    Magikarp is a water-type pokemon first found in the original Pokemon Red/Blue. Without the guidance of a trainer, wild Magikarp flounder around harmlessly, uselessly splashing opponents in an ineffective attack... why would anyone train such a useless pokemon?

    Short summary describing this concept.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    National Pokedex No: #129 
    Type: Water 
    Found in: All Regions 
    Evolves at: Level 20 

    Evolutionary Chain 

    Magikarp (Level 20)--> Gyarados 


    • Magikarp is considered the weakest Pokémon in existence. Magikarp starts with only one move, Splash, which does absolutely nothing. It is not until level 15 that Magikarp learns its first useful move, Tackle. Magikarp's small moveset, low stats, and inability to learn additonal moves through TMs and HMs make it a poor choice for battles. 
    • Although Magikarp itself is extremely weak, it evolves into the much stronger Gyarados at level 20.
    • Hint have Magikarp be your first pokemon, then switch him out once the battle starts.
