(1) When confused, Magikarp takes less damage from himself than any other pokemon except Onix!
(2) Magikarp has the 7th-highest speed and 14th-highest Defense of all pokemon available in Petit cup!
(3) Of the few Petit pokemon with higher defense than Magikarp, all are slower than him.
(4) The three 120-power attacks with the highest average damazge -- Blizzard, Fire Blast, and Hydro Pump -- all do only half damage to Magikarp!
(5) Magikarp gets the STAB bonus with Splash!
(6) Between his Speed and Tackle, Magikarp is a great finisher for those enemy pokemon with only 1 HP left!
(7) Magikarp is faster than several fully-evolved water pokemon: Blastoise, Kingler, Dewgong, Poliwrath, Cloyster, Seaking, Vaporeon, Lapras, and Omastar!
(8) With Magikarp, you won't have to worry about deciding on a moveset -- just about everyone agrees on the best one!

So go ahead, use Magikarp and laugh at the fools who tell you that's a bad idea!

*falls over laughing*

Magikarp gets no STAB with splash. He's a water type and splash is normal.

Are you sure?

Well, he does so much damage with Splash you won't notice the lack of STAB!

Hmm i think i hav a 9th reason to put magikarp in your ACTUAL team, thats right up there with your lev 100s. Well u just get magikarp in your team then when u play someone they see magikarp in your team and u either say
-'haha i beat u and i had a mgikarp in my team! Haha your crap'
or
-'Oh well the only reason i lost is cause i lent my game to a friend to play on for a few minutes and he put magikarp in my team while i wasn't looking'

USELESS POKEMON FACT:
Magikarp is a fish with only bones and hard scales, it can't be eaten.

So, uhhh, no more bbq.

Heh, not only does he make you lots of money, but he is great in battle AND is great eatin'! (False on all above counts.) You can't make it fight worth anything, show me a Pokmon that isn't a magikarp that LOST to one, and I'll show you a severe level disadvantage. Can't be eaten, unless you enjoy bones and scales. Can't be sold, except to the most gullible fools around. CAN be evolved, into a better Pokmon (not among the top ranks, but maybe that is different in G/S). The evolved form is the only saving grace.

Um, why are you staring at me like that? What's that behind your back? Get back, get back!

Magikarp! Yeah! We should make a magikarp theme song...

'Who's the 'karp with the most?
Magikarp!
Who's the fish with the swish?
Magikarp!
Who's got the most style?
Magikarp!
Oh yeah, Magikarp RuLz!'
*runs from rotten tomatoes hurled at him*

But you forgot one important point on your fifth point - though he doesn't get STAB for splash, he's the ONLY pokmon who has splash when you catch him! He also has whiskers - yellow ones, so you can tell he's old and wise (and the whiskers are delicious).

Magikarp is also less vulnerable to electric attacks than gyarados - that means he can take as good as he gets ( ) in long, drawn-out battles! Yes!
But then there's the shame factor when you win with a magikarp ("You cheated! We said no cheap pok-battles, and you had a magikarp! WAAH!!!")
But all in all, Magikarp is obviously King.
I should add this to my sig, "Don't mess with the 'Karp!"

Uhh... how about if I show you a pokemon that lost to a Kakuna and a Weedle? I was playing around with Metronopme, and L50 rental Alakazam metronomed Rage, and ran into a Kakuna (who got lucky with Poison Sting) and a Weedle. >_<

Heh, I once used the rental Magikarp in the Ultra Ball Prime Cup against that Lab Man's Ditto... The King of Karp beat it by a mile! It's technically not a Magikarp(just disguised as one), so nyaahhhh...!
