Magikarp is a pathetic excuse for a Pokèmon that is only capable of flopping and splashing. This behavior prompted scientists to undertake research into it.
You can evolve Magikarp using Magikarp Candy. It will evolve into a Gyarados.
When powering up a Pokémon, its CP will increase and it will do more damage. The amount of Stardust and Candy needed depends on how much the Pokémon is already leveled up.

- Magikarp is currently the only pokémon that needs 400 candies to be evolved; you need to catch exactly 101 Magikarp to evolve one into Gyarados.
- Magikarp is pretty common in areas with a lot of water, but can also be found on land sometimes.
- Magikarps CP increases by about 10 times when it evolves, so even a weak Magikarp can become a really strong Gyarados.
