Can I really still claim this as Pokemon of the Week at this point?

Magikarp


- Gen 4 Normal Sprite

- Gen 4 Shiny Sprite


Spoiler for Why you should catch a Magikarp:



Even the anime creators knows how fucking incredible Magikarp is, which caused them to give Magikarp a tribute episode called 'Ya See We Want An Evolution!' In said episode, Magikarp beat Piplup and then went to a fucking draw with Ash's Pikachu straight after. (I wish I could say I was joking here, but I'm not..)




Pokédex



Red / Blue - In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.

Yellow - Famous for being very unreliable. It can be found swimming in seas, lakes, rivers and shallow puddles.

Stadium - Whoever its opponent, and however horrible the attack it receives, all it does is Splash around.

Gold - An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more than seven feet.
Silver - For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like Pidgeotto to catch it mid-jump.

Crystal - This weak and pathetic Pokémon gets easily pushed along rivers when there are strong currents.

Stadium 2 - An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more than seven seven feet.

Ruby - Magikarp is a pathetic excuse for a Pokémon that is only capable of flopping and splashing. This behavior prompted scientists to undertake research into it.

Sapphire - Magikarp is virtually useless in battle as it can only splash around. As a result, it is considered to be weak. However, it is actually a very hardy Pokémon that can survive in any body of water no matter how polluted it is.

Emerald - Its swimming muscles are weak, so it is easily washed away by currents. In places where water pools, you can see many Magikarp deposited there by the flow.

FireRed - It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. It is the most weak and pathetic Pokémon in the world.

LeafGreen - In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.

Diamond - It is said to be the world's weakest Pokémon. No one knows why it has managed to survive.

Pearl - It is unable to swim against even slow-moving currents. It always splashes about for some reason.

Platinum - A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.

HeartGold - An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more than seven feet.

SoulSilver - For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like Pidgeotto to catch it mid-jump.

Black / White - A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.

Black 2 / White 2 - A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.

One Moveset To Rule Them All

Spoiler for One Set To Find Them:




Magikarp - Choice Scarf / Focus Sash / Choice Band / Life Orb / Leftovers / Air Balloon / Eject Button / Stick
Swift Swim
Jolly / Adamant
4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Speed

~ Splash
~ Tackle
~ Flail
~ Bounce


With the nerf of Explosion and Selfdestruct in Gen 5, Magikarp lost out in its main use as a sacrifice to switch in when the opponent goes boom. However, it still hits a respectable 426 with Jolly and Choice Scarf attached, so you might be able to revenge kill a low-health Dragonite or something. Putting Sandstorm up would do exactly the same thing for all the damage you're dishing out, but let's work with what we have here.

Focus Sash is good for making Flail work, especially to lead with. The other items are only mentioned because they are all just about as useful overall.

Feebas does this better.
