Evolving Feebas is the only way to get Milotic. Give your Prism Scale to a Feebas and then trade it with another trainer which will evolve it to a Milotic and back again. Your other option is to raise your Feebas’ beauty level and then level it up to evolve it to a Milotic.

The Prism Scale option requires you have another player to trade with. This can be done on Union Circle or the PokéPortal. If you opted to raise Feebas’ beauty level to evolve it into a Milotic instead of using the Prism Scale, you have to feed it Dry Poffins. A lot of Dry Poffins. Once its beauty level is high enough, you will get a Milotic.

For either options, you need to get a Feebas Pokémon which spawn inside the Oni Mountain Cave near the corner of Crystal Pool located in the center of the Kitakami region. Unlike the other water Pokémon, Feebas is hiding underwater so watch out for bubbles so you know it’s there. To get Feebas, you’ll need access to The Teal Mask DLC otherwise you can’t get in the Kitakami region.
