Trivia

  • Prior to version 1.0.2, nuclear Magikarp had the same sprite as regular Magikarp. This did not affect its Water/Nuclear typing or other nuclear attributes.
  • Magikarp has the lowest base stat total, as well as the lowest base HP, Attack and Special Attack stats of all Pokémon in Pokemon Uranium. It is also tied with Slothohm for having the lowest base Special Defense.
  • Magikarp belongs to a limited group of Pokémon in Uranium that cannot learn Double Team, the others being the Cubbug, Comite, Lunapup, Cassnail, and Paraudio lines.

Design origin

(From Bulbapedia) Magikarp is based on a legend about how carp that leapt over the Dragon Gate would become dragons. Several waterfalls and cataracts in China are believed to be the location of the Dragon Gate. This legend is an allegory of the drive and efforts needed to overcome obstacles. Magikarp may also be based on Asian carp, which are easily frightened by disturbances in water and can jump 8–10 feet (2.5–3 m) in the air.

Name origin

(From Bulbapedia) Magikarp's name is a combination of magic and carp, possibly mocking the Magikarp as a species, as someone with 'magic' powers is generally thought to be quite powerful, which Magikarp is not (though carp are said to be able to transform into dragons, which is magical in its own way).
