    What would you do if you found an egg on the side of the road. You pick it up and decide to keep it. you play with it. You love the egg. Its you best friend you couldn't possibly love it anymore than you do. Then it hatches into Magikarp.

    I would still keep it and love it cuz i love all Pokemon regardless of what it is.

      One word: Gyarados. :P No I'm kidding but it's a living being which you've cared for there's no way I could leave. It's like having an ugly baby, I'd love it no matter what. (probably not the greatest reference, and I'm not that shallow but I'm just saying I'd love it no matter what!)

      I'd keep it, because guess what it evolves into? (Joking myself) Besides, if I loved the egg, like it was my best friend, or even my child, then why'd it change when it hatches into a useless pokemon? Besides, I like Magikarp a lot.

        Magikarp deserves some lovin'. :D

        Yup, I'd pop him straight into a fish tank, feed him, care for him, wait for him to evolve and then wonder how this is going to work because there are no Poké Balls in this world and I don't have a tank big enough for a Gyarados. >.<

        EDIT: 700 posts! :D:D:D:D

          Yeah I mean there would be a lot of problems having a Pokemon in a world with no Pokemon balls or anything... I mean I guess I would carry him around all the time in a fish bowl but then what? It would kinda just be like owning a normal fish... Of course I would still care for it and about it but...I dont know. And if it evolved... Oh gez that's definetly going to be a problem... Thank god I live right next to the ocean XD

          If I knew that it was a Magikarp egg, then I'll probably not raise it. If I did, and it evolved because of me, then I probably put the human race in jeopardy. The most humane thing I could do was to give it to some specialists to raise it in a controlled environment.

            Lol. Said specialists would torture it.

            I'd raise it, treat it like, brilliantly, until it evolved. Then swim round and down into Whitehall, bang the politicians' heads together, throw Gordon Brown into the sea, put Conservatives in charge, and force them to listen to Nick Clegg

              I've had this odd obsession with Magikarp this past week... I'd keep it regardless anyways. It's still my best friend and Magikarp deserves some love. :D

                Release it into the wild. I wouldn't be able to care for a fish.

                  find a way to teach it tackle early (if anyone knows how the anime works, you can teach moves early), and train it to be a curbstompin' Gyarados.

                    Keep it, of course. It would live in my hot tub :3

                    And then evolve it in to Gyarados!

                      I would keep it. Any Pokémon I would actually find in real life would be pretty amazing.

                        Make some Karp fillets for dinner.

                        I just wouldn't feel like bothering with a Magikarp or a Gyarados.

                          Yep yep, waffle-san stole the words right out of my mouth. Keep it and then turn it into a fierce Gyrados like Misty's. The perfect way to help it gain levels is to throw it at other pkmn immediately resulting in a KO. Though...make sure you don't throw it too hard or it might not like you when it becomes a gyrados.

                            I would keep it and not even evolve it. Magikarp owns all Pokemon, even Gyrados and Arceus combined.

                            Magikarp used splash!
                            The whole universe exploded!

                              If a Magikarp does hatch from the egg, then I would definitely keep it. Who knows, this could probably be the only Pokemon on Earth. I would name her Georgie and keep her in a blue fish tank.

                              Even if I love her to death, she wouldn't evolve. Because of she does, the military would probably have to put her down. Worse, they would transport her to Area 51. ;;

                              Besides, her being a Magikpark instead of a Gyarados would make the situation better. I would carry her around in a fish bowl and show it to all my friends.

                              I quite like Magikarp, so yes!

                              But had the question be "it turns out to be your least favourite Pokémon"... DDDD: I don't think I could bring myself to keep an Aipom, no matter how attached I got to its egg. ._.;; So really, I'd be so grateful it was a Magikarp and not something else.

                              Put it through an intense strength training regimen (swimming with weights attached, etc.) so when it evolves it will aid me in achieving my goal of world domination.

                              Or just stick it in a fish tank and exchange blank stares with it.

                                Get rid of it. Eeew Magikarp. I mean I did raise it, but it'll be better in the wild... NOT!

                                  xD I'm reminded of that song "Ugly Baby" now.

                                  That being said... I'd sell 'ol Magikarp on eBay.

                                    I would hatch it Magikarps is what makes the world go round. "Magikarp used bounce on my chemistry teacher!"

                                      To those who said they would release it, DO YOU KNOW WHA THAT WOULD DO TO THE ENVIROMENT?!?!?! Magikarp would breed with other fish like shark becaude they would be in their egg group causing the baby magikarp to evolve into MRGA SHARK GYRADOSES! And with no natural preditors, the population would keep growing until they overthrow all other fish causing the enviroment to go out of wack causing GIANT WHALES TO BREED WITH KITTENS!!!! Also, the sharks wouldnt eat the magikarp because magikarp can use splash,tackle and bounce on the shark and the shark is not a preditor of Magikarp. And thats when you find a mammal and a bird pokemon egg...

                                        I would keep it. Magikarps are cute and if I loved it as an egg, there's no reason not to love it when it hatches.

                                        Plus, fish are delicious.

                                          I would keep it of course. I do have some questions though. Is the Magikarp Psuedo-Realistic? Anyways, after it evolved I would simply hide Gyarados at my local beach (which is a walk away from my house :3 YAY!) I would also take photographic evidence of both Pokemon and then send an E-mail to Satoshi Tajiri asking him how he knew about this and if there were others...

                                          Yeah...
