Main article: Misty's Gyarados

James' 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 as well.

Trivia

  • Despite its dragon-like appearance, it isn't Dragon-type, yet it can learn Dragon Type moves such as Dragon Rage and Dragon Breath and is used by many Dragon Trainers such as Lance and Clair.
    • When it Mega Evolves, it does not gain the  Dragon-type, instead gaining the  Dark-type
  • Despite it being a Flying-type, it can only learn one Flying-type move, Bounce, and this is only because its pre-evolution, Magikarp can learn it in Generation IV only.
  • Despite it being seen flying in the anime, it cannot learn the move, Fly.
  • This was the first ever Shiny Pokémon ever seen.
  • If Mega Evolved, it is a Water and Dark type Pokémon.
  • Because of it's Mega Evolution, Gyarados is the only Dark type Generation I Pokémon.

Origins

  • Gyarados appears to based off a sea dragon or a sea serpent from China.
  • This Pokémon may also be based off of Utuboros from the Megaman games.
  • 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 a dragon after it passes through hard ordeals.
