I used it in my team and it has spent a lot of time in the Pokeathlon when I was grinding to get evolution stones.

Sadly, he is my first and only shiny, in 10+ years of playing, and he has become my slave.

If it has a good nature, (and if I didn't pick Totodile) I'll use it. Otherwise it ends up an HM slave or GTS fodder.

Since I had a vacant spot on my team for Dratini I used it until Blackthorn, than it became my Whirlpool slave

Even thought practically every owner of SS/HG has it, I caught it just because it was shiny.

Temporarily he became a HM Slave, but he's nice and cosy in his box now. Being red means virtually nothing; everyone gets a Shiny Gyarados, which sort of defies the point if you think about it.

I've always had a bit of a beef with Gyarados. The whole Magikarp/Gyarados thing is a bit of a joke. Even though Gyarados is strong, by using Exp. Share or switching out your Magikarp it has no Effort Points, so it is a lot weaker than it could be. No, I've never really wanted a Gyarados in my team.

After catching it in Heart Gold I boxed it for the rest of my time playing it. However, once I was able to transfer Pokémon from Gen IV to V, I actually begun training it.

I usually box it, but this time I'll SR for a good nature and try to use it competitively.

It really depended on how I felt at the time and if it was in a challenge or not. If I was feeling unsure about the Rocket hideout, I'd use it to storm the hideout. In my Solo Challenge with Luna(Gardevoir), I made it my whirlpool slave since I already made my other Gyarados a HM Slave(Surf, Waterfall, Strength, Rock Smash). In my flying monotype, it became one of my main fighters. If I felt like being silly, I'd just use it as a double battle partner. Usually, I'd box it to never see the dark of night.

Caught it, never used it again. Not that you shouldn't use it, it was just that I though it would be overpowered and ruin the game for some reason back then XD

Mine usually ended up having a bad nature, so I've always just tossed it into a box. Also, I've usually already planned what Water-type to use beforehand, and it just so happens that I never really pick Gyarados (owing to how often I used it in earlier games).

Surprised so many boxed it! Gyarados was very helpful in beating the league champion. Ice fang ko'd all three of lance's dragonite :D. And hydro pump was probably my only chance of knocking that houndoom off earlier.

It went into the magical black hole that was my PC box, never to see the light of the sun ever again in endless stasis.
