Flavor Text
Ruby MAGIKARP is a pathetic excuse for a POKéMON that is only capable of flopping and splashing. This behavior prompted scientists to undertake research into it.
Sapphire MAGIKARP is virtually useless in battle as it can only splash around. As a result, it is considered to be weak. However, it is actually a very hardy POKéMON that can survive in any body of water no matter how polluted it is.
Emerald Its swimming muscles are weak, so it is easily washed away by currents. In places where water pools, you can see many MAGIKARP deposited there by the flow.
FireRed It is virtually worthless in terms of both power and speed. It is the most weak and pathetic POKéMON in the world.
LeafGreen In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
