I kind of like this Magikarp because it is sure powerful in its level.
Ok, so Magikarp only has 30 HP with a Soggy Rush. Most of you will think its weak. But maybe with dumb luck, you can give out a great damage. But of course, most of the people use it to evolve into Gyrados.
I doesn't really affect anything, but at least it can decrease the HP of the defending Pokemon.
Cryogonal (from Plasma Freeze) is a good combo. It helps Magikarp to find its evolution Gyrados quickly. Any cards that is search for Pokemon, except Dual Ball, is a combo with Magikarp because it helps it to find Gyrados too. Also, Rock Guard can make the defending pokemon receive 6 damages, even when Magikarp knocks out. Because it's too weak, it can one-hit KO. So a Life Drew will let your opponent gets 1 fewer prize card. That means even Magikarp is knocked out, your opponent can't get any prize cards.
No need to worry! Just ready for a potion. Knock out it with a 30-damage attack. That's enough dude.
Need only 1 Water Energy. Also, with your dumb luck, you can make a great damage.
It only gets HP 30. So it's easy to be KOed. Too bad!
When you are opening booster packs, you may get a foil Magikarp with dumb luck, but who wants?
I pretty like its artwork. That behind a splashing Magikarp, there is a palace-like building. Maybe it's really a palace and the master likes Magikarps.
I give it 7 points out of 10. Although, it's really weak, but I say again, I can really hit the defending Pokemon with great damage with dumb luck.
