Milotics are shown to be very peaceful Pokemon, arriving where there is conflict to attempt to bring it to a peaceful resolution. They can emit a blast that quells the anger and rage of both people and Pokemon, calming all those around them.


Strengths and Weaknesses


With a low general Attack stat, it’s important to prioritize moves that rely on Special Attack and Defense, as Milotic excels in those. Being a Water-type, Milotic is a great choice for opponents that are Ground, Rock, or Fire types. Just be sure to watch out for Pokemon with Grass and Electric moves, as they can quickly put Milotic out of commission.


Shiny Milotic


A Shiny Milotic is drastically different from its normal counterpart, its coloration almost an inverse of the usual color palette. A shiny Milotic keeps the cream middle and red antenne, but their fin is now blue and their tail is predominantly yellow. To acquire a Shiny Milotic of your own, you must either find a shiny Feebas, hatch one from an egg, or find someone to trade one with.

Pair this with leftovers, and your Milotic will recover 1/16 of its max HP after every turn.


ScaldRecover
HazeIce Beam

Though similar in purpose, this moveset is more offensive, disregarding playing it safe and emphasizing Ice and Water-based moves.
