    On March 20, there will be an event in Japan that distributes a level 99 Shiny Magikarp holding a Rare Candy, with the moves Splash, Flail, Bounce, and Hydro Pump.

    This marks the first time it will be possible to have a Magikarp with 4 moves without including Splash.

    Random quick damage calculation for teh lulz:

    Modest Magikarp@Choice Specs in the rain with 252 EVs in SpAtk
    using Hydro Pump on
    Ho-oh's Tank set (Adamant, Leftovers, 248 HP EVs, 84 SpDef EVs)*
    *(The Ho-oh set in the analysis that takes the LEAST damage from Water moves)

    = 54% - 64.1% (guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock, guaranteed 2HKO without Stealth Rock after Leftovers)

    ...

    I'm sure hydro pump Magikarp will be effecting LC and NU massively :)

    Magikarp on NU rain teams with swift swim and a scarf...
    Clearly Magikarp will be up for suspect discussion!

    celever rofl. Seriously though, that's impressive on Ho-Oh, even if it is in the rain.

    This thread is bad, lol. Magikarp is absolutely worthless.
