Right now, most people playing Pokémon Go are hunting for one thing: a golden shiny Magikarp. Oh, they’re finding shiny Magikarp alright. It’s just not turning out how they’d expect.
Now that the Pokémon Go buddy system is widely available, players everywhere are faced with a big decision: who should accompany your walking adventures? I am here to tell you, dear reader, that there is really only one choice.
Magikarp may be one of the weakest monsters in Pokémon Go, but he still managed to briefly control one of the most sought-after gyms in the entire country: the White House. It’s amazing.
Training a Magikarp has always been a tricky proposition in Pokémon games: with no moves, the giant fish is practically useless in battle. That tradition doesn’t just continue in Pokémon Go, it is taken to the next level.
Yes, the GOAT is in the newly released Pokémon Go, and boy, is he turning up in some pretty unexpected places.
Magikarp is, fins down, the most worthless Pokémon of them all, but that doesn't mean it isn't capable of transforming your upper body into a fine paste. How can this be?
Poor Magikarp. Over the past decade and a half, the flopping fish has been verbally walloped not just by Pokémon players, but by the creators who made him so pathetic in the first place.
