    I spent hours looking on Rt. 119 in Emerald, but I finally found it. And then I went back and caught an entire box full for trades.

    I did. First time was sheer luck. Then another time when I found out about the mechanics, I made a tile map of the entire route, and did the fish 3 times per tile method. After getting a few, I only kept a Milotic which I breed when necessary. Haven't bothered to find any in subsequent Gens.

    I caught a Feebas on Ruby after searching forever. I have never caught another Feebas on any game since, I just breed when I need another one.

    I've found it a few times. Most recently I found it on accident, but otherwise it was hard.

    I had to fish in every tile for that thing. I think I struggled as much with making it evolve since it was way easier to use Pokéblocks made with the Blend Master (only in Emerald) or with those high-leveled berries that took a while to grow which you can get by telling a special phrase to the Berry Master's wife than to use Pokéblocks just made with Chesto Berries.

    I searched for hours. My friend ended up trading me one that he bred.

    I first read how on Bulbapedia. Then I scoured every tile of the river for hours until I found 'em. Once I found them, I didn't leave without at least three.

    Good times.

    I had to read up on how to find it but after that I just fished a few times tile-to-tile until I got one. After that it was Ditto/breeding fodder. Didn't take me too long like an hour or so...

    Found one in Ruby along one of the shores, bred it until I had a potential Milotic

    I haven't properly raised one, though.

    Once I knew the method for catching Feebas, I thought the process of finding one was (very long and annoying, but) easy. But before that, I was a lost puppy who was only able to find Magikarp and Carvanha...

    I looked at Pokedex and saw i didn't had a Feebas, so i checked its route and it took me like 10 minutes to find one and catch, then i said "well that was easy". Then i did some search on the internet and found out that he can be quite rare and "oh man i got really lucky then".

    I searched for a Feebas for several weeks and eventually decided it wasn't worth the time. Stupid ugly fish.

    Nope. I played Ruby and Emerald for ten years and never found one. It's why I'm glad Unova made them easier to find.

    Took me a few days but I managed to find it. Still remember the location tile to this day.

    On a recent playthrough of Sapphire I decided I wanted a Feebas. I was determined to check every single tile until I found it, and lo and behold! I found one on the fourth(or fifth) tile I checked! So happy XD

    I didn't even know Feebas was special at the time. I probably just assumed that it was exclusive to Sapphire since I owned Ruby.

    I was able to catch one in Ruby eventually but I believe it had to do with the internal battery running dry.

    I did find and catch Feebas in Ruby and Emerald, as well as Platinum. It wasn't all that hard, actually.

    I picked no. If I recall, I just simply charged through the route. It's been a very long time since I played R/S/E. Not even in the remake. I was happy with the team I had when I first played Alpha Sapphire. It was Swampert, Breloom, Manectric, Swellow, Camerupt and Latias.
