How do you get a Magikarp that knows bounce?
you need the pokewalker course:Winner's Path. Its available until June 25, 2010. just go to mystery gift, receive via wifi/wfc, and wait! you just walk enough to get ten watts so you can catch a Pokemon, and youll usually find magikarps knowing bounce. you can also find munchlax knowing selfdestruct, horsea knowing muddy water, duskull knowing impriosn, beldum knowing zen headbutt, and bronzor knowing trick ROM i think. its stupid cuz all of the moves that they have are egg moves or level up moves or tms except selfdestruct
zen headbutt-learns as metang
magikarp has horrable moves it only knows tackle,flail and splash.but if your patient on training it you could evolve it into a gyarados and gyarados is amazing. So dont give up on your magikarp, give it an exp share or something so it evolves faster. o and get rid of splash as fast as possible, all it does it flail pointlessly in a puddle..........
By world's opinion, it is considered one of the weakest Pokemon in the games. It only knows Splash, Tackle, and Flail, regardless being a Water-type. It has critically low stats with Speed being its highest. (80) Fortunately, after a nightmare of training the Magikarp, it can evolve at level 20 into Gyarados, which has higher stats and a lot better moveset than Magikarp.
Well, to be honest, i don't know when it learns water moves. In Ruby, Emerald and Sapphire, Magikarp learns Tackle around level 15. My Magikarp is level 16, and only knows Splash and Tackle. And for everyone who doesnt understand Magikarps existance, it evolves into an extremly powerful pokemon- GYARADOS!
