Can anyone recommend a guide to catching Feebas? I know the Dewford phrases
have an effect, and that it can vary, but is there an accurate, detailed
explanation anywhere? I've been Googlin' for an age and can only find
amaturish guesses and people passing off what they've heard as fact.

Anyway, if I can't find one, I'm not wasting my time looking in each
seperate tile when I could be training each Eeveelution to :L100 and
teaching them Strength so that they can move the truck that hides Mew.

Consider yourself thanked.

....but, in summary, it's trial and error with no scientific method, right?

For the most part, yes, but there is the slight method of going right to
left, for example. And it also helps to know that in the squares that
Feebas *does* show up in, he does it frequently, so if you have a few
battles and don't catch one, you can safely move on. Just don't change
the phrase in Dewford Town, and you can come back to the area and do
some more later.

Got one!

My method: Check every tile once and once only. I tried about forty tiles
and got one. A nice easy tile to remember, too, right next to a rock.

Now. Time to evolve. After that, I'll my Dex complete except starters and
trade evolutions.

Worry not, I planned ahead.

Fourth one I caught was a female. Seventh one I caught was a big dry 'blok
lover, and is now a Milotic.

More than I'll ever need, but eh. I can use some to trade.

Wow, that was fast. I just stored mine and still haven't evolved it yet.
I plan to use it in the beauty contest, but I'm waiting for the really
good berries for pokeblocks. I think I'm too anal.

Follow the guide you sent me. Use the B-grade berries to blend in Lilycove,
and if it has a suitable nature, it'll only take about eight 'bloks.
Personally, I saved before using them in case they weren't good enough, but
it wasn't even necessary.

I have the really good berry mentioned, but it's too much effort to plant
and wait for now, when I had several of the B-grade ones to spare.

Ah, is *that* the FAQ that has the A/B/C grade berries? I was looking
for that!

I've been planting Pamtre berries, but they take way too long. I have a
lot of them now, but it's still a lot of effort. I'll probably just do
what you say. How far down the "Beauty" scale did those pokeblocks get
you when it evolved?

Only the ones that make blue or indigo 'bloks, but yes.

Quite.

I maxed it out, and I'm pretty sure that you HAVE to do so. When it LOOKED
maxed out, I tried one more 'blok, and it turned out that it still had a bit
to go. I didn't try more afterwards, though, so it must have hit the max.

The effort-to-result ratio factors in here. Why bother wasting rare, good
berries when you can use plentiful, more common ones? I'd certainly suggest
the B-grade instead of the C, though, but a few Cs won't be a problem for
one that likes dry 'bloks.

I remember hearing somewhere that a Pokemon will only eat so many blocks
before rejecting them completely. Ergo, you may not be able to max out
a single condition using solely common berries, nor may you max out
every condition with any sort of berries. Unless I remember incorrectly.

No, you remembered correctly. However, you'll notice that the post to which
you reply later discourage the REALLY shite berries.

Each 'mon can eat up to 12, I believe. It took me eight B-grade ones that
Feebas liked to max out Beauty. No point wasting A-grade ones in that case,
but C-grade may be pushing it.

I've read in another FAQ that each pokemon can eat berries until the
"feel" total is something like 250 or 255, or thereabouts. Which is why
it's good to have a low feel. So 12 is probably the general maximum, but
I think it depends more on the feel total.

Ah, that makes lots more sense. Thanks for that info. It'll probably be
helpful some day.

Four Palmtre berry blocks got my Milotic. With a couple of other stats
raised too. It was a while ago, so I don't remember which ones. I can
probably max out a bunch more stats though.

Are you being serious about Mew? If so what other secret are there?

I'd humour you, but...

NO! I was combining multiple famous hoaxes to form one MegaHoax, which I
assumed everyone would realise was fake.

There's a truck in the area of water where the SS Anne is in RBY. It does
NOTHING, but it's weird that it's there, so people made up the rumour that
it housed Mew.

Plenty of rumours involve getting all the Eeveelutions, and sometimes
training them to :L100. Some even involve the fake Eeveelution that
requires the non-existant Mist Stone which you can('t) get via another
elaborate hoax.

I hope I can get back into Pokemon soon. I haven't really become engrossed
by it like I did with previous games and therefore I've had no desire to
seek out the many mysteries of the game (mainly by using the net). I last
played Ruby in January, but I'm still looking forward to getting Collesium
in the next few months. What do you need for Colleseum anyway if you want to
use GB Pokemon? Gameboy link cable or something? These work with GBA SP
don't they? I also need to get E-reader and an Eon ticket if I want Latias,
unless there's another way to get it through Colleseum.

You need the cable that connects the GB to the controller port. I forget
what they're called, but it probably contains the word "adaptor".

Inciedentally, I already have one for use with Zelda, Wario World and such.
They do indeed work with SPs.

Coli might actually come bundled with this cable. Oh, and it takes up 48
blocks of memory, but again, you may get a card in the bundle.

There isn't. Still, you don't have to have an E-Reader to get the EON
ticket. I got mine at an event. You can try there. Otherwise, maybe you
could find someone else who has it; those who have it can share it with up
to a hundred people.
