United States Pokémon Stadium2 An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more then seven feet.
United States Pokémon Red In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
United States Pokémon Blue In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
Japan Pokémon Stadium あいてが どんなポケモンでも どんなに  おそろしい わざを しかけようとも ただ はねる。
United States Pokémon Stadium Whoever its opponent, and however horrible the attack it receives, all it does is Splash around.
United States Pokémon Yellow Famous for being very unreliable. It can be found swimming in seas, lakes, rivers, and shallow puddles.
United States Pokémon Gold An underpowered, pathetic Pokemon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but never more than seven feet.
United States Pokémon Silver For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like Pidgeotto to catch it mid-jump.
United States Pokémon Ruby Magikarp is a pathetic excuse for a Pokemon that is only capable of flopping and splashing. This behavior prompted scientists to undertake research into it.
United States Pokémon 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 POKeMON that can survive in any body of water no matter how polluted it is.
United States Pokémon 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.

United States Pokémon LeafGreen In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.

United States Pokémon Diamond It is said to be the world's weakest Pokémon. No one knows why it has managed to survive.

United States Pokémon HeartGold An underpowered, pathetic Pokémon. It may jump high on rare occasions, but usually not more than seven feet.
United States Pokémon SoulSilver For no reason, it jumps and splashes about, making it easy for predators like PIDGEOTTO to catch it mid-jump.

United States Pokémon Shield This weak and pathetic Pokémon gets easily pushed along rivers when there are strong currents.
