    Wasn't this song played on their Magikarp website they had months ago?

      It's totally cute and hilarious at the same time.

      I can't help but think this video throws some subtle shade at people who place value on a Pokemon's strength.

      I may well have. I think the song existed a while ago but only in Japanese, and now has a dub.

      I prefer the Slowpoke song personally. Also Sunkern rivals Magikarp in weakness and particularly potential. :V

          What about Wishiwashi's solo form?

          Higher potential when reaching its school form (e.g. healing item, etc) than what Sunflora offers. :V

            ...but Sunkern has a limited use. Doesn't it learn moves like Absorb? And if we're talking about useless with moves other than Splash what about Feebas?

            Yeah, but its base stats are lower than Magikarp, and while Magikarp can evolve into Gyarados (who even has a Mega Evolution), Sunkern gets the almightly Sunflora. Magikarp meanwhile can get Bounce if we're talking one-on-one fights, so it can still do something despite a type disadvantage.

            I believe Feebas learns HMs/TMs such as Surf and Ice Beam.

              It's just misleading, I wouldn't say "Poor Magikarp", here's how strong it can be:

              I still prefer the Slowpoke song over this, but it's great nonetheless. Hopefully we see them do more silly songs like this more often, and hopefully next time it doesn't take them nearly a year to translate it.

              Oh, and Magikarp No. 1 the Jumpion forever!
