Magikarp (Japaneseコイキング Koiking) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Gyarados starting at level 20.

Biology

 
The variety of Magikarp known as the "Blue Raindrops"

Magikarp is a fishlike Pokémon with large, heavy reddish-orange scales. It has large, vacant eyes and pink lips. Its pectoral and tail fins are white. On its back is a stiff, three-peaked yellow fin, resembling a crown; there is an identical fin on its underside. It also has long barbels. The barbels are white on a female and pale-yellow on a male. A long-lived 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 believed that the ancestors of Magikarp were actually much stronger than modern Magikarp, and this led scientists to research this species.

Magikarp is found in many bodies of water, such as lakes, rivers, and ponds. However, due to its weak swimming ability, it usually lives downstream of the water's flow. It is normally seen using its former signature moveSplash, to leap out of the water, which makes it an easy target for predators such as Pidgeotto and PidgeotFrillish also preys on Magikarp.

In Hoppy Town, there are at least 31 unique pattern varieties of Magikarp, with their scales coming in colors such as gray, black, white, purple, pink, violet, apricot, and brown. These patterns can be classified by groups, depending on how the Magikarp looks while it is still small; a specific pattern arises when it becomes bigger. Which patterns can be caught depend on the type of Old Rod; the better the rod, the more groups of patterns can be fished. The people in Hoppy Town train their Magikarp to jump the highest in order to compete in a series of Leagues to win prizes.

Ruby Magikarp is a pathetic excuse for a Pokémon that is only capable of flopping and splashing. This behavior prompted scientists to undertake research into it.
Sapphire Magikarp is virtually useless in battle as it can only splash around. As a result, it is considered to be weak. However, it is actually a very hardy Pokémon that can survive in any body of water no matter how polluted it is.
Emerald Its swimming muscles are weak, so it is easily washed away by currents. In places where water pools, you can see many Magikarp deposited there by the flow.

Diamond It is said to be the world's weakest Pokémon. No one knows why it has managed to survive.
Pearl It is unable to swim against even slow-moving currents. It always splashes about for some reason.
Platinum A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.
HeartGold An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more than seven feet.
SoulSilver For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like Pidgeotto to catch it mid-jump.

X It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. It is the most weak and pathetic Pokémon in the world.
Y In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
Omega Ruby Magikarp is a pathetic excuse for a Pokémon that is only capable of flopping and splashing. This behavior prompted scientists to undertake research into it.
Alpha Sapphire Magikarp is virtually useless in battle as it can only splash around. As a result, it is considered to be weak. However, it is actually a very hardy Pokémon that can survive in any body of water no matter how polluted it is.

Sun Although weak and helpless, this Pokémon is incredibly fertile. They exist in such multitudes, you'll soon grow tired of seeing them.
Moon Its reckless leaps make it easy pickings for predators. On the bright side, many Pokémon enjoy longer life spans, thanks to Magikarp.
Ultra Sun In the distant past, they were fairly strong, but they have become gradually weaker over time.
Ultra Moon Thanks to their strong hold on life, dirty water doesn't bother them at all. They live in waters all over the world!
Let's Go Pikachu Famous for being very unreliable. It can be found swimming in seas, lakes, rivers and shallow puddles.

Wherever there's a body of water, odds are you'll also find Magikarp. All it does is flop around, so it seems kinda weak, but it may in fact be hardier than it looks!

In Pokémon GO, Magikarp can be obtained by completing 1/4 of the Special ResearchMaking a Splash.

Trivia

  • Magikarp is tied with Gyarados and Regigigas for being the lowest level Pokémon encountered in the wild, as well as also tied with Gyarados for the highest level Pokémon encountered in the wild. In Platinum, Magikarp can be found at levels ranging from level 1 to 100 in the Resort Area, and in Black 2 and White 2, it can be found at the same levels in the Nature Preserve; both require a Super Rod.
  • Magikarp and its evolved form require the fewest Egg cycles to hatch, with five.
    • Magikarp and its evolved form are also the only Pokémon with a unique base Egg cycle.
  • Magikarp was the first Pokémon featured in Professor Oak's Pokémon Lecture in EP061.
  • Magikarp and its evolved form's Egg Group combination (Water 2 and Dragon) is unique.
  • Magikarp is one of fourteen Pokémon that one could collect foreign Pokédex entries for in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.
  • Magikarp shares several notable similarities to Feebas:
    • Its level-up moves are exactly the same as those of Feebas.
      • However, Feebas can learn multiple moves from TMs and HMs, hatch from an Egg with Egg Moves, and learn new moves via Move Tutors, making it slightly more useful in battle.
    • Magikarp shares its category name with Feebas. They are both known as the Fish Pokémon.
    • Magikarp and Feebas have almost identical stats. However, Magikarp has a higher Special Attack and Defense, while Feebas has a higher Attack and Special Defense. Both Attack and Defense stats for Magikarp and Feebas are reversed.
    • They share the largest base stat total increase of all Pokémon when they evolve: 340 (from 200 to 540).
    • They both change appearances drastically after evolution, evolving into serpentine, dragon-like Pokémon.
  • Magikarp is the only Pokémon which can be found in every course in the game Pokémon Snap except Rainbow Cloud (which features only Mew).
  • Together with PichuRattataNinjaskGoldeen, and Seedot, Magikarp is the easiest Pokémon to catch in Pokémon Ranger, with only one loop necessary.
  • Magikarp is tied with CaterpieWeedleIgglybuffCarvanhaAttack Forme Deoxys, and Stonjourner for having the lowest Special Defense stat of all Pokémon.
  • Magikarp is the only Pokémon in Pokémon Conquest that uses a move that would not give it same-type attack bonus in the main series games, as it uses Splash.
  • On July 28, 2016 and May 12, 2017, The Pokémon Company and The Pokémon Company International respectively posted a Magikarp-themed music video onto their YouTube channels, titled the Magikarp Song.

Origin

On the Origin of Species: Magikarp

Magikarp is based on the Asian carp, which are easily frightened by disturbances in water and can jump 8–10 feet (2.5–3 m.) in the air.

Magikarp's evolution into Gyarados is based on a legend about how carp that leaped over the Dragon Gate would become dragons. Several waterfalls and cataracts in China are believed to be the location of the Dragon Gate. This legend is an allegory of the drive and efforts needed to overcome obstacles. This may have inspired an element in Pokémon Snap where, after certain steps are taken, a Magikarp will splash its way into a waterfall where it evolves.

Name origin

Magikarp's name is a combination of magic and carp, possibly mocking the Magikarp as a species, as someone with "magic" powers is generally thought to be quite powerful, which Magikarp is not (though carp are said to be able to transform into dragons, which is magical in its own way).

Koiking is a combination of 鯉 koi (carp) and king, giving its name an ironic slant similar to its English name.
