How to Catch Feebas..!! cheats for Pokemon Sapphire

How to Catch Feebas..!!

Feebas is a very, very rare Pokemon that appears only at 6 water tiles at route 119. He is very rare for his evolution, Milotic, is too much stronger. It is very hard to find feebas especially when you lack patience.
At my very first time of finding feebas at Pokemon Sapphire, I caught mine at the third try. It is possibly luck because I don't follow some steps in finding it. Instead, I just fish whenever I feel.
To catch feebas:
1. Prepare for ultra balls (great ball could also use)
2. Fly to dewford town, speak to the kid above the Pokemon Center, the one who talks about trendy phrase. He will ask you, and say no. Change the phrases to "EXCELLENT LIFE". After you do, prepare yourself for a battle.
3. Go to Route 119, on the left side of house with wingulls you will see a pond, with a fisherman standing next, battle him for experience, otherwise, feebas will not be caught.
4. After the battle, stand just below him, face to the right then surf, swim a tile to the left then face upward. Here it goes:
F= fisherman
X= will be the spot
.=will be the water tile
O=will be the character
,= land tile


5. Fish for feebas(i recommend old rod) for about 5 times, if you spot one, it will be an easy catch..

Please rate my submission..
I hope I helped!

Okay, so that is his phrase, why not make your own? Maybe the phrase you'll choose will be lucky in finding Feebas than his. I caught mine with the phrase "THIRSTY HAPPINESS". I like it. I got another version of the same game but when I fished there, There was no luck. So I challenged myself to go over the whole lake. And I found mine 2 blocks away at the middle of the waterfall near the secret base. This is the guide:

... You guys all need to chill out. On major, official websites (bulbapedia) it states that it is COMPLETELY RANDOM. The only advice I can give is rub a lot of rabbits' feet, invest in four-leaf clovers, and just hope you're lucky enough to find one of the 6 tiles.

I already changed it to "SHROOMISH BLAZE" and then "BRELOOM BLAZE" so I am sacred to change it again because this so called "Cheat" may not help (if you are wondering why i called it "SHROOMISH BLAZE" then "BREELOOM BLAZE" baecause i never used my Mudkip, but I started to train a Shroomish from Petalburg Woods and now my Mudkip is in Day-Care and I have a level 58 Breloom in my party).

Feebas is found in 6 blocks of route 119, it randomises after the trendy phrase is changed, and using old rod is good because then you need only one "oh there is a bite" to get a pokemon on the hook and others needs a lot and its easier to run from level 5-10 pokemon then from 25- 35 carvhanas (this tip is for people that dont have a fast pokemon like mine level 80 rayquaza) ;)

How about using a Super Rod.. So the chances are Carvanha and Feebas only.

This cheat is definately incorrect. No matter which versiin you play feebas is going to be hard to catch. Its location and tiles vary per game and also change depending on many other things you cose to do or not do. But that doesnt mean that you can all start picking on this person just because he gave false information. It may have worjed for them so they weee just trying to help. So ease up a bit ok?

I caught him in the river close to the weather station (Route 119; Pokemon Sapphire), when you surf down, and get close to the third rock, I chose top left corner, one square away from it. I fished him with the Good Rod, there were 4x Feebas, and 3 or 4x Magikarp. I hope this helps! GL

best thing to do is have a pokemon that knows surf. Head to route 119 with a SUPER ROD. and fish around. There are 6 spots where a febas can be found so you will have to search around for a little while to find one. But if you go down to the house where the girl is with all the wingulls and go over to where the rocks are that form a zigzag line and look around there for a little while you may have better luck. That is where i found mine. GOOD LUCK!

so is the best way just to have patience and just search around with a super rod for a while?

There might be some truth to this cheat. I tried fishing were he sayed but I didn't see any feebas. I then fished below and to the left of the boulder in the water that was closest to the house with all the wingull. I caught three feebas there in a short period of time. It might have been the phrase from the cheat or pure luck, but at least part of this cheat might work.
