (a river ecosystem).

Milokaross may be a combination of Venus de Milo and kalloni (Greek for beauty) or Charis (Greek goddesses of grace and beauty).
