Magikarp are medium - sized fish pokemon with large, heavy reddish - orange scales. It has large, vacant eyes and pink lips. Its pectoral and tail fins are white, but it has stiff, three - peak fins on its back and stomach that are both yellow. It also has long barbels. Barbels are white on female and tan on male. Long - live Magikarp is able to utilize its immense splashing power to leap high enough to scale mountains. It also has a strong enough immune system to survive in the most polluted of waters. However, it is usually overlooked by trainers because of its perceived weakness: even in the heat of battle, it will do nothing but flop around. It is not a strong swimmer, and currents in water will sweep it downstream. It is normally See using its former signature move, Splash, to leap out of water, which makes them easy targets for predators such as Pidgeotto. It is believed that ancestors of Magikarp were actually much stronger than modern Magikarp, and this led scientists to research this species. Magikarp are found in many bodies of water, such as lakes, rivers, and ponds. However, due to its weak swimming ability, it usually lives downstream of water's flow.

Trivia

Magikarp is generally regarded as the weakest Pokemon in Pokemon games. Stat - wise, however, Solo Form Wishiwashi is. Cosmog can actually be considered weaker than Magikarp, as it can't learn any damage dealing moves. In Pokemon Platinum Version and Pokemon Black and White Version 2, Magikarp is both the lowest - and highest - level non - glitch Pokemon available for capture. By using Super Rod at pond in the resort area or in the Nature Preserve, this Pokemon can be encountered and caught at levels ranging from 1 to 100. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Explorers of Darkness are only games in which Magikarp can learn moves via TMs. This holds true in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. According to Misty in Pokemon Shipwreck, Magikarp are just scales and bones, making them unsuitable for eating. It is similar to Feebas in that it is a weak fish Pokemon that evolves into a powerful serpentine one. In Generation VI onwards, its in - game sprite just helplessly flops around. Curiously, other fish Pokemon, such as Goldeen, do not exhibit such animations and seem to swim in the air. This probably signifies its weakness. Magikarp and its evolution Gyarados have a unique Egg Group combo.

Character, ability, or piece of equipment that seem completely useless at first, but with repeated use and patience can be highly effective later. This can be an item / weapon you need to explicitly power up or even an entire low - level character who gets some really awesome techniques later. Trope Namer is Magikarp from Pokemon, ubiquitous, dim - witted, carp - like Pokemon who only know move Splash, which, as the game gleefully informs you, has no effect. You learn Tackle, most basic attack in Pokemon, at Level 15, and lucky few have it as innate skill. In short, it's pathetic. Until you painstakingly grind it up to Level 20, at which point it Evolve into Gyarados, sea leviathan ready to wreak vengeance from on high with its own lethal abilities, and can Mega Evolve further to steamroll just about anything that dare to pick fight with it. Magikarp is based on an old Japanese legend about carps which manage to swim up waterfall and become dragon through sheer perseverance. Leaked Experience can be very helpful in getting this to the appropriate point without weakening the party or putting Magikarp Power in danger. Rare Candy may also be great help. Relate to Level Grinding in that player is forced to drag entirely useless item or NPC around for level after level, until it becomes useful. Similar but distinct Trope is Retro Upgrade, where instead of upgrading Magikarp itself, you earn or upgrade something else which makes Magikarp much more powerful. Compare Gathering Steam, which likewise starts out pathetic but gains in capability throughout the fight, Elite Tweak, Future Badass, take Level in Badass, linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards, lethal Joke Character, Evolving Weapon, Evolving Attack, Equipment Upgrade, Difficult, but Awesome, and Changing Gameplay Priorities. Contrast Breakable Weapons, What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?, Taste of Power, and Crutch Character. Can sometimes be heard ask, who's Laughing Now?


Trivia

In Pokemon Red and Blue beta, Gyarados name was Skulkraken, combination of skull and kraken. Gyarados's original design resembles a massive leech - like creature without eyes.

Both have base stat totals of 540, only difference being the distribution of their Attack, Special Attack and Special Defense stats.

