Magikarp is a water-type Pokémon that made its debut in Generation 1. It resembles a small fish with a reddish-orange hue complemented by yellow fins and whiskers. This Pokemon is based on a carp and carries a significant reference to Chinese mythology wherein a carp that leaps over the Dragon Gate will transform into a dragon.

It is known for being one of the weakest in the world of Pokémon, with poor stats and a notably ineffective move called Splash. Nevertheless, through evolution, it transforms into the legendary dragon-like water and flying type Pokémon, Gyarados.

Similar to the main series, Magikarp will have its usual “Splash” ability. And upon reaching its maximum gauge, it will transform the formidable Gyarados. Take a glimpse of the video of Magikarp in action right below.
