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😁)
These friendly aquatic dinosaurs are very helpful in ocean travel or gathering oil. They can outrun megalodon's and other things, they usually just swim up to you trying to play with you. They don't attack either provoked or unprovoked (I think). They have an ability which they don't aggro anything (I think it's only on mobile), I literally swim with megalodons and they don't give a crap about me or my dolphin, I even touched a jellyfish (cnidaria's) and they didn't sting me. I'm serious!
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.
Tip : on mobile, certain ichthys get aggro’d by sea creatures when tamed, but certain others have the famous no aggro ability. While riding a no aggro ichthy, you have an entire world to explore. Nothing aggro’s onto you, even if you attack it. Ex. If you attack a meg, it might aggro for one second and attack but after that you can kill it without any hiccups. Keep in mind that not all ichthys have no aggro. You need to leave your newly tamed ichthy out in the water for a minute to see if anything aggro’s and kills it. If nothing kills or attacks it after a minute or two, the ichthy has no aggro.
Tip : in mobile, despite the common knowledge that either “ichthys lost no aggro ability” or “ichthys still have no aggro” there is something complicated : certain ichthys dont attract aggro until tamed, and certain other ichthys keep their no aggro ability forever. If you tame one, it might not have no aggro, so tame one and test the no aggro ability. If it has no aggro, you have found the perfect ocean mount. If it makes other creatures aggro, then it must be executed. I tamed 3 ichthys with no aggro, but then i tamed a 4th and it got eaten by megs immediately. that how i found this out
