  • Magikarp is currently the only pokémon that needs 400 candies to be evolved; you need to catch exactly 101 Magikarp to evolve one into Gyarados.
  • Magikarp is pretty common in areas with a lot of water, but can also be found on land sometimes.
  • Magikarps CP increases by about 10 times when it evolves, so even a weak Magikarp can become a really strong Gyarados.
