Magikarp (Japanese: コイキング Koiking; German: Karpador; French: Magicarp; Korean: 잉어킹 Ingeoking) is a Water-type Pokémon found in nearly every body of water in the Pokémon universe.

Due to its low stats and the fact that it only has the move splash until level 15, Magikarp is often considered the weakest Pokémon in existence.

Magikarp has the Ability Swift Swim, which doubles the Pokémon's speed whenever it rains.

Magikarp evolves into Gyarados starting at Level 20.

Pokémon 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.

Name origin=

Magikarp's name is a combination of magic and carp. Its Japanese name is a combination of 鯉 koi, carp, and the English word king.

Magikarp is based on a legend about how carp that lept over the Dragon Gate would become dragons. Several waterfalls and cataracts in China are believed to be the location of the Dragon Gate. This legend is an allegory of the drive and efforts needed to overcome obstacles.
