Magikarp Love Song Debuts With a Splash in Japan

Magikarp Love Song Debuts With a Splash in Japan

The Pokémon Company has released a Japanese music video for the under-appreciated fish Pokémon Magikarp, and it’s already making a splash.

Titled “I Love Magikarp,” the 4-minute tribute to the 92nd most popular overall Pokémon in Japan tells a somber story about the fish’s progression from a weak threat to a force to be reckoned with. It’s a bit sad, really, but the song livens up as the fish evolves into the powerful Gyarados.

Fact: Magikarp takes the shortest amount of time (six Egg cycles) to hatch out of all other Pokémon.

This isn’t the first time The Pokémon Company has created a music video for a specific pocket monster. In August 2014, a catchy reggae-style song was written and performed for Slowpoke. We’re looking forward to jamming out to whatever else is in the works.

Feel free to check out the song’s video below.
