|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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 usually not 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.|
|A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.|
|X||It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. It is the most weak and pathetic Pokémon in the world.|
|Y||In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.|
|Omega 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.|
|Alpha 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.|
|Sun||Although weak and helpless, this Pokémon is incredibly fertile. They exist in such multitudes, you’ll soon grow tired of seeing them.|
|Moon||Its reckless leaps make it easy pickings for predators. On the bright side, many Pokémon enjoy longer life spans, thanks to Magikarp.|
|Ultra Sun||In the distant past, they were fairly strong, but they have become gradually weaker over time.|
|Ultra Moon||Thanks to their strong hold on life, dirty water doesn’t bother them at all. They live in waters all over the world!|
