Magikarp's Official Love Song Gets English Version
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Last year, Pokémon's running gag Water-type got an official love song and dance routine. The song was completely in Japanese and celebrated Magikarp's status as the weakest Pokémon with a useless starting move.
The official Pokémon YouTube channel is now streaming an English version of the melody.
Although Magikarp is Pokémon's least effective monster, the fish has been getting some extra attention recently. A teaser website for the Hanero! Koiking (Splash! Magikarp) smartphone game for iOS and Android devices launched earlier this year. The Yokohama Kurikoan taiyaki (fish-shaped cake) shop released custard-filled Magikarp sweets too. A Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon player reported beating the game with a single Magikarp in November.
