Always put a tracking device on your ichthy. I once had an ichthy called mini on mobile, mini was a good tame, she never failed when I needed her, she was the first way I got to herbivore island, she could take me to all the best hunting beaches, but then one day I thought 'hey mini's such a good tame let's see if I can go around the whole island on her' so I tried I was doing well, I'd already got from my home in the footpaw to the sandspit near the red obelisk, but then mini started to get hungry, I went and looked for food for her and found a moschops, but it didn't give me much meat so I decided to go after a gallimimus it escaped, but when I got back to where I left mini she was gone, no death message no gap in my tame list just gone, for months I searched that sandspit for mini, but to no avail, one day a year after I'd lost her I was running low on tame slots, I knew I had to unclaim her, even now when I visit that sandspit I think I see her but I never do. RIP Mini 🐬💗
Not true. Icthys on mobile still are not attacked by anything in the ocean(unless u attack it). I tested it while taming a lv 80 mosa. Swam right next to it before I attacked. I still think icthys are the best underwater tame. Their fast, they have rider weaponry, and r perfect for taming plesiosaurs and mosas. Tamed easily, as they swim right up to u. They eat dodo kibble, and if u have 3-5 kibble, u can easily get one fast. (-like if this helps😁)
Once I tamed one of these and named it itchy. Itchy got his name from when I don’t mount him he always twitches around like his whole body got infested by fleas. Once I played with my friend and we were traveling to dodo island when a random sarco came out of nowhere and started biting my friend. I ordered my trike (Tina) to get rid of that thing. But Tina fell into the water and attracted megalodons. We didn’t have any cargo on that raft so we abandoned it immediately and I jumped onto Itchy and he was insane fast and swam away before the megolodons could react. Sadly for my friend and Tina that they died and my friend lost all his gear because he did not have one of these. Itchy was a real life saver for me. A good starter mount for starters.
MOBILE PLAYERS: I have tested it, and NOTHING, I mean NOTHING attacks you. This includes jellyfish, anglers, mosas, megs, EVERYTHING. HOWEVER. This only applies if you DO NOT attack the thing in question (or ammonites), and in my experience this makes it perfect for scouting out high-level potential tames
