Fish go burrrrrr
Catching great version of this goddamn fish is pain in the ass. I questioned my life while trying to catch it. Thx *****ing magikarp
Found them in Elders Recess Eastern Camp. Look in the water behind the tent, they look like small brown/black fish with yellow eyes. Also if you look further left theres a platinum fish.
To anyone trying to catch the giant version of this fish to finish out all the endemic life, it does spawn at all the zones listed above though the chance is stupidly rare. Id say at least 10 times more rare than any other creature on the list. It took me 507 regular fish before I finally saw one and that's not counting the ones I didn't feel like catching. So if you've been trying to complete your crafting menu or unlock the endemic life background and haven't seen this fish spawn in hundreds of attempts, its just stupidly rare because apparently Capcom loves punishing completionists.
