If you are wondering how to evolve Feebas in Pokemon Sword and Shield we've got all the information you will need. The returning water-type Pokemon can transform into a Milotic but you'll need the Pokemon Sword and Shield Prism Scale to do it. 

Pokemon Sword and Shield Feebas might not look like much, but the Milotic special evolution is well worth pursuing – a powerful addition to any party, particularly if you're looking to bolster the water-side to your strategy. So keep reading for information on where to catch Feebas in Pokemon Sword and Shield, how to evolve it into a Milotic, and where you can get your hands on the all-important Prism Scale.

For being such a nondescript Pokemon, Feebas is quite hard to find. You can pick up this fishy friend on Route 2 in the water west of the Professor’s House, but the spawn chance is absolutely dreadful and you need the Rotom Bike upgrade that lets you cross water,  so expect to spend some time there once you’re far enough into the game. If you have a friend who can breed one and help you out, consider asking them, or look online for trades.

Once you’ve found Feebas, you can pick up the Prism Scale on the same body of water you were fishing from in between the two islands. It’s also been known to appear in the South Lake Miloch section of the Wild Area, but this is a random spawn over a definitive one.

Now you’re going to need a trusted friend. To evolve Feebas into Milotic you need to trade Feebas whilst it is holding a Prism Scale. There’s no level requirement, so find a friend and ensure you’ve got a Pokemon to swap it back for. Set up a Link Trade by entering the same code and swap the Feebas back and forth to acquire your fancy new Milotic.
