Magikarp is most definitely the most loved and most powerful Pokemon of all time and could probably blast Mewtwo and Arceus with its most devastating attack SPLASH, in one decisive strike. OK fine, we’re kidding, as Magikarp may just well be the most useless Pokemon out there. The Pokemon Company recently celebrated that legendary uselessness with a new official song titled “I Love Magikarp.”
Here is what the song actually means, according to Kantopia:
Helpless and pathetic
Famous for being incredibly weak
Was it extremely powerful in ancient times? There are legends that say so, but
Today it’s extremely weak. So weak that it makes you cry!
The weak Pokémon Magikarp, the weakest of them all
The weak Pokémon Magikarp, so shockingly weak
Splashing about, always splashing
It can splash and splash up and through entire mountains
Why does it splash? Splashing for no reason, splashing even in battle with no purpose
Splashing in rhythm, on and on, and sometimes getting caught by a Pidgeotto!
The splashing Pokémon Magikarp, splashing the most of them all
The splashing Pokémon Magikarp, always jumping with a “flop flop!”
You can first encounter it anywhere
Using an old rod will make you fish out way too many
The sea, river, or even a dirty puddle –It will be found swimming in any body of water
It paddles along regardless of if the river is calm or flowing
If you manage to catch one: “Catch and release?” will probably cross your mind soon
If you manage to catch one: “Catch and eat?” What nonsense!
Even when it is shiny, with a golden color
It is still exactly the same on the inside
When it evolves into Gyarados, it becomes super strong. But waiting until then is really tough!
That old guy sold it for 500P! And with no refunds!
The unfortunate Pokémon Magikarp, it gets booed even when trying to help people
The unfortunate Pokémon Magikarp, nowhere near the top ranks
My Pokémon Magikarp, the one I’ll still continue to raise!
My Pokémon Magikarp, I’ll raise a party of six and fight with them!
The Magikarp we love, the one we love most in the world
The Magikarp I love, I dedicate this love song to you!
Such love, such passion! Magikarp really are awesome!
Magikarp rewards those that use it, by becoming Gyarados.
