Appearances

In the anime

Main article: Misty's Gyarados
Shiny-gyarados

A Shiny Gyarados

James's Magikarp, which he bought from a dealer, evolves into a Gyarados, which called forth four wild Gyarados to use Dragon Rage and send Ash and co flying.

A Red Gyarados is found in the Lake of Rage, north of Mahogany Town, in Johto. It is owned by the Elite Four, Lance. Lance once use the Red Gyarados to save Brock, May and Max from drowning while he is disguising as a Team Magma grunt. Misty owns a Gyarados.

Trivia

  • Despite its dragon-like appearance, it isn't Dragon-type, yet it learns Dragon Type moves such as Dragon Rage and Dragonbreath and is used by many Dragon Trainers such as Lance and Clair.
  • Despite it being a Flying-type, it can only know one Flying-type move, Bounce, and this is only because it's pre-evolution, Magikarp can learn it in Generation IV only.
  • Despite it being seen flying in the anime, it cannot learn the move, Fly.
  • Gyarados may be based on the mythological creature, the Kraken, since it's original name was going to be Skullkraken.
  • In Generation II and IV, Gyarados is the only 100%-certain shiny encounter and the first of only two shiny Pokémon to be integrated into a game's plot (the second was Celebi in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness). Due to it being a guaranteed Shiny some fans consider the red Gyarados in Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold and SoulSilver not to be a "True Shiny".
  • Gyarados, being evolved from Magikarp, which is a useless and weak Pokémon, is a reference to a common belief in Asian countries that a carp will transform into dragon after it passes through hard ordeals.
  • This was the first ever Shiny Pokémon ever seen.

Origins

Gyarados appears to based off a sea dragon or a sea serpent from China.
