Pokémon Ultra Moon: Rare Pokémon and SOS chaining.

Hi guys!

It’s been a while since I posted, but I will explain why in my next post. Let’s just dig into the nitty gritty.

So I decided to do a little something different to me. I decided to try and hunt down a rare pokemon! This rare just happened to be

Feebas!

If you don’t know, Feebas is the Fish Pokémon needed to evolve into Milotic, the Tender Pokémon!

 

Info on Feebas:

Because of its wretched appearance, most people pay it no attention, but there are some who collect Feebas—and Feebas alone!

I wanted to catch one of these bad boys for a while. I love love love Feebas and Milotic. I have since their debut in R/S/E. I remember accidently finding the ONE RANDOM FREAKING TILE and getting like 6 of the things haha.

Alright, just as a small idea of what I did:

You can find Feebas on  one of these two areas:

When I looked I am had only known of the first one and it’s 1% encounter rate.

You have to obviously fish these little dudes up at the bubble areas, so I went to the one closest to the stairwell to make the bubbles reappear a lot easier.

Out of 24 going back and forth, here are my results:

No bubbles: 11

Bubbles with other Pokémon: 5

Bubbles with items: 7

Feebas: 1

I was EXTREMELY lucky. With the area I was in, it could have taken as long as… well.

My (ongoing) Snorlax SOS.

If you don’t know:

Munchlax is the Big Eater Pokémon and Snorlax is the Sleeping Pokémon You can find Snorlax with SOS chaining a Munchlax.

Info on Munchlax:

Anything that looks edible, Munchlax will go on and swallow whole. Its stomach is tough enough to handle it even if the food has gone rotten. 

Info on Snorlax:

It has no interest in anything other than eating. Even if you climb up on its stomach while it’s napping, it doesn’t seem to mind at all!

You can find Munchlax here:

I use the false swipe/adrenaline orb method!

  • Find Pokémon that has the SOS chain
  • Use false swipe
  • Use an Adrenaline Orb
  • K-O the unwanted other Pokémon that come to it’s aid until you find the one you want.
  • K-O the original after a while and replace it with one it called of the same kind as it will eventually start to struggle and K-O itself.
  • Do the first 4 bullets and then rinse, wash, repeat.

So far after a few days I am at:

86 all together Pokemon

Non Munchlax(non SOS, just looking for the Munchlax): 27

Munchlax(non SOS summoned): 3

Pokémon summoned by SOS: 54

Non Munchlax summoned by SOS:  5 (5 Happiny)

Munchlax summoned by SOS: 49

This has been over the course of a few hours spent the last few days. I never realized how tedious this was.

It really, REALLY irks me that both Happiny and Snorlax have a 5% chance of showing, but ALL I HAVE SEEN IS HAPPINY. ಠ_ಠ

WHY.

JUST WHY.

I mean, I did end up catching one on one of the first two non SOS founds, but still.

STILL.

I will keep updating on the progress with the Snorlax hunt. I plan on doing other hunts too! Here are a few I have planned:

Clefairy

Gengar

Dragonite/nair

Anyways, I think that will be all for now. I will be posting an update soon! Hope all is well!
