    Magikarp--The most useless Pokemon in existence. ...Or is it?







    What's your opinion on Magikarp? :D





    IMO it is the best fish Pokemon ever.

      I'd say Magikarp is either a flaming ball of terror, or a flaming hunk of crap
      the only way to make it work is to use the Smeagle Spore/Belly Drum/Agility/Baton Pass strategy on it, and have it use flail.
      Otherwise? it's a giant, flopping, indescribably useless fish.

        True Magikarp sucks, but it's a huge confidence boost beating someone with it though!

          I love you.

          As if I haven't posted
          this vid enough...

          Anyways, I
          love Magikarp; it's easily the most epic Pokemon. Magikarp is one of my all-time favorites, until he evolves into that dimwitted dragon dancing demonic dingbat. I use to have a Magikarp themed sig. I've caught a level 93 Magikarp in Platinum.

              I'm gonna catch a Magikarp in Emerald the first chance I get. A nice Magikarp with the proper training and care will become a beautiful (?) Gyarados...and he pwns everything

                Well, I just caught a level 101!

                I always buy Magikarp at Mt. Moon in R/B/Y/FR/LG. It's quite useful to have a Gyarados early in the game.

                I think we've all seen the video of the Magikarp sweep with assistance from Salac Berry/Belly Drum Smeargle. XD

                I personally don't have the patience to train a Magikarp, and I hate using cliche pokemon like Gyarados, but they're both admittedly pretty awesome. :D

                    Oh, that video.

                    It's not awesome until you've tried it...and succeeded

                      This video has inspired me. My friend insists he can beat me at pokemon once I get a team built in HGSS.
                      I'm sweeping him with a 'karp.
                      It's happening.

                        Make Magikarp learn Flail and it'll be capable of sweeping anything. xD

                          A shiny Magiarp means more to me than a shiny non-hacked non-cloned self earned deoxys. XD
                          Mika's song "We are golden" Fits it like a charm. =D

                            Actually that reminds me of a Magikarp movie I saw on NG a while back...

                              Magikarp is the best red/orange fish in pokemon existance. If only because he is the only red/orange fish pokemon in existance, then so be it.

                                i dont get the point of that pokemon.
                                it's so weird all it does pretty much is splash and tackle.
                                go gyrados (:

                                  Magikarp's a good pokemon imo. I usually catch it at level 15, when it has tackle, so I can use it right away to start training with it. I can honestly say Magikarp's design is one of my all time favorites for Pokemon. =x

                                  Idunno guys, you dont give him enough credit.

                                  Magikarp @ Choice Band
                                  Ability: Swift Swim
                                  252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
                                  Adamant Nature
                                  -Tackle
                                  -Flail
                                  -Bounce
                                  -Splash

                                  This moveset utilizes Magikarp's ability Swift Swim, which doubles his speed in the Rain. Flail and Tackle would normally be walled by ghosts, but thanks to gen 4 he got Bounce, so he can hit ghost types. Choice Band buffs these moves up even more. In rain, this moveset can be quite devistating.

                                  Magikarp @ Leftovers
                                  252 HP / 56 Atk / 200 Spe
                                  Impish Nature
                                  Ability: Swift Swim
                                  -Bounce
                                  -Flail
                                  -Tackle
                                  -Splash

                                  A bulkier version of the above Magikarp, bounce gives you a turn of immunity and extra leftover's recovery. Flail and Tackle give you decent coverage. Splash is great for PP Stalling at the end of matches.

                                    That's the best Magikarp, survive a hit and flail back at them.
