Magikarp is the most common [[Pokémon]] in the waters of all the [[Pokémon]] regions. It can be found in every body of water in [[Kanto]], [[Johto]], [[Hoenn]], and [[Sinnoh]]. It is considered to be the weakest [[Pokémon]] because it can only use three moves. It is a hardy [[Pokémon]] that can thrive in any body of water, no matter if the water is freshwater or saltwater. It can even thrive in polluted waters. However, if it is taken care of properly, it evolves into a magnificent [[Gyarados]], at level 20. Until it reaches level 20, it is pretty much useless.
