Well... Even though I do like Magikarp, that doesn't change the fact that it isn't very good, even in LC. Magikarp only gets five moves; Splash, Tackle, Hydro Pump, Flail and Bounce.

Since Splash doesnt do anything, that should be removed.
So now your moveset will be
-Hydro Pump/Splash

Magikarp could be used to finish off low-health opponents. Giving it a choice scarf and speed EVs can help you with that. Attack/Special Attack EVs can help you do some more damage too.
This is Smogon's Strategy guide for Magikarp.

Magikarp does not get Hydropump
Check smogon page?
I did, look at bulbapedia, pokebase and serebii, it doesn't have it, the Smogon page is incorrect
Splash is essential for late game sweeping. How else is Magikarp going to take down threats like Mega Blaziken and ExtremeKiller Arceus?
If you want a real killer, shiny magikarps learn shiny splash which is a 1 Hit KO move with 100% damage. it always goes first, ignores any stat changes or abilities etc and can't be stopped. XD

It depends on what Magikarp you are using.
If it is just any old wild Magikarp you have to use
If it is an event Magikarp (March 20, 2013-may 6 2013)(Japan)(B2/W2) you can use
Hydro Pump
Note: Bounce is an egg move so you have to breed to get it on your Magikarp.
Hope I helped!
P.S. Why would you use Magikarp?! It is just a bad Pokemon overall.