On judgement Day, minor character recalled a story where he fell into a river, and when he came out, he found gold Magikarp in his shirt, which he traded for Charmeleon.

Detective Pikachu viewers may have witnessed the beauty of evolution when Magikarp transforms into Gyarados onscreen, but how it happens is a mystery even to writers themselves. In fact, evolution was a key factor throughout the film on a thematic level and seeing Pokemon like Magikarp and Eevee literally evolve into their best selves was a fun way of paying homage to that. But since it is true that Ryme City doesn't allow Pokemon trainers or battles, and that the story itself doesn't introduce the concept of leveling up in any concrete way, that makes Magikarp's magical moment fertile ground for speculation. Obviously, kicking One is not a foolproof plan for evolution in the game, but changes in Detective Pikachu's world may have made the process little more poetic than simply reaching Level 20. Screenwriters Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit had fun contemplating questions in an exclusive interview with Screen Rant. While discussing the importance of evolution on a grander scale as opposed to game mechanics like XP or Rare Candy, Hernandez say: he's certainly right that fans of games love spotting moments that serve as callbacks, of which Detective Pikachu has several, and coming up with Gyarados backstory can serve as fun game all on its own. After all, being housed in underground and illegal battle locations could serve as a harsh life experience for any Pokemon - even if they don't participate in fights themselves. And who knows where the poor fish Pokemon was imported from before it wound up in that tank? A Kick from Pikachu in the midst of the chaotic Charizard's fiery Rage may have been the last straw. While Hernandez and Samit have their own theories and ideas for movie spin - offs, all of which would make for fun family fare, Detective Pikachu is already well on its way to becoming a film universe. The Direct Detective Pikachu sequel was already confirmed earlier this year when 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel was hired to pen the script. Plus, with potential stand - alone films in the works, there's plenty of opportunities to learn how Magikarp finds inner strength to make leap to Gyarados. Perhaps future movies will see Pikachu transform into Raichu, with or without Thunder Stone present. Until it's confirm, Detective Pikachu fans can debate among themselves, but they should remember that even the film's writer doesn't know.


Appearances

The only move all Magikarp know by nature is splash, attack which does nothing in regular battles - in contests, it has some redeeming value. At level 15, they learn Tackle, weak attack learnt naturally by many other Pokemon, Magikarp has also been able to learn to move Flail at level 30, attack varying in power depending on how damage user is. In Pokemon Red and Blue, as well as in Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen, Magikarp salesman in Pokemon Center outside of Mt. Moon will offer to sell players Magikarp. In every traditional Pokemon RPG, Magikarp can be obtained by using old fishing rods in any body of water. Magikarp are found in the Nintendo 64 game Pokemon Snap in all six of the games main courses. In Valley Course in particular, Magikarp can be hurled by Mankey and then shot into waterfall by Pester Ball in order to evolve into Gyarados. In Pokemon Channel, Magikarp can be found by fishing at Secret Cove, along with many other Pokemon. In Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, several Magikarp are blasted out of Lake Valor by Team Galactic and are shown to be flopping around helplessly in dry lake. In core games, Magikarp is almost a running gag. Pokedex entry in each game pokes fun at it. It is incredibly weak and, for a while, only Pokemon that can be caught using fishing rod.S However, if the player levels it up to level 20, Magikarp becomes Gyarados, extremely powerful Pokemon.

The name Magikarp makes sense. It is carp that is also magical. Gyarado name is more open to interpretation. It could be a reference to the word gyakusatsu, which is word for massacre or wholesale slaughter. As it stand, no one knows for sure what Gyarados name is reference to, and it still comes off as an unusual choice for Pokemon. When Pokemon Red & Blue were being localized for international audience, names of many of Pokemon were initially different. Some of these original names were better, like Rattata being called Rattatak, and Paras being known as Parasyte. There were a few bad names as well, such as Jigglypuff originally being called Pudding and Machop being know as Kara - Tee. During the early stages of Pokemon Red & Blue's development, Gyarados was named Skullkraken. This is a much more appropriate name for the kind of monster that Gyarados is, and it is a shame that it was change.
