Fishing is a recreation that is commonly seen in the Pokémon world. It is a way to catch Pokémon in the water. In fact, some Pokémon can only be caught by using a fishing rod.

Types of fishing rod[]

There are three fishing rods that are given out throughout the course of Pokémon Sage, and each one requires solving a puzzle before being given it.

Catching Pokémon[]

Fishing is simply a matter of standing next to water and using the rod. Sometimes, a Pokémon will bite. Other times, nothing will happen, and the player will automatically stop fishing after a short time. There is a random chance of either happening, so if the rod catches nothing, players can cast it out again. The player can fish while standing next to water, or while surfing on a Pokémon.

The player has to confirm as soon as a Pokémon bites, or else it will get away. When there is a bite, a message will say so, and the player should press the action button as quickly as possible.

If the first Pokémon in the player's party has the ability Suction Cups or Sticky Hold, the player is more likely to get a bite.
