Shiny Level 99 Magikarp Event Coming to Pokémon Black and White 2…No, Really

magikarp

There’s a new event coming to Pokémon Black and White 2, and it’s not quite what you’d expect. March 20th 2013 to May 6th 2013, the Pokémon Centre in Nagoya is celebrating its move into a new building by distributing a shiny level 99 Magikarp to Japanese gamers. This very special Magikarp comes with the moves Flail, Hydro Pump, Bounce and Splash (of course) and will be holding a Rare Candy. Hopefully this won’t remain exclusive to Japan, and Pokémon fans overseas will be able to get their hands on it too.

    I want a Magikarp that knows Hydro Pump. Screw evolving it with the Rare Candy. xD

    Give the Magikarp a rare candy, then evolve it and cancel the evolution. Now you have a badass level 100 Magikarp.

    …I can’t help but wonder… Why Magikarp? Like, there has to be a reason.

      Because it’s funny? Magikarp is one of the most popular pokemon because it’s so weak and hilarious, so they’re giving away a super powerful shiny one.

      Nagoya, where the Pokémon Center is, is commonly associated with a golden tiger carp

    I would laugh so much if it was a level 100 Magikarp.
