Gyarados (Japanese: ギャラドス Gyarados) is a dual-type Water/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Magikarp starting at level 20. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Gyarados using the Gyaradosite.

Biology

Gyarados with its mouth closed

Gyarados is a serpentine Pokémon with a long body covered in slightly overlapping scales. It is mostly blue with a yellow underbelly and a row of yellow spots down each side. Its mouth is very large and gaping, bearing four pointed teeth and yellow lips. It has one barbel and a small white fin on each side of its face. The barbels are white on a female and tan on a male. It has small, red eyes, a three-pointed, dark blue crest on its head, and four white, spiky dorsal fins. Gyarados's tail fin is similar in structure to the crest on its head, except with a thin, white fin spread between the points.

The process of evolution causes a change in its brain structure that is believed to cause its violent nature. Gyarados's fangs can crush stones and its scales are harder than steel. Gyarados is feared for its fierce temper and wanton destructive tendencies. It appears in times of conflict and destroys the surrounding area. Its rampages have been known to last a month at a time. Gyarados lives in both fresh and salty waters. Both Gyarados and its Mega form have demonstrated in the anime that it can leap huge distances both from the water and from the ground, usually several times its own body length.

When it Mega Evolves, Gyarados becomes bulkier. The fins on its cheeks become longer and gain a yellow tint. Its crest is larger and black, and its barbels also gain considerable length. A large spike extends downward underneath its chin, and it now has a black underside with a red stripe around the edges. The yellow spots along its body are replaced by raised red scales, which propel Mega Gyarados through the water. Two large yellow fins with blue spines appear on its back. Most of the other fins along its back disappear, replaced by two rows of blue spikes. There are now four yellowish, spiky fins near is tail: two on its back and two on its underside. While its brain has a powerful destructive instinct, it will obey a Trainer it truly trusts. Mega Gyarados is tied with Hoopa Unbound as the tallest Dark-type.

Main article: Silver's Gyarados

Gyarados debuts in Gyarados Splashes In!. Here, an enraged one attacks his own Trainer, Misty, but is recaught by Red, who returns him to her. The drastic change in attitude of the Pokémon was the result of a Team Rocket experiment as is shown in Raging Rhydon. Later on, Misty traded this Gyarados to Red in exchange for Red's Krabby which he names him Gyara. When Red borrows Blue's Charizard to travel to Mt. Silver, he temporarily trades his Gyarados to Blue. He later appears as one of Blue's Pokémon in Entranced by Entei, used against Entei, and later part of his revealed team during the Gym Leader face-off. Prior to the FireRed and LeafGreen saga, Blue returns Gyarados to Red.

A Gyarados was later seen with Lance, using its Bubble Beam to shield him from the lava of Mt. Cerise. Lance had it since it was a Magikarp, and it first appeared in Extricated from Exeggutor.

Trivia

Origin

Gyarados appears to be based on a sea dragon or sea serpent and Chinese dragon. It is also partially based on a legend about how carp that leaped over the Dragon Gate would become dragons. Several waterfalls and cataracts in China are believed to be the location of the Dragon Gate. This is referenced by Pokémon Snap, as the player needs to get a Magikarp into a waterfall to evolve it into Gyarados. This legend is an allegory of the drive and efforts needed to overcome obstacles, which can be tied to the fact that Gyarados' pre-evolved form, Magikarp, could possibly take a lot of drive and effort to legitimately evolve into Gyarados.

Gyarados's Flying type may be a reference to koinobori, a carp-shaped windsock traditionally flown to celebrate Children's Day in Japan, formerly called Tango no Sekku (端午の節句). It could also be inspired by the Inkanyamba, a giant, winged, eel that causes storms when angry, a trait Gyarados is famous for.

Name origin

Gyarados may derive from 虐殺 gyakusatsu (massacre/slaughter) or 逆境 gyakkyō (hardship/adversity)—both words relate to the creature's violent nature and the hardship it experienced before evolving. In addition, 逆 gyaku means "reverse" or "contrary", possibly referring to how Gyarados evolves from a weak Pokémon to one capable of destroying entire cities, and, in legend, how the carp goes against the flow of the waterfall in order to reach the top. It may also involve 嵐 arashi (storm) or 争い arasoi (conflict, referencing on how it appeared during wars). The last part may be from 脅す odosu (to threaten), again owing to Gyarados' violent nature.
