Magikarp is a Water-type Pokémon found in rivers and oceans. It evolves into Gyarados at level 20. Although this Pokémon is capable of surviving in even the most polluted ponds, it is usually overlooked by Trainers because it is pathetically weak; even in the heat of battle it will do nothing but flop around. It is not a strong swimmer, and currents in the water will sweep it downstream. They are normally seen using Splash to leap out of the water, which is strange, as it makes them easy targets to predators such as Pidgeot. Before the species multiplied, it is believed that the ancestors of Magikarp were actually much stronger than the Magikarp seen today, and this belief has led scientists to research this species.

Magikarp shares little resemblance to its evolution.

Magikarp also have an easter egg in that they have a second skin for if they have been set on fire. It is a more cooked colour, and also has x's for eyes. They will retain this skin even after being caught. It's called zombie Gyarados NOTE: You can not get a shiny zombie Gyarados
