hi I caught a gold magicarp and wasn't sure what it meant so I evolved it expecting a blue gyarados but it turned out red ? whyyyy ?

Best question ever. x)
Because your Gyarados is very angry at you for evolving it and making it lose it's gold color.
lol i was kind of gutted that it lost its gold colour :( but it still looks cool now.
That was the magikarp king!.....just kidding.   :p

The Magikarp you caught was a Shiny Magikarp, which is gold in color, and when evolved it becomes a shiny Gyarados, which is red in color.
