Every Pokemon is interesting and worth talking about. I don’t play a ton of Pokemon, but I do enjoy the universe and I love learning more about the creatures in it. So, Here’s Another Pokemon! It’s Feebas!


Feebas Details

Type: Water

Average Height: 2' 00"

Average Weight: 16.3 lbs

First Added In Generation III

Not all Pokemon are cute and cuddly. Some are strange-looking or appear to be from another world. And then you have creatures like Feebas. This poor fish is so damn ugly that trainers and researchers ignore it. Even predators don’t go after this ugly fish. And if you do decide to catch one, it’s incredibly stupid and probably won’t be very useful.

So poor Feebas is dumb, dull and ugly looking. But this has its advantages. Because everyone ignores this boring fish, it doesn’t have to worry about being eaten or caught. It can freely swim wherever it wants, and it does! According to Bulbapedia, this Pokemon can be found everywhere. They are so hardy and tough that they can even live in tiny ponds with almost no water. They can also eat anything. So they can go anywhere, eat anything and don’t have to worry about being attacked or eaten. It sounds like a good deal to me!

Now, with everyone around the world practicing social distancing and self-isolation, Feebas is in an even better place. Not only are they used to living alone, but they can go wherever they want and not worry about some idiot trying to catch them and give them COVID-19.

Of course, Feebas gets to have the last laugh as people call it ugly and ignore it. It turns out that eventually, after meeting certain criteria, Feebas can evolve into a gorgeous and incredible looking Pokemon called Milotic. See, this story of a shitty fish had a happy ending after all!

This is like an animated kids film. Feebas, a super ugly fish finds a surprising friend, a small Skitty. A story that will touch the hearts of all. Coming next year, it’s the next great animated classic, Ugly And The Kitty.

Random Facts

  • Feebas is so dumb that if you find one it is incredibly easy to catch it. You could probably put a small box out near the edge of the lake and it would hop in and not move.
  • As you might expect, according to Pokedex entries, there are a few folks out there who actually love this ugly fish. They only collect Feebas.
  • Less a fact, but I had nowhere else to put this. So, I don’t think this Pokemon is that ugly. It is just a dull-looking fish. I’ve seen far worse looking Pokemon than a brown fish with blue fins. People in the Pokemon universe need to stop bullying Feebas.

Best Comment From Last Week

This cub belongs in self-imposed ice-olation.


This comment made me sigh so loud that my cat looked at me weird. So thanks for that.

Can be found anywhere?

Easy to catch?

My old Pokemon Sapphire game begs to differ.
