** The FishingMiniGame is completely random as well. First off, it's completely random whether or not Pikachu is going to sucessfully pull in the catch. And the Pokémon that are reeled in are random as well. And no, throwing the Pokémon food doesn't help you at all, if anything, it's just there to keep you entertained while you wait.
