Title Entry
First Pokémon generation
Pokémon Red and Blue In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
Pokémon Yellow Famous for being very unreliable. It can be found swimming in seas, lakes, rivers and shallow puddles.
Pokémon Stadium Whoever its opponent, and however horrible the attack it receives, all it does is Splash around.
Second Pokémon generation
Pokémon Gold An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more than seven feet.
Pokémon Silver For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like Pidgeotto to catch it mid-jump.
Pokémon Crystal This weak and pathetic Pokémon gets easily pushed along rivers when there are strong currents.
Third Pokémon generation
Pokémon 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.
Pokémon 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.
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.
Pokémon FireRed It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. It is the most weak and pathetic Pokémon in the world.
Pokémon LeafGreen In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
Fourth Pokémon generation
Pokémon Diamond It is said to be the world's weakest Pokémon. No one knows why it has managed to survive.
Pokémon Pearl It is unable to swim against even slow-moving currents. It always splashes about for some reason.
Pokémon Platinum A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.
Pokémon HeartGold An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more than seven feet.
Pokémon SoulSilver For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like Pidgeotto to catch it mid-jump.
Fifth Pokémon generation
Pokémon Black A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.
Pokémon White A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.
Pokémon Black 2 A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.
Pokémon White 2 A Magikarp living for many years can leap a mountain using Splash. The move remains useless, though.
Sixth Pokémon generation
Pokémon X It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. It is the most weak and pathetic Pokémon in the world.
Pokémon Y In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
Pokémon 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.
Pokémon 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.
Seventh Pokémon generation
Pokémon Sun Although weak and helpless, this Pokémon is incredibly fertile. They exist in such multitudes, you'll soon grow tired of seeing them.
Pokémon Moon Its reckless leaps make it easy pickings for predators. On the bright side, many Pokémon enjoy longer life spans, thanks to Magikarp.
